Robert Crais has established Elvis Cole, his wisecracking private eye with a tough exterior but a soft heart, in the consciousness of mystery readers and reviewers everywhere. In Voodoo River, Elvis Cole returns in his most exciting adventure yet.
Hired to uncover the past of Jodi Taylor, an actress in a hit television series, Elvis leaves his native Los Angeles to journey to deepest Louisiana to search for Jodi’s biological parents. Soon he discovers the real reason he’s been sent there — but not before run-ins with an amazing cast of characters, including a crazed, Raid-spraying housewife; a Cajun thug who looks like he’s been built out of spare parts; and a menacing, hundred-year-old river turtle named Luther.
“What a terrific book. Robert Crais . . . should be mentioned in the same breath as Robert B. Parker, Tony Hillerman, Sue Grafton, and James Lee Burke.” –John B. Clutterbuck, Houston Chronicle
“Voodoo River is Robert Crais’s best Elvis Cole adventure to date. It’s Louisiana, Cajun food, non-stop action, crisp dialogue, attitude . . .” –Elizabeth George, author of Playing for the Ashes
“Voodoo River moves Elvis Cole to the place of honor on my bookshelf. Crais is a terrific writer and this is proof.” –Sue Grafton, author of K is for Killer
