The Two Minute Rule

Taking a break from his popular series featuring detective Elvis Cole, Robert Crais introduces Max Holman, middle-aged ex-con and recovering addict who wants to turn his life around. Alas, the day he’s released from prison after a 10-year stretch, Holman hears that his son, a cop, has been murdered. Max doesn’t buy the sketchy police account, and — big surprise — decides to take matters into his own hands. The Two Minute Rule is a workmanlike thriller, with all the sleazy bit players, seedy digs, and relentless forward motion you expect from by-the-book L.A. noir.
