    Bookmarque: If you liked the more noir-ish voice Crais comes back to here, give Chandler a go - TLS is his best IMO.

It's fire season in L.A., and the authorities are going door-to-door to ensure homeowners have evacuated the area. But at one home they discover an apparent suicide. The victim is holding a scrapbook of photos of murdered women that only the killer could have had access to, however, P.I. Elvis Cole had definitively proved this man innocent of the crimes at a trial several years earlier. And the murders continued.

It was fascinating as the police walked Cole (and the reader) through the process to learn the evidence clearly implicated the suicide victim as the killer, yet Cole had absolute evidence to the contrary. So who's right? Now Cole, and his partner Joe Pike, have been shut-out of any further info from the authorities regarding the murder cases and must strike out on their own to solve this case. Both sides seem to be absolutely correct about the evidence - an excellent conundrum.

This is the 12th Elvis Cole/Joe Pike mystery. The author provides enough back-story to enable to reader to understand the characters and their relationships without having read the previous stories. The answer to this puzzle caught this reader by surprise and there were terrific red herrings along the way.

Years ago, private eye Elvis Cole uncovered key evidence that helped acquit an accused murderer. Flash forward to the present after the accused man is found dead, apparently a suicide. With him is a photo album of gruesome photographs of seven murdered women, including the victim in the crime in which Cole helped clear him.

The Short Version:
One thing I will say for this novel, just when I would think I had figured things out, another twist came and surprised me, keeping me off-balance. I enjoyed the cleverness of the plot, though I will admit that I didn't really care much about wise-cracking Elvis Cole or taciturn Joe Pike, nor Elvis' relationship with Carol Sharkey (though perhaps I would have felt differently if I had read more in the series - though you don't need to in order to enjoy this one). Chasing Darkness is fun, and it reads a bit like a few episodes of an LA set detective show - not necessarily a bad thing if that's what you're in the mood for, but also not particularly memorable.
