Life in the California sun suits Elvis Cole — until the day a fifteen-year-old girl and her two younger siblings walk into his office. Then everything changes. 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 . . .”

  • "The ensuing action is suspenseful...spending a few fast-paced hours with Indigo won't give you the blues."
    People Magazine
  • "[Elvis] Cole works his easy charm to the max. 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."
    Kirkus Reviews
  • "Crais provides sympathetic and believable kids, a flawed father figure and a bunch of heavies with a softer side-all of whom rocket along until they interlock smoothly at the big finish."
    Publishers Weekly
  • "Suffused with wry humor, lots of action, and some devilishly clever plot twists, Indigo Slam is the most satisfying detective novel I've read in a while."
    Miami Herald
  • "[A] witty and hilarious caper."
    St. Louis Post-Dispatch
  • "Indigo Slam hits high gear...Those new to the Elvis Cole series will be converts. Existing fans will welcome Indigo Slam."
  • "[Elvis] Cole is one of those characters who has a smart line for almost every situation, but Crais takes care to let his humanity show through."
    San Francisco Chronicle
