After The Watchman, one of the worst books in history, Chasing Darkness is another feeble effort. I have read all of the Crais books and they are steadily downhill. This book is short in length, limited in originality, and just follows a predictable formula as a story. Don't waste the money.

Believable characters with believable motives. Honest and heartbreaking at times but reads like an updated old detective novel. Protagonist is interesting and engaging. I'm hooked.

I am a recent "Elvis Cole and Joe Pike" fan, but this one was really layered. I love that; it keeps me turning pages.

A new twist on Elvis Cole, That is engaging, thrilling and still able to be human and touching. I have read all the Elvis Cole Novels and Chasing Darkness is so good that I am ready to pick it up and read it again.

Southern California is burning in the latest Elvis Cole novel, leading police to the body of Lionel Byrd while evacuating Laurel Canyon residents endangered by the fire. Evidence at the scene of Byrd's apparent suicide incriminates him in the murder of seven people, and the kicker is that two of them happened after Elvis Cole helped clear the man of one of the killings. Naturally, a guilt-wracked Cole is drawn into the case and soon finds evidence that Byrd's 'suicide' may have been staged and that the police are covering it up. Several twists and turns keep things interesting, and Cole's partner Joe Pike (who's always reminded me of Spenser's Hawk) is along for the ride, which is darker than some of the previous Elvis Cole entries. I like the fact that in 'Chasing Darkness' Crais continues to move away from his lighthearted, wisecrack-filled mysteries to a more hard-boiled styled with weightier themes and more powerful stories. Don't get me wrong though, 'Chasing Darkness' is far from morose or heavy-handed - it's an exciting, unpredictable thriller featuring two of the most colorful detectives in current crime fiction. Also recommended: 'A Stranger Lies There' by Stephen Santogrossi- a hard-boiled thriller set in the desert around Palm Springs, it won the Malice Domestic Award for best first mystery. I actually discovered this book last year in an Alfred Hitchcock Mystery Magazine review alongside Crais' previous novel The Watchman. The review stated: 'Santogrossi writes powerfully and movingly about a man who has paid for his mistakes only to find out that he's not through paying and never will be. An author to watch.'

Too short to be called a "novel." Most of the characters are boring and the plot is very predictable. Don't buy this one! by aj west

This is another of Robert Crais's great reads. His Elvis Cole is a likeable character and the events are believable and not so impossible as many other mystery reads. The story keeps moving and has surprise after surprise coming.

I have gotten tired of characters in other Authors book series but not with any of the Robert Crais books. Still loving Elvis and Pike. Somehow Robert Crais manages to keep it fresh and just as exciting book after book. Thanks.
