When you’re in mortal danger who can you trust to watch over you? Joe Pike is THE SENTRY in this explosive novel.

After the nightmare of Hurricane Katrina, Dru Rayne and her uncle relocated to Los Angeles. Five years later, their struggling restaurant faces a different danger. When Joe Pike witnesses Dru’s uncle beaten by a neighbourhood gang, he offers his own brand of protection, but neither Dru nor her uncle want his help. And neither do the federal agents mysteriously watching their store . . .

But Pike is falling for Dru, and won’t back away whether she wants his help or not. As the violence escalates, Joe discovers Dru and her uncle are not who they seem – and now a vengeful, murderous force from their past is catching up with them…

Reviews

Teeth-rattlingly good
Alex Gorden, Evening Telegraph (Peterborough)
A rip-roaring read, and a smart and careful character study
ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY
The action in THE SENTRY is intense and the body count high but what is more memorable is the manner in which Crais cracks open the door into the enigmatic Pike's emotions
L A TIMES
Robert Crais is a crime writer of incredible talent - his novels are not only suspenseful and deeply atmospheric ... they are very hard to put down
