    EXCERPT: "...these kids leave prints and DNA everywhere." The world slowed when I heard him. I said, " Kids." "They're kids. Three morons." I said it again, just to be sure. "Kids." "Teenagers, young adults, whatever. A female and two males. I'm not saying they're little childre...

    It's been too long since the last Elvis Cole and Joe Pike book came out. For red blooded ?murican(sic) women it's been way too long since the last Joe Pike was published. Just sayin'. This book went far too quickly considering how much I enjoy the smart-ass Elvis Cole and the ummm, s...

    I am a huge fan of Elvis Cole, but The Wanted fell flat for me. I generally love reading about both Elvis and Joe Pike, but I could barely stomach reading about the two ridiculous bad guys ? they were way too over the top for me. I also didn?t feel that Tyson Connor was very believ...

    Rounded up to 4 stars. Elvis Cole is asked by a concerned mother why her son has an extravagant Rolex watch, and the truth is horrifying: he and two friends are involved in a criminal enterprise, and there are two stone-cold killers, posing as cops, after them. Here is the essence of t...

    I want to start out by saying that this is my first Cole/Pike story. I also want to say it wasn't bad - I just...felt bored. Maybe it's my fault. In the bookstore, this was just on a normal shelf - not on a display table or prominently placed or anything, so to say that this cover ...

    Private eye Elvis Cole and his partner, Joe Pike, make a great team - reminiscent of the late Robert B. Parker's Spenser and Hawk. Together, they can take on the world. But when they bump up against a trio of teens who specialize in upscale burglaries, they may have met their match. ...

    What a treat it is to have Elvis Cole and Joe Pike back! When teenager Tyson Connor?s mother Devon calls Elvis, she is afraid her son is selling drugs because he?s suddenly flush with cash and wearing expensive clothes. Initially, Elvis suspects the same thing, but a little more in...

    Many many years ago I stumbled across the first book featuring the funny and enigmatic Elvis Cole, and it was love at first book! I have been a huge fan of the series since, and they are the type of comfort books I turn to when I feel a bit book-jaded. Crais always delivers a solid mys...

    The Elvis Cole detective books are perhaps the most progressive series in the mystery genre today. This is a startling fact when you consider Robert Crais?s The Wanted is the 17th go round with this private investigator and his stoic partner Joe Pike. What makes these books so pionee...

    We all waited forEVER for this book, which was supposed to be out more than a year ago. The problem, is that Crais' stuff is SO good, that I finished the book within 24 hours. Elvis Cole, and Joe Pike are icons, in modern-day crime fiction. The stories are so well-written, with such a ...

    3.5?s for me. I have to admit that I?ve never previously read a Robert Crais book. No particular reason. I think that from being such a creature of habit, I tend to stick with Authors that I already know and love. But thanks to NetGalley, I?ve now had my reading tastes shift t...

    I enjoyed this addition to the Elvis Cole and Joe Pike collection. This one felt a little different because the problems involved three young adults with a total lack of caring for the consequences of the crimes they were committing. Their view of what was fun was painfully innocent. T...

    Almost a perfect story, save the stupidity of a couple characters. 8 of 10 stars ...

    This book hooked me in...This is book 17 in the Elvis Cole series but the first that I have read. It read fine as a stand alone story but there wasn't too much insight into the characters. Elvis is hired to look into how a teenager at high school has suddenly come into large amount...

    ? ? ? ? 1/2 (rounded up) This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- A single mom has worries about the way that her teen-aged son is behaving -- and when you add in flashy clothes, a Rolex, and more money in his pocket than most book bloggers have in their ch...

    For some reason, I have not read a whole lot of Robert Crais' books, which is actually a little odd as I have really liked most the ones that I did read. The same goes for this one with Elvis Cole as the main protagonist and Joe Pike only playing a minor supporting role. Crais sets a...

    Once you start reading this, it'll be hard to stop. I ended up finishing it at 3am, and then I was so sad it was over. One more fantastic ride in a series that I love. ...

    Thank God I finished when I did....I have no fingernails left. Review to follow. ...

