The 10th Elvis Cole novel earns well above average praise from most critics. In the series' latest, Crais develops one of his most complex characters yet by expanding on the detective's painful childhood. But The Forgotten Man does have flaws, especially in comparison to the earlier, and stronger, Cole novels. "All the elements are present to make another thrilling Crais mystery," writes the Chicago Sun-Times, "but the spark ... is missing." In other words, longtime fans will appreciate this quick-paced and gritty mystery thriller, but newcomers should stick to previous Cole installments.
