As usual, this book came up to my full expectations. t has all the ingredients that make for a great read, good guys, extremely bad guys, love, and, of course, the interactions of Cole and Pike. A masterfully planned story with lots of action.

Although I am a HUGE Elvis Cole fan, I found this book just a little more difficult to really get into. For that reason I'm only giving it three stars - I enjoyed it, don't get me wrong, it just wasn't quite as good as some of the other books in the series. The snappy dialogue from Elvis is still evident and the humour is constant, as usual, it just seemed to take a while for something to happen.
Elvis is hired by a young woman whose fiancé is a plainclothes police officer and she suspects that he may be getting himself into some sort of trouble. At first it seems that the young policeman is cheating on his girlfriend, but then it slowly becomes clear that something more sinister is happening. With the help of the ultra-capable Joe Pike, Elvis finds himself caught between the LAPD and a street gang who are intent on stopping him.
Like I implied earlier, Elvis Cole is Elvis Cole and ya gotta love him. It just didn't grab me the way the others have and I didn't race through it like I did the others.

In this Elvis Cole--Joe Pike story, Crais hits the mark again,
and his two heros work as one in solving some problems/mysteries
involving an elite squad of the LAPD, and their mysterious activities after the bright but naive girl friend of one of the
cops consults Elvis.
Just as soon as his new client leaves, a couple of LAPD cops
come into his office and threaten him and pester him to leave
the case alone, but Elvis isn't the kind of guy to easily scare
off. Although he isn't as quiet as his partner, Pike, he is
almost as fearless, and together they form a team that is almost
unbeatable.
The action moves along quickly and smoothly, and the reader
who pays attention feels he is in L.A., moving with the
action.

Yet agian, Robert Crais puts forth an excellent novel starring the illustrious Elvis Cole and his dark partner Joe Pike. Elvis is asked to investigate an L.A. Police Officer, Mark Thurman, a member of a special division that investigates gang activity. What Elvis finds involves a Rodney King type incident and the cover-up that follows. As Elvis peels away the layers of the story, things are more complicated than they seem. Very readable and very quick story.

If you have yet to begin the marvelous Elvis Cole series by Robert Crais, you've got a great treat ahead of you! Few series get off to a stronger start than Mr. Crais did with The Monkey's Raincoat, which won both the Anthony and Macavity awards for best novel while being nominated for the Edgar and Shamus awards as well. Stalking the Angel followed powerfully with classic noir style of the 1930s hard-boiled detective up against evil moderated with wise cracks. Lullaby Town brought Hollywood-oriented detective fiction into the 1990s with style and grace. And the books just keep getting better from there in their characterizations, action, story-telling and excitement.
Elvis Cole is the star attraction, the co-owner of The Elvis Cole Detective Agency. He's now 39, ex-Army, served in Vietnam, ex-security guard, has two years of college, learned to be a detective by working under George Feider, a licensed P.I. for over 40 years, does martial arts as enthusiastically as most people do lunch, and is fearless but not foolish. He's out to right the wrongs of the world as much as he is to earn a living. Elvis has a thing for Disney characters (including a Pinocchio clock), kids, cats, scared clients and rapid fire repartee. He drives a Jamaica yellow 1966 Corvette Stingray convertible, and usually carries a Dan Wesson .38 Special.
His main foil is partner, Joe Pike, an ex-Marine, ex-cop who moves quietly and mysteriously wearing shades even in the dark . . . when he's not scaring the bad guys with the red arrows tattooed on his deltoids, which are usually bare in sleeveless shirts. Although he's got an office with Elvis, Pike spends all of his time at his gun shop when not routing the bad guys with martial arts while carrying and often using enough firepower to stop a tank.

Elvis Cole's humor is a little strained in this one, and his devil-may-care attitudes about jail, his own invincibility, and his dewy eyed views of all veterans, marines, ingénues and underprivileged youth get a mite tiresome. Thank the Lord for Joe Pike, who remains cynical and enigmatic.
A pretty young lady radiating wholesomeness (is there any other kind?) wants to hire Elvis to see why her fiancé, an LAPD copy, has been acting so distant toward her lately. Elvis finds her a quick, not too pleasant answer and the case is closed. Right? Not quite, or the story would end on page 22. Elvis has sparked the interest of a whole squad of LAPD plus some heavy-duty gangbangers. The action picks up; the escapades are just short of unbelievable while Elvis and Joe are on everyone's Most Wanted List.
Mr. Crais does some excellent description of South Central LA, bringing the mean streets to life and shows us it isn't just one vast killing ground. The action is fast, it's highly readable, but not on a par with other works by Robert Crais.
