Robert Crais found early success working in television, writing scripts for Hill Street Blues, Cagney & Lacey, Miami Vice, and L.A. Law. He earned an Emmy nomination for his work on Hill Street Blues, and his four-hour NBC miniseries, Cross of Fire, was called “a searing and powerful documentation of the Ku Klux Klan’s rise to national prominence in the 20s” by the New York Times. One of his standalone novels, Hostage, was made into a movie starring Bruce Willis. In the mid-eighties, Robert created the notable character of Elvis Cole. The resulting novel, The Monkey’s Raincoat, won the Anthony and Macavity Awards and was nominated for the Edgar Award. He went on to write 21 novels, sixteen of them featuring private investigator Elvis Cole and his laconic ex-cop partner Joe Pike. Robert’s latest work, A Dangerous Man, sees Joe alongside Elvis on the case of a missing woman. A young bank teller, Isabel Roland, is abducted right before Joe’s eyes. As Joe chases down and arrests the two abductors, he quickly realizes that is only the beginning of a long line of arrests for himself and Elvis.
