Chasing Darkness - Book Review

Chasing Darkness is the latest novel by Robert Crais in his Elvis Cole series and the last of his stuff in my stack. I'll be on the search for more because this was another great entry in his Southern California noir style. It flirted with the danger of veering off into yet another corrupt-police-are-the-bad-guys kind of scenario but a deft twist took it down an unexpected path with the inevitable show down with the bad guy. A draw back of the genre: the journey is more fun than the destination but things gotta wrap up somehow, don't they? Crais is fast becoming a favorite.
