Friend of God... Saved by grace... Mother of 3 gifts... Wife of one... Worship dancer.... Educated by God, Academia and Willy Wonka...
This is one of the best audiobooks I have read.
The story was great but I think what made the story both captivating and different from the rest was the perspective of the other main character - Maggie. I loved reading her chapters! It gave the mystery this endearing quality that is usually played out differently in books. Read it - You will understand!
Living is easy with eyes closed... and headphones on.
Definitely yes!!! MacLeod Andrews was AMAZING at performing this book, with just the right voices, intonation, emphases, silences and emotions. Wow!!!! Audible, thank you for this lovely book. However if you are reading this, I highly recommend you change the book's sample to the prologue. The very first scene is fast paced, draws you into this page-turner thriller, and I knew I was hooked from the very beginning.
Scott. His PTSD ached so bad, and his pain lingered in my mind.
All of them were spectacular, but I especially liked Maggie. I find it an original take to incorporate the dog not only as a character but also one with episodes and thoughts. I love dogs and I don't doubt for a second their intelligence, but I've never seen it done before in a book, not like that. Very well-done, both the writing and the performance.
Most of the book did. Especially the comments from the tough sergeant Leeland. A dog is man's best friend, and he knows it.
I can't believe I waited this long (nearly 2 months) since I bought this to have a listen. All the positive reviews here are right. Can't wait to check out other Robert Crais novels.
Suspect is fiction and the best books in my queue are the Great Courses Series non-fiction / history, but I enjoyed this man and dog love fest told from the perspectives of the dog and his handler.
Yes. I love that the dog's point of view is presented. A traumatic event leaves the dog without his handler and a bit confused about his new job. The dog quickly bonds with his new handler who finds himself a suspect in the murder that he is investigating. There's some love interest and the story keeps the reader guessing about how the story will resolve.
I enjoyed the male voice. His deep and resonant voice is easy on the ears and his portrayals of women are also believable. Definitely easy on the ears.
I always get caught up in the stories, but this book definitely held my interest. It resolved a little too easily for my taste, but I liked the outcome. The story wasn't so much about solving a crime but about the relationships that bond one individual to another. A story well told by a powerful reader.
This book was excellent from the beginning to end. The story line was great and the narrator wonderful.
I did not know what to expect of this book, but I am glad I chose to listen. The story is well-written, and characters believable, and the narration superb. I really enjoyed this listen!
I don't know of any book to compare this one to, but I have read several more stories by Robert Crais since this book. Truly an exceptional writer.
His characters were believable, and he had great ease with gender and dialect changes.
It was, but I spaced it out as it was soooo gooood!!!
Crais--no. I only finished this one to see how bad it would get.
MacLeod Andrews--yes. He did a fine job, the material wasn't his fault.
Treated his reader as an intelligent adult. I don't need passages like "Scott James had a message on his answering machine from Jana Crowley (I can't recall the character's acutal name). "Hi, Scott, this is Jana Crowley." Really, Mr. Crais? Also, take it from this actual dog trainer, the training scenes and the dog's reactions were ludicrous.
It was short.
Tell us about yourself!
I love this book! The backgrounds and eventual teaming of the man and dog made for a "feel good" story. Suddenly, while invesitigating a massacre, they really step in some deep doo doo. Lives and careers beyond their own are threatened. The satisfactory resolution wraps up all the loose ends.
The narration by MacLeod Andrews is well done.
Loved the vivid detail from human and animal perspective
You begin to root for the characters as the story progresses. Maggie steals your heart
There are too many good scenes to name but watching the realationship between animal and human was very compelling.
Mans best friend
This book rates among the best audiobooks I've listened to.
You will fall in love with Maggie and Scott.
I really enjoyed his performance in the Sandman Slim series but this performance is my favorite. MacLeod is very talented and he creates memorable characters.
I cried and laughed but this book is also action packed. At certain parts of the book I wasn't able to sit still, I paced the floor.
I'm so happy that I found Robert Crais at this point in his career. He has written so many books that I look forward to reading or listening to.This is a message to the author: please give us more of Scott, Maggie and MacLeod.
I was not familiar with Robert Crais but I enjoy action thrillers and this is a very good one. I certainly was not disappointed and the book managed to hold my attention. I can recommend it.
