From the Publisher
Annotation Robert Crais puts his hardboiled ex-cop Joe Pike at the center of the action in his latest pulse-pounding thriller, THE WATCHMAN. Pike has been asked to protect Larkin Barkley, a poor-little-rich-girl heiress turned government witness. Larkin witnessed a crime that has made her the target of some ruthless and powerful people, and Pike must do what he can to keep her safe--a difficult task, when he isn't sure who to trust. Crais has the action move at a breakneck pace, with some surpising twists and turns that will likely keep readers on their toes.
Editors Note 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 Barkley 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.... Max Holman knew the two minute rule: Get in, get the cash, and get out. But two minutes can be a lifetime. In one moment of weakness he botched a bank job and was sent away for years. Now released from prison, Max wants to reconcile with his estranged son, an L.A. cop. Instead he receives the devastating news that his son’s been gunned down in cold blood. To uncover the truth about the killing, Max aligns with Katherine Pollard, the ex-FBI agent who put him away—in a father’s search for justice and revenge.
