This is one of my favorite books...my only complaint is that I find myself checking the time remaining constantly because I don't want it to end!
I loved the relationship between Scott and the dog, and while I understand the crime component was probably necessary for continuity and cohesion (it is a police story, after all), I found that part boring and difficult to follow. Performance was excellent, and the dog and handler relationship was beautifully portrayed. In all honesty, I found myself zoning out during the parts about the case and motivations of the other characters. I just loved so much listening to Maggie and Scott's perspective and interaction.
Posted this to Facebook: To my dog lover friends... there is a book. Suspect by Robert Crais is about a military dog in civilian life. I'm listening to it for maybe the 6th, 7th time, in love with the story and grateful to Audible for giving us an experience that one cannot get by just reading, MacLeod Andrews as narrator who gives it an amazing dimension. It's worth joining Audible just for this book!
I wasn't sure if this would be a book for me or not but I was so sucked in from the beginning. The relationship between the animal and her handlers was amazing and I was not able to turn the book off until it was finished. Don't pass this one up!
