Elvis Cole is just a detective who can't say no, especially to a girl in a terrible fix. And Jennifer Sheridan qualifies: Her fiance, 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 cop in the LAPD will be gunning for a pair of escaped armed-and-dangerous killers - Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. Download and start listening now!

Quotes & Awards

  • “The plot, riddled with bad cops, gangs, and corruption in high places, provides enough excitement and twists to be fun. True, some of the snap has gone out of Elvis Cole's repartee, but Joe Pike is as enigmatic a hero as he ever was. An engaging performance by James Daniels keeps things moving. Daniels provides even the least interesting characters with inner lives by the subtlest change in his tone. With equal touches of irony and insight, he makes Elvis and Joe a great way to spend an evening.”

    " #4 in the Elvis Cole series... I love the characters and dialogue. Another fun mystery by Robert Crais. It always amazes me how much Cole & Pike get away with as detectives. Lots of action, especially as the plot thickens. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mo Shah | 9/7/2013

    " Another Elvis Cole novel. Another quick read with fun characters and slick writing. Again, a novel title that has nothing to do with anything. "

    " I always love a smartass and Elvis Cole is a professional! This was my first Cole novel but not my last. An enjoyable read that created impressive page-turning tension more than once. I didn't buy some of the basic premise but I was willing and happy to still go along for the ride. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth Schneider | 12/9/2012

    " some writing quirks when describing emotions (e.g. He gave me sullen.) but enjoyable and well thought out. the main character gets saved a lot by his friends which I enjoyed-- a protagonist who knows he can't do it all on his own. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jay | 7/26/2012

    " This was a typical Elvis Cole novel although not one of the best. It was a fun quick read and I would recommend it for light reading. "

    " This is the first Robert Crais book I've read but will undoubtedly seek out more--I just love these guys. Fun exciting page-turner, with hero smart-mouthing his way through dirty cops and street gangs--not a smart thing to do, but it works well for a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steve | 5/15/2011

    " Re-read the Elvis Cole 3rd book, first published in 1993.
    Elvis and Joe Pike come up against a team of bad cops when Elvis is hired by the girlfriend of their newest member. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tom | 4/10/2011

    " Crais continues to rock it. The first third slipped a little into some old habits, but after that, it's all awesome. He's able to take some over the top moments and make you believe. You really want the bad guys to get what's coming their way - so you know he did a good job. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Beth | 3/24/2011

    " Very good, yet quite violent. Why do they always kill the characters you like? "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Elena | 8/29/2010

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rosey | 6/19/2010

    " The Elvis Cole books are easy and fun to read. They can be really serious, but Robert Crais kind of mixes the serious with funny cracks here and there. I like his sidekick Joe Pike, he's like a ghost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Rhod | 6/4/2010

    " The fourth Elvis Cole adventure involving some renegade police and gang bangers - different kind of a story, but a good one. "

    " Interesting 4th Cole / Pike novel, this time sees the duo come up against corrupt cops, following taking on a case to investigate a clients fiance.. This series is a real grower for me having not really liked the 1st in series. I look forward to seeing how the characters develop.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 woody | 5/27/2010

    " I enjoy the Elvis Cole series. Maybe because it reminds me of Harlan Coben's Myron Bolitar and Win series. Detective with a sense of humor and a soft spot for people who can't afford his rates. Too much bad language is the only downfall. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 KarenLee | 5/23/2010
