P.I. Elvis Cole's relationship with attorney Lucy Chenier is strained. Then the unthinkable happens. While Lucy is away on business and her ten-year-old son Ben is staying with Elvis, the boy vanishes without a trace. When the kidnappers call, it's not for ransom, but for a promise to punish Cole for past sins he claims he didn't commit. With the LAPD wrestling over the case, and the boy's estranged father attempting to take control of the investigation, Cole vows to find Ben first. But Cole's partner, Joe Pike, knows more about this case than he has said. Pike lives in a world where dangerous men commit crimes beyond all reckoning. Now, one of those men is alive and well in L.A.--and calling Elvis Cole to war. . . .

I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read ... not one to read before bed if one wants to actually sleep, though!! The only parts for which I didn't particularly care were those chapters devoted to Ben's (the little kidnapped boy) perspective of his situation. I get why they're included but for me they're unnecessary in order to move the plot forward.

A great story with a breathless, frantic conclusion.

I was introduced to Robert Crais by reading a couple of his more recent novels. I went back and started the Elvis Cole and Joe Pike series. I found this novel to be very informative as the characters of Cole and Pike. I enjoyed the book very much.

Enough background to make this a standalone novel. Too much for one in this series, but I really enjoyed this one. As I have this whole series. Well worth the read.

I really enjoyed this book, almost to the point I couldn't put it down. The end was a bit anticlimatic but the rest of the book was pretty good
