Elvis Cole is Back--In a Desperate Fight to Clear his Name...

It's fire season, and the hills of Los Angeles are burning. When police and fire department personnel rush door to door in a frenzied evacuation effort, they discover the week-old corpse of an apparent suicide. But the gunshot victim is less gruesome than what they find in his lap: a photo album of seven brutally murdered young women -- one per year, for seven years. And when the suicide victim is identified as a former suspect in one of the murders, the news turns Elvis Cole's world upside down.

Three years earlier Lionel Byrd was brought to trial for the murder of a female prostitute named Yvonne Bennett. A taped confession coerced by the police inspired a prominent defense attorney to take Byrd's case, and Elvis Cole was hired to investigate. It was Cole's eleventh-hour discovery of an exculpatory videotape that allowed Lionel Byrd to walk free. Elvis was hailed as a hero.

But the discovery of the death album in Byrd's lap now brands Elvis as an unwitting accomplice to murder. Captured in photographs that could only have been taken by the murderer, Yvonne Bennett was the fifth of the seven victims -- two more young women were murdered after Lionel Byrd walked free. So Elvis can't help but wonder -- did he, Elvis Cole, cost two more young women their lives?

Shut out of the investigation by a special LAPD task force determined to close the case, Elvis Cole and Joe Pike desperately fight to uncover the truth about Lionel Byrd and his nightmare album of death -- a truth hidden by lies, politics, and corruption in a world where nothing is what it seems to be.

Chasing Darkness is a blistering thriller from the bestselling author who sets the standard for intense, powerful crime writing.

From AudioFile:

The latest Elvis Cole title is an interesting, albeit somewhat convoluted, mystery that confounds and entertains. Some plot twists require leaps of faith, but the story engages because Cole and his compatriot, James Pike, exude personality. At its heart, the plot focuses upon the apparent suicide of Lionel Byrd, whose body is discovered with an album containing pictures of seven murdered women. Cole and Pike quickly realize this is more than suicide. Narrator James Daniels has a workmanlike style that meshes seamlessly with the book's well-honed dialogue. In particular, Daniels succeeds wonderfully in distinguishing between Cole and Pike, whose smooth banter allows the story to flow at just the right pace as it builds to its surprising conclusion.
