I am not so into this much violence, but I still really like the books.
To me, finding new authors is one of the great pleasures of reading. This is a good tale of suspense highlighting how an under-handed scheme can backfire. The Audible description of this story is good. The real thick of this story revolves around the question: At what lengths will a person go to in order to get what they want? Be careful of the scheme you concoct for it can become your worst nightmare! This is an enjoyable story. I found no fault with the narrator.

- The Last Detective (Elvis Cole and Joe Pike, book 9) by Robert Crais.
James Daniels brings humor and down to earth emotion to his characters. They have flaws but they continue to struggle onward. Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry? As soon as I finished this book, I looked for the next one in the series with the same author! I really enjoy the way Joe's character plays off Elvis's.
The Last Detective (Elvis Cole, #9) by Robert Crais
Since I read the first book in this series I cannot get enough of Elvis and Joe. The books are gripping from start to finish. Crais needs to start turning them out because I'm almost at the end of the series. I give these 5 stars. The story and narration were exceptional. After I read this book I downloaded all of Robert Crais' books.
Highly recommended. One of my favorites. What did you like best about this story? Elvis Cole's past and present collide.
The Last Detective (Elvis Cole and Joe Pike Series #9)
James Daniels fits Elvis Cole and he is good at the female and kids voice. Wondering why Elvis did not call Pike right away. Performance was very well done. Story was good but spoiler chapter 25 dragged a bit with too much detail for so much information and extreme action. Story line itself is very good. This book and L.

- The Last Detective;
Requiem really stepped up the quality from the preceding books in the series. Cole only allowed himself to be ambushed once and only failed to incapacitate one defeated bad guy before moving on and leaving him to rejoin the action. A monster peeve of mine is when allegedly bright characters knock out a bad guy and then just keep going as if unconsciousness lasts for more than a few seconds or minutes. Then the unthinkable happens.
While Lucy is away on business and her ten-year-old son Ben is staying with Elvis, the boy vanishes without a trace. When the kidnappers call, it's not for ransom, but for a promise to punish Cole for past sins he claims he didn't commit. With the LAPD wrestling over the case, and the boy's estranged father attempting to take control of the investigation, Cole vows to find Ben first. But Cole's partner, Joe Pike, knows more about this case than he has said. Pike lives in a world where dangerous men commit crimes beyond all reckoning.
Now, one of those men is alive and well in L.
