I found this to be a thoroughly enjoyable read ... not one to read before bed if one wants to actually sleep, though!! The only parts for which I didn't particularly care were those chapters devoted to Ben's (the little kidnapped boy) perspective of his situation. I get why they're included but for me they're unnecessary in order to move the plot forward.

A great story with a breathless, frantic conclusion.

I was introduced to Robert Crais by reading a couple of his more recent novels. I went back and started the Elvis Cole and Joe Pike series. I found this novel to be very informative as the characters of Cole and Pike. I enjoyed the book very much.

Enough background to make this a standalone novel. Too much for one in this series, but I really enjoyed this one. As I have this whole series. Well worth the read.

I really enjoyed this book, almost to the point I couldn't put it down. The end was a bit anticlimatic but the rest of the book was pretty good
