    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...

    Here's the scoop: A Dangerous Man is distressingly like Taken (Cole/Pike book #15) (as an aside, you know how many books have the title 'Taken'? It's kind of creepy. I bet most of the 'taken' are females, too), except that we skip that book's twist. It also reads more coherently; t...

    Absolutely fabulous! 10 of 10 stars! ...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. Non-Over-Wrought Fiction: "A Dangerous Man" by Robert Crais Crime can be just as much 'literary' fiction as anything else. Granted that much is little different from watching the telly but people get high falutin...

    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...

    I think this is the fifth or sixth Elvis Cole/Joe Pike novel I?ve read. I?m jumping around the series in pretty random order (I?ve read the first, the most recent and a few in between) and enjoyed them enough to prompt me to pre-order an audio copy of this latest release. The Sou...

    Pike wasn't looking to save someone's life on the day he left the bank . . . -- page 33 Another in the long and excellently dependable line - averaging one about every other year since 1987 - of Crais' L.A.-set crime-thriller series featuring private eye Elvis Cole, A Dangerous Man ...

    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...

    This is Crais? 7th offering featuring Joe Pike, and the 18th featuring Elvis Cole. Joe proves to be a very dangerous man indeed. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time when Isabel Roland, a friendly bank teller, is kidnapped as she leaves the bank. Pike foils tha...

    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 ...

    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...

    Robert Crais?s novel A dangerous Man is the newest addition to his stellar series of John Chen mystery novels. As most readers know by now, John is the intrepid sports-car driving L.A. medical examiner who despite sleuthing in a hostile work environment, suffering an extraordinarily ...

    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...

    Joe Pike?s trip to the bank for a routine deposit ends when he witnesses two men try to kidnap his teller, Isabel Roland. Joe being Joe, he jumps into action and rescues her. However, when the kidnappers are released from jail, they are both murdered. Was kidnapping Isabel a crime of...

    Excellent! ...

    A thrill a minute from page one! Robert Crais continues his string of winners with Joe Pike and Elvis Cole! Loved this one! ...

    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 ...

    This is really a 2.5 star book. The extra half star is for nostalgia's sake, as I have been reading this series since Monkee's Raincoat first came out. (OMG, that's 30+ years!) However, this entry, while entertaining as a mystery, was other-wise bland. There was a bit of clever word...

    A thrill a minute from page one! Robert Crais continues his string of winners with Joe Pike and Elvis Cole! Loved this one! ...

    This series, like any other long-running one based on the same people in the same city, has had its ups and downs. There have been books I couldn't put down for 48 hours straight, and others I could barely make it through. I liked this one, for the very reason that a few other people c...

    Here's the scoop: A Dangerous Man is distressingly like Taken (Cole/Pike book #15) (as an aside, you know how many books have the title 'Taken'? It's kind of creepy. I bet most of the 'taken' are females, too), except that we skip that book's twist. It also reads more coherently; t...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. Non-Over-Wrought Fiction: "A Dangerous Man" by Robert Crais Crime can be just as much 'literary' fiction as anything else. Granted that much is little different from watching the telly but people get high falutin...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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 ...

    Years ago I found a review of Robert Crais?s novels on a website no longer online. One of the reviewers said ?everyone needs a Joe Pike in their life? so I read the first Elvis Cole book and never stopped.....and I agree.....we all could use a Joe Pike in our lives. I love the ma...

    This is really a 2.5 star book. The extra half star is for nostalgia's sake, as I have been reading this series since Monkee's Raincoat first came out. (OMG, that's 30+ years!) However, this entry, while entertaining as a mystery, was other-wise bland. There was a bit of clever word...

    As Joe Pike is leaving his bank, he sees his teller, Isabel (Izzy) Roland, grabbed by two guys and thrown into a car. Joe gives chase and dishes out his special brand of justice (although both guys are still alive when the cops arrive.) Izzy has no idea why she was grabbed, and calls h...

    Partly because this series has had some very strong books in recent memory, this one falls flat. Too many perspectives, too few puzzles, too little Elvis. Better luck next time. ...

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

    Here's the scoop: A Dangerous Man is distressingly like Taken (Cole/Pike book #15) (as an aside, you know how many books have the title 'Taken'? It's kind of creepy. I bet most of the 'taken' are females, too), except that we skip that book's twist. It also reads more coherently; t...

    Absolutely fabulous! 10 of 10 stars! ...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. Non-Over-Wrought Fiction: "A Dangerous Man" by Robert Crais Crime can be just as much 'literary' fiction as anything else. Granted that much is little different from watching the telly but people get high falutin...

    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...

    I think this is the fifth or sixth Elvis Cole/Joe Pike novel I?ve read. I?m jumping around the series in pretty random order (I?ve read the first, the most recent and a few in between) and enjoyed them enough to prompt me to pre-order an audio copy of this latest release. The Sou...

    Pike wasn't looking to save someone's life on the day he left the bank . . . -- page 33 Another in the long and excellently dependable line - averaging one about every other year since 1987 - of Crais' L.A.-set crime-thriller series featuring private eye Elvis Cole, A Dangerous Man ...

    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...

    This is Crais? 7th offering featuring Joe Pike, and the 18th featuring Elvis Cole. Joe proves to be a very dangerous man indeed. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time when Isabel Roland, a friendly bank teller, is kidnapped as she leaves the bank. Pike foils tha...

    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 ...

    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...

    Robert Crais?s novel A dangerous Man is the newest addition to his stellar series of John Chen mystery novels. As most readers know by now, John is the intrepid sports-car driving L.A. medical examiner who despite sleuthing in a hostile work environment, suffering an extraordinarily ...

    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...

    Excellent! ...

    A thrill a minute from page one! Robert Crais continues his string of winners with Joe Pike and Elvis Cole! Loved this one! ...

