Reviews A Dangerous Man (Elvis Cole #18; Joe Pike #7)
- AsI have stated before, I have been a diehard fan of Robert Crais/Elvis Cole/Joe Pike for THIRTY YEARS. Seriously, when The Monkey’s Raincoat was published in 1987, I was working in a public library, grabbed it as soon as it came in, and was HOOKED. Since then, this has been one of the most reliable series in the mystery genre – consistent as in “OMG, has a new book coming out! YAY!” So I was happy to receive a copy of The Wanted from Pen...
- This series never disappoints.

- This was my first Robert Crais novel. I could definitely see this being a TV series -- or movie. To me, there was nothing particularly ground-breaking or suspenseful here. The novel dives right in to the action. The settings and sequences are well done, but I didn't feel like I had any particular stake in the characters. So, I didn't really care about the outcome. For me, this was a bit of a mindless airplane read, thus my two-star rating.
- Leaving the bank, Joe Pike thwarts the abduction of the bank teller who just helped him. But when the perps are released on bail then killed execution style, he becomes a prime suspect and asks PI Elvis Cole for help.This series never disappoints! Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for an early copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
- I haven't missed a Robert Crais book ever. Add this one to the list of blockbusters! I even read it in less than 24 hours, something I almost never do. This time round Elvis and Joe find themselves involved in a kidnapping. Will they protect the innocent victim? Uh, duh! Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for an advanced copy in exchange for an honest review.
- all these books are excellent
- Thank you netgalley. Excellent read
