When a 15-year-old girl shows up to plead with Elvis to find her errant father, his first impulse is to hand the case over to Social Services. But he sees how hard the kid is working to keep her two siblings together and afloat. The father sounds like an angel; the case should be a cinch. But as Elvis investigates, he finds the dad seems to be a mover in the criminal underworld who is on the verge of a grand scheme. Could this be the right guy? As Elvis and sidekick Joe Pike try their hand at babysitting, events are set in motion that will pit them against a scary group of counterfeiters—and the even scarier U.S. Marshals.

    " I'd heard a lot about this author, but never came across any of his books until this week. I think I finished it in 24 hrs - tight, fast but a little too much about the road network of LA. Greatly entertaining escapism for me - the kind of stuff I love. 4 star for me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bcoghill Coghill | 2/8/2014

    " Good satsfying mystery with colorful characters. Skims the surface but that is okay in an every-now-and-then novel. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Slappy McGee | 2/6/2014

    " Continuing in the Elvis Cole series. Good stuff from Cole in this book. Ending was a bit predictable, but some things in it were not. So thumbs up. I do love me the Elvis Cole. Great character. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Adam | 2/3/2014

    " More good stuff. Not quite as good as the last one, hence the 3 stars....but very enjoyable all the same. Looking forward to the next one in the series, LA Requiem. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe O'c | 1/16/2014

    " Excellent; Continuing character: Elvis Cole; private eye takes on case from three children to find their father, who turns out to be a former counterfeiter on the run from Russian mobsters while looking to score one more time. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nan | 1/16/2014

    " Standard Elvis Cole -- Which I always enjoy as a "tweener" book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Louise | 1/2/2014

    " #7 elvis cole "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ben | 12/26/2013

    " Not really that bad, but just feels like it's kind of puttering along trying to move some larger story along. Plus, there's a fair amount of the story that just seems to be filler. Readable, but so far the weakest of the Elvis Cole novels. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Beck | 12/10/2013

    " One of the better of the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series in my opinion. Elvis and Joe help 3 children and their father survive the Russian mob. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ernie | 11/6/2013

    " One of the better stories, enjoy each of these books because they entertain, are relatively short, and enjoy the quips and sarcasm of the author. In this story Elvis is caught off guard several times, not his normal self! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom | 10/7/2013

    " Great Elvis book. Lots of suspense and tension, but as always, Crais's backdrop to his story carries emotional weight. I think Crais has a lot to say about "important" topics, and uses his action/suspense stories to tell it. Crais continues to build his skill set - just getting better and better. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sara | 9/6/2013

    " Not the best of this series but in for a penny, in for a pound "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Victoria | 7/19/2013

    " Elvis Cole may be my new favorite PI! (But I have no clue what this title has to do with the plot. Did I miss something?) "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joe | 5/24/2013

    " Interesting 7th Elvis Cole novel, this time involving kids that need him to investigate their missing wayward father. I enjoyed once again and am also enjoying the development of Cole and more serious type of novel. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Richard | 4/5/2013

    " Good story, typical Elvis Cole the good guy, but a bit unbelievable towards the end. My rating 3.5. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 4/5/2013

    " Gotta love Elvis Cole! This time he is after counterfeiters! A fun, fast read "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jillian | 4/1/2013

    " As always Robert Crais delivers a captivating roller coaster of intrigue, suspense, violence and characters that you want to see through to the end. I enjoyed this book and look forward to more adventures with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. Highly recommended. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Clare F | 10/17/2012

    " Fab book as always. Love Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. That covers it all really ! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wayne Zurl | 9/21/2012

    " On his website, Robert Crais asks that readers not judge his abilities by his earlier books. This 1997 edition to the Elvis Cole series was quite good, with all the necessary elements of a private eye story and an almost happy ending. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Greg | 5/2/2012

    " Vintage Robert Crais...in the style of Robert B. Parker, but not as ponderous, a little more light-hearted. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gina | 3/20/2012

    " Not quite as wry and dry as his other book, The Monkey's Raincoat. Still, it's a good read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Juanita | 1/27/2012

    " This series is keeping me up at night reading the next page!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Penny Ramirez | 1/17/2012

    " I really enjoyed reading this series, but listening made Elvis and Joe come alive. David Stuart does a fantastic job with the deadpan sarcasm that is the hallmark of this series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beth | 12/14/2011

    " ...not my favorite Elvis Cole mystery, but I will continue to read Robert Crais nonetheless! "

    " This was a surprise. I picked this up because it was sitting in the break room at work. I didn't expect to like it as much as I did. A very quick, fun read. Must admit I really like the Elvis Cole character. I will definitely pick up more of this series. "

    " I thought the plot was very interesting with the family in Wintess Protection and how the children of the family had to grow up faster. As well as reading about the process of making counterfit money. I'm not quite sure how the title relates to the story, but it was a fun read. "

    " Very enjoyable! I guessed the last couple of plot twists, but that's OK. I always like reading more about Elvis and Joe, and the new characters were also appealing (my favorite was Charles). These books just click along. "
