Product Details


The Wanted is a firecracker of a book—a great way to jumpstart the new year.”—The Wall Street Journal

“Gripping…The Wanted brings private detective Elvis Cole back in his full glory, so if you’re a fan you’ll rejoice, while new readers can celebrate a welcome literary gift from a master of the craft.”—The Huffington Post

“[A]nother page-turner by one of the most reliable storytellers in modern crime fiction.”—Associated Press
“Expertly crafted.”—Seattle Times

“Crais’s trademark humor and thoroughly accurate, genuine depictions of human interactions make this one of his best yet… [He] delivers another highly and deeply satisfying page-turner.”—Library Journal

“Crais, who has a Grandmaster Award from the Mystery Writers of America, always delivers riveting crime fiction while somehow offering something unique in every novel. Here it’s the surprisingly interesting, Tarantino-like conversations between Harvey and Stemms as they plan their next deadly steps. More fantastic reading from a perennial A-lister who belongs on every crime fan’s TBR list.”—Booklist (starred review)

“Among West Coast mystery writers, none is more reliable than Crais, who is in excellent form here….In his 21st book, Los Angeles ace Crais extends his streak of sharp, enjoyable thrillers.”—Kirkus Reviews
“The empathic Elvis takes center stage, with just enough hard-boiled Pike to season the mayhem…expertly crafted.”—Publishers Weekly  

“Crais is one of the best crime writers in the business, and this thrilling novel will not only be wanted by thriller aficionados, but cherished as well. He has another guaranteed bestseller on his hands.”—Suspense Magazine

“[Crais is] an excellent maker of suspense plots and thriller scenes, and gives full value on that score, but his real interest is in character, including mostly people who also seem grim and dark.”—Sullivan County Democrat

“[An] outstanding crime-thriller…the tone is clearly dark, bordering on noir, to spectacular results. The Wanted is a book you definitely want to find under your Christmas tree. A relentless and riveting read that is everything great crime fiction is supposed to be.”—Providence Journal
