From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Elvis Cole and Joe Pike series comes a thrilling novel featuring LAPD K-9 Officer Scott James and his German shepherd, Maggie.
When a rich entrepreneur is accused of murder in Los Angeles, wisecracking private detective Elvis Cole is recruited to establish that the evidence was tampered with, and he begins to question the defense attorney’s motives. Teddy Martin, a well-known restaurateur, is accused of murdering his wife. But he isn’t going down without putting a lot of money into his defense. As a result, his hotshot lawyer hires private investigator Elvis Cole to locate evidence that Detective Angela Rossi tampered with the evidence. After falling hard during an internal investigation five years ago, Detective Rossi wants a path back to the fast lane.

Cole, on the other hand, wants to know if she’s desperate enough to fabricate the case against Martin in order to save her own job. As Cole and his sidekick Joe Pike go through a tangle of witnesses and an even more tangled web of media, they begin to think that the set-up isn’t being orchestrated by the cops. Sunset Express, the sixth novel in the Elvis Cole series, is defined by Robert Crais’ dark humor and tension that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
The public’s willingness to believe the worst of its police forces is an undertone in Southern California PI Elvis Cole’s latest case (after Voodoo River). The narrative unravels high-level venality, progresses Cole’s romance with Louisiana lawyer Lucy Chenier, and explains part of the backstory of Joe Pike, Cole’s mysterious,genuinely peculiar sidekick, beginning with the discovery of a body off Mulholland Drive in suburban L.A. Detective Angela Rossi discovers evidence that implicates Susan Martin’s husband, affluent mover and shaker Teddy Martin, soon after her death is discovered in a rubbish bag.

Teddy Martin’s lawyer, Jonathan Green, claims that LAPD Detective Angela Rossi put the hammer that murdered Susan Martin in her husband’s shrubbery, and employs Elvis Cole (Voodoo River, 1995, etc.) to uncover flaws in her account. Elvis, on the other hand, is stymied for the time being. Despite Le Cedrick Earle’s claims that Rossi set him up five years ago, Earle’s own mother warns Cole that he can’t be believed, and there’s no additional proof that Rossi is a rotter. So Cole, still with the Big Green Defense Team, shifts his focus to following up on callers to Green’s hotline, and this time he strikes it rich:
The Ceiling Man by Patricia Lillie is very amusing novel.
A witness leads him to a pair of hoodlums who talked about kidnapping a wealthy woman and had Susan Martin photos in their apartment. The only problem is that the scum has been dead for three weeks.
Of course, it’s all a set-up, and Cole, already disoriented by the adoring media attention he’s been receiving since breaking open the case against Martin, now finds himself switching sides to go up against Martin, Green, and Co. with his sunglassed sidekick Joe Pike and his newest belle Lucy Chenier. But Green isn’t just any lawyer; he knows every trick in the book for keeping himself and his client as far away from the crime as possible by avoiding damning documents and trashing incriminating witnesses.
Lucy Chenier, a Baton Rouge attorney, is looking for a job that would keep her as close to Cole’s body as she is to his heart, but her powerful ex-husband intervenes just in time to put a stop to the arrangement. Cole will have to hold off him, the authorities, and the Russians long enough to glide into a Disneyland conclusion that screams movie movie movie. Sure, Cole makes the most of his easygoing demeanor. But since he’s riding Crais’s twistiest and best sustained plot with all the panache of John Travolta, it’s a pleasure to see him enjoying his work more than any other p.i. in California history.
In his 21st book, Los Angeles ace Crais (The Promise, 2015, etc.) extends his streak of sharp, enjoyable thrillers.
Nightingale House Steve Frech is also interesting book to read.
But, as already stated, they are minor quibbles. Sunset Express Robert Crais is a tense, emotionally gratifying thriller that introduces us to one of crime fiction’s most intriguing pairings.
It is hoped Scott James and Maggie will work together again soon.
