The Monkey's Raincoat

The Monkey's Raincoat (Elvis Cole, #1) The Monkey's Raincoat by Robert Crais

My rating: 3 of 5 stars
A friend who knows how much I adore Nelson Demille's John Corey told me I might enjoy the Elvis Cole novels. What do you know? I did.

The sarcastic, altruistic tough guy with a streak of impatience for rules and regulations, this book reads like a Bruce Willis cop drama. In fact, it's suprising that no one has snatched these books up to make into movies. Hmmm....

Set in the 80s before cell phones were common and ignoring the cops was trendy, this pulp fiction-esq detective novel grabbed me. I already miss Elvis Cole and I'm sure I'll be back for more.
