A Dangerous Man by Robert Crais delivers a welcome addition to the popular Joe Pike/Elvis Cole series. Car chases and skullduggery galore all start with a foiled kidnapping. Or was it? Bodies start piling up and the questions keep on coming. A family history that bites the next generation, corporate hijinks, truly nasty bad guys, a rollicking southern CA vibe all come together in short chapters that are like eating candy. Pike is his laconic and deadly self--an irresistible combination. Perfect for the hammock!
