Marilyn StasioWhile Crais's macho California P.I., Elvis Cole, and his silent sidekick, the menacing Joe Pike, have their own action-hero moves down cold…they never coast on procedural protocol. Nor is Crais too tough to neglect a sissy thing like plot. This one's a winner, opening with the artfully staged suicide of a presumed serial killer…and developing into a suspenseful, often surprising morality tale motivated by Cole's determination to prove he didn't slip up in helping to exonerate the dead man of a murder charge.
