The minefield of Elvis Cole's past is coming back to haunt him - with a vengeance...
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 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.

Crais keeps the suspense and the action boiling byleading the reader step by step toward the shocking solution to the two mysteries at the novel's heart...in what continues to be one of today's best detective series * LOS ANGELES TIMES *
Even at their goriest and most violent, there is a humanity about Robert Crais's Elvis Cole PI novels . . . these LA-noir thrillers feel as if they might have been written by Raymond Chandler if he had been a nice guy * WASHINGTON POST *
Robert Crais is a crime writer of incredible talent - His novels are not only suspenseful and deeply atmospheric . . . they are very hard to put down -- Dan Brown
Robert Crais tells a good tale, skilfully waving together elements of forensic science with old-fashioned sleuthing. The central characters . . . are well-drawn and vivid. The supporting cast is a satisfying mix of the grotesque and the malign. I have come late to the Elvis Cole series but, on the evidence of The Forgotten Man, I will be seeking out its predecessors as well as looking forward to the next episode * TRIBUNE *
Crais' work has always been superior and very well written. This one is no exception * DEADLY PLEASURES *
