    Your favorite mystery novelist

    Discuss Mystery novels worth reading and post authors worthy of mention due to extensive works

    But please try to keep it rather short and interesting as this isn't some school assignment

    And if you read this and refuse/forget to post, I'm coming after you and your family personally to [s]kill you all[/s] deliver some "special" treats ~

    As for me, this was taken from the Robert Crais page on Wikipedia.

    "Crais's usual protagonist and first-person narrator is private detective Elvis Cole, an ex-Ranger. Cole's partner is Joe Pike, a former Marine. Except for Demolition Angel, Hostage and The Two-Minute Rule, all of Crais' books feature Cole and Pike, with The Watchman (2007), The First Rule (2010) and The Sentry (2011) centering on Joe Pike.
    The author tackles a variety of subjects in his novels. Free Fall was inspired by the Rodney King riots and Sunset Express dealt with a killer who bore an uncanny resemblance to O.J. Simpson. The most frequently recurring theme in Crais's books is the value of honesty; in his works, the long-term value of coming clean always outweighs the short-term benefits of covering up the problem. Crais also delves into issues of family and loyalty."

    I'd also like to point out that Elvis Cole ranks in my top five funniest book protagonists of all time IMO
