    Robert Crais's fabulous crime thriller series set in Southern California and Los Angeles, featuring the well established duo of the strong, silent and dangerous Joe Pike with his military background and PI Elvis Cole returns with this latest cracker of an addition. Joe is at the bank w...

    Honestly, this series is so damn addictive. Anyhoo, there's already a shwack of reviews so all I'll say is it delivers exactly what you expect....Crais's stylish prose & a white knuckle ride courtesy of Elvis & Joe. Just get it. ...

    The usual very good book by Crais. This story belongs to Joe more than it does to Elvis. Joe stops a young woman from being kidnapped, but two days later she goes off the grid. He quickly realizes she has been taken again and, with Elvis' help, decides to get her back. The ending is su...

    Joe Pike Rides Again!! Another incredible case of a young woman, with no knowledge of her dead parents former life, being hunted by a man her mother stole 19 million dollars from! This happened twenty-five years ago and the woman, Isabel, has no clue about either the money or her p...

    7.5/10 This is only my second book in this series so I'm definitely approaching things from the wrong end, but by no means do I think that hindered my enjoyment of it and I never felt like I was missing out on something. Whereas the last one I read seemed to focus more on Elvis ...

    AsI have stated before, I have been a diehard fan of Robert Crais/Elvis Cole/Joe Pike for THIRTY YEARS. Seriously, when The Monkey?s Raincoat was published in 1987, I was working in a public library, grabbed it as soon as it came in, and was HOOKED. Since then, this has been one of t...

    I consider myself a Robert Crais fan, but even I have to admit this is a pretty lightweight addition to the series. This book is shown under the publication details as 352 pages and yet I read it in less than 12 hours with all kinds of interruptions from workmen in my house for about f...

    ? ? ? ? 1/2 (rounded up) This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- Pike clipped his .357 to his waist, and went to his Jeep. Sometimes Pike enjoyed silence. Sometimes the silence scared him. There's nothing like a riveting scene to start off a Thriller, ri...

    It's a quick, pithy read. Sentences are short; not too many words on the page. Real men are laconic; bozos have to say more; women twitter about cluelessly, either baleful and bitter or naive and vulnerable. It's a straight-forward story; it's not a bad read; it has some of Crais's tra...

    Confession: when a Robert Crais book releases, I drop everything and read it, which happened yesterday with this. It's a very clean, clear, and fast story, as always. Joe Pike is the main character, who I prefer to Elvis Cole, but they are both here in full rescue mode. The hallmark of...

    Joe Pike and Elvis are back in a solid, page turning thriller. ...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Simon & Schuster UK for an advance copy of A Dangerous Man, the eighteenth novel to feature LA based Joe Pike and PI Elvis Cole. Pike has just left the bank when he sees teller, Isabel Roland, being bundled into a car. He manages to rescue her...

    This was my first Robert Crais novel. I could definitely see this being a TV series -- or movie. To me, there was nothing particularly ground-breaking or suspenseful here. The novel dives right in to the action. The settings and sequences are well done, but I didn't feel like I had any...

    As always, Robert Crais books are worth the wait. This one is a little more Joe Pike focused, so it's a little more serious, but Elvis and Joe are so good working together. Joe kinda gets involved by accident in this one with a bank teller, but as always, the guys protect the innocent ...

    Can't make up my mind which I prefer - strong, silent Joe Pike or wisecracking Elvis Cole - but I love how they take turns in being given prominence. As expected, this did not disappoint. Fast moving, tense,lots of action, plenty of twists. Just great fun and a guaranteed winner f...

    4.5 stars. Great installment in Pike/ Cole series. Lean, to the point, and well written. I sure wished he churned out books faster. Great read. ...

    I have been reading (and loving) the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series for years. These men are what they are, and I love them both! I've hated the fact that I've been in the waiting-for-the-next-book-to-be-written mode for a while, now, so I was thrilled to get my hands on A Dangerous Man! T...

    I liked how Joe got pulled into this one and how once in the middle he was determined to help the girl and do the right thing. As time went on things got messy, so much was going on that came from the past. I felt for bad for Isabel and all that she learned about her family, but by the...

    The Elvis Cole / Joe Pike series is definitely one of my favorites. I love the way they contrast each other, but remain loyal friends and partners. I can't wait for the next one! As a side note... For anyone that hasn't read any of the books in the series, you definitely need to st...

