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
Robert Crais is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than twenty novels, many of them featuring private investigator Elvis Cole and his laconic ex-cop partner, Joe Pike. Before writing his first novel, Crais spent several years writing scripts for such major television series as Hill Street Blues, Cagney & Lacey, Miami Vice, Quincy, Baretta, and L.A. Law. He received an Emmy nomination for his work on Hill Street Blues, and one of his standalone novels, Hostage, was made into a movie starring Bruce Willis. His novels have been translated into forty-two languages and are bestsellers around the world. A native of Louisiana, he lives in Los Angeles.
