Seventeen-year-old Tyson is a normal teenaged boy - he's socially awkward, obsessed with video games, and always hungry. But his mother is worried that her sweet, nerdy son has started to change... and she's just found a $40,000 Rolex watch under his bed.

Suddenly very frightened that Tyson has gotten involved in something illegal, his mother gets in touch with a private investigator named Elvis Cole and asks him to do some digging.

Cole uncovers a connection between Tyson and eighteen unsolved burglaries in LA's ritziest neighbourhood. Tyson spooks and runs.

And then people start dying...

Okay, it’s time to own up: I’ve been too lenient on Robert Crais for a while now, and things are not improving. Around the early 2000s he produced a stellar run of novels – L.A. Requiem, Demolition Angel, Hostage,... More
