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.

    " One of my favorite Elvis/Joe tales ever. A vengeful killer looks for lost people and his boss's lost money, but it's Joe Pike and Elvis who get there first. I think the thing I loved the most about this one was the fact Mr. Joe Pike gets fooled in a way I won't discuss. The big man makes a big error. Loved it, right down to the final page. RC writes the way I like to read -- short, fast, and with energy. I say again, this is one of RC's very best to date. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Simon Gosden | 10/24/2013

    " Joe Pike, the one man army, in another crime thriller. This one involves a psychotic hit man and a Bolivian drug sting that goes badly wrong. High on body count but also good characterisations as Joe Pike and Elvis Cole solve this tough Californian mystery. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karin Wollina | 6/13/2012

    " I've read all Books by Robert Crais and loved them. Joe Pike is a different kind of hero than Elvis Cole. I really like it, that he seems to be more human with every new story. But I think he'll never get the girl, poor guy. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ron | 6/2/2012

    " Robert Crais is one of the best... up there with Michael Connelly. Here he deepens Joe Pike's character without taking away Pike's force-of-nature appeal. Excellent writing with a fair amount of unexpected twists. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dwight Ternes | 5/18/2012

    " Was a very quick read, but was more....mushy(?) than previous Pike/Cole novels. I didn't really like the direction the characters took in this book, but will still read future Crais works. "

    " Another book by Crais featuring his characters Joe Pike and Elvis Cole. Not as interesting as some of his others, but a good read with some twists and turns. "
