The Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series continues with The Sentry. Technically, it is a Joe Pike novel, but as with most of the books in this series, you get a little bit of both.
Joe Pike stumbles into a gang intimidation racket (the famed "give us money or your restaurant gets damaged" routine) in progress and, of course, the two fools actually attempt to fight Pike.
But, somewhere along the way things go awry. The FBI has Dru and her Uncle's restaurant under surveillance, the talk with the gang's leader seems to have come to nothing despite promises that were made and Dru and her uncle go missing after their restaurant is gruesomely vandalized. Joe and Elvis start to dig to see what has happened and they find out that almost nothing is what it seemed...
I rate this book 4 stars out of 5 and it can be found on Amazon.com here: The Sentry: A Joe Pike Novel.
