The Last Detective
Elvis Cole has got a problem to solve - and this time it's personal. Elvis Cole's girlfriend, Lucy, is out of town, and she has left her young son Ben in Elvis's care. Elvis and Lucy have had a few problems lately - not least over his job as a private investigator. But at last things seem to be getting better. Then Ben disappears. One minute he's playing his computer game in Elvis's house; the next he has vanished. Elvis looks everywhere, but he just can't find Ben; and neither can Lucy when she arrives. Then Elvis receives a phone call about Ben - and realises that something from his own past has come back to haunt him...

REVIEWS 'The tale is told with urgency'DAILY TELEGRAPH 'Robert Crais is one of the best-kept secrets of the crime genre, despite the raft of awards bestowed on him. His Elvis Cole detective novels have always been intelligent and satisfying reads, but it was with LA Requiem that Crais finally began to receive the public recognition he deserved. On the back of this success, Orion has forked out on a massive advertising campaign for his latest book, and with any luck it will bring him to the attention of a whole new audience. It should do too, because The Last Detective is up there with the author's best work....This is a nervy, compelling page-turner of a book with great action scenes'Mark Campbell CRIME TIME
