By their body language he can tell that they are planning to do something malicious. This mysterious assassin has two charming, probably invisible, friends who cheer him on, give him advice and are fiercely loyal. Sure enough, I won the FirstReads giveaway and here we are. A thrilling novel that will put you on a roller coaster ride of unbelivable tension. I do recall though Elvis being a little more 'light' and funny than he is these days, but hey, give the guy a break; he's had a lot of things happen to him since those sunny days 'eyeing the candy' from his second floor office where his clock tick-tocks with is eyes moving from side to side and tail keeping up with the eyes.

THE SENTRY by Robert Crais | Kirkus Reviews
This book introduced me more to the character Joe Pike, the partner and friend of Elvis Cole, the tough broody one, My third book by this author. While stopping to air up a tire, Joe Pike sees two men beating up a restaurant owner.
But I suppose I will. This is my favourite series by far and in The Sentry Crais proves once again what an amazing story-teller he is.
Joe Pike does what he always does, he helps people in distress and these two have their hands full of drama and violence. Doesn't go with the image.
He learns that the men were attempting to shake down the store owner to have him pay for protection. The main premise of the story was just not believable. The usual gun sdntry occur and Pike and Cole have to use their wits and strong right arms to foil the various plots and killers. While I understand that Pike is loyal to a fault, it just does not resonate that, no matter what the circumstances are, he will never go back on his word once promised.
There is a lot of brutal violence involved, and plenty of blood.
He learns fhe the me Joe Pike spots two men go into a store. There's plenty of action, but almost as much problem solving, which made a nice plot balance. Jan 23, Sandi rated it really liked it Shelves: Jul 12, Mike rated it really liked it.
Bad ass Joe Pike has some feelings after all and you feel for the poor bastard after all he goes through.
This is evident with sentences such as "I'm good. This is Joe Pike we're talking about. All in all, as good a read as you'd expect from Crais and definite proof that one book a year by him just isn't enough.
I found myself totally drawn to this book and feel that readers will also enjoy it. For one, there's nerdy John Chen helping the guys once again with their investigation and then there's Elvis' old flame Lucy Chenier.
While Pike is a mercenary, Crais doesn't make the book a mindless action-fest. See 1 question about The Sentry….
