Loyalty, commitment, and the fight for justice have always driven Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. If they make a promise, they keep it. Even if it could get them killed. When Elvis Cole is secretly hired to find a grief-stricken mother, his first stop is an ordinary house on a rainy night in Echo Park. Only the house is not ordinary, and neither are the people hiding inside: a wanted fugitive on the run from police, and a vicious career criminal with dangerous secrets of his own.
As helicopters swirl overhead, LAPD Officer Scott James and his German shepherd, Maggie, have tracked the fugitive to this same Echo Park house, coming face-to-face with Mr. Rollins, a man who leaves behind a savagely murdered body, enough explosives to destroy the neighborhood, and a connection to the missing woman. Scott is now the only person who can identify him, but Mr. Rollins has a rule: Never leave a witness alive.
For all of them, the night is only beginning.
Sworn to secrecy by his client, Elvis finds himself targeted by the police even as Scott and Maggie become targets for Mr. Rollins. As the two cases intertwine, Elvis and Joe join forces with Scott and Maggie to battle corrupt officials, shadowy arms dealers, and inner-city gangs with ties to terrorist cells, and follow a trail of lies where no one is who he claims-and the very woman they promised to save might get them all killed.
"Robert Crais is one of those rare, treasured writers who combine genuine humanity with tales of crime and detection," writes The Philadelphia Inquirer, and this may be his most remarkable audiobook of all.