    I have been reading the Pike/Elvis saga for years, and continue to enjoy the relationship between the two and the problems they get themselves involved in! Just a fun book to read, with bumbling bad guys, off the wall teenage burglars, and interesting police officers with a little bit ...

    4 and 1 / 2 stars Devon Connor is a single mom who is very worried about what her son Tyson might doing. She calls PI Elvis Cole because she is worried that he has gotten involved in selling drugs. Her proof is all the expensive things he has about the house, including a very expens...

    If you internet search Robert Crais it is interesting to note that he was greatly influenced by the works of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. It you add this piece of information to the fact that he was a writer for some early 80's made for TV series (Hill Street blues, Cagney an...

    Disappointing book #17 in an otherwise entertaining crime fiction series. I thought it read like a 1970's "Made for TV" movie with the pace, prose and complexity of last year's calendar. Where have you gone Elvis and Joe Pike! ...

    ?The Wanted? by Robert Crais is number seventeen in his ?Elvis Cole? series. Even though Elvis and Joe continue from previous books, new readers can jump right into this book without any problem. Devon Connor hires private investigator Elvis Cole to find out how her ?trou...

    4.5 stars because I like this series with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike so much! Private detective Elvis Cole accepts a job from Devon Connor. Her son Tyson has started wearing Rolex watches, designer clothes and flashing loads of cash and she's afraid he is selling drugs. Wrong felony. H...

    THE WANTED. (2017). Robert Crais. ***. Disappointing. Mr. Crais in this, his seventeenth novel, has resuscitated a time-worn plot device and peopled it with uninteresting characters facing boring and predictable situations. There no signs of new approaches in this novel; the character...

    If you internet search Robert Crais it is interesting to note that he was greatly influenced by the works of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. It you add this piece of information to the fact that he was a writer for some early 80's made for TV series (Hill Street blues, Cagney an...

    Disappointing book #17 in an otherwise entertaining crime fiction series. I thought it read like a 1970's "Made for TV" movie with the pace, prose and complexity of last year's calendar. Where have you gone Elvis and Joe Pike! ...

    ?The Wanted? by Robert Crais is number seventeen in his ?Elvis Cole? series. Even though Elvis and Joe continue from previous books, new readers can jump right into this book without any problem. Devon Connor hires private investigator Elvis Cole to find out how her ?trou...

    4.5 stars because I like this series with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike so much! Private detective Elvis Cole accepts a job from Devon Connor. Her son Tyson has started wearing Rolex watches, designer clothes and flashing loads of cash and she's afraid he is selling drugs. Wrong felony. H...

    THE WANTED. (2017). Robert Crais. ***. Disappointing. Mr. Crais in this, his seventeenth novel, has resuscitated a time-worn plot device and peopled it with uninteresting characters facing boring and predictable situations. There no signs of new approaches in this novel; the character...

    I am a huge fan of Elvis Cole, but The Wanted fell flat for me. I generally love reading about both Elvis and Joe Pike, but I could barely stomach reading about the two ridiculous bad guys ? they were way too over the top for me. I also didn?t feel that Tyson Connor was very believ...

    Rounded up to 4 stars. Elvis Cole is asked by a concerned mother why her son has an extravagant Rolex watch, and the truth is horrifying: he and two friends are involved in a criminal enterprise, and there are two stone-cold killers, posing as cops, after them. Here is the essence of t...

    Private eye Elvis Cole and his partner, Joe Pike, make a great team - reminiscent of the late Robert B. Parker's Spenser and Hawk. Together, they can take on the world. But when they bump up against a trio of teens who specialize in upscale burglaries, they may have met their match. ...

    Many many years ago I stumbled across the first book featuring the funny and enigmatic Elvis Cole, and it was love at first book! I have been a huge fan of the series since, and they are the type of comfort books I turn to when I feel a bit book-jaded. Crais always delivers a solid mys...

    The Elvis Cole detective books are perhaps the most progressive series in the mystery genre today. This is a startling fact when you consider Robert Crais?s The Wanted is the 17th go round with this private investigator and his stoic partner Joe Pike. What makes these books so pionee...

