I was lucky enough to discover Robert
Crais with his second novel, Stalking
the Angel [ his first was
Monkey's Raincoat which
introduced detectives Elvis Cole
and Joe Pike.] The series was
modern, well written and reminded me
of an updated version of Robert B.
Parker's Spenser and Hawk
[well actually, an updated Spenser
and Sylvester Stallone's Cobra].
Crais is one of the few authors
whose work I buy in hardcover as soon
as it's published. With my time being
what it is, I just got around to reading
latest [which is now out in paperback].
Although not an Elvis Cole novel,
it is without a doubt my favorite work
by Crais [who as I've said is
always very good].
The cool thing about this novel is
that the suspense starts on page one
and continues to build and build and
build. The book has received outstanding
reviews from critics and fans alike.
Bruce Willis has optioned the
book for a movie [which would be an
excellent vehicle for him]!
So what are you waiting for? Click
to order the paperback... and watch
for Elvis and Joe Pike
to return soon in Crais'
