“Elvis Cole provides more fun for the reader than any L.A. private eye to come along in years.”—Joseph Wambaugh

WINNER OF THE ANTHONY AND MACAVITY AWARDS FOR BEST NOVEL • NOMINATED FOR THE EDGAR AND SHAMUS AWARDS FOR BEST NOVEL

Meet Elvis Cole, L.A. Private Eye. . . . He quotes Jiminy Cricket and carries a .38. He’s a literate, wisecracking Vietnam vet who is determined to never grow up.

When quiet Ellen Lang enters Elvis Cole’s Disney-Deco office, she’s lost something very valuable—her husband and her young son. The case seems simple enough, but Elvis isn’t thrilled. Neither is his enigmatic partner and firepower, Joe Pike. Their search down the seamy side of Hollywood’s studio lots and sculptured lawns soon leads them deep into a nasty netherworld of drugs, sex—and murder. Now the case is getting interesting, but it’s also turned ugly. Because everybody, from cops to starlets to crooks, has declared war on Ellen and Elvis. For Ellen, it isn’t Funtown anymore. For Elvis, it’s just a living . . . He hopes.

The Monkey's Raincoat is an Elvis Cole Novel, #1 out of 18 books at total. It was published in 1987 even before I was born. So it has been an interesting trip for me through the end of '80s.

To begin wiht it's a detective novel. A thrilling one. A woman, Ellen Lang who lost her husband and her son. A detective, Elvis Cole and his sociopath partner Joe Pike. Murder and kidnapping. Beneath the iceberg lurks drug deals, Hollywood relations. There are good cops, bad cops, good guys, bad guys, strong friendships, one night stands, cheatings and so on. If you are into thrilling adventures, then you'll enjoy The Monkey's Raincoat.
