Publisher's Summary

It is fire season, and the hills of Los Angeles are burning. Threatened by a raging brush fire, the residents of Laurel Canyon are being forced from their homes.Police and fire department personnel rush from door to door to evacuate the inhabitants, but find something in one of the houses none of them expected: The days-old corpse of a middle-aged recluse who apparently committed suicide. Then comes an even more horrible discovery. Clutched in his lap is a photo album containing photographs of seven young women who have been murdered. Each photograph was taken only moments after the women were killed, and could only have been taken by the killer. There was one murder per year for seven years, with their bodies found in different parts of the city. LAPD homicide detectives had never connected the seven murders. But now, with the discovery of the "death album", these seven murders have been linked, and the news for Elvis Cole is bad.Only one suspect had been charged in any of those cases, that being for the murder of victim #4.LAPD and the L.A. County District Attorney's office had a marginal case, but they also had a recorded confession by the suspect and believed him to be the murderer. But, with evidence supplied by Elvis Cole, in the end he walked free. That suspect was the suicide now discovered in the fire, Elliot Martin. Did Cole's action three years ago free a killer to commit more murders? Did Elvis cost three young women their lives?

A bit disappointed

What disappointed you about Chasing Darkness?

It didn't give me as much enjoyment as his other books in this Cole/Pike series, and I didn't really know why. Seems I had inadvertently chosen an abridged version.

If you’ve listened to books by Robert Crais before, how does this one compare?

Not as interesting or absorbing, probably because it has been abridged

What does James Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Pleasant voice, easy to listen to.<br/>Helped with understanding the pronunciation of place names

What character would you cut from Chasing Darkness?

None.

Any additional comments?

I am sorry I chose abridged, feel this is why I felt let down. Will not let this deter me from listening to more books by this author

Great detective good story great writter.

Would you listen to Chasing Darkness again? Why?

I tend not to listen to a story twice but I have purchased two more of these stories.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Has to be Elvis Cole hands down, however Pike runs a close second.

What does James Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Hus voce changes make you really understand the feeling of the writter.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Not really it was suspense from start to End and it was way into the book before I worked out who did it.
