In The Watchman and The First Rule, Robert Crais put Joe Pike front and center for the first time, to remarkable effect: “A beautifully crafted piece of story-telling” (The Seattle Times); “A high-octane thriller... Pike’s unshakable belief in right and wrong provides a moral center” (South Florida Sun-Sentinel); “Joe Pike is a joy to watch, an urban Zen warrior priest righting wrongs. More Pike, please” (Chicago Sun-Times). But when Joe Pike does return, it is to a case that will rock him to his core. Five years ago, Dru Rayne and her uncle fled from Louisiana to Los Angeles after Hurricane Katrina hit, but now they face a different kind of danger. A neighborhood protection gang savagely beats Dru’s uncle, but Pike witnesses it and offers his own brand of protection. Oddly enough, neither of them seems to want it — and neither do the federal agents mysteriously watching their storefront, men who appear quite willing to let the gang have its way. None of that deters Pike — there’s something about Dru that touches him and he won’t back away, whether she wants his help or not — but as the level of violence escalates, and Pike himself becomes a target, he and Elvis Cole begin to discover some things. Dru and her uncle are not who they seem, and everything Pike thought he knew about them, their relationship to the gang, and the reasons they fled New Orleans — it’s all been lies. A vengeful and murderous force is catching up to them... and it’s perfectly happy to sweep Pike and Cole up in its wake. Download and start listening now!

    " Good escapism - read it a day in bed with the flu! Lots of interwoven stuff - but then some people killed in a sentence (clue - the FBI man!) "

    " Carol K. says, Robert Crais just keeps getting better and as much as I miss Elvis Cole, these Joe Pike stories are wonderful. Although Pike's past is clouded with some nefarious acts, his humanity and morality are displayed in The Sentry as he becomes involved with two people who he thinks need his help and protection. Add the FBI, the LAPD and a demented and vicious killer and you have a rip-roaring story that you can't put down "

    " I've read many of this author's books and liked them all in varying degrees, mostly with Elvis Cole, who is in a funk at the beginning of this story and doesn't come in until way later. I think this is the 1st one I read with with Joe Pike as the primary. Joe Pike reminds me of the popular Jack Reacher, played by Tom cruise. Anyhow, Pike gets mixed up in intrigue just trying to be a good citizen. Things don't quite look right and he looks into them and begins to follow a trail. I thought the good citizen thing was just a prelude to introduce the character of Pike to readers but not so. The people he helps are definitely not who they appear to be and as his investigation widens he discovers a cruel world of contract killers, false IDs, dirty cops, Ecudorian drug dealers, Mex. mafia, kidnappings, so you are kept wondering what is going on. Good stuff. "

    " Start from the beginning and introduce yourself the Elvis Cole and his best friend Joe Pike. If you enjoy the outlaw detective, with humor and wit, you will not stop reading until you are waiting for the next one. I am!! "
