This is a nicely paced book which keeps moving even though we are given a good deal of flashback information about Elvis Cole's childhood abandonment. Crais knows how to craft a plot and use it to reveal character on the fly. It does seem to me, however, that he has pretty much exhausted some of his supporting characters at this point and needs to shake things up in a major way if he continues with Cole's story.
Still, this is a good read. It develops honestly, giving you all the information you have a right to expect along the way and then delivering a surprising revelation about how it all fits together.
I particularly like the way Crais combines first and third person narrative. He keeps all the threads of the story developing in parallel and ties the knot artfully at the end.

What made the experience of listening to The Forgotten Man the most enjoyable?
In a world where Face-to-Face Friendships is all but lost, the human connection between Cole and Pike makes the adventure believeable. Knowing someone has Cole's back kept me reading
Who was your favorite character and why?
Pike. When I grow up, I want to be like him or know someone like him.
What does James Daniels bring to the story that you wouldn???t experience if you just read the book?
Feeling. Audible listening is all about the "Reader". Daniels does a great job.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes, many days I would sit in my truck in my drive-way after getting home, just listening.
Any additional comments?
My first Cole/ Pike book was "Taken". Now I'm Hooked on series. Thanx, Robert
