Grand Central Pub
L.A. private eye Elvis Cole is hired by popular television star Jodie Taylor to delve into her past and identify the biological parents who gave her up for adoption thirty-six years before. Cole's assignment is to find out their biological history and report back.

It seems all too clear cut. But when he gets to Louisiana and begins his search, he finds that there's something much darker going on. Other people are also looking for Taylor's parents, and some are ending up dead.

And when Cole realizes that his employer knew more than she was telling, Voodoo River becomes a twisting tale of identity, secrets, and murder.

Baker & Taylor
The wise-cracking private eye with a tough exterior and a soft heart returns in a mystery involving a crazed housewife, Cajun thug, and menacing, hundred-year-old river turtle named Luther that captures the heart of the bayou country. Tour.

Ah what fools these mortals be to believe that anyone in Hollywood would care about anyone but themselves! Cole and Pike take on a pack of rednecks in the bayou country and the Big Easy which it isn't. Bunch of nasty folks out there and surprise-there may be a teeny bit of prejudice lurking amongst the natives and them Hollywood grubbers as well.

I give an A+ to Elvis Cole and Joe Pike as characters. Love the irreverence of Elvis and the deadly potential of Pike. I'd rate the story a C+. I felt it was too complicated for my short-burst reading style. The romantic entanglement seemed to be pasted on. The action was ok but too sudden for the long progression to it. Even so, I'm a fan. Here's to hope that further stories are worthy of the great lead characters.
