LoveReading View on The Watchman

If you like high octane, relentless and hard-boiled crime thrillers this is the book for you. Joe Pike is an ex police man turned mercenary with a conscience. As a favour to an old friend he agrees to protect a rich socialite who is a target after accidentally becoming a key witness in a federal drug and money laundering case. But everything is not as it seems; government agents aren’t telling the whole truth and contract killers follow their every step. Definitely a book to be read in a single sitting.

The Watchman Synopsis

After his acclaimed stand-alone bestseller, THE TWO MINUTE RULE, Robert Crais returns with the eagerly awaited new Elvis Cole and Joe Pike novel. For Elvis and Joe, two of the most beloved characters in crime fiction, the action is getting a little close to home. The dangerous and enigmatic Joe Pike has always defied close examination, but in this breathtaking new thriller, that's all about to change...

Joe Pike owes a bad man a big favour. And the favor is to protect the life of Larkin Conner Barkley, a spoiled rich girl who happens to be a federal witness in a case against the mob. When Pike and the girl come under intense fire, he hatches a plan: disappear into the anonymous underbelly of Los Angeles, turn the table, and hunt down the hunters.

Enlisting the help of Elvis Cole, Pike uncovers a web of lies and betrayals; even the cops aren't who they seem. But as the body count rises, it becomes clear that Pike's biggest threat may be the girl herself - a vapid soul determined to destroy herself, unless Joe can fill the void in her bruised heart.
