About The Book

'Just keeps getting better and better' Evening Standard
As addictive as Lee Child and as explosive as Michael Connelly – THE WANTED is the new thriller from Robert Crais, and a NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER


Seventeen-year-old Tyson is a normal teenaged boy – he’s socially awkward, obsessed with video games, and always hungry. But his mother is worried that her sweet, nerdy son has started to change… and she’s just found a $40,000 Rolex watch under his bed. Suddenly very frightened that Tyson has gotten involved in something illegal, his mother gets in touch with a private investigator named Elvis Cole and asks him to do some digging.
 
Cole uncovers a connection between Tyson and eighteen unsolved burglaries in LA’s ritziest neighbourhood. Tyson spooks and runs.
 
And then people start dying...
