Ask anyone on the wrong side of the law about the two minute rule and they’ll tell you that’s as long as you can hope for at a robbery before the cops show up. Break the two minute rule and it’s a lifetime in jail. But not everyone plays by the rules....
When ex-con Max Holman finally gets out of jail, freedom doesn’t taste too sweet. The only thing on his mind is reconciliation with his estranged son, who is, ironically, a cop. But then he hears the devastating news: His son and three other Los Angeles police officers were gunned down in cold blood the night before Holman’s release. When the hit is exposed as a revenge killing and the question of police corruption is raised, it becomes a father’s last duty to clear his son’s name and catch the killer. With all the elements that have made Robert Crais one of the very best crime novelists today, The Two Minute Rule is gripping, edgy suspense from the author who sets the standard when it comes to surprising plot twists and powerful characters.

Robert Crais is the 2006 recipient of the Ross Macdonald Literary Award. He is the author of numerous New York Times bestsellers, including The Two Minute Rule, The Forgotten Man, and L.A. Requiem.From AudioFile:
Caught, convicted, and his time served, Max Holman is devastated by the news of his son's murder on his first day of freedom. His life "outside" begins, not as expected, but with a driving need to solve the riddles of false answers, the unrecovered fortune of a bank heist, and LAPD police corruption. Christopher Graybill maintains a steady hand on the intrigue that keeps listeners guessing throughout. His portraits of Holman and his unlikely partner, ex-FBI bank squad investigator Agent Pollard, are clear and subtly insightful. There's surprising humanity in these two misfits, and it comes across in Graybill's narration. Several minor characters get delightful "bit part" treatment from Graybill, making them more memorable than their brief appearances in the story.
