The great part about Robert Crais' work is that it is always an interesting read. Like others, I wish he was even more prolific. This is almost like reading a screenplay- plot driven, little dialogue, lots of action. And, like any action movie, it is over too soon. It took me less than a day to read, and now I have to wait for another 6 months to a year to do it all over again. It is always worth the wait.
