    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Suspect to be better than the print version?

    I used immersion on the Kindle fire hd (which syncronizes the audio and print). So I can't say which is better. However, if I had to choose, I think I liked the audio version so much I would have to choose the audio over the print version. MacLeod Andrews did such a great job of pacing the entire book. There was nothing lost in the narration.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    I loved Maggie. From the first chapter when we are introduced to the connection between Pete and Maggie to the very last page, I was pulling for Maggie.
    In addition, I liked the interaction between Scott James and Leland.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I did listen/read to this audiobook in one sitting. It was raining here today and it was such a great read on such a gloomy day.

    Story

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    Story
    Would you listen to Relic again? Why?

    I would probably listen to Relic again because I was turning the pages so fast that I am sure I missed some of the details. I didn't see the movie and from what I have read in the reviews, it probably is a good thing I missed it.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the strong characters within the story. However, it was the epilogue that did it for me because it answered every question I had during the story. I can't think of a question that wasn't answered. I have read books where the story ended and I'm asking, "yeah, but what about....?" That isn't the case in this book.

    Another thing I liked about the story was that this book could have really been a gory piece of literature. Certainly people died in a very unpleasant way but the details of the gore were left to the imagination of the reader. I have really grown tired of authors who think that they must explain every detail of a story.


    What about David Colacci’s performance did you like?

    I would love to listen to more books read by David Colacci. He kept the suspense and tension of the story balanced. He didn't over dramatize the scary moments which added to the story. He enhanced the story by allowing the words of the author to carry the tension. I thought he didn't a fine job.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked the first couple of chapters, the young boys, Margo trying to escape certain death and the book making her desperation so clear. There were many moments which moved me.
