Gifted actor, playwright, and voice artist David Stuart gives authentic reading to the further adventures of Elvis Cole, the shrewd L. A. private investigator created by Robert Crais. Once again Elvis is accompanied by his taciturn buddy Joe Pike in this chase for a missing Japanese manuscript. This is a case Elvis can't refuse as he's given a blank check for his trouble and there is, of course, a gorgeous woman involved. Problems mount when the daughter of the man who hired him is kidnaped by a Japanese mob, the notorious, take-no-prisoners 'Yakuza' (think mafia). Despite setbacks Elvis persists in his battle against hedonism, amorality, and unimaginable evil. Another thriller by Crais!

READER

Voice of the reader did not fit the character. Using a single reader to perform all of the characters is silly and ruins the presentation. The readers are performing a script; it is like an old radio program.

    This is my second Elvis Cole book (I like to read a series in or

    This is my second Elvis Cole book (I like to read a series in order) and I'm enjoying this series. It has the things I enjoy in a mystery series - some humor, an imperfect "hero" (or two) and a good mystery. When Robert B. Parker passed away, I read that Robert Crais credited him as his inspiration, and it shows. Crais isn't quite as pithy as Parker is in his Spenser series, but the humor is definitely there, as is the importance of good partnership.

    I also enjoy those series like this (Stalking the Angel was written in 1988) that predate cell phones, the internet, and all those little things we have these days that make things so much easier for a PI like Elvis - at least in theory. I'll definitely be reading more of the exploits of Elvis and his partner, Joe Pike.

    Elvis and Jack Reacher must reads for action

    P.I. Elvis Cole looks for a Japanese book, the Hagakure, and the owners daughter. He shows no fear as he destroys the Japanese mob.

    ...always fun to see what Elvis Cole is up to, but if you've read one of these then you know the formula. Just good, mindless, reading entertainment!
