Great Series. ( )

Free Fall is the 4th book in Robert Crais' Elvis Cole series. Not a foreigner to the "lady in trouble" situation, Elvis jumps in again and, with the able assistance of his partner, the mysterious Joe Pike, he finds the pool he's chosen to swim in is full of South Central gangs, cops you can't trust, an old police shooting that won't stay "a good shoot," and a suspect that turns the tables on Elvis and Joe and it is them at the top of the most wanted list. As with all of Crais' books, the people--good and bad--are solid and well-drawn, the plot moves you to avid pager-turning, and an ending you can like. ( )

Elvis is hired to find out why a policeman is acting strangely to is girlfriend since childhood. Come to find out that he is covering up for others on the force in his platoon that are stealing and have been blackmailed by a LA Gangster Cartel. Novel came out in 1993 and is interesting knowing about city and stars and music from that time period. Over time Crais novels have changed and Elvis has become more serious. ( )

typical Joe Pike / Elvis Cole LA scene — not bloody / Risque
good story / funny guys

Private detective Elvis Cole takes Jennifer Sheridan's case, which involves her decorated Los Angeles-cop boyfriend in some mysterious trouble, and Cole and his partner Pike are soon plunged in police corruption, gangs, and the depiction of themselves as armed killers.

From Amazon:

Private detective Elvis Cole takes Jennifer Sheridan's case, which involves her decorated Los Angeles-cop boyfriend in some mysterious trouble, and Cole and his partner Pike are soon plunged in police corruption, gangs, and the depiction of themselves as armed killers.

My Thoughts:

Robert Crais has created a tough wise cracking LA detective named Elvis Cole. Woman want him. Men want to be him. One of the greatest things about Crais' novels is Elvis' partner Joe Pike. An aviator glasses wearing silent but deadly killing machine. Think Dirty Harry with a drier sense of humor. Although this is a crime and detection novel, it's also a story about love and commitment. I don't remember another book that develops all of those dimensions nearly as well. If you have never read any of this outstanding series, start with The Monkey's Raincoat and work your way through it. You won't be disappointed.
