“The Wanted” is the newest title by Robert Crais. Single mother Devon Connor hires Elvis Cole because she thinks her son is dealing drugs. The truth is Tyson Connor and two others are responsible for a string of high-end burglaries that end in one getting murdered and the other two disappearing. Elvis brings in Joe Pike to help him, but the two may be overmatched. The police don’t want them anywhere near the investigation, the teenagers refuse to be found and hired killers are leaving a trail of bodies. This book is available on CD and digitally in the Virtual Library.
