Starting to run out of Robert Crais novels! This book opens with a body being found and the police come to see Elvis Cole. Some years ago Elvis was hired to investigate the alibi of a murder suspect, Lionel Byrd, for his defense lawyer. Elvis finds the evidence, the case is dropped and it is history, until Byrd kills himself while holding evidence of not only that murder but others both before and after Elvis helped him walk free.
So is everything as it appears, did Elvis make a mistake and is he responsible in some way for the further murders that took place?
As ever with these stories everything is fast paced and keeps you guessing as a complex plot unfolds.
