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.
Joe Pike steps in to save the humble owner of a Los Angeles bistro from gangsters. Pike saved Wilson Smith’s life for all intents and purposes. Smith and his attractive niece, Dru, though, are strangely resentful for their own reasons. When Pike’s affections for the lady become stronger, he and his partner, Elvis Cole, uncover that Dru and her uncle are not who they appear to be, and everything Pike has learned about them is a deception.
But it’s more than just a ruse. It’s a snare. And it’s proving to be a murderer with each new twist.
This is a good crime story, full of clever narrative twists and written in Crais’ easy-to-follow style. It’s well-paced and skillfully structured, with action, intrigue, and investigation thrown in for good measure. However, it lacks the beauty and grace of earlier volumes in the series, such as LA Requiem, The Last Detective, and The Forgotten Man, which are all excellent novels. It’s missing a leading guy, and I’m hoping to see Elvis Cole return to the screen soon.
The Sentry by Robert Crais
It’s also intriguing because, like Wilson and Dru, the narrative begins in New Orleans, and the most terrifying of the book’s numerous antagonists, Daniel, a self-described werewolf, is shown with strong horror undertones, like John Connolly on the bayou.However, there is a twist to the werewolf’s behavior, one whose effectiveness is dependent on how well you anticipate it, which is why I won’t reveal it. If it works for you, it adds an unusual sense of sympathetic tension to the story. The Sentry, on the other hand, is a surprisingly soft-centered and delicate narrative for a full-bore, fast-paced thriller, which it most surely is. Since The Monkey’s Raincoat, Crais has gone a long way, never dull and always unexpected.
The Thorn Birds by Colleen McCullough can be read for pleasures and enjoyment.
Dru Rayne and her uncle fled to Los Angeles following Hurricane Katrina, but they now face a new threat five years later. When Joe Pike sees Dru’s uncle being assaulted by a protection group, he offers his assistance, but neither he nor the federal officials who are strangely observing them want it. Pike and Elvis Cole discover that Dru and her uncle are not who they appear, and that everything he thought he knew about them was a deception as the violence grows and Pike himself becomes a target. Pike and Cole are the only ones standing between them and a furious and terrible entity from their past.
The Sentry by Robert Crais
The tale begins with Pike intervening in what appears to be a gang attack on a guy in his own restaurant.
As the man’s niece arrives to pick up the pieces, Pike becomes enamored with the lady, Dru Rayne, and eventually becomes entangled in her and her uncle’s lives, despite their aversion to letting him get too close.
When Dru and her Uncle vanish, Pike investigates more – with the help of Elvis Cole – and realizes that nothing in their life is as it seems.He swiftly gets himself embroiled in a federal drugs investigation and a deadly pursuit for a quantity of missing cash.
It all sounds like L.A. Confidential, with dead cops, dirty cops, and an unlikely romance between a law enforcement officer and a tarnished character in the City of Angels, and you can bet that Crais is aiming for the same big-ticket movie sale with a fast-paced case that reads like a 300-page treatment.
In his 21st book, Los Angeles ace Crais (The Promise, 2015, etc.) extends his streak of sharp, enjoyable thrillers.
Confessions on the 7:45 by Lisa Unger is also useful novel to read.
But, as already stated, they are minor quibbles.The Sentry 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.
