Elvis Cole, wisecracking private eye, finds himself embroiled in a controversial LA murder case. A wealthy WASP entrepreneur appears to have murdered his wife. A hot-shot defense attorney takes the case and hires Elvis to find proof that the L.A. detective - rumored to be dirty - fooled around with the evidence. But as Elvis investigates, he becomes more suspicious of the media-loving lawyer than the cops. With sidekick Joe Pike and girlfriend Lucy Chenier in tow, Elvis carries the day.

Listener Opinions

    " Good...spin on attorneys, celebrity and the justice system. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Beverly | 1/25/2014

    " Not as good as the others in this series that I've read. The story is too slow and convoluted; it dissipates the suspense somewhat. Elvis investigates a murder for a famous defense lawyer on behalf of his client. The defense accuses a police detective of planting evidence to incriminate his innocent client. Elvis uncovers a lot of dirty dealings. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mo Shah | 1/18/2014

    " Not the strongest one in the series. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yeva | 1/10/2014

    " The more I read Mr. Crais's books, the more I enjoy them. Sunset Express was the sort of book that makes you mad--mad at rich bitch lawyers who take advantage of their position and the public's devotion--mad at how the media vilifies cops & mad at how some police officers put the blame for their misconduct onto others--and it made you pissed at celebrities who think they can get away with anything. Yep, it was a great book for a mad on! Then, there's Elvis and Pike and they take the mad stuff and make it a great time taking care of the bad guys. I highly recommend this story. Great work, Mr. Crais! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 12/27/2013

    " I started reading Robert Crais this past summer on the recommendation of another reader. I enjoyed the first and started working my way through the series. As per his website, the author recommended starting with L.A.Requiem rather than the earlier ones. Now I am working my way from the beginning with Elvis Cole. What a great character! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jon | 11/27/2013

    " One of my favorites with Cole. One part legal thriller, one part police procedural with a good mystery and romance thrown in. "

    " Don't care for Robert Crais' earlier books, his later books are so much better it unbelievable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Deb | 10/27/2013

    " Robert Crais's series featuring LA detective Elvis Cole is always entertaining and a quick read. Elvis is a quirky, honest, all-around-good-guy who solves mysteries the old-fashioned way, by interviewing witnesses and suspects until he gets answers that make sense to him. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jay | 10/9/2013

    " A good one not one of the better ones but it was good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 10/9/2013

    " It was another fun read. I liked how the book expressed the glamorous side of Hollywood and being a private eye. Also that when the law fails that there is always free speech "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Leon Aldrich | 10/2/2013

    " Couldn't sleep last night, tossing and turning. To make matters worse, I picked up Sunset Express giving my night hyperactivity something to focus on. Hours later. Done. Now I can't get back to sleep. Damn Crais! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 4/24/2013

    " I'm an unabashed fan or Crais's Elvis Cole/Joe Pike novels. This isn't the best of the lot but it's still a fun read. Check out the series if you haven't and you have any interest in modern detective fiction; I've enjoyed pretty much every book in the series. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Chris | 4/11/2012

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Arthur | 11/10/2011

    " Not Crais's best work, bad guy is pretty obvious, too much mooning over his girlfriend. He should have figured out how to add cellphones, which were around at the time. The computer bit shows that he knew almost nothing about them in 1996. Nice ending. "
