Elvis Cole #2
Published by Brilliance Audio
Read by Patrick G. Lawlor
Duration: 6 hours, 52 minutes
Synopsis: Elvis Cole and his partner Joe Pike are hired by a Los Angeles businessman to find a missing ancient copy of the Hagakure, a book that details Bushido, or the way of the Samurai. Along the way, they discover hidden family secrets, connection to the Yakuza (Japan's ultra-violent mafia) and deal with a kidnapping and modern followers of the Bushido.
It is narrated by Patrick G. Lawlor who does a solid job of catching Cole's wisecracking side but overall does not catch on to Elvis as well as the narrators of his later books do.
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5.
This book can be found on Amazon.com here: Stalking the Angel.
