Thriller | Mystery
Tyler at first was a typical teenager, hanging out with his
friends Crystal and Alec. But Devon, Tyler's mother, is
concerned he has gotten involved with drugs as it seems that
Tyler has a load of cash.
But one day Tyler leaves the house and does not return.
Devon is very afraid, and she hires Elvis to find her son.
Devon needs to know Tyler is okay and just what he has
gotten himself into. Elvis Cole takes on the job and finds
that Tyler is not involved in drugs, but he is behind
several burglaries. Most of what they have been stealing is
computers and any other electronics they can find.
What Tyler doesn't realize is that they have stolen a
computer that someone wants back. Harvey and Stemms are
professional killers. They have been watching this little
group for a while. They need that computer back. They have
been following Alec, and finally, have caught up with him,
but since Alec is not talking they kill him.
Elvis finally finds Tyler and Crystal and explains to them
exactly what is going on. Elvis also calls in his partner
Joe to protect the kids and Devon. Elvis knows that time is
not on their side to try and find this computer and what
really is on it, so bad that people are willing to kill for it.
Robert Crais writes thrillers that suck you in with the way
he shows how much Elvis cares about the people that he works
for. Crais' story line shows how much a parent will go
through to protect her child and that Tyler was not about to
betray his friends until he has no other choice. THE WANTED
is a classic thriller you'll want to read.
Investigator Elvis Cole and his partner Joe Pike take on
the deadliest case of their lives in the new masterpiece of
suspense from #1 New York Times-bestselling author
It seemed like a simple case—before the bodies
started piling up...
When single-mother Devon Connor hires Elvis Cole, it’s
because her troubled teenage son Tyson is flashing cash and
she’s afraid he’s dealing drugs. But the truth is
devastatingly different. With two others, he’s been
responsible for a string of high-end burglaries, a crime
spree that takes a deadly turn when one of them is murdered
and Tyson and his girlfriend disappear.
They stole the wrong thing from the wrong man, and,
determined to get it back, he has hired two men who are
smart and brutal and the best at what they do.
To even the odds, Cole brings in his friend Joe Pike, but
even the two of them together may be overmatched. The police
don’t want them anywhere near the investigation, the
teenagers refuse to be found, and the hired killers are
leaving a trail of bodies in their wake. Pretty soon,
they’ll find out everything they need to know to track the
kids down—and then nothing that Elvis or Joe can do may make
any difference. It might even get them killed.
