Today is a sad day. Five months ago I was introduced to the Cole/Pike series, and today, with the completion of The First Rule, I have finished the series.
I can truly say that this is the finest,brilliantly written and exciting crime thriller series that I have ever read..and I include the wonderful Lee Child and Vince Flynn in that analysis.
You just have to start with the first story...and you're hooked. They just get better and better, and the two books where Joe Pike is the 'lead' character are arguably the best of the lot.
I've got John Grisham, James Patterson, Dennis Lehane and more lining up on my Kindle waiting to be read...all I've wanted to do when I've completed one Cole/Pike novel is download the next one. Yes, they are THAT addictive.
So for those of you thinking of downloading this book and who haven't read the previous books in the series, I would say...DON'T! Instead, search The Monkeys Raincoat and get started on a series that will grip you like you wouldn't believe.
I see there's another in the series due out this year. Just keep 'em coming Robert...this series can run for years. And when is someone going to take up the film rights and get these stories out in the cinema? Its got to happen surely.
