The body of a young woman is discovered in the hills above L.A... Just another murder? Or a death that will rip apart a family and destroy the friendship between private investigator Elvis Cole and former police officer Joe Pike?
The dead woman was once Pike's girlfriend. Her father treats Pike as part of the family and wants he and Cole to find out what happened. But Pike's brutal past and the police investigation point to a different story. Silent, brooding, Joe Pike is the most dangerous man Elvis Cole has ever met. He has killed before, but has he killed again? Cole would trust Pike with his life, but like everyone else, does he really know him? In a world mired in lies and deceit, Elvis must find out the truth, and some truths are hard to bear.
'L.A. Requiem' is Robert Crais' masterpiece - a massive novel of violence and revenge, of friendship and love, of a city at war with itself.
