The case seems simple ...Show synopsisWhen quiet Ellen Lang enters Elvis Cole's Disney-deco office, she's lost something very valuable - her husband and young son. The case seems simple enough, but Elvis isn't thrilled. Neither is his enigmatic partner and firepower Joe Pike. Their search down the seamy side of Hollywood's studio lots and sculptured lawns soon leads them deep into a nasty netherworld of drugs and sex - and murder.

Inscribed and signed by the author, Robert Crais, to fellow writer Wayne Warga. Inscribed: "8 August 87, To Wayne. Hope you enjoy! All good wishes, Bob Crais." A little cocked, a very good copy. Robert Crais dedicated two of his books to Warga.

Warga wrote to important profiles of Hellman. Later, Warga became a mystery novelist, creating three well-received bibliomysteries: Hardcover, Fatal Impressions, and Singapore Transfer, featuring Los Angeles rare book dealer, Jeffrey Dean.
