It took me awhile to warm up to Elvis, but by the end I'd connected with his sarcasm and detachment. This was my first Robert Crais and there will be more.

Regular mystery readers will figure out the main plot early and may be impatient for the characters to catch up. Once they do (3/4 of the way through) the suspense does ratchet up and the characters take on deeper dimensions. Nice for a light, fast read. Similar to Linwood Barclay's stuff, but better written.

The woman stood in the far corner of the dimly lit room, hiding in the shadows like a fish in gray water. She was small, round, and dumpy. The fringed leather jacket probably made her seem rounder, but she'd never been a looker. She reminded Mr Rollins of an overripe peach, and the peach was clearly afraid.

This was just an OK entry in this series. Pike was underused. A lot of strings and not un-knotted satisfactorily. Still, gotta like the characters.