    I wanted so bad to like this book. I?ve read all of his books. I?ve noticed that most of his females are one dimensional but it didn?t ruin my enjoyment of his writing. But I couldn?t make it all the way through the book. There isn?t one likable woman in this book. And they...

    Another great read from Robert Crais. This one, while billed as Elvis Cole #18; Joe Pike #7, is mostly about Pike and his attempts to protect a young woman from kidnappers. Cole is the wingman in this thriller. Pike provides most of the action and Cole provides the procedural search fo...

    7.5/10 This is only my second book in this series so I'm definitely approaching things from the wrong end, but by no means do I think that hindered my enjoyment of it and I never felt like I was missing out on something. Whereas the last one I read seemed to focus more on Elvis ...

    AsI have stated before, I have been a diehard fan of Robert Crais/Elvis Cole/Joe Pike for THIRTY YEARS. Seriously, when The Monkey?s Raincoat was published in 1987, I was working in a public library, grabbed it as soon as it came in, and was HOOKED. Since then, this has been one of t...

    I consider myself a Robert Crais fan, but even I have to admit this is a pretty lightweight addition to the series. This book is shown under the publication details as 352 pages and yet I read it in less than 12 hours with all kinds of interruptions from workmen in my house for about f...

    It's a quick, pithy read. Sentences are short; not too many words on the page. Real men are laconic; bozos have to say more; women twitter about cluelessly, either baleful and bitter or naive and vulnerable. It's a straight-forward story; it's not a bad read; it has some of Crais's tra...

    Confession: when a Robert Crais book releases, I drop everything and read it, which happened yesterday with this. It's a very clean, clear, and fast story, as always. Joe Pike is the main character, who I prefer to Elvis Cole, but they are both here in full rescue mode. The hallmark of...

    This was my first Robert Crais novel. I could definitely see this being a TV series -- or movie. To me, there was nothing particularly ground-breaking or suspenseful here. The novel dives right in to the action. The settings and sequences are well done, but I didn't feel like I had any...

    As always, Robert Crais books are worth the wait. This one is a little more Joe Pike focused, so it's a little more serious, but Elvis and Joe are so good working together. Joe kinda gets involved by accident in this one with a bank teller, but as always, the guys protect the innocent ...

    Can't make up my mind which I prefer - strong, silent Joe Pike or wisecracking Elvis Cole - but I love how they take turns in being given prominence. As expected, this did not disappoint. Fast moving, tense,lots of action, plenty of twists. Just great fun and a guaranteed winner f...

    I haven't missed a Robert Crais book ever. Add this one to the list of blockbusters! I even read it in less than 24 hours, something I almost never do. This time round Elvis and Joe find themselves involved in a kidnapping. Will they protect the innocent victim? Uh, duh! Thanks to Netg...

    I have been reading (and loving) the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series for years. These men are what they are, and I love them both! I've hated the fact that I've been in the waiting-for-the-next-book-to-be-written mode for a while, now, so I was thrilled to get my hands on A Dangerous Man! T...

    I liked how Joe got pulled into this one and how once in the middle he was determined to help the girl and do the right thing. As time went on things got messy, so much was going on that came from the past. I felt for bad for Isabel and all that she learned about her family, but by the...

    The Elvis Cole / Joe Pike series is definitely one of my favorites. I love the way they contrast each other, but remain loyal friends and partners. I can't wait for the next one! As a side note... For anyone that hasn't read any of the books in the series, you definitely need to st...

    Another great read from Robert Crais. This one, while billed as Elvis Cole #18; Joe Pike #7, is mostly about Pike and his attempts to protect a young woman from kidnappers. Cole is the wingman in this thriller. Pike provides most of the action and Cole provides the procedural search fo...

    Always a thrill to read a Cole, Pike book, Fast paced and filled with high stake odds against the people they help. Great storyline as always. ...

    I haven't missed a Robert Crais book ever. Add this one to the list of blockbusters! I even read it in less than 24 hours, something I almost never do. This time round Elvis and Joe find themselves involved in a kidnapping. Will they protect the innocent victim? Uh, duh! Thanks to Netg...

    This series never disappoints. ...

    I have been reading (and loving) the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series for years. These men are what they are, and I love them both! I've hated the fact that I've been in the waiting-for-the-next-book-to-be-written mode for a while, now, so I was thrilled to get my hands on A Dangerous Man! T...

