The New ELVIS COLE and JOE PIKE Thriller

About The Book

'Just keeps getting better and better' DAVID BALDACCI 

A lightning fast and thoroughly entertaining new crime novel featuring Elvis Cole and Joe Pike from the beloved, bestselling, and award-winning master of the genre.
Odd couple private eyes Elvis Cole and Joe Pike uncover a stash of deadly secrets when Elvis takes on the case of Josh Shoe, a controversial podcaster who has vanished. What seems at first like the simple case of a missing man becomes a labyrinth of lies that leads Elvis and Joe into harm's way . . . and then into the dark heart of Los Angeles. 
At the same time, Elvis is visited by the love of his life, Lucy, and her son Ben, and he is reminded at exactly the wrong moment how much he has to lose. 
Adult film stars, top-secret government agencies, crooked L.A. politicians, and some ungodly southern California heat--Elvis and Joe will encounter all of these and more as they sift through clues and try to stay alive.
