PI Elvis Cole returns in this novel. He is hired to find a woman who embezzled from her job and disappeared but there is more going on then meets the eye.
During the course of his investigation Cole encounters his old friend Jon Stone. It is nice to see Jon again, maybe he will get his own novel someday. Stone is or was a government operative.
Also turning up in this novel is cop Scott James and his police dog Maggie. They were the stars of Crais’ previous novel, maybe I should pick it up.
I liked this novel. Cole remains a likable hero. I enjoy his first person point of view, I think there might have been only one bad Elvis Cole novel and that was at least nine years ago.
