Book Review- Robert Crais- The Watchman

Robert Crais- The Watchman (Simon & Schuster 2007) 3.25 Stars

Joe Pike, an ex-cop, must protect Larkin Conner Barkley, a rich and spoiled young woman. She is to be a witness in a federal case and everywhere she goes the killer hunts her down. Everything is not as it should be though and Joe Pike must figure out who he can trust and what exactly is the truth.

The characters in this novel were very interesting and deep. The plot was somewhat predictable, although there were some very good twists involved. Some of the flashback sections were a tad bit annoying at times and although they provided you with information, they took away from the overall storyline, slowing it down. Would have liked to of seen a little bit more setting description as well, as I found it hard to picture the places involved.

I would recommend this to fans of the Joe Pike series.
