THE FIRST RULE, a new Joe Pike novel by Robert Crais, will be published this coming February. We loved THE WATCHMAN, Pike's first starring role, and we are chomping for this new one. Here's the blurb RC just sent his fans:
"Frank and Cindy Meyer had the American dream – until the day a professional robbery crew invaded their home and murdered everyone inside. The only thing out of the ordinary about Frank was that – before his family, business, and oh-so-normal life – a younger Frank Meyer worked as a professional mercenary . . . with a man named Joe Pike.
"Pike learns of the crime when the police question him. The same crew has done other home invasions, and all the targets have been criminals with large stashes of cash or drugs. The police believe the same is true of Frank, but Pike does not, and with the help of Elvis Cole, he sets out to clear his friend . . . and punish the people who murdered him.
"They won’t know what hit them.
"The first rule: Don’t make Pike mad."
RC will read an excerpt from THE FIRST RULE and sign his backlist in San Diego on Wednesday, July 15.
