Hollywood's newest wunderkind is Peter Alan Nelson, the brilliant, erratic director known as the King of Adventure. His films make billions, but his manners make enemies. What the boy king wants, he gets, and what Nelson wants is for Elvis Cole to comb the country for the airhead wife and infant child the film-school flunkout dumped en route to becoming the third biggest filmmaker in America. It's the kind of case Cole can handle in his sleep - until it turns out to be a nightmare. For when Cole finds Nelson's wife in a small Conneticut town, she's nothing like what he expects. The lady has some unwanted—and very nasty—mob connections, which means Elvis could be opening the East Coast branch of his P.I. office…at the bottom of the Hudson River.

    " Imagine my delight when I discovered that there are 2 Elvis Cole/Joe Pike books I missed. This is one of them. It is the third in the series. Elvis traces the long lost wife and son of a major Hollywood action film director who is a faintly comic and self-centered character. It turns out that the missing wife is embroiled in mob-related complications, but that is only the beginning of a thrill ride that puts Elvis and Joe's brilliantly brave mastery of circumstance to the test.
