I love All of the Elvis Cole Novels and this is one of the best. Joe Pike is a favorite character and he comes alive in this book. Could not get out of the car. Great read.
Crais doesn't disappoint. I was a bit worried, after his last work, that he was losing his edge, but there was no need. He's raised the bar on himself. I love the plotting (replete with switchbacks) as well as the bond between Pike and Cole and the relationships they have independent of each other. I could go on, but I'd just be gushing. Whether a Pike fan, a Cole fan or simply a detective mysery fan, The Sentry is a great listen. I once again find myself in the "can't wait for the next one" mode.
I've enjoyed the other Joe Pike novels, thought that they were cleverly written and that Joe's character was one I would follow for some time to come.
However, this installment was just plain crass. Over the top language, cheap characters with cheap lives, and in many cases downright weird. I got about half-way through and chalked it up as a loss.
I love Science Fiction, Mysteries, Thrillers & Werewolves & Vampires. I devour audiobooks. Driving, cleaning house & anytime.
Action packed and thoroughly entertaining. Pike and Elvis are really cool together. Can't wait for the next audiobook.
Really enjoyed this book it gave a little bit more insight into Pike. I enjoy the friendship he has with Elvis Cole. Great storyline!!!
yes. you just know what you're getting with a Robert Crais/Joe Pike novel
there isn't much of a mystery here, i would have liked a more complex story
Danial Vincent... the psycho assassin
there's no surprises here, i.e. when he meets the girl and her uncle, you know that they are not what they seem... but Pike is such a fun character
Have enjoyed intrigue of other Crais books. Who would "enjoy" abuse???
His performance was not the problem, it is the content.
