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

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.

in L.A. — 2 detectives Joe Pike / Elvis Cole — good plot — gruesome murders — twist at the end.

It's fire season, and the hills of Los Angeles are burning. When police and fire department personnel rush door to door in a frenzied evacuation effort, they discover the week-old corpse of an apparent suicide. But the gunshot victim is less gruesome than what they find in his lap: a photo album of seven brutally murdered young women -- one per year, for seven years. And when the suicide victim is identified as a former suspect in one of the murders, the news turns Elvis Cole's world upside down.
