Publisher's Summary

Elvis Cole is just a detective who can't say no, especially to a girl in a terrible fix. And Jennifer Sheridan qualifies: Her fiance, Mark Thurman, is a decorated L.A. cop with an elite plainclothes unit, but Jennifer's sure he's in trouble - the kind of serious trouble that only Elvis Cole can help him out of.Five minutes after his new client leaves his office, Elvis and his partner, the enigmatic Joe Pike, are hip-deep in a deadly situation as they plummet into a world of South Central gangs, corrupt cops, and conspiracies of silence. And before the case is through, every cop in the LAPD will be gunning for a pair of escaped armed-and-dangerous killers: Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

CPC all you'll ever need (Crais, Pike, Cole)

Would you listen to Free Fall again? Why?

Yes, there is always a detail missed that you find later.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Poitros and Grimes, they never allow their personal feelings towards Pike to keep them from helping to see justice is done.

What about Mel Foster’s performance did you like?

Voice and inflection gives realism to varied characters of gender and ethnicity.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Elvis Cole, reserve chute for those of poor judgement.

Any additional comments?

As much as I would like to see any of the Pike and Cole series go to film, I feel the style, story, and characters would not be done justice much like the works of Stephen King.
