    Once you start reading this, it'll be hard to stop. I ended up finishing it at 3am, and then I was so sad it was over. One more fantastic ride in a series that I love. ...

    THE WANTED. (2017). Robert Crais. ***. Disappointing. Mr. Crais in this, his seventeenth novel, has resuscitated a time-worn plot device and peopled it with uninteresting characters facing boring and predictable situations. There no signs of new approaches in this novel; the character...

    Rounded up to 4 stars. Elvis Cole is asked by a concerned mother why her son has an extravagant Rolex watch, and the truth is horrifying: he and two friends are involved in a criminal enterprise, and there are two stone-cold killers, posing as cops, after them. Here is the essence of t...

    Elvis and Joe rarely disappoint for a fun, easy read in the Private Investigator genre. Joe is tough and monosyllabic. Elvis is a self deprecating smart ass. And you can always rely on both of them to look out for the little guy who has wandered off the path. 3.65 stars rounded up. ...

    I am a huge fan of Elvis Cole, but The Wanted fell flat for me. I generally love reading about both Elvis and Joe Pike, but I could barely stomach reading about the two ridiculous bad guys ? they were way too over the top for me. I also didn?t feel that Tyson Connor was very believ...

    If you internet search Robert Crais it is interesting to note that he was greatly influenced by the works of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. It you add this piece of information to the fact that he was a writer for some early 80's made for TV series (Hill Street blues, Cagney an...

    Disappointing book #17 in an otherwise entertaining crime fiction series. I thought it read like a 1970's "Made for TV" movie with the pace, prose and complexity of last year's calendar. Where have you gone Elvis and Joe Pike! ...

    I enjoyed this addition to the Elvis Cole and Joe Pike collection. This one felt a little different because the problems involved three young adults with a total lack of caring for the consequences of the crimes they were committing. Their view of what was fun was painfully innocent. T...

    I?ve really enjoyed the one-off novels Crais has written but for some reason I?d largely avoided his Elvis Cole/Joe Pike books. I did pick up the very first book in the Cole series, The Monkey?s Raincoat, some years back but I found it dated ? well, it was written in 1987 ? a...

    Private eye Elvis Cole and his partner, Joe Pike, make a great team - reminiscent of the late Robert B. Parker's Spenser and Hawk. Together, they can take on the world. But when they bump up against a trio of teens who specialize in upscale burglaries, they may have met their match. ...

    Many many years ago I stumbled across the first book featuring the funny and enigmatic Elvis Cole, and it was love at first book! I have been a huge fan of the series since, and they are the type of comfort books I turn to when I feel a bit book-jaded. Crais always delivers a solid mys...

    I still love Cole and Pike a lot! Crais knows what he is doing. If you've never read a book in this series, begin with the first one and keep on reading... You'll have pleasure for a looong time, lucky you! As Amber said when she saw Pike for the first time: "May I have 2, please!"...

    I have been reading the Pike/Elvis saga for years, and continue to enjoy the relationship between the two and the problems they get themselves involved in! Just a fun book to read, with bumbling bad guys, off the wall teenage burglars, and interesting police officers with a little bit ...

    For some reason, I have not read a whole lot of Robert Crais' books, which is actually a little odd as I have really liked most the ones that I did read. The same goes for this one with Elvis Cole as the main protagonist and Joe Pike only playing a minor supporting role. Crais sets a...

    I want to start out by saying that this is my first Cole/Pike story. I also want to say it wasn't bad - I just...felt bored. Maybe it's my fault. In the bookstore, this was just on a normal shelf - not on a display table or prominently placed or anything, so to say that this cover ...

    This book hooked me in...This is book 17 in the Elvis Cole series but the first that I have read. It read fine as a stand alone story but there wasn't too much insight into the characters. Elvis is hired to look into how a teenager at high school has suddenly come into large amount...

    3.5?s for me. I have to admit that I?ve never previously read a Robert Crais book. No particular reason. I think that from being such a creature of habit, I tend to stick with Authors that I already know and love. But thanks to NetGalley, I?ve now had my reading tastes shift t...

    We all waited forEVER for this book, which was supposed to be out more than a year ago. The problem, is that Crais' stuff is SO good, that I finished the book within 24 hours. Elvis Cole, and Joe Pike are icons, in modern-day crime fiction. The stories are so well-written, with such a ...

    It's been too long since the last Elvis Cole and Joe Pike book came out. For red blooded ?murican(sic) women it's been way too long since the last Joe Pike was published. Just sayin'. This book went far too quickly considering how much I enjoy the smart-ass Elvis Cole and the ummm, s...
