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 where he is served by the young teller, Isabel 'Izzy' Roland. When Izzy leaves for an early lunch break, Joe is outside and just happens to see her being abducted by two men who bundle her in a car and take off.

It' 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.

It's Izzy's lucky day, for Joe does what he has to do, and the two kidnappers have not a hope in hell as he rescues her.

The men are arrested by the local police, but go on to make bail. A terrified Izzy contacts Joe, at which point it becomes clear that Joe is going to take on the mantle of her protector.

As Izzy disappears after seeing a suspicious SUV outside her home, Joe calls in his best friend and business partner, Elvis to investigate.

Soon it becomes apparent there is a local crime crew and arrivals from out of state have a malign interest in getting hold of Izzy, but why?

Izzy seems a straight forward, normal young woman, whose parents have died and with little in the way of any background or reasons for why she should suddenly have become a high value target for criminals.

Connections begin to emerge with the torture and killing of a retired US Marshall earlier, a man by the name of Ted Kemps, a long time presence in Izzy's family life and who she refers to as an 'uncle'.

With the US Marshall Service intent on hunting down Kemps killer, Joe and Elvis find themselves in a case that involves a long ago pharmaceutical trial for fraud, whistleblowers, the Witness Protection Programme and a powerful force seeking vengeance at any cost.

John Chen, the usual ambitious forensic guy that Pike turns to, finds his career prospects taking a distinct downturn after helping Joe, but Joe being Joe is not going to let Chen's career go down the pan.

Crais masterfully showcases his ability to write fast paced, tense and compulsive crime reads with this short but well crafted story.

His characterisation is pin sharp, I particularly loved Izzy and her bestie, the marvellously exuberant Carly, their relationship was a joy to observe.

I am always going to read any addition to this wonderful series, i will take any opportunity to return to LA and dip into the action packed lives of Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

This is for fans of this series and anyone who loves well written and tense crime thrillers. View all 19 comments.

Jul 14, David Putnam rated it it was amazing. A Dangerous Man is no exception. This book is pure entertainment.

Excellent craftsmanship. The book has a thriller construction that runs very fast. What really works in Crais books is how he quickly he sets his conflict and establishes a contract with For me, Crais is up there, one of the heavies, like John Sanford, Michael Connelly, Lee Child, and others.

All the scenes are short and to the point. He sets up his transitions so well you have to turn the page to see what happens next. This is a Joe Pike novel with Elvis Cole as a tag-along.

Pike is taciturn and knows how to take care of business. I would like to see another Elvis Cole book with just his point of view. This story opens with a Damsel in distress and Joe Pike as the knight.

There is a secondary plot line that gives relief to the main plot line and involves a reoccurring character named Chen that is done well. View all 8 comments.

Oct 08, carol. Shelves: thriller. It's kind of creepy. I bet most of the 'taken' are females, too , except that we skip that book's twist. On a related note, it seems that Crais might be succumbing to what I consider the Parker Phenomenon; ie.

Along with scene and word simplification comes greater white space. What do I mean? This one is broken into sections, with a face plate to each section, and each section broken into short chapters.

Overall, just not the same caliber as L. Requiem or even Chasing Darkness. Faster than Ever! Finish Your Book in Record Time!

Crais thankfully avoided a couple of the tropes he pulled on in prior books, so that adds an feeling of difference.

Besides, it is always nice to witness Joe be an agent of retribution, or vengeance, or something like that. Action-movie version. I noted some vaguely uncomfortable bits in dialogue and texting between two twenty-something single women, that felt vaguely … weird.

Did Crais sub this out to someone in the office? It feels incongruent. Again, just not up to earlier caliber. The mom's getting this one in large-print, so we'll see what she thinks.

It opens when Pike makes a routine trip to the bank. As he leaves, he sees two men abduct Isabel Roland, the young teller who has just assisted him, as she walks out of the bank headed to lunch.

Naturally, Pike gives chase and rescues Izzy. The two kidnappers are arrested and briefly jailed, but no sooner are they out than they are found murdered.

