Why did I read this?  I believe that Robert Crais is an outstanding author and I enjoy reading his stories.

A concerned Mom finds a Rolex watch in her son’s possession that he can in no way afford.  She calls Elvis to check it out and that leads Elvis and Joe down a rabbit hole of death, destruction, corruption and deceit on many levels.  Let’s see what can I say that won’t give anything away, manipulation, corruption, wrongful exoneration, teenage burglars, mercenaries, police and a cat.
