The Two Minute Rule
Two minutes can be a lifetime. But break the two minute rule and it's a lifetime in jail. Ask anyone on the wrong side of the law about the two minute rule and they'll tell you that's as long as you can hope for at a robbery before the cops show up. But not everyone plays by the rules. When an aging ex-con finally gets out of jail, freedom doesn't taste too sweet. His son is gunned down in a drive-by shooting. It seems like a random crime, but when the victim is a cop - especially a cop with a con for a father - the motives are never simple. When the hit is exposed as a revenge killing, and the question of police corruption is raised, it becomes a father's last duty to clear his son's name and catch the killer. Gathering all the elements that have made Robert Crais one of the very best crime writers today, Two Minute Rule will grip and intrigue his legions of fans, and provide the perfect opportunity for new readers to discover the author who sets the standard when it comes to twisting plots and powerful characters.
