The Monkey’s Raincoat

I liked this book written by Robert Crais. When Ellen Lang’s husband disappears with their son, she hires Elvis Cole to track him down. A quiet and seemingly submissive wife, Ellen can’t even write a check without him. All she wants is to get him and her son back – no questions asked. The search for Ellen’s errant husband leads Elvis into the seamier side of Hollywood. He soon learns that Mort Lang is a down-on-his-luck talent agent who associates with a schlocky movie producer, and the last place he was spotted was at a party thrown by a famous and very well-connected ex-Matador. But no one has seen him since – including his B-movie girlfriend.

This is the first novel about Elvis Cole. The title comes from a 17th century Japanese poet.
