Synopsis

The Forgotten Man by Robert Crais

Six months after nearly losing everything to the men who kidnapped his girlfriend's ten-year-old son, Elvis Cole is slowly coming back to life - when he receives an ominous phone call from the LAPD. An unidentified body has been found in a seedy Los Angeles alley. The only clue the cops have is a packet of newspaper articles about the past exploits of Elvis Cole - and the fact that before the man died, he said he was Elvis's father . . .

Joe Pike is the only person who can help Elvis navigate the minefield of his past. As they investigate, Elvis is haunted by the fact that, at last, he might have found his father. But with each clue they uncover, a troubling picture emerges about the dead man. And as Elvis and Joe approach his true identity, they unwittingly walk straight into a hornet's nest.

Reviews

Crais' writing is a rare thing in the crime genre - a novel that transcends the normal high-octane super-sleuth adventure to deliver an unputdownable story with a deeply human edge. Like the original Elvis, Robert Crais rocks'