    This series, like any other long-running one based on the same people in the same city, has had its ups and downs. There have been books I couldn't put down for 48 hours straight, and others I could barely make it through. I liked this one, for the very reason that a few other people c...

    Comfort Food Sitting around with the boys a pitcher of beer and chicken wings with mild sauce. Reads like an hour long tv drama. Fast, furious, and fun. We all have a friend like John Chen. He sure makes life interesting. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    Years ago I found a review of Robert Crais?s novels on a website no longer online. One of the reviewers said ?everyone needs a Joe Pike in their life? so I read the first Elvis Cole book and never stopped.....and I agree.....we all could use a Joe Pike in our lives. I love the ma...

    This is really a 2.5 star book. The extra half star is for nostalgia's sake, as I have been reading this series since Monkee's Raincoat first came out. (OMG, that's 30+ years!) However, this entry, while entertaining as a mystery, was other-wise bland. There was a bit of clever word...

    As Joe Pike is leaving his bank, he sees his teller, Isabel (Izzy) Roland, grabbed by two guys and thrown into a car. Joe gives chase and dishes out his special brand of justice (although both guys are still alive when the cops arrive.) Izzy has no idea why she was grabbed, and calls h...

    Partly because this series has had some very strong books in recent memory, this one falls flat. Too many perspectives, too few puzzles, too little Elvis. Better luck next time. ...

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

    It?s always a pleasure to dip into the latest Robert Crais novel featuring Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. Whereas, in most of the novels, it?s the wisecracking sleuth Elvis who is the lead role, this time it?s the laconic action-man Joe who takes centre stage when he rescues a young wo...

    Another fine action outing for Pike and Cole, who try to protect a bank teller. Throw in US Marshals, witness protection, and a plethora of bad guys and it's a fun machine. ...

    The 18th in the long and excellently dependable series involving PI Elvis Cole and his partner SPEC OPS veteran Joe Pike...You can count on Crais to deliver an "edge of your seat" page-turner with these two...Pike stumbles on a kidnapping of a bank teller and he and Elvis a drawn into ...

    Joe Pike is a dangerous man! After visiting the bank, Joe sees one of the young, friendly tellers get pushed into a SUV. Quickly, Joe disables the driver and his accomplice and recuses the girl. Of course the story does not end here and more Joe Pike and Elvis Cole action continu...

    If you're into stuff like this, you can read the full review. Non-Over-Wrought Fiction: "A Dangerous Man" by Robert Crais Crime can be just as much 'literary' fiction as anything else. Granted that much is little different from watching the telly but people get high falutin...

    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...

    I think this is the fifth or sixth Elvis Cole/Joe Pike novel I?ve read. I?m jumping around the series in pretty random order (I?ve read the first, the most recent and a few in between) and enjoyed them enough to prompt me to pre-order an audio copy of this latest release. The Sou...

    Pike wasn't looking to save someone's life on the day he left the bank . . . -- page 33 Another in the long and excellently dependable line - averaging one about every other year since 1987 - of Crais' L.A.-set crime-thriller series featuring private eye Elvis Cole, A Dangerous Man ...

    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...

    This is Crais? 7th offering featuring Joe Pike, and the 18th featuring Elvis Cole. Joe proves to be a very dangerous man indeed. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time when Isabel Roland, a friendly bank teller, is kidnapped as she leaves the bank. Pike foils tha...

    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 ...

    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...

    Robert Crais?s novel A dangerous Man is the newest addition to his stellar series of John Chen mystery novels. As most readers know by now, John is the intrepid sports-car driving L.A. medical examiner who despite sleuthing in a hostile work environment, suffering an extraordinarily ...

    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...

    Joe Pike?s trip to the bank for a routine deposit ends when he witnesses two men try to kidnap his teller, Isabel Roland. Joe being Joe, he jumps into action and rescues her. However, when the kidnappers are released from jail, they are both murdered. Was kidnapping Isabel a crime of...

    Excellent! ...

    A thrill a minute from page one! Robert Crais continues his string of winners with Joe Pike and Elvis Cole! Loved this one! ...

    This series, like any other long-running one based on the same people in the same city, has had its ups and downs. There have been books I couldn't put down for 48 hours straight, and others I could barely make it through. I liked this one, for the very reason that a few other people c...

    Comfort Food Sitting around with the boys a pitcher of beer and chicken wings with mild sauce. Reads like an hour long tv drama. Fast, furious, and fun. We all have a friend like John Chen. He sure makes life interesting. ...

    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...

    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 ...

    Years ago I found a review of Robert Crais?s novels on a website no longer online. One of the reviewers said ?everyone needs a Joe Pike in their life? so I read the first Elvis Cole book and never stopped.....and I agree.....we all could use a Joe Pike in our lives. I love the ma...

    This is really a 2.5 star book. The extra half star is for nostalgia's sake, as I have been reading this series since Monkee's Raincoat first came out. (OMG, that's 30+ years!) However, this entry, while entertaining as a mystery, was other-wise bland. There was a bit of clever word...

    As Joe Pike is leaving his bank, he sees his teller, Isabel (Izzy) Roland, grabbed by two guys and thrown into a car. Joe gives chase and dishes out his special brand of justice (although both guys are still alive when the cops arrive.) Izzy has no idea why she was grabbed, and calls h...

    Partly because this series has had some very strong books in recent memory, this one falls flat. Too many perspectives, too few puzzles, too little Elvis. Better luck next time. ...

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

    It?s always a pleasure to dip into the latest Robert Crais novel featuring Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. Whereas, in most of the novels, it?s the wisecracking sleuth Elvis who is the lead role, this time it?s the laconic action-man Joe who takes centre stage when he rescues a young wo...
