I drive 45 miles to work, 5 days a week, and owe my sanity to audiobooks. I get them from friends, the library, and of course - Audible.
It's another great story by Crais - no Elvis or Pike, but the same depth of character and story that we've learned to expect. If you love a good story, and dogs, it's a sure thing.
the dog. He is so believable and creeps into your heart
I bought this book for my mom in hospital. She has listened to it about 4 times.
Whiskey and Gunpowder
A well crafted yarn with well developed characters, what more can you ask for?
The dog was so well written. If you own dogs and more specifically shepherds it is clear that Crais either also does or really did his homework. He really brought both the main characters alive for me and I didn't want the book to end. I hope he writes a new adventure for this team.
Yes buy this if you like animals and detective yarns.
I didn't read the print version, but have friends looking for it who don't listen to audio books.
Yes. There seemed to be several stories intermingled and switching back and forth kept me "tuned in." I've recommended this book to friends and family and will listen to it again (which I rarely do).
There was more than one, but I don't want to ruin the story for anyone.
This thriller ranks with the best of them. What's so unique is that the book is so integral of the dog/man relationship; but takes it even further by writing parts of the story as experienced through the dog.
The only other book or books that I've found that tell part or all of the story through the perspective of the dog is 'The Book of Riley 1 & 2' by Mark Tufo. Though the books are very different in genres, it means so much to experience a story through how a dog would perceive it as these animals are so important and meaningful in our lives.
This is a must-listen for sure- hope there are more to come like this.
If you like 'The Walking Dead' type of stories & really want more of the 'dog perspective' stories, check out 'The Book of Riley 1 & 2'. While not as amazing as 'Suspect' and not meant to be as realistic, they are definitely great listens worth the time.
Captivating, exciting, Heart-warming.
Maggie the dog.
I liked his performance. Did a good job with the different characters.
I laughed and I cried and had a meriad of feelings and reactions. I was there living the story. Gripping.
I would like to think that I have the same relationship with my dog that Scott has with Maggie and I think we do. I hope Robert Crais writes more about Scott and Maggie. I want more. This was my first Robert Crais book and I picked a winner to start with. I throughly enjoyed this. Good and captivating storyline. I had a hard time turning it off. I will definitely listen to more of Robert Crais' books. Kudos!
...but a pleasant enough way to help getting through the house-cleaning and laundry chores I love so much.
The reader is awesome, not too "over done" in his style. Kept the energy level up throughout the book.
Maggie - True hero!
Maggie - Love the narrative of her thoughts.
Can not speak to this, usually only do audio.
It is a tie between Scott and Maggie.The description on their mind set is so telling,Leaves you right there.
This is my first listen of MacLeod,He made feel you were right there.
Many moved, but I believe when Maggie and Scott realized there were pack.
Robert surpasses his previous writings, (which I have read all)mostly page turners,how he presents Scott and Maggie's mind sets, gives you a whole different side of him.
This insight into how these K-9 persons meld with their dogs and is forever enlightening. Dog man.
I loved reading about King Arthur and Knights of the round table when I was a wee lad. Now I am older and love Game of Thrones!
The narrators' inflection on the charactors, the engaging investigation, and the progress of the story was very good. Loved the repore between scott, maggie, and the officer lady at the end.
Yes, it kept building up tempo right after the charactors were introduced in the beginning, and you wanted to just keep reading, or listening. You wanted to see Scott make it, and you wanted to see Maggie make it, all the while there were so many obstacles.
Scott, & Maggie, followed by his K9 Superior,who was tough as nails, but just all bark and no bite!
I didn't cry, but came close as I had a lump in my throat a couple times. I am a GerShep lover for all my life, my folks have always had a Shepherd, and then I have had 2 since being married. Wonderful, smart dogs!
One heck of a good book.. I would love to read more like this one! If you don't beleive me, read some reviews and judge for yourself. You won't feel bad for spending the money, its a good one.. and I look forward to listening to the audiobook a year from now.
