    Elvis Cole's relationship with attorney Lucy Chenier is strained.

While Lucy is away on business and her 10-year-old son, Ben, is staying with Elvis, Ben disappears without a trace.

    Edgar Award nominee Robert Crais’ L.A. Requiem is a gritty, harrowing look into the minds of a serial killer and the men determined to stop him. Elvis Cole and former cop Joe Pike have been partners in a detective agency for 12 years. After an ex-girlfriend of Pike’s disappears, the girl’s father asks them to help the police with the search. When the missing persons case turns into a hunt for a killer who has been stalking victims in Los Angeles, Cole and Pike find themselves battling both a hostile police department and a madman.

    The organized criminal gangs of the former Soviet Union are bound by what they call the thieves' code. The first rule is this: A thief must forsake his mother, father, brothers, and sisters. He must have no family - no wife, no children - because only other criminals are his family. If any of the rules are broken, it is punishable by death.

    Would you listen to The First Rule again? Why?

    Yes and already have. Making my way thru Crais's books a second time. There are a few I can not handle the narrator but this is not one of them. I think Crais as the narrator gives the reader a better look into Elvis/Joe. Since he wrote the book he knows how to convey to the reader/listener what his intentions were.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Maybe not on the edge but close.


    What about Robert Crais’s performance did you like?

    Elvis and Joe and him. He conveys a part of himself thru his reading.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Joe with the baby.

    When a 15-year-old girl shows up to plead with Elvis to find her errant father, his first impulse is to hand the case over to Social Services. But he sees how hard the kid is working to keep her two siblings together and afloat. The father sounds like an angel; the case should be a cinch. But as Elvis investigates, he finds the dad seems to be a mover in the criminal underworld who is on the verge of a grand scheme.

    Where does Indigo Slam rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Bottom...only because of the Narrator. He sounds like a 14 year old kid. And can so not do female voices. I have been hocked on Robert Crais for a since I read LA Requiem. I started at Book 8 and listened forward. Now I am going backward. I so wish the same narrator would read throughout the series but I understand that is not always possible but changing every 2 books is a little extreme to me but I got use to them. However, not this one. Although he reads well and is easy to understand I can not for the life of me see that voice belonging to Elvis Cole or Joe Pike!!! I see he also was the narrator in Book 6 and this is going to be tough to get thru this one so not sure I will buy Book 6 via Audio. I would have given this book 5 stars if not for the narrator. I was excited about listening to this book thinking it would be kinda funny with Joe interacting with kids but sadly I am not sure I can listen to the remainder.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elvis and Joe as always


    How could the performance have been better?

    Different Narrator


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I'm not even sure I can get thru the first couple chapters.
