Elvis Cole's relationship with attorney Lucy Chenier is strained. When she moved from Louisiana to join Elvis in Los Angeles, she never dreamed that violence would so easily touch her life -- but then the unthinkable happens. While Lucy is away on business and her ten-year-old son, Ben, is staying with Elvis, Ben disappears without a trace. Desperate to believe that the boy has run away, evidence soon mounts to suggest a much darker scenario. Joining forces with his enigmatic partner, Joe Pike, Elvis frantically searches for Ben with the help of LAPD Detective Carol Starkey, as Lucy's wealthy, oil-industry ex-husband attempts to wrest control of the investigation. Amid the maelstrom of personal conflicts, Elvis and Joe are forced to consider a more troubling lead -- one indicating that Ben's disappearance is connected to a terrible, long-held secret from Elvis Cole's past. Venturing deep inside a complex psyche, Crais explores Elvis' need for family - the military that embraced him during a troubled adolescence, his rock-solid partnership with Pike, and his floundering relationship with Lucy - as they race the clock in their search for Ben. The Last Detective is Robert Crais' richest, most intense tale of suspense yet. Download and start listening now!

    " Likely the best Crais novel I've read yet! "

    " I guess I really loved this book, because I stayed up until 1:30 AM unable to put it down until it was finished. I know I love these guys. In this book Crais exposes greater dimensions of character in his heroes and treats us to a deeper glimpse into the history and heart of Elvis Cole. Some male readers bemoan this trend in his later books, but I think female readers generally like to know the heart, mind, personality of the characters to truly enjoy a thriller and for me that is what moves a page-turner from good to great--not just unfolding a gripping plot but also getting inside the skin of realistic human characters. My one complaint is that the last quarter of the plot and the final shoot out were too similar to The Watchman, which I just happened to read the night before, which made it too easy to see what was going on in this story. If I hadn't have read the Watchman first, I'm sure I would have loved this book even more. "

    " Crais was recommended by several folks - wasn't sure I was going to like the plot as it started up, but it became a really suspenseful tale - hard to put down. Now I want to read some more books written by him. "
