Publisher Comments:

Joe Pike — the ex-cop, ex-Marine, exmercenary from Robert Crais's superb PI Elvis Cole novels — headlines the explosive action of this page-turning New York Times bestseller.

A wild-living young heiress slams into trouble in the L.A. night — the kind of trouble even her money can't shut down. After her Aston Martin collides with a mysterious car, Larkin Conner Barkley attempts to help the accident victims — and becomes the sole witness in a federal investigation. Whisking her out of her Beverly Hills world is Joe Pike, hired to shield Larkin Barkley from a relentless team of killers. But when a chain of lies and betrayals tightens around them, Pike drops off the grid and follows his own rules for survival: strike fast, hit hard, hunt down the hunters....

Edward Hahn, May 31, 2011 (view all comments by Edward Hahn)
I've always enjoyed Crais' Elvis Cole Novels but felt he got off the track with Demolition Angel, a non-Cole story. Well, he's back in spades with this effort and the "Two Minute Rule."

Cole does have a supporting role in this story but it's mostly about Pike, the enigmatic hard-ass. The reader learns about his childhood, why he left the LAPD, and his mercenary work in Africa. Turns out he's an idealist but I surely would not want to get on the wrong side of his ideals.

The book starts fast and accelerates, involving drugs, terrorism, embezzlement, father-daughter problems, kidnapping, murder and other assorted exciting stuff.

One of those "I couldn't put it down" stories that Crais is so good at.
