The Forgotten Man, by Robert Crais
I heard someone say The Forgotten Man does for Cole what LA Requiem did for his partner, Joe Pike. In a way, I agree. We learn more of Cole's back story and why he became a private detective. It's also a more introspective and less wise-cracking Cole than we see in Crais's earlier books.
I don't want to talk more about the plot because there's a lot to give away.
Crais's Elvis Cole series is one of the great modern PI series. You can't go wrong with any of them.
