“A good read about a father who is released from prison in the hope of a reunion with his son. Things don't go according to plan. Slightly predictable but enjoyable nonetheless”Annette S wrote this review Thursday, April 15, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Ex con just released from prison finds out his son L.A. cop was murdered. He tries to solve the puzzle of who did it with help from the FBI agent who arrested him. Money from a bank robbery involves the clues. Twist at end.”Marie S wrote this review Tuesday, March 2, 2010. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Well paced and good twist at the end. Going by the title, I thought it's going to be edge of the seat thriller about some bank robbery gone wrong, but instead I dont think there was any big connection to the title and the story line except for few mentions here and there..But having said that, it was still a very good read, just in a different way. ”Arun N wrote this review Wednesday, January 20, 2010.

“Another good book by Crais - full of suspense and very atmospheric. His books are always hard to put down.
Back Cover Blurb:
When Max Holman finally gets out of jail after ten years of thinking about his own botched bank raid, freedom quickly doesn't taste too sweet. At the moment of his release, the son that he had barely met is gunned down. And when the victim is a cop - especially a cop with a con for a father - the motives are never simple.
Katherine Pollard was an FBI special agent. Now struggling to look after two children on her own, the last thing she expects is for her old life to come calling.... ”
“Max Holman would have made it out of the bank he was robbing in under 2 minutes if he hadn't stopped to give CPR to a customer. Instead he spent 10 years in jail. When he is released he attempts to find his son who has become a LA cop but instead finds he and a group of his friends, also cops, have been gunned down. Not only was his son killed it appears he might have been a dirty cop. Max sets out to find the truth.”Candy wrote this review Tuesday, October 13, 2009.

“I have not read any Elvis Cole novels, but this is my second Crais book. I found this one had an interesting premise, and I enjoyed it. They only complaint I have about this and Demolition Angel is that Crais throws in a small love story for no reason. It really doesn't help the story out.

“This was one of my favorite Robert Crais's books. I liked the very flawed, but very human Holman and his dilemma was well portrayed. I would recommend this to anyone who likes a good suspenseful novel.”Pat Brown wrote this review Tuesday, February 24, 2009. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“Fast paced and easy to read, but a good and entertaining story. The ending didn't come as a surprise to me. Relaible Robert Crais.”Kevin L wrote this review Wednesday, December 17, 2008. ( reply | permalink ) Was this review helpful? Yes | No
“If you like airport fiction (i.e., mass market paperback) then it will be a perfectly fine novel. If you don't, then don't bother picking it up. There were definitely predictable plot and character developments, but that doesn't mean I didn't enjoy it anyway.”bumblebee47 wrote this review Tuesday, December 16, 2008.
