The Wanted

1 Mins read

Robert Crais’ 17th Elvis Cole novel is just as fresh as the first, The Monkey’s Raincoat, which has now been in print for 30 years. LA-based PI Cole and his partner Joe Pike are in a race against both the police and some serious bad guys to get to troubled teen, James Connor, first.

The police want him for a string of burglaries in LA’s rich, gated communities, and two killers are after him for incriminating evidence he has unwittingly stolen.

The veteran author makes the most of his promising set-up to deliver a tense thriller that ricochets across the urban jungle as the body count builds up. You can read our full review here.
