Publisher's Summary

It's fire season, and the hills of Los Angeles are burning. As the residents of Laurel Canyon are being evacuated from their homes, Police and Fire Department personnel find the corpse of a recluse who apparently committed suicide.

Clutched in his lap is a photo album containing photographs of seven young women who have been murdered.

LAPD homicide detectives had never connected the seven murders before and only one suspect has been charged in any of the murders - the suicide now discovered in the fire, Elliot Martin. Three years earlier, Martin had been brought to trial, but his defense attorney hired Elvis Cole to investigate. Cole found an exculpatory videotape that prompted the judge to dismiss the charges. But now Cole doesn't know what to believe, so he digs hard to uncover the truth - and escape his terrible guilt.

Investigate another case with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

Critic Reviews

"Little in life is as satisfying as a new Elvis Cole novel. Each installment of Robert Crais' 20-year-old series is like meeting a good friend for lunch who you haven't seen in a long time." (Chicago Tribune)
