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 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...

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.

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.

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....

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.
