"(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."
- Amazon.Com

"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
