Elvis Cole and Joe Pike are joined by Suspect heroes LAPD K-9 Officer Scott James and his German shepherd, Maggie, in this heart-stopping thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robert Crais.
Elvis Cole and Joe Pike keep their promises. Even if it could get them killed...
Elvis Cole is hired to find a woman who’s disappeared, a seemingly ordinary case, until he learns the missing woman is an explosives expert and worked for a Defense Department contractor. Meanwhile, LAPD K-9 Officer Scott James and his patrol dog, Maggie, track a fugitive to a house filled with explosives—and a dead body. As the two cases intertwine, they all find themselves up against shadowy arms dealers and corrupt officials, and the very woman they promised to save may be the cause of their own deaths.


  • Terrific read

    Perhaps the best yet in the Elvis Cole series.
  • Not bad

    A weak plot
  • Maggie

    When I started this book, I said “if something happens to Maggie, I’m done with this series…”. No spoiler here.

    5 STARS!!!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Great story!!! Intense with edgy suspense! Characters were well developed. From Elvis Cole, Joe Pike...Jon Stone was new to me, but very valuable as a key player. Would like to read more of him. Maggie and Scott James added to the making of this iBook as, also, such a page turner mystery/thriller! I had read The Suspect first before this story. So, I already met and enjoyed this team of K-9 German Shepherd, Maggie and handler, Scott James! Am looking forward to reading more by Robert Crais! You are a fantastic author/writer!!! These books don’t have to be read in numerical order. Probably, would be more ideal to do so. But, each is and can be a stand-alone too. Which, I am I was introduced to one that was on sale. Robert—you are so worth the bigger price amount anytime!!! 🐰🐰🐰🐰🐰

  • For Suspense Fans & Dog Lovers

    One of the best books I've read in a long time! Loved all the twists and turns. I bought this at a discount since I've enjoyed other Cole novels but also b/c of the description involving Maggie the dog & it more than lived up to its promise!

    Another excellent Robert Craig thriller with Elvis Cole, Joe Pike, and new heroes Jon Stone, Scott James and Maggie, a police dog. Couldn't put it down.
