    Crais has a knack for creating vivid secondary characters, which is a vital skill when the main protagonists remain the same through the series. So his hotshot attorney hires P. You can read how that works out for all concerned in the Crais' next novel, The Last Detective. These guys do not belong to the school of brooding investigators struggling with their sobriety and fighting their dark thoughts as they work to atone for their violent urges and past indiscretions. I wish the family at the heart of this one had a little more

    The children capture your heart I get to this point sooner or later with most series, so this isn't unique to Crais. Their ne'er-do-well father went off on business and didn't come home; can Elvis Cole find him? And 2.

    It's Spetsnaz, just for the record. Guaranteed to arrive in the advertised condition. In Indigo Slam they duck and dive among a rich supporting cast some more believable than others of federal marshals, Russian mobsters, Asian counterfeiters, assorted police and secret service personnel, plus a trio of children. Teri, the client, is a pretty convincing high-functioning mid-teen, and her younger brother is an equally convincing brat. Elvis has to find Clark, extricate him from his present situation, reunite him with his children, and secure their safety from the Russians and Vietnamese.

Indigo Slam book

Where Chandler's Marlowe led the way, and Parker's Spenser followed, Elvis Cole fully upholds the style and the standard. This sometimes creates a problem with the bottom line, but he and his investigator partner, Joe Pike, always manage to make it work.

Cole has Pike, Lucy and a battle-scarred cat.

Indigo Blues (Indigo Slam)

There are many chases, Elvis gets pistol-whipped once again, and soon the lead begins to fly. I understand wanting to give your main character a personal life, but at times the situation with Lucy is just distracting.

Mar 30, Lance Charnes rated it liked it Recommends it for: Elvis Cole completists Shelves: fiction-mystery-detectivereviewed If you've been following along with the ongoing Elvis Cole saga, you know exactly how Indigo Slam book stories go: Elvis gets hired by someone usually female with a sob story, he pokes around while employing his signature wise-assery, finds that All Is Not What It Seems, gets beaten up, brings in his Terminator-like bestie Joe Pike, shoots the hell out of the bad guys, fails to get paid, then pops a cold one on the balcony of his Hollywood Hills A-frame.

Kidnappings, gunfights, and threats to Cole's bodily and emotional health ensue. Even Crais seems less than impressed with his baddies because they are barely in the book and only show up for the required scenes of threatening our hero and then the one or two Indigo Slam book scenes that follow.

January 1, Terence M Audio Book 3. But if you're like me -- on the bubble about this series, hoping the next one will do something different -- you're not going to find "new" in Indigo Slam.

All books will be shipped Media Mail days or Priority Mail days as specified by the buyer. Showing of 15 next show all Elvis is protecting a family of chldren whose father is a counterfieter.

The it is written well. Joe Pike has to shoot people. Elvis declines but follows her home to be sure they are okay. But things get complicated when her ex-husband shows up at Elviss office, claiming that Lucy still loves him and that he wont permit her to leave Louisiana.

I like the Elvis character and enjoy his escapades. Lucy is negotiating for a job in Los Angeles. I remember liking the first couple pretty well, and the next couple well enough, but at this point I'm undecided whether I want to sign up for more. Meanwhile, his girl friend, Lucy Chenier, is job hunting in LA.

Well, probably. So why the semi-meh rating? Spaces are large but not ostentatious. I need to know if Elvis and Lucy really have solved the problem of Lucy's nasty ex-husband. You return the book.

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.
