Product description

'Just keeps getting better and better' Evening Standard 

As addictive as Lee Child and as explosive as Michael Connelly - THE WANTED is the new thriller from Robert Crais, and a NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER 

Seventeen-year-old Tyson is a normal teenage boy - he's socially awkward, obsessed with video games, and always hungry. But his mother is worried that her sweet, nerdy son has started to change and she's just found a $40,000 Rolex watch under his bed. Suddenly very frightened that Tyson has gotten involved in something illegal, his mother gets in touch with a private investigator named Elvis Cole and asks him to do some digging. Cole uncovers a connection between Tyson and eighteen unsolved burglaries in LA's ritziest neighbourhood. Tyson spooks and runs. And then people start dying...

 Robert Crais's books have been published in a staggering 62 countries and are bestsellers around the world. He began his career writing for classic crime and police shows like Hill Street Blues, Cagney & Lacey, Miami Vice and LA Law. He is a Grand Master of the Mystery Writers of America.

'Far and away the most satisfying private eye novel in years. Grab this one - it's a winner!'-Lawrence Block on The Monkey's Raincoat
'Taken is intense and fast-paced and reads like a big-budget Hollywood blockbuster!'-CNN 
'A tale of one man's bare-knuckled search for redemption. Like the best L.A. noir writers, Crais nudges the mystery genre into higher gear, tackling grand themes in exceedingly personal ways through flawed heroes and hard-to-spot villains'- LA Times Book Review on The Two Minute Rule
