Pretty jump start, and for what it was, genre male detective, i give it a 2-3. it's cliche cookie cutter plot collapses with out any sex. like these guys who know how to paralyse a sap with their thmb never ever got laid before. and wound not touch this rich billionaire's daughter beauty, even when she offers herself. and sincerely with restraint after being "saved."

so the end is crushed with that dull-out.
what about her as a partner on next show.
to waste that grrrl is a shame. his characters are OK, if even too stupid or basic for real life.

dumb billionaires abound i'm sure, but not this dumb.
it's best quality is it is a quick read: gracias y adios.

Staccato style. Fast paced and interesting. Written by a man for men.

Thriller, involving the FBI and a witness to an accident. It gets more deeply involved when a ex-marine is hire to protect the witness all on their own from cartels and maybe their own?

This is my favorite Robert Crais book and that's saying alot since I love them all. Joe Pike breaks the mold of the strong, silent type fighting for the underdog, to help do the right thing.

The action starts on page 1 and doesn't let up until the last page.

This is a yearly read for me-I hope Crais can give his readers more books in the near future.

The book's full of action, no doubt about that. But this Pike character ( as well as his buddy Cole) is just out of this world. I mean, we have Superman and then we have Pike/Cole. I know it's just a novel, but still these guys should have some weaknesses. All in all, a good novel and a fast read, even if quite incredible.

This novel has been the most memorable Crais book. I prefer the Joe Pike character best.

I found this book very disappointing, considering I'm a fan of the author
