Fiction. Mystery. Suspense. Thriller. HTML:Meet Elvis Cole, L.A. private eye . . . he quotes Jiminy Cricket and carries a .38. Hes a literate, wisecreacking Vietnam vet who is determined never to grow up.

The blonde who walked into Coles office was the bestlooking woman hed seen in weeks. The only thing that kept her from rating a perfect 10 was the briefcase on one arm and the uptight hotel magnate on the other. Bradley Warren had lost something very valuablesomething that belonged to someone else: a rare thirteenth-century Japanese manuscript called the Hagakure.

Just about all Cole knew about Japanese culture hed learned from reading Shogun, but he knew a lot about crooksand what he didnt know his sociopathic sidekick, Joe Pike, did. Together their search begins in L.A.s Little Tokyo and the nest of notorious Japanese mafia, the yakuza, and leads to a white-knuckled adventure filled with madness, murder, sexual obsession, and a stunning double-whammy ending. For Elvis Cole, its just another days work.

I really needed this one after my disappointing last book. Love Crais's stuff.
Nelson DeMille's John Corey series, Lee Child's Jack Reacher series, and Crais's Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series. 3 of my without a doubt favorites, and this one didn't disappoint! ( )

Not ask good as the first book. It was clear from the beginning how it would play out, still an enjoyable series so far. ( )

Forgive me if this has been covered in previous comments. I don't see a way to search for same.

All I know about LA is what I've read in Michael Connelley novels, but sure seems like Elvis Cole and Harry Bosch are neighbors. From Crais' Stalking the Angel (1989):

“It was past three and traffic was starting to build, so it took the better part of an hour to move back along Sunset and climb the mountain to the little A-frame I have off Woodrow Wilson Drive above Hollywood. When I got inside, I took two cold Falstaff beers out of the fridge, pulled off my shirt, and went out onto my deck.”

The first Bosch novel was published in 1992 and -- according to Wikipedia -- Harry's address is 7203 Woodrow Wilson Drive in the Hollywood Hills.

Reads like they have the same view of the Hollywood hills ( )

I really like this series. Elvis Cole is a compassionate, tough private detective, and I find him an engaging character. I will definitely read the next in this series. ( )
