Publisher's Summary

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. Break the two minute rule and it's a lifetime in jail. But not everyone plays by the rules...When ex-con Max Holman finally gets out of jail, freedom doesn't taste too sweet. The only thing on his mind is reconciliation with his estranged son, who is, ironically, a cop. But then he hears the devastating news: His son and three other Los Angeles police officers were gunned down in cold blood the night before Holman's release. 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.With all the elements that have made Robert Crais one of the very best crime novelists today, The Two Minute Rule is gripping, edgy suspense from the author who sets the standard when it comes to surprising plot twists and powerful characters.

Not as good as some of his others

A few of the characters are well acted by the narrator but the book teeters between interesting detail and trite repetition. Not much humor, either, and the suspense is mediocre compared to other Crais books. The romance part was a stretch and it's fraught with stereotypes throughout. I listened to it straight on through over 2 nights and overall was disappointed. (sigh)

Excellent 'Who Done It'

The book starts out with the release of a bank robber from 10 years in prison. He hasn't seen his son since he was convicted, and is hoping he didn't follow in his father's footsteps.
The son turned out well, as a cop, but was murdered along with three other cops shortly before Holman's release. It becomes his quest to find out exactly what happened, since the police's case just doesn't add up for him. With the help of the FBI agent that arrested him, they find themselves in all kinds of conspiratorial trouble. The premise of the ex-agent helping the convict is a bit far fetched, but she does it reluctantly at first, then he draws her interest with facts she can't ignore. It's an interesting "who done it" with excellent narration that keeps the earbuds in .