Pike will be questioned about this but manages to convince the police, at least for the moment, that he was not involved in the killings. Meanwhile, poor Isabel disappears, and it quickly becomes apparent that she's been kidnapped again.

The original kidnappers are dead and so there's obviously a lot going on beneath the surface here. Why would this young bank teller be a target for a group of desperate criminals?

Pike calls on Elvis who puts his detective skills to work trying to figure out why anyone would be after Izzy while Joe attempts to rescue her again.

And, as often happens in these books, things are going to get pretty bloody and violent before justice is served, Elvis and Joe-style. This was a fairly light, quick read that seemed to be missing some of the heft and complexity of earlier books in the series.

The plot is pretty straightforward and there's plenty of action--an enjoyable read, but in my view, not one of the better books in a long-running series.

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 Just get it.

View all 6 comments. 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 superb. A quick and easy read with lots of action and wit.

What's not to like? Highly recommended. His laconic style and tough man stance — Mitch Rapp in civilian clothing - felt a little stereotypical to me.

So begins a series of events which is to lead Pike down a convoluted path and to the discovery an unexpected history that has led to a perilous present for Izzy.

This is very much a Joe Pike tale. His menacing, focused presence is all over this story. Yes, Elvis appears eventually, but his is very much a bit-part presence.

But I surprised myself by quickly warming to Joe. And he cares. Joe, I learned, has depth. But I did find myself routing for Isobel, though I found her to be a little vacuous, her character somewhat under developed.

Pike wasn't looking to save someone's life on the day he left the bank. While out running errands Pike witnesses and then interrupts the kidnapping of a bank teller named Izzy.

Of course, this being a Crais novel Pike's at-first coincidental involvement opens up a entire can of worms but in a good way, so to speak for the young lady.

Pike immediately intuits that it was no mere sexual assault attempt, but a specifically targeted abduction by an organized and prepared squad of hired goons.

Pike calls in Cole to assist in guarding Izzy, and soon the main characters are mired in an increasingly perilous situation concerning an investigation into the disappearance and murder of a U.

The book was classic Crais - mixing action, suspense, and mystery. View 2 comments. Aug 04, Richard rated it really liked it Shelves: thriller , arc , crime.

Whereas the last one I read seemed to focus more on Elvis Cole, this one seems to be more based around Joe Pike. They both have plenty to do in the book but he came across more as the protagonist here.

He differs to Elvis in that he's more the silent type and not as wisecracking 7. He differs to Elvis in that he's more the silent type and not as wisecracking as Elvis but together they work well.

The plot was interesting without ever being a thriller that I couldn't put down. The action comes early doors and doesn't really stop throughout.

The characters are pretty standard once you get past the main few but it was enjoyable and that is the main thing I need when I pick this type of book up.

I need to read this series from the beginning and know I will when I get chance as there is so much I like here that I'd be foolish not to.

A good thriller all round and I'm glad I took a chance on this series. I received a copy for review from NetGalley View all 9 comments.

Aug 08, Kathi Defranc rated it it was amazing. 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 parents part in this scheme.

But the old man has found her, after so long chasing her Mom, and is determined to get her, hiring men who will fight,torture and steal to get their way..

Isabel works at a bank, a teller Pike has just visited and is still outside in his jeep, when he notes her exiting the bank. A well-dressed man approaches her then quickly pushes her into his car and the driver takes off!

He wouldn't be Joe Pike if he didn't follow and take matters into his own hands This is the start to an explosive run to keep Isabel safe, of course Elvis Cole joins up and John Chen helps with forensics to his own detriment when he is fired for taking prints off a car in a case he is not assigned!

A fabulous,fast-paced read that all will love, as Pike fixes things for everyone he holds dear. Oct 24, Kathleen rated it it was ok.

Joe proves to be a very dangerous man indeed. He just happened to be in the right place at the right time when Isabel Roland, a friendly bank teller, is kidnapped as she leaves the bank.

Pike foils that kidnap attempt, but she is abducted again the next day. Soon, Joe pulls in Elvis Cole to help him find Isabel.

