Joe Pike--the ex-cop, ex-Marine, ex- mercenary from Robert Crais's superb P.I. Elvis Cole novels--headlines the explosive action of this page-turning New York Times bestseller.
A wild-living young heiress slams into trouble in the L.A. night--the kind of trouble even her money can't shut down. After her Aston Martin collides with a mysterious car, Larkin Conner Barkley attempts to help the accident victims--and becomes the sole witness in a federal investigation. Whisking her out of her Beverly Hills world is Joe Pike, hired to shield Larkin from a relentless team of killers. But when a chain of lies and betrayals tightens around them, Pike drops off the grid and follows his own rules for survival: strike fast, hit hard, hunt down the hunters. . . .
This is #1 in Joe Pike series.
