Bradley Warren had lost something very valuable, something that belonged to someone else: a rare thirteenth century Japanese manuscript called the Hagakure. Everything PI Elvis Cole knew about Japanese culture he'd learned from reading Shogun, but he knew a lot of crooks and what he didn't know, his sociopathic sidekick Joe Pike did.

Another great book book by Robert Crais. Now I have to read the whole series. ( )

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. ( )

The narrator did not do justice to the book. Also an abridged version - before I stopped buying them.
Fortuntely Crais got much better as he went on - thi8s is no a good example of his work. ( )

Mimi, a 16 year old, is not who you think she is. Elvis and Joe must figure her out in this mystery that involves a Japanese Shogun book. ( )

I really enjoy ‘early’ Robert Crais. Elvis Cole, ace private detective, is still sort of being defined as a character, as is his trusty nearly nonverbal sidekick Joe Pike, and in this episode Cole is hired to find a stolen rare Japanese manuscript. Before he knows it, he finds much more than he bargained for, and brings Pike in to get things moving. He’s fired from the job by the dickish guy who hired him but keeps working at it because there’s more to the story. Seems the guy’s young daughter is having some emotional issues that tie into the investigation.

Crais’ ‘schtick’ from the beginning with the great Cole character has been his sense of humor and his sharp tongue. That’s certainly the case here. His writing style is breezy, but the plot is a serious one and there’s some violence involved. The procedural stuff, although Cole is a PI and not a cop, seems solid and the story moves along at a fast clip. This is an early book in the fine ‘Elvis Cole’ series but well worth a look. ( )
