really liked it

The first of the Elvis Cole series.
When Cole takes on a job to find missing husband Mort and young son Perry for housewife Ellen Lang, it looks like a simple case of a husband running away with his son. But of course, things are more complicated, eventually leading to a despicable Hollywood agent and a high profile Mexican criminal.

For crime fiction readers, we have seen plenty of these formula books, right up to Nelson DeMille . The protagonist a wisecracking private investigator, who exhibits both heart and toughness. Considering that this was written in the late 80's we can't say it's all been done before, but rather author Crais should be noted as one of the early developers of a modern form of this genre.

A very quick, entertaining read.
