Narrator: William Roberts
It has been six months since Elvis Cole solved the kidnapping of his girlfriend's son, and six months since the boy and his mother left Los Angeles and the dangers Cole's life brings. Cole is slowly getting his life back together when he's called out to a crime scene by the LAPD.
Cole has never seen the murdered man before, but the man had lots of news clippings about Cole on him and claimed to be looking for his son, Elvis Cole, just before he died.
Cole has spend his life wondering about who his father might have been and can't help needing to find out if the dying man's claims were true. But, as he investigates, Cole discovers that nothing about the man is what it appeared to be at first. Even the murder itself holds a few surprises.
By the time Cole figures the whole sorry saga out it may well be too late to safe himself.
As always, this was an action packed story, with Cole's background story providing just the right amount of human interest in the middle of all the action.
William Roberts, the narrator is good and makes Cole sound the way I imagined he would.
The only thing in this book I wasn't crazy about were the sections told by Frederick; they made the mystery less mysterious in my opinion. Other than that, I enjoyed the thrilling ride this (audio) book provided.
