        Starred review from May 29, 1995
        ``Efficiency and focus are the keys to success,'' says L.A. PI Elvis Cole in the fifth (after Free Fall) and best to date of this outstanding series. Although Cole's comment is a little facetious, it's an accurate commentary on his approach here. Popular 36-year-old TV star and adoptee Jodi Taylor hires Cole to identify her birth parents and uncover her medical background. His investigation takes him to Ville Platte, La., where he encounters a lovely attorney, an ancient snapping turtle and Jimmy Ray Rebenack, auto mechanic and part-time investigator who has already uncovered some facts about Jodi that he may turn to his own advantage. Cole's attention to Rebenack worries Milt Rossier, a local crime lord involved in assorted illegal activities, but Cole cares only about his own investigation--until one of Rossier's thugs murders an old man for protecting a small child. Finally, Cole calls on Joe Pike, his silent and deadly partner, to help put a stop to Rossier's exploitive pursuits and expose the old crime that threatens Jodi Taylor's career. Cole has never been wittier, more passionate or more violently committed to his clients. Crais makes not a single misstep here. Author tour.

        March 1, 1995
        On a trip to Louisiana in order to locate the biological parents of a popular television actress, private eye Elvis Cole runs into more than he bargained for, including a cast of memorable characters. From the author of Lullaby Town (Bantam, 1992).

        April 1, 1995
        Los Angeles private eye Elvis Cole is hired by television star Jodi Taylor to find Taylor's birth parents. Soon after Cole arrives in Louisiana's bayou country to begin his inquiries, a local investigator is killed. With the help of his loose-cannon partner Joe Pike, Cole discovers that Jodi's natural father was a young black man who was killed by Jodi's maternal grandfather. The crime was buried for 30 years until the murdered investigator uncovered it and tried to blackmail Jodi about it. He was killed because his freelance activities threatened a lucrative illegal-alien smuggling operation. Cole and Pike decide to take down these purveyors of human misery . . . just because. Cole, in his fifth appearance, is in fine form. He's as tough, witty, and clever as ever, and his partner Pike exudes danger like no one in suspense fiction this side of Spenser's Hawk. The series has been nominated for Edgars and has won Anthonys. This installment is every bit as good as its predecessors.
