"The ensuing chase and bloodbath will leave you in shock and awe but Chapter 33, in which Pike simply cleans a gun under the watchful eyes of Cole's furious cat, demonstrates more succinctly what a brilliant writer Crais has become." -- Mark Sanderson EVENING STANDARD 20120628 Wowee, what a thrill ride. It's a blast, with more action and suspense than all three Bourne films rolled into one. PETERBROUGH EVENING TELEGRAPH 20120428 'Taken' is the best Crais book I have read for some time and I had to read it in one sitting ...a fast pace book filled with great characters, that is very well written and comes highly recommended. CRIMESQUAD 20120521 A gripping storyline, engaging and enthusiastic characters, a tight plot and action to die for, this is one hell of an entertaining read; perhaps more importantly this is a fun read. Jam packed with tension and enough cliff-hangers to keep you turning the page, Crais has earned himself another fan with this book and as Elvis once said - Thank you Very Much! MILO RAMBLES 20120521 Taken is a corker of a fast moving, action packed read, with smart dialogue and lots of meaty characters and juicy scenes to sink your teeth into. -- Paul D Brazil MEAN STREETS Blog
