Private investigator Elvis Cole and his enigmatic partner Joe Pike are back on the case in this brilliant new thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robert Crais.
Adele Schumacher isn't a typical worried mom. When she hires Elvis to find her missing son, a controversial podcaster named Josh Shoe, she brings a bag filled with cash, bizarre tales of government conspiracies, and a squad of professional bodyguards. Finding Josh should be simple, but Elvis quickly learns he isn't alone in the hunt—a deadly team of mysterious strangers are determined to find Josh and his adult film star girlfriend first.
With dangerous secrets lurking behind every lead, Elvis needs his friend Joe Pike more than ever to uncover the truth about Josh, corrupt politicians, and the vicious business cartels rotting the heart of Los Angeles from within. And when Elvis's estranged girlfriend Lucy Chenier and her son, Ben, return, he learns just how much he has to lose...if he survives.
Written with the heart, humor, and relentless suspense for which Crais is famous, Racing the Light delivers Elvis Cole's most dangerous case yet.

"A whirlwind of action, fisticuffs, and stray bullets, along with Crais’ usual dose of heart and humor, make for a riveting and satisfying read."
—Booklist (starred review)
“Racing The Light is another grand slam for the master storyteller Robert Crais. If there’s a better dynamic duo than Elvis Cole and Joe Pike in all of crime fiction, I’m not aware of it.”
“I devoured Robert Crais‘s Racing the Light, starring his iconic duo PI Elvis Cole and ex-cop Joe Pike. This time, Cole and Pike search for a missing son at the behest of the boy’s mother, and Racing the Light packs plenty of twists and turns to keep the pages turning. What makes Crais’s writing stand out is the deft humor, warmth, and heart on every page. Crais does the impossible in this thriller: moves the story at a breakneck pace while creating characters you absolutely adore.”
—Lisa Scottoline, author of What Happened to the Bennetts
“Elvis and Joe return in Racing the Light, a novel as deeply human as it is compelling. If you want to understand why Robert Crais is considered a modern master of crime fiction, crack this book open now. His trademark humor and insight drive every page.”
"Crais' affection for his characters, masterful pacing, and dry wit make this one of his better efforts...[Crais] keeps the traditional detective novel alive and well."
