In a shower of gunfire three years ago, a Seattle family ran for their life. Elvis has been hired by three children to find their father, and he now has to pick up the pieces of a drama that began that night. What he discovers is a heinous story of high crimes and illegal substances. As hints of a man’s secret existence emerge from the shadows, Elvis realizes he’s up against more than just brutal mobsters and enraged Feds. He’s up against a desperation and conspiracy storm that’s coming down on three kids whose only crime was to survive.
Indigo Slam by Robert Crais
Vietnamese revolutionaries, Russian assassins, and federal operatives are all involved in a dramatic confrontation towards the climax of this spectacular voyage. Elvis Cole, the wisecracking L.A. shamus, is, predictably, smack in the center of it all. At first, Elvis is approached by three resourceful young children who want to find their father who has gone missing. Clark Hewitt, that father, is eventually shown to be a mystery guy, a master printer, and maybe an addict who escaped the witness protection programme he was placed in after informing on a counterfeiting scheme conducted by Russian and Ukrainian mobsters. Elvis is sceptical of Clark’s children, who plainly adore him. The feds want Clark returned to them, but the Russians seek retaliation for his howling.
The ultimate twist involves a Vietnamese family who wants Clark to run off with a stack of counterfeit dong in order to wreck havoc on their country’s economy. Elvis wants Lucy, his lady love, to go to Los Angeles, but her controlling ex-husband has other plans. Underneath the customary smooth patter comes a narrative that builds to a satisfying climax. Joe Pike, co-owner of their detective service with Elvis, assists Elvis in devising a crazy gambit that may please everyone, with the probable exception of the trigger-happy Russians.

Never forgetting that a novel can’t be carried by its own cuteness, Crais (Lullaby Town; Sunset Express) provides sympathetic and believable children, a flawed father figure, and a group of Vietnamese heavies with a softer side—all of whom rocket along until they all interlock smoothly at the big finish.
The Ceiling Man by Patricia Lillie is veru amuzing novel.
Clark Hewitt is on the run again, this time without his family, three years after the witness relocation programme whisked him and his family out of Seattle seconds away from armed men. So his eldest daughter Teri, who is 15 going on 40, walks into Elvis Cole’s office with her two brothers, flashing a stack of money in his face as a retainer for finding her father. In some ways, the case is self-evident. Cole (Sunset Express, 1996, etc.) doesn’t take long to figure out that Clark has returned to Seattle, and by the time he reports to the kids, their father has already arrived. However, what Cole has discovered during his investigation indicates that he is in deep trouble:
Lucy Chenier, a Baton Rouge attorney, is looking for a job that would keep her as close to Cole’s body as she is to his heart, but her powerful ex-husband intervenes just in time to put a stop to the arrangement. Cole will have to hold off him, the authorities, and the Russians long enough to glide into a Disneyland conclusion that screams movie movie movie. Sure, Cole makes the most of his easygoing demeanor. But since he’s riding Crais’s twistiest and best sustained plot with all the panache of John Travolta, it’s a pleasure to see him enjoying his work more than any other p.i. in California history.
Nightingale House Steve Frech is quite amazing novel.
In his 21st book, Los Angeles ace Crais (The Promise, 2015, etc.) extends his streak of sharp, enjoyable thrillers.
But, as already stated, they are minor quibbles. Indigo Slam is a tense, emotionally gratifying thriller that introduces us to one of crime fiction’s most intriguing pairings.
It is hoped Scott James and Maggie will work together again soon.
