My cousin found Robert Crais while searching for audio books to listen on her long drive to work and said I might like his work. I started at the beginning with The Monkey's Raincoat and have read them all back to back without stop. There's not a single one I can put down. I wanted to move to the next book as soon as I finished one. Indigo Slam is no exception. The characters are rich, well defined, funny, strong, smart, clever, heart-breaking and unrelenting. The plot moves quickly, pushing from one piece of info into more action into info into character reveal with surprises along the way. I love when a book in an established genre can surprise me. Joss Whedon (of Buffy and The Avengers fame) makes sure something happens in every scene of his TV shows/movies to make it over-the-top interesting with either action, character reveal, or other info so you want to see each scene multiple times. That's what Crais does with Elvis Cole (and Joe Pike and Scott James) novels. I can already tell Indigo Slam is going to be a book I read multiple times. I'm already on my second go-round and am finding more enjoyment the second time. Can't recommend it enough. It brings new life to my favorite genre of novels.

For me, the mystery of Indigo Slam is why it was out of print for years. Originally published in 1997, it didn't come out in paperback till 2003 (and the hardcover disappeared), while other later Crais novels (including another Cole book) did the usual hardcover-to-paperback cycle and remained on the shelves. Whatever the reason, it's here now and it's really good.
Elvis Cole, self-proclaimed World's Greatest Detective, is hired by three children to find their father. Motivated more by conscience than money, he helps them. When it turns out that the father is on the run from the Russian mob, Elvis starts getting in over his head. Fortunately, there is his laconic partner Pike to watch his back.
Mystery fans will see a certain similarity between the Cole books and Robert Parker's Spenser. Both feature wise-cracking tough private eyes with mysterious but generally good-hearted partners. Unfortunately, over the years, I found Spenser getting unlikably smug and self-righteous, while Cole remains a pleasure to read about. And both Cole and Pike are much more well-developed than either Spenser or Hawk, neither of whom even reveal their full names (the single-named hero is a bit of a tired gimmick nowadays...Richard Stark's Parker is forgiven because he's been around since the mid-60's).
You don't need to have read other Elvis Cole novels to get into this one; Crais makes it easy to get right into things. For fans of the private-eye novel, you'll find this - like all the other novels by Crais - delightfully entertaining.

I read this book some years ago but loaned out my copy. So I bought it to read again. It was just as good the second time around! I LOVE Robert Crais' books. I can't decide whether I like Elvis Cole or Joe Pike better. Their friendship is something we should all have in our lives. Robert Crais' stories are always believable and exciting, with touches of humor and compassion. The cat who "lives with him" is quite a character too. As with any thriller/detective story, I think the characters are better when unencumbered with significant others, but are left on their own. I highly recommend this book, as well as all other books by this author. I have read them all several times...

This is another installment in the classic ongoing Elvis Cole and Joe Pike detective series. The story starts off with a three year flashback to a rainy night in Seattle as Clark Hewitt and his three children are being clandestinely extracted from their home by Federal Marshals. Gunshots are fired and one of the Marshals is killed. As the family is whisked away in a van, the then twelve-year-old eldest daughter Teri holds her trembling Father tightly and feels his shaking ease.

Three years later as Elvis sat in his Los Angeles office talking on the phone to his girl friend, the door opened and three children walked in. The oldest of the children said: "Mr. Cole, my name is Teresa Haines. This is my brother Charles, and our sister, Winona. Our Father has been missing for eleven days, and we'd like you to find him." Teri is now two months shy of being sixteen, Charles (one of the great characters in the story) is twelve, and Winona is nine. Charles is already creating problems by touching Elvis's Jiminy Cricket statuette and like every person who has ever entered this office, from FBI agents to lawyers to killers, is taken aback by Elvis's Pinocchio clock that hangs on the wall above the file cabinet. "The clock has eyes that move from side to side as it tocks and is a helluva thing to watch." Despite being only twelve years old, anytime Charles didn't like what he was told, or just didn't like an individual in his vicinity, he would cough and say "assh*le". Or cough and say "pri*k". Or cough and say "eat me". They had looked Elvis up in the phone book and chose him because his ad said "confidential investigations".

It turns out the kids Father is involved with counterfeiting, and after becoming a witness against the Russian mob entered the witness protection program. That was the reason for the multiple last names and his disappearance. Elvis develops a paternal fondness for the kids and takes the job despite the fact that he is losing money from his very first investigative flight to Seattle. The case winds up involving the Federal Marshals, Secret Service, Treasury Department, the Russian Mob, Vietnamese Revolutionaries, dope dealers and numerous other luminaries on both sides of the legal fence. This book is never dull with the combination of unknowns at every turn, the reader is also blessed with the author's non-stop parenthetical humorous thoughts and comments going on in Elvis's head. And throughout this epic tale, you can always count on Charles's "coughing-vulgarities" and twelve-year-old un-restrained machismo, whenever he appears in his "award-winning" supporting role. This is a non-stop fun ride from start to finish!

I had read this book along time ago and forget some of it. It's an awesome book. Elvis couldn't just let the children he found without their parent alone. He stepped in to keep them safe and got much more than he bargained for. It's about the Russian mob and counterfeiting money. The FBI and Secret Service are involved. Of course, Joe Pike is there to help.

This book flows well. The it is written well. The children capture your heart...even Charles that is loud and out of control.