    Joe Pike front and center as the main character with Elvis Cole sliding in to be backup makes for an amazing and entertaining read in the Elvis/Joe series! If ever a girl was in trouble, these are the guys that she would want standing beside her! The author does an excellent job of bri...

    I liked how Joe got pulled into this one and how once in the middle he was determined to help the girl and do the right thing. As time went on things got messy, so much was going on that came from the past. I felt for bad for Isabel and all that she learned about her family, but by the...

    The Elvis Cole / Joe Pike series is definitely one of my favorites. I love the way they contrast each other, but remain loyal friends and partners. I can't wait for the next one! As a side note... For anyone that hasn't read any of the books in the series, you definitely need to st...

    I wanted so bad to like this book. I?ve read all of his books. I?ve noticed that most of his females are one dimensional but it didn?t ruin my enjoyment of his writing. But I couldn?t make it all the way through the book. There isn?t one likable woman in this book. And they...

    Another great read from Robert Crais. This one, while billed as Elvis Cole #18; Joe Pike #7, is mostly about Pike and his attempts to protect a young woman from kidnappers. Cole is the wingman in this thriller. Pike provides most of the action and Cole provides the procedural search fo...

    Always a thrill to read a Cole, Pike book, Fast paced and filled with high stake odds against the people they help. Great storyline as always. ...

    Preferred to have an Elvis Cole book, got a Joe Pike book instead. Very standard plot, nothing surprising, and it is way too short for a whole year of waiting. ...

    A quick read and an exciting thriller. Cole and Pike at their best again. ...

    Joe Pike teams up once again with Elvis Cole. Young Isabel Roland works as a bank teller. Pike walks in to do a transaction right before lunchtime, and on his way back to his car, he witnesses two men kidnapping her as she leaves the bank for lunch. Pike chases them down, saves Isabel,...

    The usual very good book by Crais. This story belongs to Joe more than it does to Elvis. Joe stops a young woman from being kidnapped, but two days later she goes off the grid. He quickly realizes she has been taken again and, with Elvis' help, decides to get her back. The ending is su...

    7.5/10 This is only my second book in this series so I'm definitely approaching things from the wrong end, but by no means do I think that hindered my enjoyment of it and I never felt like I was missing out on something. Whereas the last one I read seemed to focus more on Elvis ...

    AsI have stated before, I have been a diehard fan of Robert Crais/Elvis Cole/Joe Pike for THIRTY YEARS. Seriously, when The Monkey?s Raincoat was published in 1987, I was working in a public library, grabbed it as soon as it came in, and was HOOKED. Since then, this has been one of t...

    I consider myself a Robert Crais fan, but even I have to admit this is a pretty lightweight addition to the series. This book is shown under the publication details as 352 pages and yet I read it in less than 12 hours with all kinds of interruptions from workmen in my house for about f...

    It's a quick, pithy read. Sentences are short; not too many words on the page. Real men are laconic; bozos have to say more; women twitter about cluelessly, either baleful and bitter or naive and vulnerable. It's a straight-forward story; it's not a bad read; it has some of Crais's tra...

    Confession: when a Robert Crais book releases, I drop everything and read it, which happened yesterday with this. It's a very clean, clear, and fast story, as always. Joe Pike is the main character, who I prefer to Elvis Cole, but they are both here in full rescue mode. The hallmark of...

    This was my first Robert Crais novel. I could definitely see this being a TV series -- or movie. To me, there was nothing particularly ground-breaking or suspenseful here. The novel dives right in to the action. The settings and sequences are well done, but I didn't feel like I had any...

    As always, Robert Crais books are worth the wait. This one is a little more Joe Pike focused, so it's a little more serious, but Elvis and Joe are so good working together. Joe kinda gets involved by accident in this one with a bank teller, but as always, the guys protect the innocent ...

    I have been reading (and loving) the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series for years. These men are what they are, and I love them both! I've hated the fact that I've been in the waiting-for-the-next-book-to-be-written mode for a while, now, so I was thrilled to get my hands on A Dangerous Man! T...

    Honestly, this series is so damn addictive. Anyhoo, there's already a shwack of reviews so all I'll say is it delivers exactly what you expect....Crais's stylish prose & a white knuckle ride courtesy of Elvis & Joe. Just get it. ...

    Honestly, this series is so damn addictive. Anyhoo, there's already a shwack of reviews so all I'll say is it delivers exactly what you expect....Crais's stylish prose & a white knuckle ride courtesy of Elvis & Joe. Just get it. ...

