Joe Pike is out for revenge and no cop, no bad guy, no one alive, is going to stop him.

Frank Meyer had got out of 'the life' safely. He had put an end to his mercenary days, turned over a new leaf and settled down with his wife and children. It had been a hard decision but, encouraged by his boss and friend Joe Pike, he had walked away.

Ten years later, a group of armed men break into his Los Angeles home and brutally gun down him and his family. It's a vicious, cold and professional job. The crew leave no trace behind except the bodies.

But they have made one catastrophic, and almost certainly terminal, mistake - Joe Pike. Because Pike is now determined to hunt down and eliminate everyone involved in the attack, one by one. And it doesn't matter that, as he starts to investigate, he discovers that these criminals are bigger and better organised than he ever could have imagined, because they are about to learn the first rule:

Review:

A nerve-racking, switchbacking tale of guilt and redemption...so good it gives you goosebumps (EVENING STANDARD)

Ah, the twist. The twist gives the book heart, the twist made me cry at the end. The twist makes this a classic Robert Crais novel and a marvellous Joe Pike story ... this spare book with its emotionally reserved main character is one of the most moving novels I've read this year (Kristine Kathryn Rusch)

Crais just gets better and better . . . Crais's novels are as appealing as chocolate eclairs and just as satisfying. Trouble is, like cream cakes, I want to eat them all at once (INDEPENDENT ON SUNDAY)

Crais writes some of the snappiest procedurals coming out of the States (EVENING STANDARD)

An adrenaline rush of a novel that's got the laconic verve of Lee Child's thrillers and the plot surprises of Michael Connelly's mysteries (SmartMoney)

Crais once mroe proves himself to be one of the finest exponents of the genre in a gripping and complex story. (HUDDERSFIELD DAILY EXAMINER)
