A New York Times bestseller

It seemed like a simple case—before the bodies starting piling up. Investigator Elvis Cole and his partner, Joe Pike, take on the deadliest case of their lives, in the new masterpiece of suspense from the #1 New York Times bestselling author

When single mother Devon Connor hires private investigator Elvis Cole, it’s because her troubled teenage son Tyson is flashing cash and she’s afraid he’s dealing drugs. But the truth is devastatingly different. With two other partners in crime, he has been responsible for a string of high-end burglaries, a crime spree that takes a deadly turn when one of them is murdered and Tyson and his girlfriend disappear.

They stole the wrong thing from the wrong man. Determined to get it back, he has hired a team that is smart and brutal, and to even the odds, Cole calls in his friends Joe Pike and Jon Stone. But even they may be overmatched. The hired killers are leaving a trail of bodies in their wake. A few more won’t make any difference.

Review Quotes

“Luke Daniels returns to give voice to the ‘World’s Greatest Detective,’ Elvis Cole, and his hard-nosed partner, Joe Pike. While Daniels downplays Crais’ humor more than some of the series’ previous narrators, including Crais himself, he expertly presents the gravity of the teenager’s circumstances and maintains a suspenseful pace that will keep listeners riveted.”


“Crais…always delivers riveting crime fiction while somehow offering something unique in every novel. Here it’s the surprisingly interesting, Tarantino-like conversations between Harvey and Stemms as they plan their next deadly steps. More fantastic reading from a perennial A-lister who belongs on every crime fan’s TBR list.”

Booklist (starred review)

“Adroitly spins a treatise on relations between mothers and sons, fathers and sons, and bonds of friendship, nestled within a hair-raising chase between cold-blooded murderers and naïve adolescents. Crais’ trademark humor and thoroughly accurate, genuine depictions of human interactions make this one of his best yet…[with] a tremendously rewarding climax and touching epilogue.”

Library Journal (starred review)

“Among West Coast mystery writers, none is more reliable than Crais, who is in excellent form here.”

Kirkus Reviews

“The empathic Elvis takes center stage, with just enough hard-boiled Pike to season the mayhem…Expertly crafted.”
