'Outstanding . . . Crais begins the story with deceptive simplicity but slowly ratchets up both the tension and the action with surgical precision . . . This one's sure to hit the bestseller charts' Publishers Weekly (starred review) Joe Pike didn't want to run into trouble that day – he was just going to the bank. But when Isabel, a young teller, is forced into a car by two men, he has no choice but to step in. After chasing them down, he retrieves the terrified woman and the men are arrested Not long after they are released on bail, the men are found dead, each with a single gunshot wound to the head, and Isabel is missing. After his handling of the men, Pike is a prime suspect, along with Izzy – was this an abduction gone wrong, or did it go exactly how she planned? Pike, convinced that her life is in danger, involves Elvis Cole in a search for the truth, and for Izzy. But they're not the only ones desperate to find her – and desperate men are dangerous. Praise for A Dangerous Man and Robert Crais 'Crais is a whip-smart writer. Cole and Pike are carefully drawn, multilayered characters who've grown more complex through the years. This is one of the very best entries in a long-running and still first-rate series' Booklist on A Dangerous Man (starred review) 'If you've always wished Lee Child's Jack Reacher had a little more balance in his life - but the same formidable talents - you'll love Joe Pike and the latest book in this long, superb series . . . Crais never loses control of his clean, clear prose or his ability to sketch fully fleshed characters in a few scenes . . . A taut, exceptional thriller' Kirkus on A Dangerous Man (starred review) ‘[Crais] expertly delivers his customary modern-day riff on the 1940s hardboiled idiom' Guardian ‘Another rewarding page-turner by one of the most reliable storytellers in modern crime fiction' Daily Mail ‘Cleverly plotted, stylishly written' Washington Post
