Cole had a bad feeling about these people, and the more he learned the worse his feeling grew. The woman’s picture was best. She was turned to her left as if she was speaking with Mendoza or Azzara, so she was facing the camera. Wilson was peering over the steering wheel, which gave a three-quarter view with part of his face blocked by the side view mirror.

Joe Pike is fun to read because he gets to do all the things the rest of us only wish we could. He, along with Hawk from the Spenser novels, may be the most autonomous character in modern fiction. Crais moves the action commendably with just enough pause for explanation/reflection. I have only been to Los Angeles a couple of times, but I get a feeling of familiarity because Crais makes the city one of his characters. This adds a whole layer of interest and texture to all his novels.I discovered these books by accident, serendipity really, a copy of The Watchman was in the library of a condo I rented at the beach last summer. I have since read all of the Joe Pike and Elvis Cole novels and find them great fun, Crais has moved up alongside the late Robert B. Parker and John D. MacDonald as one of my all time favorites.

Ok, maybe not love, but a serious case of idealization and adoration of a woman who is not worthy. She's a thief, a liar, and both the Bolivian and Mexican mobs are after her and her boyfriend, Rainey. Pike meets her when he breaks up an apparent shakedown--which turns out to be so much more. Cole works with Pike to rescue the damsel, and also to heal his broken heart from the end of his relationship with Lucy Chenier, New Orleans attorney extraordinaire. There are crooked FBI agents, and people with false identities, but the real creep is Daniel, skilled in execution, who talks to Tobey and Cleo, who at first seem like cats, but who are actually the auditory hallucinations he manufactures to comfort himself and to bolster his murderous resolve. He's a pretty good portrait of an extreme paranoid schizophrenic--most paranoid schizophrenics don't come close to this guy, but there are a few (mostly in forensic prisons for the criminally insane, thankfully) who do. Chillingly insane, with long periods of lucidity, during which they can act on their delusions or follow the commands of their auditory hallucinations. Meds don't touch this type of delusional system. Scary.

So, unlike books who attempt to cast the bad guy or guys as insane, but come across with an unbelievable character, Crais renders his bad guy believable. He also gives us a sense why Pike hasn't had many girlfriends--he's attracted to apparently helpless, intelligent women, who turn out to shatter his illusions. Maybe like his mother who stayed too long w/ his abusive father?

From the start, things are not what they seem. Joe Pike stops to check his tires and senses there's something wrong with the two gangbangers who enter the store. His instinct is correct. Upon entering the store he sees them beating the proprietor and breaks one man's arm while the other escapes. But nothing is as it seems. The store owner lies about his identity. His "niece" lies about hers, though of course Joe doesn't discover this until later. And the store was under surveillance by someone posing as a federal agent.

The fun is in the way Crais presents the evidence while Joe and Elvis get to the bottom of it all.

I admit that since I've never read a Robert Crais Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series book that I didn't like, perhaps I was predisposed to like this one. But it was a good read from start to finish. There was none of the clever slight of hand, cheating with the evidence and characters, that marks a lesser author. I've read stories by others where suddenly the lead character "knows" something that he shouldn't, based on the narrative. Never happens with Crais. Enjoy the book. I did.

If you're an Elvis Cole/Joe Pike fan, you won't believe it, but in this book ... Joe Pike takes off his sunglasses. It actually shows how great a writer Robert Crais has become -- the fact he is able to show us a vulnerable side of Pike with such a simple gesture is pure genius. If you're new to the series, I do believe THE SENTRY would be more enjoyable for someone that has already read the earlier books, but it isn't necessary. The fast-paced plot, dialogue, and thrilling action sequences are vintage Crais -- and right now he's simply the best author in this genre.

I am a true fan of the writing of Robert Crais and Joe Pike is my favorite of the two principal characters. However, there is a problem there. Of the two - Cole and Pike - there are not nearly as many books featuring Pike so I have to ration them out. That's why I'm just getting around to reading this one.

This book had more twists and turns in it than a roller coaster ride at the fair. Just when I thought I knew where it was headed and got myself all settled down to take it to the finish line Crais put in a twist that made me back up and rethink my entire notions of how it was going to turn out. Crais does use two different styles of writing so each book fits the personality of the main character. This one is sparse on both dialog and inner thoughts because Pike appears to be able to go for days without speaking and he acts, he doesn't just think and plan and come up with strategies. This novel had Joe Pike form an instant attraction for a woman which only escalated when she needed his help. He made a promise to her that the gang members would no come back to harass her uncle at his take-out sandwich shop and Pike is an honorable man of his word. When trouble came calling again he felt it was his responsibility to live up to that promise..

I find it very interesting to see the method Robert Crais uses to portray the violence encountered by his main characters. Books published now seem to almost try to outdo each other in splattering blood and brain matter all over the walls and pages of the books I'm reading. Crais does things differently; he gives you the same feeling of violence but uses finesse to allow the reader to provide as much or as little gore as they want. Personally, I'm getting pretty tired of reading the vivid descriptions so I appreciate Mr. Crais letting me come up with my own mental picture of what a slaughter scene looked like. I will say, this book has one seriously psychotic killer in it. Took me a while to figure out what was going on with Daniel and his friends.
