Product Description


Teeth-rattlingly good -- Alex Gorden Evening Telegraph (Peterborough) 20120317

Product Description

After Joe Pike saves a man's life, the man's family seems oddly resentful. Maybe because they're not who they seem to be-including the seductive Dru. But it's more than a charade-it's a trap. And Pike's already been hooked...

5.0 out of 5 stars The Sentry April 11 2011
By L. D. Godfrey TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
The Sentry was my fourth Robert Crais novel and I have been completely charmed by his characters Joe Pike and Elvis Cole, a pair of private investigators and best buds.These two seem like an unlikely pair,you have Elvis Cole, the friendly wise cracking, class clown type and then there is Joe Pike, more a man of action than words. These guys are true heroes, they may walk away from a fight bruised and a little worse for wear but like the old joke goes, you should see the other guys.
Crais has what I call a clean writing style, he doesn't take fifteen words to describe something when six will do. He keeps the story moving and doesn't allow your attention or interest to lag. I enjoyed `The Sentry' as well as the other three novels featuring Joe Pike and Elvis Cole and I am looking forward to more.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joe Pike is lonely Feb. 15 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The Sentry, like other Joe Pike books, contains a lot of action and heroic measures as Joe continues to help the less fortunate and downtrodden simply because he was in the wrong place at the right time. What's different here, though, is that the people he helps aren't really good guys and he falls for a woman who knows how to play him. She pushes all his buttons and he fell hard. And even when he learns the truth, he can't back away from doing what he considers the right thing. This story shows us that Joe has a human side - he is vulnerable and lonely, looking at his life and wondering where a special someone could fit in. In a parallel story, we see that Elvis had that life but it fell apart because of his lifestyle, and Joe has got to be wondering if it's even leave this behind. Chances are it's not, because Joe has never been one to just walk away from injustice but like the arrows on his shoulders, he's looking forward to the next chapter. It's a great story - I'm listening to it again, and I'd recommend it to anyone who loves action, a bit of romance, good triumphing over evil, and friendship that endures no matter what.

Loved this thrilling mystery! Nothing is ever what it seems to be when Joe comes to the rescue of a sandwich shop owner and uncovers a hornet's nest. Great to see Joe and Cole working together.
