What the Critics Say

"Stalking the Angel is a righteous California book: intelligent, perceptive, hard, clean." (James Elroy)

"Elvis Cole provides more fun for the reader than any L.A. private eye to come along in years." (Joseph Wambaugh)

"Stuart brings the quirky Cole to life quickly, combining his strengths (tenacity, incorruptibility, frequent flashes of humor) with his oddities (his love of the Disney artifacts that litter his office) to make a credible whole person. Other characters emerge with equal vocal skill: the enigmatic Joe Pike, Cole's muscular sidekick; a glowering Los Angeles property developer, his alcohol-impaired wife and their fragile adolescent daughter, who winds up being kidnapped by Japanese gangsters. Cole, hired to find a rare Japanese manuscript, discovers that the teenager's fate is very important to him personally forging a bond between the detective and children in peril that has become a hallmark of the series. For those who have been fans of Elvis since book one, The Monkey's Raincoat, it's good to have his early adventures around to listen to. For more recent Crais converts, this could prove an eye-opening revelation of how Cole got to be who he is." (Publishers Weekly)

    "disapointing"

    My 1st book Robert Crais book I listened too. It had 4 stars but it was disappointing for me. Just took too long to get started and when it did nothing very exciting happened. 'Joe Pike's role was pretty small. To be fair I will try another Crais book.
