Ask anyone on the wrong side of the law about the two minute rule and theyll tell you thats as long as you can hope for at a robbery before the cops show up. Break the two minute rule and its a lifetime in jail. But not everyone plays by the rules When ex-con Max Holman finally gets out of jail, freedom doesnt taste too sweet. The only thing on his mind is reconciliation with his estranged son, who is, ironically, a cop. But then he hears the devastating news: His son and three other Los Angeles police officers were gunned down in cold blood the night before Holmans release. When the hit is exposed as a revenge killing and the question of police corruption is raised, it becomes a fathers last duty to clear his sons name and catch the killer. With all the elements that have made Robert Crais one of the very best crime novelists today, The Two Minute Rule is gripping, edgy suspense from the author who sets the standard when it comes to surprising plot twists and powerful characters.
