Mysterious Thoughts on a Thursday
March 20, 2013
Thursday’s Mystery Book Club discussed The Watchman by Robert Crais. This is the first book in Crais’ Joe Pike series. For years Pike was Cole’s sidekick in Crais’ popular Elvis Cole series, and in 2007, he gave Pike his own series. In this one, Pike is hired to look after a spoiled rich girl, Larkin, who saw the wrong man running from an accident scene and now has someone trying to kill her. So why does someone want Larkin dead? What’s so important about the accident? Who’s the inside leak?
This book is your typical action thriller. It does move along at a good pace and is enjoyable. Those in the group who’ve read Crais before were willing to read this again. Overall the group gave this one 3.5-4 magnifying glasses out of 5.
1. The Watchman (2007)
2. The First Rule (2010)
3. The Sentry (2011)
4. Taken (2012)
