The Watchman: A Joe Pike Novel

The latest novel in the Elvis Cole series is the book Joe Pike fans have been clamoring for
—a Joe Pike novel.

In The Watchman, RC places Joe Pike square in the cross-hairs as the main character of his new thriller/detective novel.

Larkin Conner Barkley is a federal witness in what appears to be a money laundering case. She also happens to be a spoiled rich girl trying to do the right thing for the first time in her life. But what if the United States Marshals cannot protect her?

What if the best private security money can buy cannot keep her safe? Joe Pike owes a bad man a big favor. And that favor is to protect Larkin Barkley. But when Pike and the girl immediately come under murderous fire, Pike hatches a plan: disappear with the girl into the anonymous underbelly of Los Angeles, turn the tables on the men who want her dead, and do what Joe Pike does best—hunt down the hunters.

With Elvis Cole’s help, Pike uncovers a web of lies and betrayals where nothing and no one is what it seems. But Pike’s biggest threat might be the girl—a lonely soul determined to destroy herself, unless Joe Pike can fill the void in her empty heart.

Coming in Spring, 2007. Additional information, excerpts, and interviews will appear in the coming months.