Is that really justice? Sep 13, Mark Baker rated it really liked it Shelves: , mystery. 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 opportunity, or was she a target?

Is she safe? Why would someone target her? This book takes off in some unexpected places, and author Robert Crais uses multiple viewpoints well to hook us as events unfold.

This is a thriller that kept me glued the entire time. Most of the new characters are wonderful and fully developed, but a few very minor characters are very annoying.

Read my full review at Carstairs Considers. Aug 06, Judy Lesley rated it liked it Shelves: favorite-author , series , american , private-investigator.

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 pages and yet I read it in less than 12 hours with all kinds of interruptions from workmen in my house for about four hours.

And I'm a very slow reader. There just isn't a lot of story here to latch on to. Not when compared to other, older books in the series.

Joe Pike is one of my favorite fictional characters but I don't thi I consider myself a Robert Crais fan, but even I have to admit this is a pretty lightweight addition to the series.

Joe Pike is one of my favorite fictional characters but I don't think Isabel Roland was a good pairing for Joe to be dealing with.

I kept expecting him to just walk off the case and leave her to her giggling, squealing, texting self.

The contrast between the two of them was too great for me to accept. The criminals were a little bit summer stock, but the US Marshalls were an interesting group.

So I enjoyed the book overall, but mainly because I'm so invested in these characters, not because this one will ever be considered a favorite read.

View all 12 comments. Isabel Rowland has no idea what they could want from her, and the police put it down to a random attack, but when she disappears again, Joe asks Elvis for help.

Finding links to the torture and murder of a US Marshall agent weeks earlier, they discover that Isabel is not who she thinks she is, and some very dangerous men will do whatever it takes to learn her secret.

I will therefore try and keep audiobook thrillers for long car journeys in future.

I will therefore try and keep audiobook thrillers for long car journeys in future. My biggest beef with the audiobook format was the narrator, Luke Daniels.

I found Isabel a fairly feeble heroine and was frustrated by her frequent stupid actions, and creeped out by her and her something friends lusting after Pike, who has got to be over 60 by now.

As most readers know by now, John is the intrepid sports-car driving L. Izzy has an unfortunate tendency of getting kidnapped.

Why, why is this happening? John, using the considerable smarts and skills at his disposal links these abductions to the murder of a U.

Marshal and kabloom! We are off to the races. Crais writes a fine thriller, and like the other books in this series there are thrills, chills, and even a hint of romance but not alas for our thin-limbed John Chen as fate it seems will always thwart his amorous attempts to share the multitude of love that burbles in his heart like a pot of chili that has just reached boiling.

View all 3 comments. Aug 09, Jennifer Taw rated it it was ok. 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 trademark qualities especially good descriptions of place. I remember Crais's earlier books being richer, more descriptive, deeper; this one seems like a carbon-copy where only the outlines remain.

Maybe it's becaus It's a quick, pithy read. Maybe it's because it's a Joe Pike book, and it's taken on his flat simplicity.

Maybe I read the earlier books with a different set of expectations. Whatever it is, it feels like the two most recent books are more acts of erasure than evolution, so I'll take a break from Crais's new books, at least for a while, to preserve in my mind the vivid world and characters he created in the early ones.

Loved this one! In this latest installment, Joe Pike is minding his own business on a beautiful Southern California day when he goes to the bank. Being Joe Pike, he leaps into action, rescues her, and the men are arrested.

Should be settled, right? The chapters in this book rotate among the main characters, including Joe Pike, Elvis Cole, law enforcement types, and the bad guys.

The rain slowed to a dying drizzle. Pike turned west on the Pacific Coast Highway, and followed the black edge of the ocean.

The blond man filled the silence. Or have we? Frankly, the relationship between Joe and Izzy is pretty warm and fuzzy, and I will not be surprised if we meet Izzy again in a future book in this series.

But whether Joe will become warmer and fuzzier or whether his action in the final chapter which may shock some readers represents the man he has become or maybe always has been?

