Private investigators Joe Pike and Elvis Cole get double-crossed in this twisty, gripping New York Times bestseller that will have readers on the edge of their seats.

When gangbangers shake down the modest owner of a Los Angeles eatery, Joe Pike intervenes. For all intents and purposes, Pike saved Wilson Smith's life. But for reasons of their own, Smith and his lovely niece, Dru, are curiously resentful. It's only when Pike's feelings for the woman deepen that he and his partner, Elvis Cole, discover that Dru and her uncle are not at all who they seem, and everything Pike has learned about them is a lie. But it's much more than a deception. It's a trap. And with every new twist it's proving to be a killer.

    This is classic Crais. You like Cole and Pike? Enough said.
  • Not his best

    The K-9 addition where chapters are devoted to what the dog is thinking is too much. Bring back Elvis Cole and Joe Pike! I like dogs....but the idea we know how and what they think is boring and the text could be shortened considerably.

    A great read. True page turner. I had to put it aside several times because I did not want it to end. Talk about keeping me on the edge of my chair. Wow.

    Fast paced and typical page turner by Robert Crais. More Pike than Cole which gives you more information of the Joe Pike character. Easy read but lots of characters.

    Great read bringing together Pike and Cole facing an insane and sinister adversary. Crais delivers one of best action thrillers to date.

    It took me a while to get into the book; it could have been a little shorter. entertaining but not much substance.
  • Joe Pike is great!
