DESPERATE MEN ARE DANGEROUS . . .
Joe Pike wasn’t looking to save someone’s life on the day he left the bank. But when he saw Isabel, a young teller, being forced into a car by two men, he had no choice but to chase them down.
Not long after being released on bail, the men are found dead 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?
Convinced that her life is in danger, Pike 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.
As explosive as Michael Connelly and as addictive as Lee Child, A Dangerous ManÂ has ‘the smoothest writing and best storytelling you’ll ever read’ (DAVID BALDACCI)
*THE NEW COLE AND PIKE THRILLER*
Why Crais is the King of Crime . . .
‘Bob is like a Porsche when it comes to writing. Indeed, it’s quite fitting that he drives that model of car. Like the Porsche, his writing is elegant, stylish, funny, can fire on turbos when need be and dive deep when the plot demands it, but this is far and away some of the smoothest writing and best storytelling you’ll ever read.Â He’s written a lot of books, but just keeps getting better and better’Â DAVID BALDACCIÂ
‘[Crais] expertly delivers his customary modern-day riff on the 1940s hardboiled idiom’ Guardian
‘Outstanding . . .Â 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’Â Publishers WeeklyÂ (starred review)
‘Another rewarding page-turner by one of the most reliable storytellers in modern crime fiction’ Daily Mail
‘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‘Â Booklist onÂ A Dangerous ManÂ (starred review)
‘Cleverly plotted, stylishly written‘ Washington Post
‘If you’ve always wishedÂ 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‘Â Kirkus on A Dangerous ManÂ (starred review)
