An excellent job of balancing suspense with intriguing peeks into Pike's past, peeling some of the layers of mystery away from this enigmatic character. Great action, balanced with tenderness. I've enjoyed the author's Elvis Cole series, and look forward to many more Joe Pike novels.

This book delves into the character of Joe Pike. It's probably one of the best books by Crais that I've read. While we know why Cole likes having Pike around, this is the first book that gives insight into why Pike likes Cole so much -- which I appreciate finding out.

When I ordered this title as an audiobook I wasn't sure that I would like it but I found myself drawn into the story. I was listening to it while I painted a room and soom found myself staying up to finish it.
I really liked it. The narrator sounds so serious but that was because one of the lead characters is so very serious about his job of protecting the daughter of a wealthy man. Again, I wasn't sure at first that I would keep listening but I did.......

I love this style of writing -- unfolding the story step by step in a way that makes you want to continue reading chapter after chapter. Joe Pike is a mercenary hero, very similar to Jack Reacher (Lee Child's hero) - tough, spirited, and VERY capable.
