Investigator Elvis Cole and his partner Joe Pike take on the deadliest case of their lives in the new masterpiece of suspense from #1 New York Times-bestselling author Robert Crais.

It seemed like a simple case—before the bodies started piling up...
When single-mother Devon Connor hires Elvis Cole, it’s because her troubled teenage son Tyson is flashing cash and she’s afraid he’s dealing drugs. But the truth is devastatingly different. With two others, he’s been responsible for a string of high-end burglaries, a crime spree that takes a deadly turn when one of them is murdered and Tyson and his girlfriend disappear.

They stole the wrong thing from the wrong man, and, determined to get it back, he has hired two men who are smart and brutal and the best at what they do.

To even the odds, Cole brings in his friend Joe Pike, but even the two of them together may be overmatched. The police don’t want them anywhere near the investigation, the teenagers refuse to be found, and the hired killers are leaving a trail of bodies in their wake. Pretty soon, they’ll find out everything they need to know to track the kids down—and then nothing that Elvis or Joe can do may make any difference. It might even get them killed.

    I started reading this book on my IPhone. I then changed to my iPad beginning chapter 6. My iPad kept saying weird messages that there was a problem with the payment. This book was purchased Sept 30, Order #MN300052T3 and Document #160229474464. When I went back to my iPhone and started reading the book I then started getting the messages on it. I had to stop the card I had on file with Itunes for another reason but this purchase was made 15 days before I stopped the card. When I go to the purchase page it tells me my book is in the cloud. I don’t know where else to complain about this problem. I don’t want to purchase it again but I want to read the book. I’ve read all the others and have loved this series.
  • Another HIT!

  • Long wait but worth it

    Another well written, fast paced Cole & Pike novel. Great story line with interesting characters. I’m always excited when I see a new Cole & Pike release. I push the button to order it and then am afraid to start reading it, knowing that in a couple of days I’ll finish the last page and then it is back to waiting anxiously for his next book.

    I begin each Crais book expecting to be slightly disappointed. Surely this one won't be a great as the last. No, this one isn't as great as the's better.

    Reading doesn’t get any better than this. Until the next one.

    First time reader and was very happy with the book. Going to read another one of his books!
  • Fast-paced, but not his best

    By Andie307
    Robert Crais delivers a fast-paced, page-turner that I couldn’t put down. It was good to have Elvis and Pike back together again. But it was too short, didn’t really go all that deep, and then ending left me wanting more. I hope his next one features Pike more and is more substantial.
