    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...

    Absolutely fabulous! 10 of 10 stars! ...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    They say that the first step in dealing with an addiction is admitting that it exists. I am now and have, for some time, been addicted to Crais' Elvis Cole and Joe Pike books. I truly enjoy Cole's smartass side as well as his ability to ferret out the most obscure relationships as well...

    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...

    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...

    #18 in the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series. This 2019 series entry by author Robert Crais certainly does the series proud. Joe starts off with some straightforward heavy lifting as he rescues a bank teller from a pair of kidnappers and turns them over (slightly the worse for wear) to the po...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Robert Crais just keeps getting better. A Dangerous Man is lightning paced, with intriguing detective work, crisp dialogue and action that only Joe Pike can deliver. I couldn't put this book down. From twenty something besties and gas station clerks, to Federal Marshals and cops, from ...

    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 ...

    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 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 ...

    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 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...

    They say that the first step in dealing with an addiction is admitting that it exists. I am now and have, for some time, been addicted to Crais' Elvis Cole and Joe Pike books. I truly enjoy Cole's smartass side as well as his ability to ferret out the most obscure relationships as well...

    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...

    Absolutely fabulous! 10 of 10 stars! ...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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! ...

    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...

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

    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. ...

    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 ...

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

    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...

    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...

    They say that the first step in dealing with an addiction is admitting that it exists. I am now and have, for some time, been addicted to Crais' Elvis Cole and Joe Pike books. I truly enjoy Cole's smartass side as well as his ability to ferret out the most obscure relationships as well...

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

    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...

    ? ? ? ? 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...

    This series never disappoints. ...

    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...

    #18 in the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series. This 2019 series entry by author Robert Crais certainly does the series proud. Joe starts off with some straightforward heavy lifting as he rescues a bank teller from a pair of kidnappers and turns them over (slightly the worse for wear) to the po...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Absolutely fabulous! 10 of 10 stars! ...

    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. ...

    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 ...

    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...

    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...

    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 ...

    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...

    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! ...

    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...

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

    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. ...

    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 ...
