The two minute rule refers to how long you can hope for during a bank robbery before the cops turn up.
A bank robber, Max Holman, served his time and is phased back into society… when his son (who he had no contact with and grew up to be a police officer) is killed by bank robbers. Now, it’s been a few weeks since I read this and to be honest it was complex and I can’t remember the details. The highlights however was the relationship between Max and the ex-FBI agent who caught him.
This is a one-off novel, not part of Robert Crais various series and is an excellent if a little complex read. Page turner.
