Taken Summary

Taken by Robert Crais

When Nita Morales hires Elvis Cole to find her missing adult daughter, she isn't afraid, even though she's gotten a phone call asking for ransom. She knows it's a fake, that her daughter is off with the guy Nita will only call "that boy", and that they need money: "Even smart girls do stupid things when they think a boy loves them." But she is wrong. The girl and her boyfriend have been taken by bajadores - bandits who prey on other bandits, border professionals who prey not only on innocent victims, but on each other. They steal drugs, guns, and people - buying and selling victims like commodities, and killing the ones they can't get a price for. Cole and Pike find the spot where they were taken. There are tire tracks, bullet casings, and bloodstains. They know things look as bad as possible. But they are wrong, too. It is about to get much worse. Going undercover to find the two young people and buy them back, Cole himself is taken, and disappears. Now it is up to Joe Pike to retrace Cole's steps, burning through the hard and murderous world of human traffickers to find his friend. But he may already be too late.

Taken Reviews

"The ensuing chase and bloodbath will leave you in shock and awe but Chapter 33, in which Pike simply cleans a gun under the watchful eyes of Cole's furious cat, demonstrates more succinctly what a brilliant writer Crais has become." -- Mark Sanderson EVENING STANDARD 20120628 Wowee, what a thrill ride. It's a blast, with more action and suspense than all three Bourne films rolled into one. PETERBROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH 20120428 'Taken' is the best Crais book I have read for some time and I had to read it in one sitting ...a fast pace book filled with great characters, that is very well written and comes highly recommended. CRIMESQUAD 20120521 A gripping storyline, engaging and enthusiastic characters, a tight plot and action to die for, this is one hell of an entertaining read; perhaps more importantly this is a fun read. Jam packed with tension and enough cliff-hangers to keep you turning the page, Crais has earned himself another fan with this book and as Elvis once said - Thank you Very Much! MILO RAMBLES 20120521 Taken is a corker of a fast moving, action packed read, with smart dialogue and lots of meaty characters and juicy scenes to sink your teeth into. -- Paul D Brazil MEAN STREETS Blog
