“A thoughtful and powerful page turner.”—People

Elvis Cole is just a detective who can't say no, especially to a girl in a terrible fix. And Jennifer Sheridan qualifies: Her fiancé, Mark Thurman, is a decorated LA cop with an elite plainclothes unit, but Jennifer's sure he's in trouble—the kind of serious trouble that only Elvis Cole can help him out of.

Five minutes after his new client leaves his office, Elvis and his partner, the enigmatic Joe Pike, are hip-deep in a deadly situation as they plummet into a world of South Central gangs, corrupt cops, and conspiracies of silence. And before the case is through, every copy in the LAPD will be gunning for a pair of escaped armed-and-dangerous killers—Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

“Elvis Cole provides more fun for the reader than any L.A. private eye to come along in years.”—Joseph Wambaugh 

“Elvis lives, and he's on his way to being crowned the king of detectives.”—Booklist


  • I would read it again.

    It was OK. Maybe what I needed to take my mind off of the rest of the world.
  • Love Robert Crais’s story line

    The Elvis Cole & Joe Pike stories are so well written I don’t even bother sampling them. As soon as I finish one I just buy the next because they are so well written and entertaining, these books are so smoothly and so personally written I feel like I’m reading about people I’ve known for a long while. I’d recommend to anyone looking for a solid story that will keep them interested and staying up late to finish. So glad I came across this author.
  • Brilliant storyteller

    Mr. Craig's know how to weave an entertaining story better than just about anyone. This is not one of his best, but still a very entertaining read.
