    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.

Viet Nam flashbacks for Elvis Cole

by robroy on Mar 30, 2010

This book is really a nail-biter; as any that puts innocent kids in the power of cruelty tends to be. When Ben Chenier is kidnapped while in Elvis's care, it appears that the kidnapping is in a sort of retalliation for something that much-decorated veteran Cole did in the war. Not so, but it takes a lot of effort to sort through what really is behind it. In the end, Ben is recovered, but Elvis gets dumped by Lucy, who still blames him for what happened with the boy. If anything, it is more her fault than anyone else's, and the unfairness of her actions really is annoying. Dump Lucy, and give Elvis a love interest who really appreciates him, ( whether it be Carole Starkey or someone else) please, Mr. Crais.

Robert Crais

by Manuahs on Sep 24, 2008

The last detective is, I think, Robert Crais' best book yet. The plot is very well written, the characters are very believable, and it gives more history into Joe and Elvis' pasts. I would highly reccomend this book.

Elvis Cole is Back !!

Robert Crais' new book 'The Last Detective' is a masterful page-turner which probes the meaning of family and burdens of the past. Great characters.
