Ask anyone on the wrong side of the law about the two minute rule and they’ll tell you that’s as long as you can hope for at a robbery before the cops show up. Break the two minute rule and it’s a lifetime in jail. But not everyone plays by the rules....

When ex-con Max Holman finally gets out of jail, freedom doesn’t taste too sweet. The only thing on his mind is reconciliation with his estranged son, who is, ironically, a cop. But then he hears the devastating news: His son and three other Los Angeles police officers were gunned down in cold blood the night before Holman’s release. When the hit is exposed as a revenge killing and the question of police corruption is raised, it becomes a father’s last duty to clear his son’s name and catch the killer. With all the elements that have made Robert Crais one of the very best crime novelists today, The Two Minute Rule is gripping, edgy suspense from the author who sets the standard when it comes to surprising plot twists and powerful characters.

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kathleen Brunnett | 2/3/2014

    " In searching for an author similar to Coban, a friend suggested this author. The story was captivating and kept me guessing. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Scott | 1/19/2014

    " A good beach read with a clever premise. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 1/16/2014

    " An entertaining and quick read from an author with whom I am not familiar. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Joy | 1/14/2014

    " A very good mystery. I will read more books by this author. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelly Stewart | 1/14/2014

    " Really enjoyed this one. It was short (215 pages) but the story was well-thought out and believable. The characters were human and easy to root for. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tami | 12/29/2013

    " This book was OK, I liked it. It kept me guessing to the end. I'm not sure I ever got very invested in the main characters though. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike | 12/22/2013

    " I really lliked this one until the ending, which I could have done a better job at. It was just so forced, like he was told to deliver the book immediately and had no time to polish it. However, you will grow to like the characters and hope that Max and Katherine show up together again. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Neb | 12/1/2013

    " A solid protagonist, well-written, and nicely defined supporting characters. The characters are all very believable, and the story is a nice, linear progression. It's almost like watching a movie, or one of those police procedural TV shows. Diverting...a good casual read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ab Juaner | 10/14/2013

    " it's liek watching a movie :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marianna | 10/14/2013

    " Love my murder mysteries and these take place in LA which makes them fun "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Randy | 9/5/2013

    " standalone thriller about a thief trying to go straight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Karen B | 8/22/2013

    " Loved this one right up to the last word. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jennifer | 10/22/2012

    " Brain candy. Good brain candy but it's still just empty calories at the end.... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jessica | 9/29/2012

    " This was probably 2.5 stars. It was a typical "action" book--unbelievable plot, kind of lame dialogue, too much swearing, but decent plot twists near the end. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mary | 1/25/2012

    " 3.5 I enjoyed this as the book progressed and the character becomes fixated on solving the murder of his estranged policeman son with the help of the female FBI agent who put him in jail for bank robbery. He is flawed, but likable and the odds are stacked against the ex-con. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 1/13/2012

    " A story of redemption, set in LA, as are many of his books. Involves bank robbery, and a former crook trying to clear the name of his son. Different than his LA cop series of books, which are quite good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Andrea | 12/10/2011

    " A real page-turner, marred by an overwritten main character and a "love" story with very little heat or passion to make it believable. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Andrew | 6/27/2011

    " This was my introduction to Robert Crais. I was entertained with the story, but I wouldn't go as far as to say that I enjoyed it. I think I will read more of his works before making a final decision. "

    " A former bank thief investigates the death of his son with a down on her luck former FBI agent. An entertaining read but the plot was not very believable. "
