Robert Crais -- The Forgotten Man

New word out yesterday on Robert Crais' The Forgotten Man, the next book in the Elvis Cole series. (Thanks to Sarah for the tip.)

Both the U.S. and U.K. versions will be out on February 15, 2005. It has already been chosen as a main selection for both the Book-of-the-Month Club and the Mystery Guild.

(Nice bonus for the fans: Crais himself will be recording the abridged audio version.)

The last book in the series (The Last Detective) was just okay, although the one before that (L.A. Requiem) was extraordinary.

After all the uncertainty with Crais' career over the past few years, it will be interesting to see what happens with this one.