Five stars. Sep 08, Kevin Schaeffer rated it it was amazing. View all 7 comments. Aug 09, Ed rated it really liked it.

Joe Pike and Elvis Cole are always welcome characters; I hate for them to leave when the book is done. Tension and action filled.

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. Apr 19, Tim rated it really liked it Shelves: crais , cole-pike. Joe Pike is a man with a special skill set from a past military career that has made him well known to those in special forces, or those in need of contractors specializing in the use of those skills, and Elvis is his closest friend who knows more about him than anyone else.

Elvis is a private investigator and career smart-ass who is the face of their investigation agency, with Joe being a silent partner in more ways than one.

Instincts that Joe has developed over his lifetime tell him that there is more to the story than meets the eye, and he takes an interest in seeing the young lady protected from further harm.

Will the pair be able to protect the woman and learn the principle player s responsible for the attack and abduction to ensure her safety, and how much danger will they be in themselves as they involve themselves in the investigation?

Solid action and the interplay between Elvis and Joe make this another enjoyable entry in the series, and is typical of the qualities that attract me to all of the books featuring the unlikely pair.

Joe Pike goes to the bank. A teller has a bit of a crush on him. This is a common thing for ole Joe. The teller is kidnapped on her lunch break, but Joe foils the abduction.

From there, Joe and Elvis Cole begin investigating and find a tangled knot of witness protection, whistle blowing, and treasure hunting. Great stuff.

Lots of tension, lots of action, and some memorable moments. Aug 18, Steve rated it it was amazing. 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 and take care of the bad guys.

Sep 28, Danielle Tremblay rated it it was amazing Shelves: en-ai-un , police-et-investigation , thriller. I was so happy to discover another novel by one of my favorite PI novels authors.

And if I had to choose between Elvis and Pike the two protagonists of many of Crais's novels the one I prefer, I would say Pike, the big-hearted badass.

But he and Elvis, the funny private investigator, always make a good duet with the rearguard help of their friend Chen.

And this novel focuses on Pike's yippee! You can't go wrong if you like private detective stories by reading one of Crais' novels.

He's one of the great authors in this genre and, as far as I'm concerned, he may be THE best. If you've never read one of his novels, start with the first of the long series and keep reading.

Lucky you! You'll have fun for a long time. Oct 14, Melliott rated it really liked it Shelves: mystery , suspense.

This series, like any other long-running one based on the same people in the same city, has had its ups and downs. There have been books I couldn't put down for 48 hours straight, and others I could barely make it through.

I liked this one, for the very reason that a few other people cited for disliking it—it was straightforward. There have been a few of these that got so complex and brought in so many extraneous people and details that it spoiled the lead, which for me is always the partnership This series, like any other long-running one based on the same people in the same city, has had its ups and downs.

There have been a few of these that got so complex and brought in so many extraneous people and details that it spoiled the lead, which for me is always the partnership between Elvis Cole and Joe Pike, and how they have developed such synchronicity, over their long association, in how they work together and complement one another's skills.

The initial encounter in this one was, as I said, straightforward—nobody calling the office and telling a long and complex tale. Joe Pike goes to the bank, and Isabelle is the teller who waits on him.

Her boss asks her to take an early lunch, so she leaves the bank only minutes after Joe, who is still on the street by his car.

A couple of guys in an SUV pull over next to her on the curb; one engages her in conversation, and before she knows it, she's being forced into the car and abducted.

Joe spots the look of panic on her face, and does what Joe does—he follows, he outwits, and he rescues, wreaking a little havoc on the kidnappers in the process and then turning them over to the police.

From this point on, it does grow a little more complicated, because the power behind the kidnappers redoubles efforts to get hold of Isabelle.

When she calls Joe in a panic because SUVs have been trolling her street, Joe appoints himself her bodyguard but at this point also decides it's time to pull in both John Chen medical examiner to run some fingerprints, and friend Elvis to use his P.

It's a believable story, well told, and holds your interest start to finish. Readers also enjoyed. About Robert Crais. Robert Crais.
