Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Taken

“I have no criticisms of Robert Crais's work, other than I wish he could write as fast as I devour his work, which would require him to crank out—at the very least—a new book every week.”—Huffington Post

“Wonderfully told, a punch-in-the-gut thriller that is not to be missed.”—The Providence Journal

“[Crais’s] best-selling Elvis Cole/Joe Pike series gets better with every new book, and...Taken, is no exception.”—OregonLive.com

“[Taken] would make a fine action-packed film.”—Publishers Weekly
