Continuing Robert Crais novels we return to an Elvis Cole / Joe Pike story.
Elvis Cole’s girlfriend, Lucy, is out of town, and she has left her young son Ben in Elvis’s care. Elvis and Lucy have had a few problems lately – not least over his job as a private investigator which somehow repeatedly puts her and her son in danger. But at last things seem to be getting better.
Then Ben is kidnapped and it appears that the kidnapper has a grudge with something from Cole’s past – which means we find out a lot more about Elvis Cole’s back story.
Again with Robert Crais this is excellent and clever plot that keeps moving.
