Una llamada de la policía interrumpe el sueño del detective Cole: alertados por un disparo, han encontrado a un hombre herido en un callejón. Poco antes de morir, el desconocido afirma buscar a su hijo: Elvis Cole. Obsesionado desde la infancia por no haber conocido a su padre, Cole decide investigar con la ayuda de su compañero y confidente Joe Pike. Pero con cada nueva pista que desvelan se adentran un poco más en un terreno plagado de espantosos asesinatos que pudo haber cometido el hombre sin identidad. Cole no sabe que su investigación está despertando la atención de otro monstruo: un asesino que está violentamente conectado con el pasado del desconocido. Antes de que el detective consiga encontrarlo, y temeroso de que le dé caza, el psicópata se lanzará al ataque. / With his acclaimed bestsellers, Hostage (a New York Times Notable Book) and Demolition Angel, Robert Crais drew raves for his unstoppable pacing, edgy characterizations, and cinematic prose. Now, in The Last Detective, Crais returns to his signature character, Los Angeles private investigator Elvis Cole, in a masterful page-turner that probes the meaning of family and the burdens of the past. Elvis Cole's relationship with attorney Lucy Chenier is strained. When she moved from Louisiana to join Elvis in Los Angeles, she never dreamed that violence would so easily touch her life -- but then the unthinkable happens. While Lucy is away on business and her ten-year-old son, Ben, is staying with Elvis, Ben disappears without a trace. Desperate to believe that the boy has run away, evidence soon mounts to suggest a much darker scenario. Joining forces with his enigmatic partner, Joe Pike, Elvis frantically searches for Ben with the help of LAPD Detective Carol Starkey, as Lucy's wealthy, oil-industry ex-husband attempts to wrest control of the investigation. Amid the maelstrom of personal conflicts, Elvis and Joe are forced to consider a more troubling lead -- one indicating that Ben's disappearance is connected to a terrible, long-held secret from Elvis Cole's past. Venturing deep inside a complex psyche, Crais explores Elvis's need for family - the military that embraced him during a troubled adolescence, his rock-solid partnership with Pike, and his floundering relationship with Lucy - as they race the clock in their search for Ben. The Last Detective is Robert Crais' richest, most intense tale of suspense yet.
