Summary
THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

Investigator Elvis Cole and his partner Joe Pike take on the deadliest case of their lives in the new masterpiece of suspense from #1 New York Times -bestselling author Robert Crais.

It seemed like a simple case--before the bodies started piling up...

When single-mother Devon Connor hires Elvis Cole, it's because her troubled teenage son Tyson is flashing cash and she's afraid he's dealing drugs. But the truth is devastatingly different. With two others, he's been responsible for a string of high-end burglaries, a crime spree that takes a deadly turn when one of them is murdered and Tyson and his girlfriend disappear.

They stole the wrong thing from the wrong man, and, determined to get it back, he has hired two men who are smart and brutal and the best at what they do.

To even the odds, Cole brings in his friend Joe Pike, but even the two of them together may be overmatched. The police don't want them anywhere near the investigation, the teenagers refuse to be found, and the hired killers are leaving a trail of bodies in their wake. Pretty soon, they'll find out everything they need to know to track the kids down--and then nothing that Elvis or Joe can do may make any difference. It might even get them killed.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "*Starred Review* Devon Connor's 17-year-old son, Tyson, suddenly seems flush with cash and sporting what appears to be a Rolex. Devon is worried that Tyson may be dealing drugs and hires PI Elvis Cole to find out. Meanwhile, Harvey and Stemms, deadly criminals for hire, are looking for a laptop with incriminating evidence about a murder committed by an extraordinarily wealthy Southern California family. In short order, Cole learns that the Rolex is part of the haul Tyson and two friends made in a series of robberies. The laptop was one of many the teenage criminals stole. With Tyson on the run, Harvey and Stemms inch ever closer leaving carnage in their wake to finding the teen and his partners. Lurking in the shadows and covering Elvis' back is his buddy Joe Pike, who, on a scale of dangerous guys, makes Harvey and Stemms look like the Bobbsey twins. Crais, who has a Grandmaster Award from the Mystery Writers of America, always delivers riveting crime fiction while somehow offering something unique in every novel. Here it's the surprisingly interesting, Tarantino-like conversations between Harvey and Stemms as they plan their next deadly steps. More fantastic reading from a perennial A-lister who belongs on every crime fan's TBR list.--Lukowsky, Wes Copyright 2017 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In bestseller Crais's taut 17th thriller to feature L.A. PI Elvis Cole and his cryptic sidekick, Joe Pike (after 2015's The Promise), frantic mom Devin Connor hires Elvis to find out why her teenage son, Tyson, has a mountain of expensive clothing, cash, and a $40,000 Rolex hidden in his bedroom. It turns out that Tyson is part of a trio that has robbed 18 homes. But before Tyson can agree to surrender himself, co-robber Alec turns up dead-a victim of Harvey and Stemms, two eccentric hit men. They know the kids have stolen a laptop coded with valuable information and will joyfully kill to recover it. Panicked, Tyson goes off the grid with his girlfriend and fellow thief, Amber. Now Elvis, aided by the implacable Pike, must find the teens before Harvey and Stemms do. The empathic Elvis takes center stage, with just enough hard-boiled Pike to season the mayhem. The plot isn't Crais's most inventive, but it's still expertly crafted. Agent: Aaron Priest, Aaron M. Priest Literary Agency. (Dec.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
