Leslie hosted. Yellowtail Merlot and Pino Grigio? with the quiche and crackers + Jana’s rhubarb, veggies, and dip went with the more serious Elvis Cole, and Joe Pike story. Robert Crais has found his mealticket big time. His writing is developing, and we liked his characters even if Joe is a bit superhuman. The main characters are looking for relationships, and the difficulties are many. Some stories are plot, others are feelings, and Crais is blending the difficulties of law enforcement with relationships, and that’s why he is emerging into a better writer.He will get better if he keeps trying to get both those areas covered. He can get dreamily sentimental, but that’s the way we feel at times.
