    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 the book: "They...

    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, strong, sile...

    What a treat it is to have Elvis Cole and Joe Pike back! When teenager Tyson Connor’s mother Devon calls Elvis, she is afraid her son is selling drugs because he’s suddenly flush with cash and wearing expensive clothes. Initially, Elvis suspects the same thing, but a little more investigat...

    EXCERPT: "...these kids leave prints and DNA everywhere."The world slowed when I heard him. I said, " Kids.""They're kids. Three morons."I said it again, just to be sure."Kids.""Teenagers, young adults, whatever. A female and two males. I'm not saying they're little children."I stared out the window...

But when they bump up against a trio of teens who specialize in upscale burglaries, they may have met their match.For much of the f...

    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 believable whi...

    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 is beautiful would...

    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 – ...
