Publisher's Summary

When quiet Ellen Lang enters Elvis Cole's Disney-deco office, she's lost something very valuable - her husband and young son. The case seems simple enough, but Elvis isn't thrilled. Neither is his enigmatic partner and firepower Joe Pike.

Their search down the seamy side of Hollywood's studio lots and sculptured lawns soon leads them deep into a nasty netherworld of drugs and sex - and murder. Now the case is getting interesting, but it's also turned ugly. Because everybody, from cops to starlets to crooks, has declared war on Ellen and Elvis.

good story but a little dated.

I am new to the author Robert Crais, although he has been writing for years. after reading a recent book I decided to go back to the first in the series. This is a good story but a little dated, hence 4 stars.

Good book.

Not quite the same feel as some of crais books. Still a good listen though, interesting story. Not hugely keen on the narrator.

Stay with it, slow start leads to much more

Keep going, that's the way forward. Great story, the first of many. Ignore the negative reviews, they obviously have no patience!

Gave up before the end of chapter one

I bought this because I'd enjoyed Crais' "Suspect". This book is much earlier. I found the writing slow and clichéd and the narration uninspired.. I tried hard to make it to the end of the first chapter but my interest and patience were snuffed out long before then

Not to the usual standard....<br /><br />

Weaker story line than other Cole/Pike novels & not enough Pike. And this narrator is extremely poor & detracts from the quality. I won't be another book that uses this narrator
