The Watchman by Robert Crais

The WatchmanI’m a sucker for misanthropes, loners, silent strong types and misunderstood heroes. Joe Pike is all of these things, and more. He wears reflective sunglasses all the time, even at night, and prefers to go running in the middle of the night because he’s less likely to run into people. He has red arrows pointing forward on both arms, but he’ll never tell you what they stand for. He’s an ex-cop, ex-Marine, ex-mercenary who likes to help people in trouble, as long as they can respect his boundaries and stay out of his way.

Larkin Conner Barkley is a spoiled rich girl trying to do the right thing for once in her life, and she has no respect for Pike, his boundaries, or his help. When the threat of death becomes more real than the glitzy, self-destructive life she’s forced to put aside, Larkin develops a grudging appreciation for Pike’s protection. Forced to spend many hours together, he realizes that behind the fast cars and the glamorous lifestyle, Larkin is hiding a deep loneliness – something he understands.

When the killers up the ante and even the cops are suspect, Pike knows there are only a few people left to trust, and brings in Elvis Cole, a private investigator with skills of his own. Together they will find a way to ensure Larkin survives the assault they know is coming.
