When Ellen Lang's husband disappears with their son, she hires Elvis Cole to track him down. A quiet and seemingly submissive wife, Ellen can't even write a check without him. All she wants is to get him and her son back - no questions asked.

The search for Ellen's errant husband leads Elvis into the seamier side of Hollywood. He soon learns that Mort Lang is a down-on-his-luck talent agent who associates with a schlocky movie producer, and the last place he was spotted was at a party thrown by a famous and very well-connected ex-Matador. But no one has seen him since - including his B-movie girlfriend.

At the same time the police find Mort in his parked car with four gunshots in his chest - and no kid in sight - Ellen disappears. Now nothing is what it seems, and the heat is on. It's up to Elvis Cole and his partner Joe Pike to find the connection between sleazy Hollywood players and an ex-Matador.

    " Read this series out of order but does it really matter? Elvis Cole deserves love either way so as long as you read these books, i think he will keep his callous sense of humor. "

    " One of the best "noir" style novels I've ever had the pleasure of reading. "

    " On page 34 of The Monkey's Raincoat, Elvis Cole visited a female friend to get some information. As he left her office, he "squeezed her butt." At this point, I seriously considered putting the book aside. I'm glad I didn't. As I read on, I came to appreciate Crais' fleshed-out characters and subtle humor. Cole grew on me, so I sure hope he doesn't treat any other women this way in later novels. I'm looking forward to seeing how Crais develops as an author in his later novels. "

    " I have enjoyed Elvis Cole and Joe Pike in Crais' newer books and have decided to go back and try the beginning books. This one was really really good. Pick really evoked a remarkable character change in the victim, and Elvis and Pike took their share of hits for sure. Overall, for a first book, I'm pleased it was nominated for so many awards and won quite a few. "
