L.A. Requiem (Elvis Cole #8) by Robert Crais


Book Description

Publication Date:July 22, 2009
The day starts like any other in L.A. The sun burns hot as the Santa Ana winds blow ash from mountain fires to coat the glittering city. But for private investigator Joe Pike, the city will never be the same again. His ex-lover, Karen Garcia, is dead, brutally murdered with a gun shot to the head.
Now Karen’s powerful father calls on Pike (a former cop) and his partner, Elvis Cole, to keep an eye on the LAPD as they search for his daughter’s killer–because in the luminous City of Angels, everyone has secrets, and even the mighty blue have something to hide. But what starts as a little procedural hand-holding turns into a deadly game of cat-and-mouse. For a dark web of conspiracy threatens to destroy Pike and Cole’s twelve-year friendship–if not their lives. And L.A. just might be singing their dirge.
Review –
Although I haven’t read this series in order I love them. In this one, number eight, I found out a lot of background information on Joe Pike that I didn’t know and now he doesn’t seem so mysterious. Also, I can now understand why he acts the way he does. He is one of my favorite literary characters.
Looking forward to reading another in this series very soon. If you like crime drama you should try an Elvis Cole/Joe Pike novel.
