Lullaby Town, a dark drive down some
rockspotted track. We are silent. Killers.
With gloves from the farmer’s wife we trudge
to a cold outbuilding, strip-lit and grey.
Machines and men turn in the shed next door.
Protests and filthy jokes from the doomed birds.

A lesson from the farmer. The upturned turkey
two days from celebration, yawning red
from the pause of his last interrupted sentence.
The floor darkening and the farmer’s instructions
lost in our comprehension of Christmas lunch.
With one smooth rip the bird is stripped to cook.

The room spins with sudden birds, headless and
warm against our rubber hands. We stamp our
feet in hope of circulation, kicking crimson
feathers in some pillow fight between our knees.
The sun not yet risen over the morning hill.
Our tea drunk quietly. Our lunch quieter still. ( )

typical Joe Pike / Elvis Cole
LA scene — not bloody / Risque
good story — funny guys

People who read my reviews will know that I'm not a fan of literary fiction. Elmore Leonard has a list of rules on writing, one of those rules is to leave out the parts that people skip. Literary fiction is loaded with those parts you want to skip. Robert Crais must be a fan of Leonard as well.

The last book I started to read was a literary fiction author trying to write a crime thriller. Lullaby Town is Robert's example of why literary fiction authors can't make the switch to genre fiction.

Elvis and Pike are back, this time sorting out what should have been a simple family reunion, but ends up with the New York mafia wanting them dead. My only regret with finishing this novel is that my pile of Crais books have now been read and I have to buy the rest before reading more. ( )

Elvis Cole is out to locate the ex-wife of Hollywood director Peter Alan Nelsen. When he does find her he discovers she has other more pressing problems before she can consider a meeting between her, her son and Nelsen. This is when Pike steps in to lend a hand and it becomes a roller coaster ride to the finish.

Fast-paced and enjoyable. ( )
