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....

I am an entertainer...so I spend a lot of time on the road. I take my audio seriously. I appreciate great writing and outstanding narration.
One of the more enigmatic characters, Joe Pike is delightful in this fascinating mystery. It's compelling. I really enjoyed listening to this story and the masterful narrator.
Crais books make me feel like I am watching them unfold as opposed to watching them unfold from a character's perspective. Very different tone. Highly recommended.
I love the series, well written and I really like the characters in the books, I just wish they had used William Roberts for the whole series as for me his voice is perfect as Elvis Cole. I've skipped a couple of books because of this.
The characters are really compelling
When Pike names the baby
His voice is old detective stories it transports you
Some rules are against humanity
"Worst narration-can't bear to hear 1 more word"
The narrator reads the story as if every single word is in capital lettes and needs to be shouted. I tried turning down the volume in the vain hope it would help. It didn't. It's like listening to some 1950's melodramatic narrator warning the populace about the dangers of communism, rickets or left-wing thinking. This has really put me off Robert Crais' audibooks... I'm so fed up with buying audiobooks by authors I really like and having them ruined by bad narrators. Don't these authors have any control over who reads their books? Don't they care?
