When Cole goes undercover he himself is taken.

Joe Pike tries to retrace Cole’s step. In a race against time in the murderous world of human traffickers Pike must do all he can to find these people before its too late.

Taken is a very good thriller and fans of Robert Crais will enjoy his latest book.
