Publisher's Summary

Elvis Cole, wisecracking private eye, finds himself embroiled in a controversial LA murder case. A wealthy WASP entrepreneur appears to have murdered his wife. A hot-shot defense attorney takes the case and hires Elvis to find proof that the L.A. detective - rumored to be dirty - fooled around with the evidence. But as Elvis investigates, he becomes more suspicious of the media-loving lawyer than the cops. With sidekick Joe Pike and girlfriend Lucy Chenier in tow, Elvis carries the day.

Investigate another case with Elvis Cole and Joe Pike.

    "Good for series fans"

    Good book but not the best in the series. Story coverage of Joe was weak, focused on Elvis. I felt character development across the board was a bit soft. Regardless, If you are a fan, it is worth the credit. If you are looking to test the waters, there are much better books to start.

    "Replace this narrator"
    Would you be willing to try another one of David Stuart’s performances?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    Fine book. The narrator's voice demolishes Elvis Cole's character. After 45 minutes I had to stop listening. I read the book and enjoyed it immensely.

    "I loved this book!"
    Would you listen to Sunset Express again? Why?

    I would listen to this again, and actually am right now with my husband. This book has a great reader and the story is full of action and love and humor, and intrigue through the whole book. Was sorry when it ended.


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

    Yes, there were a few plots and they were intertwined through out the book.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were many good ones, but I love all the scenes when Joe Pike and Elvis Cole are together, they are a great team and it's fun to listen to their banter.

    What did you love best about Sunset Express?

    I always love the humour in the way Crais writes.


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

    ...always has a twist


    Which character ??? as performed by David Stuart ??? was your favorite?

    I can't really pick a favorite... I'm amazed that he can stay in character for so many people!

    "Elvis Cole and Joe Pike"

    Another great story by Robert Crais and narration by David Stuart. I love the way Stuart portrays Elvis.

    Story
    "Great narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Sunset Express the most enjoyable?

    The reader captured Elvis Cole as clever, funny and low key, not as the typical tough guy.


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

    Although the ending was predictable in some ways, there were still surprises. I did have a hard time turning it off.


    What about David Stuart’s performance did you like?

    Loved him. He portrayed Elvis Cole the way I imagined him to be from reading many of the books.


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

    I could have.
