Got this one on my TBR stack. Can't wait to get to it. I love Crais.


My problem is Robert Crais is like Lays Potato Chips. You can't have just one! I've read one after another and I'm (sadly) caught up. I don't know what I'll do without my Elvis Cole and Joe Pike fix!

I loved LA REQUIEM, but thought LAST DETECTIVE and FORGOTTEN MAN were just okay. Haven't read WATCHMAN or this one yet, but I hear they're better.

Crais is such a good writer, but hasn't written a MYSTIC RIVER type novel that I think he's capable of doing.

I, too, thought LAST DETECTIVE and FORGOTTEN MAN were just okay. But THE WATCHMAN is excellent and CHASING DARKNESS is quite good as well. Both are well worth reading.
