    " The author doesn't seem to weave a very interesting tale. Predictable, pedantic, played-out. "

    " I really liked the fact that this story wasn't wrapped up with a neat bow. "

    " Gave up after 2nd cd ....I dont think the narration helped .but I found it irritating and not enough going on ...might go back to it "

    " I like the ambiguity in the young girl's behavior(Stalking the Angel??) and reiterate that I have found two more likable (but yes, violent) protagonists. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leah | 1/26/2014

    " I listen to the book on my MP3 player. The narrator makes the book. Thoroughly enjoyed it. "

    " Part of my task to fill in books I missed from series I read in the past. This is an early Elvis Cole book. I like the character he evolved into in the later books much better. Still the same basic guy but in the later ones he seems more like a real person. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jessica | 12/29/2013

    " Not as strong as the series opener - the characters feel a little wooden here, which is a struggle. That said, I do appreciate the choices Crais made around Mimi, as they feel pretty true-to-life for the setup he gave her. "

    " 2 1/2 stars, just alright, nothing great "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jeff | 10/27/2013

    " Robert Crais' Elvis Coles novels are one of my guilty pleasures. I love the quirkiness of Elvis (and his smart-aleck remrks and thoughts). Mind-candy? You betcha! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeffrey Hammerhead | 9/12/2013

    " This was my first Elvis Cole novel. The book blurb said "sex and madness", which it was, plus a very suspenseful story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Natalya | 2/21/2013

    " This was my first introduction to Elvis Cole who in the first half of the book greatly annoyed me for his flippancy, but midway he suddenly developed a depth of character and the plot got really good and certainly unexpected. A fun beach read, up there with Evanovich and Parker. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tom | 1/5/2012

    " This is a decent outing for Elvis Cole. Sometimes it feels like Spenser wannabe, so I think it's taking time for Crais to make him his own. The part about the sexual abuse is very old school - you can tell this was written in the 80s. But a very fast read, solid dialogue. "

    " First time reader of Robert Crais. I also chuckled many times at the Elvis character and really enjoy the Joe character. This plot held my interest and finished the book in a day. Does have a similar feel of Robert Parker's Spencer & Hawk which of which I am a huge fan. On to the next one. "

    " First time i read a Robert Crais book but it was good!! Now i am in love with Elvis Cole (along with everyone else XD) "

    " Much better 2nd Elvis Cole, better plot and some good character building of Elvis Cole. This one has convinced me to get hold of subsequent novels in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken Beck | 11/20/2010

    " Sometimes I wonder how Elvis Cole and Joe Pike can kill so many people (albeit that they are all bad guys) and not be put on trial???? Another good read of good versus bad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 11/2/2010

    " As always Crais writes a good entertaining story! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Meaghan | 6/11/2010

    " Slow start, but plenty of lovely description and twists. His observations on Los Angeles remind me of Jonathan Kellerman's Alex Delaware mysteries and Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch mysteries. "
