The Wanted Reviews

    Oct 13, 2017

    I have read all of this brilliant series by Robert Crais, and had given up on any additions as Crais appeared to have abandoned Cole, so when I heard this was available, I knew I wanted to read it as soon as possible. Set in LA, the witty wisecracking PI, Elvis Cole and his strong, sil...

    One of the blurbs for this book insists that this may be the "deadliest case" that Elvis Cole and Joe Pike have ever taken on. Considering some of the previous cases that they've barely survived, that may be a bit of a stretch, but The Wanted is still a very engrossing thriller and it'...

    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 childre...

    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...

    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...

    Alas; I have reached the current end in the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series, a collection of private investigator thrillers set predominantly in the Los Angeles basin. Over seventeen books, we've mocked Elvis' office clock, tread warily around his feral cat and winced at his taste in shirts...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. In the Darkness, Everyone is Alone: "The Wanted" by Robert Crais In the darkness, everyone is alone. None to speak to you but silence, The quiet of words unspoken, An old friend scarce known. A silence we d...

    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...

    3.5 stars In this addition to the 'Elvis Cole - Joe Pike' series, the Los Angeles private detectives try to help a trio of over-privileged teenage thieves. The book can be read as a standalone. ***** Devon Connor is worried about her 17-year-old son Tyson. The troubled boy w...

    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...

    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. ...

    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 in...

    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 ...

    8/10 I?ve gone completely off the rails, I?ve done the unthinkable! I?ve jumped into a series on the 17th novel and not the 1st novel, I?m surely due to go to the looney bin soon?! I must be as I loved this! After reading Andrew?s great review of this one I decided I?...

    The Elvis Cole detective books are perhaps the most progressive series in the mystery genre today. This is a startling fact when you consider Robert Crais?s The Wanted is the 17th go round with this private investigator and his stoic partner Joe Pike. What makes these books so pionee...

    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...

    Almost a perfect story, save the stupidity of a couple characters. 8 of 10 stars ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Great Stuff I may have come late to the party starting at the seventeenth book in the series, but the best part of that is that I have sixteen more books in the series all available now. I don't have to wait for Crais to publish the next volume. I got lots to play with. His characte...

    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...

    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...

    Many thanks to Goodreads and Simon & Schuster for my free proof copy of The Wanted by Robert Crais. Well straight away l have to say that I'm a big fan of Robert Crais. There's not one of his books that I've not enjoyed and The Wanted was no exception. If you're a fan of American ...

    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! ...

    Thank God I finished when I did....I have no fingernails left. Review to follow. ...

    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...

    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. ...

    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...

    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. ...

    I have read all of this brilliant series by Robert Crais, and had given up on any additions as Crais appeared to have abandoned Cole, so when I heard this was available, I knew I wanted to read it as soon as possible. Set in LA, the witty wisecracking PI, Elvis Cole and his strong, sil...

    One of the blurbs for this book insists that this may be the "deadliest case" that Elvis Cole and Joe Pike have ever taken on. Considering some of the previous cases that they've barely survived, that may be a bit of a stretch, but The Wanted is still a very engrossing thriller and it'...

    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 childre...

    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...

    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...

    Alas; I have reached the current end in the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series, a collection of private investigator thrillers set predominantly in the Los Angeles basin. Over seventeen books, we've mocked Elvis' office clock, tread warily around his feral cat and winced at his taste in shirts...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. In the Darkness, Everyone is Alone: "The Wanted" by Robert Crais In the darkness, everyone is alone. None to speak to you but silence, The quiet of words unspoken, An old friend scarce known. A silence we d...

    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...

    3.5 stars In this addition to the 'Elvis Cole - Joe Pike' series, the Los Angeles private detectives try to help a trio of over-privileged teenage thieves. The book can be read as a standalone. ***** Devon Connor is worried about her 17-year-old son Tyson. The troubled boy w...

    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...

    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. ...

    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 in...

    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 ...

    8/10 I?ve gone completely off the rails, I?ve done the unthinkable! I?ve jumped into a series on the 17th novel and not the 1st novel, I?m surely due to go to the looney bin soon?! I must be as I loved this! After reading Andrew?s great review of this one I decided I?...

    The Elvis Cole detective books are perhaps the most progressive series in the mystery genre today. This is a startling fact when you consider Robert Crais?s The Wanted is the 17th go round with this private investigator and his stoic partner Joe Pike. What makes these books so pionee...

    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...

