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, The 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.

Robert Crais in top form

by robroy on Mar 11, 2010

I have to say that this is possibly my favorite Robert Crais book (even though at first I was disappointed to find that it did not involve Elvis and Joe). Max Holman turned out to be such a sympathetic character, that I could barely wait to find out if he would succeed at turning his life around, after wasting his young years as a "wild child". The loss of his son just as Max is being released from prison, hoping to start some kind of relationship with the young man, is immensely poignant. It almost seems that it would be impossible for him to turn his back on the too-easy slide back into drugs, drink and criminal behavior. How he solves his son's murder, and the clever way he arranges for the unveiling of the unsuspected evil-doer, makes for a gripping read. Oh, and the growing affection between him and former FBI special agent Katherine Pollard didn't hurt, either. This is a terrific book!
