L.A. private eye Elvis Cole is hired by popular television star Jodie Taylor to delve into her past and identify the biological parents who gave her up for adoption thirty-six years before. Cole's assignment is to find out their biological history and report back. It seems all too clear cut. But when he gets to Louisiana and begins his search, he finds out there's something much darker going on. Other people are also looking for Taylor's parents; and some are ending up dead. And when Cole realizes that his employer knew more than she was telling, Voodoo River becomes a twisting tale of identity, secrets, and murder. Download and start listening now!


Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bruce Snell | 2/16/2014

    " Book five in the Elvis Cole series by Robert Crais - 3.5 Stars. Elvis is hired to go to Louisiana to find the birth parents of a TV actress. Along the way to solving that mystery, Elvis uncovers a blackmail plot, trafficking in illegal aliens, a couple murders, and a 40 year old interracial romance. Overall the book is good, and the last half is worthy of four stars, but the first 100 pages or so is a bit slow and reduces the overall rating of the book. "

    " Another fun read. Crais does a great job of weaving together a few themes to make an overall engaging story. And, as usual, my favorite parts of the book are when Joe Pike shows up! "

    " Updated Chandler: first person tale from a lone - well, almost lone in this case - wise-cracking gumshoe who sets out to help one damsel in distress and meets another intelligent enough to be worth falling for. Elvis' style relies on smart asides, not all of which are cynical. The initial problem was easy to solve with the help of some breaking and entering, and the one which arises from it is also sorted part way through, so there are effectively three issues for the price of one here which explains why I spent a lot of the book wondering how the story was going to stretch to fill all the pages which remained. It did so enjoyably enough for me to stay awake far too long reading it, but not quite enough to feel it was worth the suffering I endured the following day. "

    " Do you enjoy a sense of humor when you read? Do you like a book that makes you laugh out loud as you are reading? One that you have a hard time putting down? I find that I enjoy all of Robert Crais' books for this very reason. "
