THE WATCHMAN
RAVES FROM AROUND THE WORLD!

"Packed with whiplash plot twists and taut dialogue, Crais' latest deftly reveals the taciturn, damaged Joe Pike. THE WATCHMAN is as good a psychological test case as it is a thriller."
-Entertainment Weekly

"Fans of the Elvis Cole series have long wished for an installment focusing on sidekick Pike, and their wish is more than granted with this stunningly emotional thriller."
- Booklist - Starred Review

Joe Pike, the intriguing, enigmatic partner of L.A. PI Elvis Cole, takes center stage in this intense thriller from bestseller Crais (The Two Minute Rule). To pay back an old debt, Pike is coerced into protecting Larkin Barkley, a hard-partying young heiress whose life is in danger after a "wrong place wrong time" encounter that quickly escalates and spins out of control. The enemy is shadowy, violent and relentlessóbut the fierce, focused Pike, one of the strongest characters in modern crime fiction, is equal to the challenge. The breathless pace and rich styling are sure to appeal to readers of hard-boiled fiction in general..."
