The Two Minute Rule

By Robert Crais

This book shows just how long or short this time span can be, depending on your standpoint. 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 policeman – especially a policeman 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.

Crais is a master of dialogue and the plot is full of surprises. It’s a nerve wracking tale of guilt and redemption that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Available in paperback at 11 euros.
