Publisher's Summary

It's fire season, and the hills of Los Angeles are burning. As the residents of Laurel Canyon are being evacuated from their homes, Police and Fire Department personnel find the corpse of a recluse who apparently committed suicide.Clutched in his lap is a photo album containing photographs of seven young women who have been murdered.LAPD homicide detectives had never connected the seven murders before and only one suspect has been charged in any of the murders - the suicide now discovered in the fire, Elliot Martin. Three years earlier, Martin had been brought to trial, but his defense attorney hired Elvis Cole to investigate. Cole found an exculpatory videotape that prompted the judge to dismiss the charges. But now Cole doesn't know what to believe, so he digs hard to uncover the truth - and escape his terrible guilt.


What the Critics Say

"Little in life is as satisfying as a new Elvis Cole novel. Each installment of Robert Crais' 20-year-old series is like meeting a good friend for lunch who you haven't seen in a long time." (Chicago Tribune)

Elvis & Pike Ride Again

Years ago I sat next to an actual private detective on an airplane and he recommended Robert Crais. I have devoured all of his books and enjoyed every one of them. Chasing Darkness is no exception. James Daniels does a respectable job with the narration and my only complaint is that the book is finished so quickly.

Nice Surprise

I downloaded this one because it was on sale. I had only listened to one other Crais novel and it was not very good (The Watchman - in that one, Pike is the lead character and Cole is the minor character).

In this one, Cole is the lead character and can definitely carry the lead, whereas the Pike character cannot, imho.

All in all, the story was good, characters good, he pulls the story together quite nicely and the narrator is good.

I almost rated it 5-stars, but reserve that for the best of the best.

This one was good - and recommended!
