When Ellen Lang’s husband disappears with their son, she hires Elvis Cole to track him down. A quiet and seemingly submissive wife, Ellen can’t even write a check without him. All she wants is to get him and her son back – no questions asked. The seek for Ellen’s errant husband leads Elvis into the seamier side of Hollywood. He soon learns that Mort Lang is a down-on-his-luck talent agent who associates with a schlocky movie producer, and the last place he used to be spotted used to be at a party thrown by a famous and very well-connected ex-Matador. But nobody has seen him since – including his B-movie girlfriend. At the same time the police find Mort in his parked car with four gunshots in his chest – and no kid in sight – Ellen disappears. Now nothing is what it sort of feels, and the heat is on. It is up to Elvis Cole and his partner Joe Pike to find the connection between sleazy Hollywood players and an ex-Matador. “Far and away the most satisfying private eye novel in years. Clutch this one – it is a winner!” – Lawrence Block “Is Bob Crais good? Put it this way: if they are taking you out to put you against the firing squad wall, and you need to enjoy your last moments in the world, pass on the last cigarette and ask for an Elvis Cole novel.” – Harlan Ellison “Robert B. Parker has some competition on his hands….Elvis Cole is an appealing character and Crais’ style is fresh and funny.” – Sue Grafton
