Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Elvis Cole's relationship with attorney Lucy Chenier is strained. When she moved from Louisiana to join Elvis in Los Angeles, she never dreamed that violence would so easily touch her life — but then the unthinkable happens. While Lucy is away on business and her ten-year-old son, Ben, is staying with Elvis, Ben disappears without a trace. Desperate to believe that the boy has run away, evidence soon mounts to suggest a much darker scenario.Joining forces with his enigmatic partner, Joe Pike, Elvis frantically searches for Ben with the help of LAPD Detective Carol Starkey, as Lucy's wealthy, oil-industry ex-husband attempts to wrest control of the investigation. Amid the maelstrom of personal conflicts, Elvis and Joe are forced to consider a more troubling lead — one indicating that Ben's disappearance is connected to a terrible, long-held secret from Elvis Cole's past.Venturing deep inside a complex psyche, Crais explores Elvis' need for family - the military that embraced him during a troubled adolescence, his rock-solid partnership with Pike, and his floundering relationship with Lucy - as they race the clock in their search for Ben. The Last Detective is Robert Crais' richest, most intense tale of suspense yet.

Synopsis:

In his ninth story featuring L.A. detective Elvis Cole, Crais probes within Cole's wisecracking, cocky exterior to reveal a troubled soul. When the son of his longtime girlfriend, Lucy Chenier, goes missing, Cole's demons--from the secrets of his childhood to the long-surpressed images of his service in Vietnam--threaten to destroy the world he's built. Unabridged. 9 CDs.

Synopsis:

In his breakout neo-noir LA Requiem, Robert Crais explored the tortured inner life of Elvis Cole's partner Joe Pike to stunning effect. Now, in The Last Detective, Crais turns the spotlight on Cole, his signature character. Beneath Cole's wisecracking, cocky exterior has lain a troubled soul, and when the son of his longtime girlfriend, Lucy Chenier, goes missing, Cole's demons - from the secrets of his childhood to the long-surpressed images of his service in Vietnam - threaten to destroy the world he's built.
