Crais: It's a Joe Pike novel
Crais: It's a Joe Pike novel. Wasn't supposed to be, so I was taken by surprise, but that's the way Pike is. I planned to follow my last book, The First Rule, with an Elvis Cole novel, but I saw Pike meet a woman in Venice, California, a few moments after Pike saved her uncle from a robbery. Ideas for books come to me that way-I'll see an image. The way Pike looked at her, I knew right away I had to follow their story.
Robert Crais on Joe Pike. Joe Pike is back, and this time I'm ready. The Watchman was the first Joe Pike novel. Joe is now returning in The First Rule
Robert Crais on Joe Pike. Joe is now returning in The First Rule. I mean, I knew Joe was popular, but c'monnnn. Elvis Cole is a great character but Pike has such a depth of character that his stories are hard for me to resist. I just can't help but wonder what is actually going on behind those dark glasses.
Elvis Cole is a great character but Pike has such a depth of character that his stories are hard for me to resist. I've only recently been introduced to the Cole/Pike series, and overall kudos to Robert Crais for his skill at mixing action, suspense, humor and even the occasional dollop of heartfelt sentiment in these books. However, this is the first I've read where Joe Pike is the central figure and, frankly?. I much prefer Elvis (Cole) being center stage.

The second Joe Pike solo adventure was better than the first, The Watchman. While I still never felt Pike was in jeopardy, the story had more twists and showed that Joe Pike has a softer side. Pike taking care of a baby was surprisingly touching. Following a growing dissatsifaction of a screen writer's constraints, Crais began writing novels.