    We all waited forEVER for this book, which was supposed to be out more than a year ago. The problem, is that Crais' stuff is SO good, that I finished the book within 24 hours. Elvis Cole, and Joe Pike are icons, in modern-day crime fiction. The stories are so well-written, with such a ...

    It's been too long since the last Elvis Cole and Joe Pike book came out. For red blooded ?murican(sic) women it's been way too long since the last Joe Pike was published. Just sayin'. This book went far too quickly considering how much I enjoy the smart-ass Elvis Cole and the ummm, s...

    I am a huge fan of Elvis Cole, but The Wanted fell flat for me. I generally love reading about both Elvis and Joe Pike, but I could barely stomach reading about the two ridiculous bad guys ? they were way too over the top for me. I also didn?t feel that Tyson Connor was very believ...

    Rounded up to 4 stars. Elvis Cole is asked by a concerned mother why her son has an extravagant Rolex watch, and the truth is horrifying: he and two friends are involved in a criminal enterprise, and there are two stone-cold killers, posing as cops, after them. Here is the essence of t...

    I want to start out by saying that this is my first Cole/Pike story. I also want to say it wasn't bad - I just...felt bored. Maybe it's my fault. In the bookstore, this was just on a normal shelf - not on a display table or prominently placed or anything, so to say that this cover ...

    Private eye Elvis Cole and his partner, Joe Pike, make a great team - reminiscent of the late Robert B. Parker's Spenser and Hawk. Together, they can take on the world. But when they bump up against a trio of teens who specialize in upscale burglaries, they may have met their match. ...

    What a treat it is to have Elvis Cole and Joe Pike back! When teenager Tyson Connor?s mother Devon calls Elvis, she is afraid her son is selling drugs because he?s suddenly flush with cash and wearing expensive clothes. Initially, Elvis suspects the same thing, but a little more in...

    Many many years ago I stumbled across the first book featuring the funny and enigmatic Elvis Cole, and it was love at first book! I have been a huge fan of the series since, and they are the type of comfort books I turn to when I feel a bit book-jaded. Crais always delivers a solid mys...

    The Elvis Cole detective books are perhaps the most progressive series in the mystery genre today. This is a startling fact when you consider Robert Crais?s The Wanted is the 17th go round with this private investigator and his stoic partner Joe Pike. What makes these books so pionee...

    We all waited forEVER for this book, which was supposed to be out more than a year ago. The problem, is that Crais' stuff is SO good, that I finished the book within 24 hours. Elvis Cole, and Joe Pike are icons, in modern-day crime fiction. The stories are so well-written, with such a ...

    3.5?s for me. I have to admit that I?ve never previously read a Robert Crais book. No particular reason. I think that from being such a creature of habit, I tend to stick with Authors that I already know and love. But thanks to NetGalley, I?ve now had my reading tastes shift t...

    I enjoyed this addition to the Elvis Cole and Joe Pike collection. This one felt a little different because the problems involved three young adults with a total lack of caring for the consequences of the crimes they were committing. Their view of what was fun was painfully innocent. T...

    Almost a perfect story, save the stupidity of a couple characters. 8 of 10 stars ...

    This book hooked me in...This is book 17 in the Elvis Cole series but the first that I have read. It read fine as a stand alone story but there wasn't too much insight into the characters. Elvis is hired to look into how a teenager at high school has suddenly come into large amount...

    ? ? ? ? 1/2 (rounded up) This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader. --- A single mom has worries about the way that her teen-aged son is behaving -- and when you add in flashy clothes, a Rolex, and more money in his pocket than most book bloggers have in their ch...

    For some reason, I have not read a whole lot of Robert Crais' books, which is actually a little odd as I have really liked most the ones that I did read. The same goes for this one with Elvis Cole as the main protagonist and Joe Pike only playing a minor supporting role. Crais sets a...

    Once you start reading this, it'll be hard to stop. I ended up finishing it at 3am, and then I was so sad it was over. One more fantastic ride in a series that I love. ...

    Thank God I finished when I did....I have no fingernails left. Review to follow. ...

