Peter Alan Nelsen is a super-successful movie director who is used to getting what he wants. And what he wants now is to find the wife and infant child he dumped on the road to fame.
It's the kind of case that Cole could handle in his sleep, except that when Cole actually finds Nelsen's ex-wife, everything takes on nightmarish proportions - a nightmare that involves Cole with a nasty New York mob family and a psycho killer who is the son of the godfather.
And when the unpredictable Nelsen charges in, an explosive situation blows sky-high.

I read all the Elvis Cole novels in print and lived them. So far i have listened to two of the audio titles and something isn't clicking for me. I think having read the books I'd created a voice for both Cole and Pike in my own head and so haven't quite got used to the performance. I'll persevere though,.
The story's good, but I found the narrator pretty uninspiring. His overly slow drawl meant I had to check I hadn't activated half-speed delivery. So it's difficult to recommend when compared to the others in the series narrated by Roberts.
who dun it?
The narrative was annoying when they kept introducing different sounds e.g. For phone conversations. The story itself was entertaining, it kept your attention and you wanted to know what happened next but I didn't believe it would happen from an initial task of 'I want to find my ex wife'.
"Elvis Cole #3 good crime novel"
Good crime novel with some funny comments. Just how I like them.
Good narrator. Easy to follow the story and dialogue even while working.
