display_descriptionVietnam veteran Elvis Cole, working as a private investigator in Los Angeles, becomes caught up in a web of deceit, drugs, and murder when he is hired to find a missing Hollywood agent who has disappeared along with his young son. "Meet Elvis Cole, L.A. Private Eye.... He quotes Jiminy Cricket and carries a .38. He's a literate, wisecracking Vietnam vet who is determined to never grow up. When quiet Ellen Lang enters Elvis Cole's Disney-Deco office, she's lost something very valuable--her husband and her young son. The case seems simple enough, but Elvis isn't thrilled. Neither is his enigmatic partner and firepower, Joe Pike. Their search down the seamy side of Hollywood's studio lots and sculptured lawns soon leads them deep into a nasty netherworld of drugs, sex--and murder. Now the case is getting interesting, but it's also turned ugly. Because everybody, from cops to starlets to crooks, has declared war on Ellen and Elvis. For Ellen, it isn't Funtown anymore. For Elvis, it's just a living... He hopes." -- Provided by publisher.
