Free Fall - Robert Crais

Yes... I am in a rut of Elvis Cole, but it is anything but a rut.  I have finished Free Fall, I'm currently reading Voodoo River, and I'm looking at a pile of 4 more unread Elvis Cole (and Joe Pike!) novels sitting on top of my bookshelf.

Free Fall takes place in Los Angeles again, and this time Elvis Cole takes on an elite crime fighting unit at the request of the fiance of the junior member of the group.  He soon finds out they are tied into some illegal activity, and I'll just say it's pretty complicated.  Along the way, Elvis and Joe get arrested, which is TOTALLY AWESOME in the novel.    They handle it pretty well, and it is definitely a new twist in the series.

Joe Pike is extensively involved in this novel, and I love it.  I don't think I've mentioned this before, but there is a lot of gun talk in these novels, and it ranks in seamlessness with Lee Child's gun talk.  Interestingly enough, Elvis carries a firearm that I've never heard of, a Dan Wesson.

Right now, I'm halfway through Voodoo River, which takes place in Baton Rough, LA.  It is awesome too!
