'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 teenaged 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' 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. * * * PRAISE for THE WANTED * * * 'Cleverly plotted, stylishly written... another rewarding page-turner by one of the most reliable storytellers in modern crime fiction' Washington Post 'Los Angeles ace Crais extends his streak of sharp, enjoyable thrillers' Kirkus 'Gripping...
