Taken (Elvis Cole/ Joe Pike Novels)


Taken For Granted    ****

Having read all of his books to date, I will say this isn’t Crais’ best or worst. The reader knows going in that the two main characters, Cole and Pike, are going to be okay and that they will find the people they are looking for. But it is the story of how that makes this a good read. The subject of human trafficking is a sad one and this is a decent expose of it.
Some reviewers did not like the multiple points of view and the changing time line, after watching three seasons of “Damages”, I had no problem with either of those. To expect every book of a series to be a knockout is probably a little unrealistic but as many have said we know Robert can do better.
