From Publishers Weekly
Two minutes, in and out, that's the rule for robbing banks in this page-turning action ride around L.A. from bestseller Crais (Hostage). Break that rule, and you can end up like Marchenko and Parsons, dying in a violent shoot-out on the streets, the fortune from their string of heists deeply hidden. Max Holman certainly knows the time limit better than most. Dubbed the "hero bandit" by the press, he got caught during a robbery after he stopped to perform CPR on a bank customer who had a heart attack. About to leave prison on parole, the 48-year-old Max hopes he can establish contact with the son he never really knew, now a cop. When Max's son is murdered, suspected of being in a ring of dirty cops seeking the Marchenko and Parsons loot, Max needs to know the truth. The only person he figures can help him is Katherine Pollard, the fed who nabbed him, who's now ex-FBI and a struggling single mom. The perfect odd couple, they keep this novel personal and real as it builds to an exciting twist on the bank-robbing rule. 200,000 first printing; 15-city author tour. (Mar.)

Most reviewers are slaphappy with praise for Robert Crais's 13th novel. While some critics note a preference for his Elvis Cole books, they find that believable, complex characters, the vibrant settings around Los Angelesfrom the dive bars to the straitjacketed Los Angeles riverand heartfelt emotions separate The Two Minute Ruleand Craisfrom the bulk of crime fiction. The sharp note of dissent from the Oregonian only serves to reinforce the impression that middle-of-the road Crais is better than many other writers' best.

I said all that to say this. Two Minute Rule is a great read, in depth and with clues enough for you to follow even if the hero gets to the finish before you do.
"The Two Minute Rule" is the fast moving, suspenseful tale of Max Holman, an ex-con, just out of federal prison after 10+ years behind bars on a bank robbery charge.
He gets out, a changed man, and wants to make amends to his son, only to find out that his son - a police officer - was just recently murdered, along with three other cops.
Great character development, a mystery, a thriller, with a bit of a romance thrown in, all written in Crais' hard hitting style - what's not to love? (Well, the romance was a little too unbelievable for me - that's why 4 stars instead of 5).