    The usual very good book by Crais. This story belongs to Joe more than it does to Elvis. Joe stops a young woman from being kidnapped, but two days later she goes off the grid. He quickly realizes she has been taken again and, with Elvis' help, decides to get her back. The ending is su...

    Joe Pike Rides Again!! Another incredible case of a young woman, with no knowledge of her dead parents former life, being hunted by a man her mother stole 19 million dollars from! This happened twenty-five years ago and the woman, Isabel, has no clue about either the money or her p...

    7.5/10 This is only my second book in this series so I'm definitely approaching things from the wrong end, but by no means do I think that hindered my enjoyment of it and I never felt like I was missing out on something. Whereas the last one I read seemed to focus more on Elvis ...

    AsI have stated before, I have been a diehard fan of Robert Crais/Elvis Cole/Joe Pike for THIRTY YEARS. Seriously, when The Monkey?s Raincoat was published in 1987, I was working in a public library, grabbed it as soon as it came in, and was HOOKED. Since then, this has been one of t...

    I consider myself a Robert Crais fan, but even I have to admit this is a pretty lightweight addition to the series. This book is shown under the publication details as 352 pages and yet I read it in less than 12 hours with all kinds of interruptions from workmen in my house for about f...

    ? ? ? ? 1/2 (rounded up) This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- Pike clipped his .357 to his waist, and went to his Jeep. Sometimes Pike enjoyed silence. Sometimes the silence scared him. There's nothing like a riveting scene to start off a Thriller, ri...

    It's a quick, pithy read. Sentences are short; not too many words on the page. Real men are laconic; bozos have to say more; women twitter about cluelessly, either baleful and bitter or naive and vulnerable. It's a straight-forward story; it's not a bad read; it has some of Crais's tra...

    Confession: when a Robert Crais book releases, I drop everything and read it, which happened yesterday with this. It's a very clean, clear, and fast story, as always. Joe Pike is the main character, who I prefer to Elvis Cole, but they are both here in full rescue mode. The hallmark of...

    Joe Pike and Elvis are back in a solid, page turning thriller. ...

    I would like to thank Netgalley and Simon & Schuster UK for an advance copy of A Dangerous Man, the eighteenth novel to feature LA based Joe Pike and PI Elvis Cole. Pike has just left the bank when he sees teller, Isabel Roland, being bundled into a car. He manages to rescue her...

    This was my first Robert Crais novel. I could definitely see this being a TV series -- or movie. To me, there was nothing particularly ground-breaking or suspenseful here. The novel dives right in to the action. The settings and sequences are well done, but I didn't feel like I had any...

    As always, Robert Crais books are worth the wait. This one is a little more Joe Pike focused, so it's a little more serious, but Elvis and Joe are so good working together. Joe kinda gets involved by accident in this one with a bank teller, but as always, the guys protect the innocent ...

    Can't make up my mind which I prefer - strong, silent Joe Pike or wisecracking Elvis Cole - but I love how they take turns in being given prominence. As expected, this did not disappoint. Fast moving, tense,lots of action, plenty of twists. Just great fun and a guaranteed winner f...

    4.5 stars. Great installment in Pike/ Cole series. Lean, to the point, and well written. I sure wished he churned out books faster. Great read. ...

    I liked how Joe got pulled into this one and how once in the middle he was determined to help the girl and do the right thing. As time went on things got messy, so much was going on that came from the past. I felt for bad for Isabel and all that she learned about her family, but by the...

    The Elvis Cole / Joe Pike series is definitely one of my favorites. I love the way they contrast each other, but remain loyal friends and partners. I can't wait for the next one! As a side note... For anyone that hasn't read any of the books in the series, you definitely need to st...

    I wanted so bad to like this book. I?ve read all of his books. I?ve noticed that most of his females are one dimensional but it didn?t ruin my enjoyment of his writing. But I couldn?t make it all the way through the book. There isn?t one likable woman in this book. And they...

    Another great read from Robert Crais. This one, while billed as Elvis Cole #18; Joe Pike #7, is mostly about Pike and his attempts to protect a young woman from kidnappers. Cole is the wingman in this thriller. Pike provides most of the action and Cole provides the procedural search fo...

    Always a thrill to read a Cole, Pike book, Fast paced and filled with high stake odds against the people they help. Great storyline as always. ...