    Almost a perfect story, save the stupidity of a couple characters. 8 of 10 stars ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Great Stuff I may have come late to the party starting at the seventeenth book in the series, but the best part of that is that I have sixteen more books in the series all available now. I don't have to wait for Crais to publish the next volume. I got lots to play with. His characte...

    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...

    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...

    Many thanks to Goodreads and Simon & Schuster for my free proof copy of The Wanted by Robert Crais. Well straight away l have to say that I'm a big fan of Robert Crais. There's not one of his books that I've not enjoyed and The Wanted was no exception. If you're a fan of American ...

    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 ...

    The Elvis Cole detective books are perhaps the most progressive series in the mystery genre today. This is a startling fact when you consider Robert Crais?s The Wanted is the 17th go round with this private investigator and his stoic partner Joe Pike. What makes these books so pionee...

    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...

    Almost a perfect story, save the stupidity of a couple characters. 8 of 10 stars ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Great Stuff I may have come late to the party starting at the seventeenth book in the series, but the best part of that is that I have sixteen more books in the series all available now. I don't have to wait for Crais to publish the next volume. I got lots to play with. His characte...

    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...

    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...

    Many thanks to Goodreads and Simon & Schuster for my free proof copy of The Wanted by Robert Crais. Well straight away l have to say that I'm a big fan of Robert Crais. There's not one of his books that I've not enjoyed and The Wanted was no exception. If you're a fan of American ...

    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! ...

    Thank God I finished when I did....I have no fingernails left. Review to follow. ...

    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...

    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. ...

    One of the blurbs for this book insists that this may be the "deadliest case" that Elvis Cole and Joe Pike have ever taken on. Considering some of the previous cases that they've barely survived, that may be a bit of a stretch, but The Wanted is still a very engrossing thriller and it'...

    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...

    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...

    Alas; I have reached the current end in the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series, a collection of private investigator thrillers set predominantly in the Los Angeles basin. Over seventeen books, we've mocked Elvis' office clock, tread warily around his feral cat and winced at his taste in shirts...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. In the Darkness, Everyone is Alone: "The Wanted" by Robert Crais In the darkness, everyone is alone. None to speak to you but silence, The quiet of words unspoken, An old friend scarce known. A silence we d...

    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...

    3.5 stars In this addition to the 'Elvis Cole - Joe Pike' series, the Los Angeles private detectives try to help a trio of over-privileged teenage thieves. The book can be read as a standalone. ***** Devon Connor is worried about her 17-year-old son Tyson. The troubled boy w...

    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...

    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. ...

    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 in...

    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 ...

    The Elvis Cole detective books are perhaps the most progressive series in the mystery genre today. This is a startling fact when you consider Robert Crais?s The Wanted is the 17th go round with this private investigator and his stoic partner Joe Pike. What makes these books so pionee...

    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...

    Almost a perfect story, save the stupidity of a couple characters. 8 of 10 stars ...

    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 ...

    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 ...

    Great Stuff I may have come late to the party starting at the seventeenth book in the series, but the best part of that is that I have sixteen more books in the series all available now. I don't have to wait for Crais to publish the next volume. I got lots to play with. His characte...

    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...

    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...

    I have read all of this brilliant series by Robert Crais, and had given up on any additions as Crais appeared to have abandoned Cole, so when I heard this was available, I knew I wanted to read it as soon as possible. Set in LA, the witty wisecracking PI, Elvis Cole and his strong, sil...

    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...

    Alas; I have reached the current end in the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series, a collection of private investigator thrillers set predominantly in the Los Angeles basin. Over seventeen books, we've mocked Elvis' office clock, tread warily around his feral cat and winced at his taste in shirts...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. In the Darkness, Everyone is Alone: "The Wanted" by Robert Crais In the darkness, everyone is alone. None to speak to you but silence, The quiet of words unspoken, An old friend scarce known. A silence we d...

    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...

    3.5 stars In this addition to the 'Elvis Cole - Joe Pike' series, the Los Angeles private detectives try to help a trio of over-privileged teenage thieves. The book can be read as a standalone. ***** Devon Connor is worried about her 17-year-old son Tyson. The troubled boy w...

    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...

    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. ...

    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 in...

    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 ...

    8/10 I?ve gone completely off the rails, I?ve done the unthinkable! I?ve jumped into a series on the 17th novel and not the 1st novel, I?m surely due to go to the looney bin soon?! I must be as I loved this! After reading Andrew?s great review of this one I decided I?...

    The Elvis Cole detective books are perhaps the most progressive series in the mystery genre today. This is a startling fact when you consider Robert Crais?s The Wanted is the 17th go round with this private investigator and his stoic partner Joe Pike. What makes these books so pionee...
