Description:

1st Printing. Signed. 288 pages. Published in 1997. The author's seventh novel. One of Robert Crais' finest achievements. The First Hardcover Edition. Precedes and should not be confused with all other subsequent editions. Published in a small and limited first print run as a hardcover original only. The First Edition is now scarce. Presents Robert Crais' "Indigo Slam". "Three years ago, a Seattle family ran for their lives in a hail of bullets. Hired by three kids to find their missing father, Elvis now must pick up the cold pieces of a drama that began that night. What he finds is a sordid tale of high crimes and illicit drugs. As clues to a man's secret life emerge from the shadows, Elvis knows he's not just up against ruthless mobsters and some very angry Feds. He's facing a storm of desperation and conspiracy bearing down on three children whose only crime was their survival" (Publisher's blurb). His previous career as the screenwriter for the long-running television series, "Hill Street Blues" and "L. A. Law", has served Robert Crais well in his second career as a serious mystery/thriller writer. Regarded by his admirers as his finest achievement thus far. An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Crais collectors. This copy is very prominently, neatly, and beautifully signed in black pen on the title page by Robert Crais. It is signed directly on the page itself, not on a tipped-in page. This title is now collectible. This is one of few such signed copies of the First Hardcover Edition/First Printing still available online and is in especially fine condition: Clean, crisp, and bright, a pristine beauty. A scarce signed copy thus. One of the finest American novelists of our time. A fine copy. (SEE ALSO OTHER ROBERT CRAIS TITLES IN OUR CATALOG) ISBN 0786862610. Bookseller Inventory # 10209

Synopsis: The seventh novel featuring the wise-cracking Los Angeles private eye pits Cole against counterfeiters and the U.S. marshals as he attempts to track down a major figure in the criminal underworld.

Review: Readers who complain that there's too much wisecracking and cute icon worship in Robert Crais's books about Los Angeles private eye Elvis Cole will be glad to find these traits downplayed (but not totally disappeared) in this story about Cole's search for a missing printer whose specialty is funny money. The book is centered by the presence of the printer's three children--especially the motherly 15-year-old Teri and the obnoxious 12-year-old Charles--who hire Elvis from the phone book. Cole, hoping to become the stepfather of the son of his own lady love, gets sucked in by the children's combination of need and family unity, and soon finds himself in the middle of a shooting war between Russian gangsters, Vietnamese patriots, and ambiguous Federal agents. Previous Elvis outings in paperback: Sunset Express, Free Fall, Lullaby Town, The Monkey's Raincoat, Stalking the Angel, Voodoo River.
