The First Rule Summary

The First Rule by Robert Crais

Joe Pike and his partner Elvis Cole must solve the murder of an old friend and his entire family in this gripping thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Robert Crais.

When Frank Meyer and his family are executed during a home invasion, the police begin investigating the secret life they're sure Meyer had. Joe Pike's on a hunt of his own: to clear his friend's name, and to punish the people who murdered him. What starts out as a simple trail gets twisted fast by old grudges, double crosses, blood vengeance, and a crime so terrible even Pike and his partner Elvis Cole have no way to measure it.

The First Rule Reviews

Is it possible for a crime novel to be both ultra-violent and elegant? If so, then The First Rule is a prime example. The mayhem is graphic and unflinching, but the prose and story line are as sleek and efficient as a beautifully crafted piece of machinery.-The Seattle Times

[The First Rule] will satisfy longtime fans and make new ones...well-written action sequences and snappy dialogue.-Los Angeles Times

Crais follows a straightforward, no-nonsense tradition that marks him as a direct descendant of Raymond Chandler.-Pittsburg Tribune-Review

A devastatingly effective thriller.-The Providence Journal

Adrenaline-fueled...Pike emerges as an enigmatically appealing hero, whose lethal skills never overshadow his unflappable sense of morality.-Publishers Weekly

Crais plants each twist carefully and detonates it expertly...Righteous vengeance, a reckless pace, astratospheric body count, and just enough surprises to keep you turning the pages.-Kirkus Reviews
