A brilliant new crime novel from the beloved, bestselling, and award-winning master of the genre--and Joe Pike's most perilous case to date.
Joe Pike didn't expect to rescue a woman that day. He went to the bank same as anyone goes to the bank, and returned to his Jeep. So when Isabel Roland, the lonely young teller who helped him, steps out of the bank on her way to lunch, Joe is on hand when two men abduct her. Joe chases them down, and the two men are arrested. But instead of putting the drama to bed, the arrests are only the beginning of the trouble for Joe and Izzy.
After posting bail, the two abductors are murdered and Izzy disappears. Pike calls on his friend, Elvis Cole, to help learn the truth. What Elvis uncovers is a twisted family story that involves corporate whistleblowing, huge amounts of cash, the Witness Relocation Program, and a long line of lies. But what of all that did Izzy know? Is she a perpetrator or a victim? And how far will Joe go to find out?
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Mystery veteran Robert Crais unleashes the renegade Los Angeles crime-fighting duo Cole and Pike on their most high-stakes case yet. When maverick paramilitary contractor Joe Pike interrupts the attempted abduction of a bank teller in broad daylight, his save-the-day instincts immediately kick in. Soon Pike and his best friend, canny private investigator Elvis Cole, are facing down a ruthless L.A. crime syndicate that suspects the teller is heir to a huge sum of dirty cash. Propelled by Crais’ grimy wit and whip-smart plotting, A Dangerous Man is a good old-fashioned potboiler that crackles with tough-guy energy.

Love the characters
But the book was way too short!
A Dangerous Man
As always, Robert Crais comes through with great suspense. I look forward to the next book in the Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series. A great summer read that I couldn’t put down.
