Private investigator Elvis Cole and his enigmatic partner, Joe Pike, are back on the case in this brilliant new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robert Crais.

        Adele Schumacher isn't a typical worried mom. When she hires Elvis to find her missing son, a controversial podcaster named Josh Shoe, she brings a bag filled with cash, bizarre tales of government conspiracies, and a squad of professional bodyguards. Finding Josh should be simple, but Elvis quickly learns he isn't alone in the hunt—a deadly team of mysterious strangers are determined to find Josh and his adult film star girlfriend first.
        With dangerous secrets lurking behind every lead, Elvis needs his friend Joe Pike more than ever to uncover the truth about Josh, corrupt politicians, and the vicious business cartels rotting the heart of Los Angeles from within. And when Elvis's estranged girlfriend, Lucy Chenier, and her son, Ben, return, he learns just how much he has to lose...if he survives.
        Written with the heart, humor, and relentless suspense for which Crais is famous, Racing the Light delivers Elvis Cole's most dangerous case yet.

    Read all of the Elvis Come books. This was predictable with too too much filler.
  • Not a full book…….do not buy

    Nice noir feel to the dialogue and intriguing characters were pluses in this mystery. The plot seemed quite improbable and contrived. Lots of stereotypes but I enjoyed it as an entertaining page turner. Maybe it’s not the author’s best effort?
  • Cole and Pike still have it.

    By RayTrader
    More relaxed, lower key than most Elvis books but maintains interest nonetheless. I would prefer more action and more Pike presence, however, it’s nice to see Lucy back in the picture.
