The Two Minute Rule by Robert Crais (audio)

On the day that Max Holman is being released from prison, after serving his 10 year sentence for robbing a bank, he learns that his son, Richie, is murdered. Richie is a cop and was murdered alone with 3 other cops. Holman has not seen his boy in a long time, and his boy doesn't list him as his father, but he had hoped to reconnect with his son and Richie's mother after he got out.
Holman asks questions of the cops looking into the murder and soon finds that what he is being told doesn't make sense. He asks for help from Katherine Pollard, the FBI agent who put him in jail. Katherine is out of work and agrees to help Holman.
They soon find evidence that makes it seem like the cops were murdered by other cops. It seems 4 of them were hunting down the missing 16 million dollars that two bank robbers stole and stashed before they were killed.
I thought this book was very good. I listened to the audio version and thought the reader did an excellent job. I didn't get drawn into the story right away...but soon it kept my interested and I was anxious to get to the end of the story and see who the bad guy was.
