From the author of The Last Detective and Hostage, comes a thriller featuring a father searching for vengeance in the City of Angels. But for an ex-con fresh on parole, finding answers in the corruption of the LAPD means asking for help from the person least expecting it: the FBI officer who put him away…

Every seasoned criminal knows the two minute rule: the two minutes before the cops show up at the scene of a robbery. Keeping the rule means changing your life, breaking it means a lifetime in jail. But not everyone plays by the rules…

When a decisive four minutes put Max Holman in prison, he spent the next decade planning one thing: reconciliation with his estranged son. Determined to put the past behind him, Max sets out on the morning of his parole only to discover his son, a cop, was gunned down in cold blood hours earlier. When the hit is exposed as a revenge killing, Max is determined to track down the murderer—at any cost.

From the author that sets the standard of gripping, edgy suspense, The Two Minute Rule delivers all the surprising plot twists and powerful characters that make Robert Crais one of the top crime writers today.


  • Such a good read

    By Giv10
    This book kept me on edge to the end. Crais develops his characters so well you can’t help hoping that things will go right for them. The storyline is so smoothly written you never see the twists coming until they’re happening. This was an excellent and compelling read. I can’t recommend this author enough.

    I was looking for something I could read briefly at night before bed, and this was perfect. Not too fast that it would keep me up all night finishing it, and not too slow. Great story twists!!
  • Great one again Crais.
