The Monkey's Raincoat Publisher's Summary

“Elvis Cole provides more fun for the reader than any L.A. private eye to come along in years.” --Joseph Wambaugh

WINNER OF THE ANTHONY AND MACAVITY AWARDS FOR BEST NOVEL • NOMINATED FOR THE EDGAR AND SHAMUS AWARDS FOR BEST NOVEL

Meet Elvis Cole, L.A. private eye...

He quotes Jiminy Cricket and carries a .38. He's a literate, wisecracking Vietnam vet who is determined never to grow up.

Praise for The Monkey's Raincoat

“Outstanding characters, tight plot, and scintillating prose style.... This fast-paced story speeds Elvis Cole to a chilling, heart-stopping ending.” --Mystery Scene

“Is Bob Crais good? Put it this way: if they're taking you out to put you against the firing squad wall, and you want to enjoy your last moments on earth, pass on the last cigarette and ask for an Elvis Cole novel.” --Harlan Ellison

“Far and away the most satisfying private eye novel in years. Grab this one - it's a winner!” --Lawrence Block

“The best private eye novel of the year...lots of action; bright, crisp dialogue; and sharply drawn characters.” --The Denver Post

“Robert B. Parker has some competition on his hands.... Elvis Cole is an appealing character and Crais's style is fresh and funny.” --Sue Grafton

“In Crais, a new star has appeared on the private eye scene - a dazzling first novel.” --Tony Hillerman
