Well. I have now read Watchmen, the graphic novel, and Watchman, the spy novel that I think was by Ian Rankin, and now I have read The Watchman. Naturally, I will have to search for a book called Watchdog.

I wish the New York Times would describe me as taut and muscular, but I guess I will have to settle for reading books that merit that description. (I suppose today's fifteen minutes of yardwork were not enough.)

I enjoyed this book very much. It moves fast, and Pike and Cole are well-developed characters. The heiress, Larkin Barkley, was not as interesting, but she is a new character, and I thought she was pretty well-rounded by the end. (I didn't like her name, though. I kept thinking of her as LarkBark.)

I like Elvis Cole, and I REALLY like Joe Pike. Thank goodness my friend Jan has given me more Robert Crais books.
