As far as Robert Crais books goes this one is very good. This is in the private eye Elvis Cole series and the action is moving along nicely here. I highly recommend this one.
This is the 5th installment of the Elvis Cole, P.I. series. I like it enough to read more of the series. From the cover: L.A. private investigator Elvis Cole is hired by a popular TV star to delve into her past and identify her biological parents who gave her up for adoption. It seems clear cut. But when he gets to Louisiana, he finds that there's something much darker going on. Other people are looking and some are turning up dead. When Cole realizes that his employer knew more than she was telling, this becomes a twisting tale of identity, secrets and murder.
Elvis Cole in the Louisiana Bayou - with attitude
This was the first Robert Crais book I read - and I LOVED IT! So much that I've requested (on PaperBackSwap)the other books he has written. I look forward to reading them...
I love the Elvis Cole series by Robert Crais and this is no exception!
Voodoo River is one of the best Elvis Cole stories!
I like Robert Crais so this is was a good read for me! Easy to read and some good twists and turns. Great Elvis Cole novel
This is a very well plotted mystery involving a TV star, a private adoption, illegal aliens and police corruption. Hell there's a little bit of everything in this one. A few twists and even a few surprises. Heck, there's even a romance involved. Elvis Cole is a rather creative private investigator. I enjoyed this book and will certainly read more by Robert Crais.
I like all of the Elvis Cole books. I enjoyed it, but it isn't one of my favorites.
Thouroughly enjoyed. Another Elvis Cole book.
Elvis Cole is hired to find a television star's biological parents who gave her up for adoption. He goes to Louisiana and starts searching and of course runs into all kinds of trouble.
An excellent Elvis Cole mystery. This is the book where Elvis meets Lucy Chenier in New Orleans where he goes to investigate whether a TV star's birth mother who gave her up for adoption 36 years ago lives. Of course it's not that simple and Elvis get's tangled up in immigrant trafficking and murder....
Fifth installment in Crais's Elvis Cole series
On a trip to Louisiana in order to locate the biological parents of a popular television actress, private eye Elvis Cole runs into more than he bargained for.
This was my first Elvis Cole book and I just loved it. It's written quite well and Elvis is full of fun. Takes place in Louisianna. Watch out for the turtle!
L.A. private detective Elvis Cole is hired by a well known television star to delve into her past and find her biological parents.
Cole discovers his client knew more than she is telling and ends up dealing with a weird tale of identity, secrets and murder.
The TENTH book in the series featuring Elvis Cole & Joe Pike, a pair of Hollywood private eyes in Los Angeles, California.
Robert Crais has become one of my favorite authors with his wise-cracking character of Elvis Cole.
Excellent story with lots of adventure and heart. More concentration on Elvis Cole; not as much Pike in this one. A real page turner.
I did not finish this book.
I was just getting in the groove with the Elvis Cole series, really enjoying them. Then I read "Voodoo River", which because it takes place mostly in Louisiana, is way out of the box. Now I'm really hooked. Crais really flexes his writing talents with this one, and you get super involved in what's going on. I thought the ending was a little contrived, like I'm going, "where is Crais going with this?", but then he smoothes it all over, and left me wanting to pick up the next one in the series right away. I really like the Elvis Cole stories, I bet you will too.
as with all the Crais books I have read, this one also keeps you glued to the book to the very end. It is very hard to set it down.
