"A thoughtful and powerful page turner."--People

Elvis Cole is just a detective who can't say no, especially to a girl in a terrible fix. And Jennifer Sheridan qualifies: Her fiancÚ, Mark Thurman, is a decorated LA cop with an elite plainclothes unit, but Jennifer's sure he's in trouble--the kind of serious trouble that only Elvis Cole can help him out of.

Five minutes after his new client leaves his office, Elvis and his partner, the enigmatic Joe Pike, are hip-deep in a deadly situation as they plummet into a world of South Central gangs, corrupt cops, and conspiracies of silence. And before the case is through, every copy in the LAPD will be gunning for a pair of escaped armed-and-dangerous killers--Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

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

"Elvis lives, and he's on his way to being crowned the king of detectives."--Booklist

A very sweet young woman hires Cole to investigate the trouble she believes her fiance (a plain clothes cop) is in. It's all pretty straight forward, but then it's not and everything gets very complicated. This was a very well-written, extremely exciting story. Read full review
