I've yet to be disappointed in a Elvis Cole/Joe Pike story and Racing the Light is no exception . Adele Schumacher hires Cole to find her son Josh, who along with his best friend run a podcast called In Your Face with Josh Shoe. A porn star comes to Josh with information that it become public would harm the image and career of a city councilman and a few of his cronies. Cole turns to Joe Pike for assistance. Cole & Pike are in a race to find Josh before it's to late. Another good addition to this series.… (mere)

Good but not. great. Elvis and JOE CONTENT W

Good but not great. Elvis and Joe content with multiple issues, none of which really concerned me. There are better Cole plots.

Quite nice. Hadn't read Robert Crais in a few years. Elvis Cole still has too many friends that remind me of watching Superfriends cartoons as a kid, but the interleaved chapters from the dog's point of view were refreshing. I can't think of a good mystery like that since William Marshall's "Frogmouth."