    I have been reading the Pike/Elvis saga for years, and continue to enjoy the relationship between the two and the problems they get themselves involved in! Just a fun book to read, with bumbling bad guys, off the wall teenage burglars, and interesting police officers with a little bit ...

    4 and 1 / 2 stars Devon Connor is a single mom who is very worried about what her son Tyson might doing. She calls PI Elvis Cole because she is worried that he has gotten involved in selling drugs. Her proof is all the expensive things he has about the house, including a very expens...

    If you internet search Robert Crais it is interesting to note that he was greatly influenced by the works of Raymond Chandler and Dashiell Hammett. It you add this piece of information to the fact that he was a writer for some early 80's made for TV series (Hill Street blues, Cagney an...

    Disappointing book #17 in an otherwise entertaining crime fiction series. I thought it read like a 1970's "Made for TV" movie with the pace, prose and complexity of last year's calendar. Where have you gone Elvis and Joe Pike! ...

    ?The Wanted? by Robert Crais is number seventeen in his ?Elvis Cole? series. Even though Elvis and Joe continue from previous books, new readers can jump right into this book without any problem. Devon Connor hires private investigator Elvis Cole to find out how her ?trou...

    4.5 stars because I like this series with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike so much! Private detective Elvis Cole accepts a job from Devon Connor. Her son Tyson has started wearing Rolex watches, designer clothes and flashing loads of cash and she's afraid he is selling drugs. Wrong felony. H...

    THE WANTED. (2017). Robert Crais. ***. Disappointing. Mr. Crais in this, his seventeenth novel, has resuscitated a time-worn plot device and peopled it with uninteresting characters facing boring and predictable situations. There no signs of new approaches in this novel; the character...

    ?Harvey and Stemms were making progress, but they couldn?t just blow into the club and flash the picture. The photograph of Unknown Male Subject Number One was dangerous.? Devon Connor is a single mother, concerned when her teenaged son Tyson suddenly seems to have a lot of mo...

    It wasn?t until I finished reading The Wanted by Robert Crais that I realised that this was one of many in a series featuring private detective Elvis Cole and his silent side kick Joe Pike. So not having read one of them before certainly doesn?t make it difficult to follow, so quit...

    Elvis has not left the building Another excellent adventure with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. Good people are helped and bad guy butt is kicked. Very good with Elvis's typical humor. ...

    3.5?s for me. I have to admit that I?ve never previously read a Robert Crais book. No particular reason. I think that from being such a creature of habit, I tend to stick with Authors that I already know and love. But thanks to NetGalley, I?ve now had my reading tastes shift t...

    I enjoyed this addition to the Elvis Cole and Joe Pike collection. This one felt a little different because the problems involved three young adults with a total lack of caring for the consequences of the crimes they were committing. Their view of what was fun was painfully innocent. T...

    Almost a perfect story, save the stupidity of a couple characters. 8 of 10 stars ...

    This book hooked me in...This is book 17 in the Elvis Cole series but the first that I have read. It read fine as a stand alone story but there wasn't too much insight into the characters. Elvis is hired to look into how a teenager at high school has suddenly come into large amount...

    I am a huge fan of Elvis Cole, but The Wanted fell flat for me. I generally love reading about both Elvis and Joe Pike, but I could barely stomach reading about the two ridiculous bad guys ? they were way too over the top for me. I also didn?t feel that Tyson Connor was very believ...

    Rounded up to 4 stars. Elvis Cole is asked by a concerned mother why her son has an extravagant Rolex watch, and the truth is horrifying: he and two friends are involved in a criminal enterprise, and there are two stone-cold killers, posing as cops, after them. Here is the essence of t...

    Private eye Elvis Cole and his partner, Joe Pike, make a great team - reminiscent of the late Robert B. Parker's Spenser and Hawk. Together, they can take on the world. But when they bump up against a trio of teens who specialize in upscale burglaries, they may have met their match. ...

    Many many years ago I stumbled across the first book featuring the funny and enigmatic Elvis Cole, and it was love at first book! I have been a huge fan of the series since, and they are the type of comfort books I turn to when I feel a bit book-jaded. Crais always delivers a solid mys...
