Mix two parts noir with one part stilted dialogue. Sprinkle generously with casual sexism and simmer until done...

Let's hope the rest of the series gets better than this. ( )

My first Robert Crais novel, and it was quite good. I liked Elvis Cole, the private detective, and his partner, Joe Pike. Both are quiet, dangerous, and principled in their own ways. The plot unfolded well, suspenseful all the way through to the end. There was even a woman, their client, who strengthened under pressure, coming into her own. I will definitely read more by this author! ( )

Now I know why this was picked as one of 100 favorite mysteries of 20th century by Independent Booksellers Assoc. Tightly written with indelible characters and mile-a-minute pacing. First in the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike books, Elvis shines as the kick-ass P.I. looking for the kidnapped husband and son of a distraught Southern California woman. Sharp-witted and dogged in his pursuit of justice, he tangles with both the police and drug kingpins to find the woman's son and the killer of her husband. A book you won't forget; I literally couldn't put down. Highest recommendation.

My default genre has always been mystery/thrillers and I was in the mood for one so picked up the first in the Elvis Cole series - a wise cracking private investigator and his strong-and-silent-type partner, Joe Pike. It's been a long time since I read a Cole mystery and I'd forgotten how much I enjoy the weird, clever dialog. The mystery is a pretty standard format; the enjoyment is the characters....the PI with a big heart and the deadly, silent Pike.

This book fit my mood perfectly - I'll look for another one.....
