Elvis Cole and Joe Pike are joined by SUSPECT heroes Scott James and his K-9 partner, Maggie, in the new masterpiece of suspense from the No.1 bestselling author.

Loyalty, commitment, the fight against injustice - these are the things that have always driven Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. If they make a promise, they keep it. Even if it could get them killed.

When Elvis Cole is hired to locate a woman who may have disappeared with a stranger she met online, it seems like an ordinary case - until Elvis learns the missing woman worked for a defence contractor and was being blackmailed to supply explosives components for a person or persons unknown.

Meanwhile, in another part of the city, LAPD officer Scott James and his patrol dog, Maggie, enter an abandoned building to locate an armed and dangerous thief, only to discover far more than they expected. The fugitive is dead, the building is filled with explosives, and Scott and Maggie are assaulted by a hidden man who escapes in the chaos, all as a bloodied Joe Pike watches from the shadows.

Soon, Scott and Maggie find themselves targeted by that man and, as their case intertwines with Elvis and Joe's, join forces to follow the trail of the missing woman as well. From inner-city drug traffickers to a shadowy group of Afghan war veterans with ties to a terrorist cell, the people they encounter on that trail add up to ever-increasing odds, and soon the four of them are fighting to find the woman not only before she is killed ... but before the same fate happens to one of them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Once again Crais has created a breathless thriller with an undercurrent of powerful emotion - and somehow made it seem easy' * EVENING STANDARD *
Through the sheer plausibility of his plotting and the deft characterisation of even the most minor characters, Crais delivers as satisfying an addition to the Cole/Pike canon as could be desired * IRISH INDEPENDENT *
'A Feat of good storytelling.' * SUNDAY BUSINESS POST *

“Showing promise...”

Delayed for a year due to extensive rewriting - the plot isn't quite what's written in the synopsis above - is Robert Crais' 20th novel worth the wait? Well...just about. He still writes the finest... More
