ROBERT CRAIS INTRODUCES NEWEST THRILLER

WEDNESDAY, NOVEMBER 18; 7 PM

(Line numbers beginning at 6 pm. Please show your books&co receipt for The Promise to get a line number.)

ROBERT CRAIS, known as “a master of crime fiction” by the Associated Press, will introduce his 20th novel, The Promise. Elvis Cole and Joe Pike are working a case involving a missing mother. They follow her trail to an ordinary house in Echo Park, only to be surprised to find LAPD K-9 Officer Scott James and his patrol dog Maggie also there, but on a case tracking a dangerous fugitive. The two cases intertwine in surprising ways as they come face-to-face with a man with ties to dangerous arms dealers who leave behind a savagely murdered body and enough explosives to blow up the whole neighborhood, with them in it. PUTNAM

Philadelphia Inquirer said Crais is “one of those rare, treasured writers who combine genuine humanity with tales of crime and detection.”
