ROBERT CRAIS: REVIEWS - THE LAST DETECTIVETHE LAST DETECTIVE
"(THE LAST DETECTIVE has)...all the intensity and convoluted plotting of Crais's two recent stand-alone thrillers, DEMOLITION ANGEL and HOSTAGE...The terrible, heartstopping climax is so well written that time seems to stop. Crais combines the thriller and private eye genres into a dazzling novel..."
- Publisher's Weekly (Starred Review)
"Crais's...recent non-Cole thrillers (DEMOLITION ANGEL and HOSTAGE) were commercial and artistic successes, but it's great to have Elvis Cole back, especially in such a rich, multitextured story."
- Booklist (Starred Review)
"This dazzlingly plotted, crisply told story is threaded
with real detection (what a rarity!) and peopled by characters you can't help but care about...Crais has long been getting better with each book, and The Last Detective continues the pattern."
"This is Robert Crais's ninth novel about Elvis Cole, and within the boundaries of noir -- ultra-hard-boiled, Los Angeles noir, to be precise -- it strikes me as a classic. The story is shrewdly plotted and sharply written, with not an ounce of fat on it..."The Last Detective" is a rare treat."
- The Washington Post
"Thriller-seekers, look no further: Action man Crais just keeps getting
better. Elvis is king."
"Elvis Cole is Los Angeles."
- People Magazine
