Publisher's Summary

It seemed like a simple case - before the bodies starting piling up. Investigator Elvis Cole and his partner, Joe Pike, take on the deadliest case of their lives, in the new masterpiece of suspense from the number-one New York Times best-selling author
When single mother Devon Connor hires private investigator Elvis Cole, it's because her troubled teenage son Tyson is flashing cash and she's afraid he's dealing drugs. But the truth is devastatingly different. With two other partners in crime, he's been responsible for a string of high-end burglaries, a crime spree that takes a deadly turn when one of them is murdered and Tyson and his girlfriend disappear.
They stole the wrong thing from the wrong man. Determined to get it back, he has hired a team that is smart and brutal, and to even the odds, Cole calls in his friends Joe Pike and Jon Stone. But even they may be overmatched. The hired killers are leaving a trail of bodies in their wake. A few more won't make any difference.

Another cracking story from Robert Crais

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes without hesitation. Although I also read all of Robert Crais' novels in print format, I find the audiobooks make them even better. There's so much humour & banter from Elvis & Joe that to hear it "performed" is always a pleasure.

Who was your favorite character and why?

There is no possible way I could ever choose between Elvis & Joe (that would be like choosing your favourite child!!). I will say that the new characters of Harvey & Stemms were a great addition, like a "dark side" version of Elvis & Joe.

Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels – was your favourite?

He really brought Harvey & Stemms to life, giving them both distinctive voices and mannerisms and the conversations between the two were a definite highlight of the book. I'd like to add that I was VERY wary of listening to Luke Daniels as I have listened to the amazing William Roberts reading Robert Crais for many years and he *is* Elvis & Joe to me. Although not *quite* as good he certainly wasn't far off and I would be more than happy to listen to him narrate future books in the series.

Shame about the narrator

A fairly typical Elvis Cole story - entertaining without requiring too much effort on the part of the reader/listener. Spoiled by the narrator, who seems to be under the impression that he's auditioning for all of the voices in the Scooby-Doo series.
