Book 5 in the Elvis Cole series (1995)
In this next episode of the Elvis Cole series we are transported to a small town in Luisiana, where things are not quite as they seem.
Cole is hired to uncover the past of Jodi Taylor, an actress in a hit TV show. So he leaves his native Los Angeles to head for Louisiana in search of Jodi’s biological parents. But before he can tackle the mystery of the actress’s background, he is up against a crazed housewife, a Cajun, and a menacing hundred-year-old river turtle named Luther. As Elvis learns about the enigmatic actress’s origins, he also discovers the real reason he’s been sent to Louisiana.
