Unabridged Audiobook

Release Date
January 2010
8 hours 17 minutes
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.

I love all of Robert Crais’ characters. Well researched. Well written. Well performed.

I loved the story because it shed light on the enigmatic character of Joe Pike. It was interesting to see Pike take the lead in this storyline and there were so many twists to the story that it really kept me interested throughout. It’s nice that the author read the story. He does a fantastic job. Also, as a native of Los Angeles, it was especially nice to hear the names of streets and locations that are familiar to me. Most of the narrators butcher some of these. I highly recommend The First Rule especially if you’re a fan of the series.

Predictable plot. Cardboard characters with Pike as the apex of tedious monosyllabic cartoon heros.

This story with Pike in the center focus is great!
