    From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose....

    Katie says: "Great book; so-so narrator"
    "Great Book!"
    Overall

    I loved this book. After recently reading a Koontz book which was almost too awful to finish, i was worried about this one, but found it to be wonderful. I fell in love with the dog, and felt like Nora and Travis were friends of mine. I was so wrapped up in this book that i found myself finding reasons to drive so that i could have an opportunity to listen. And if you ask any of my family, they'll tell you "Keep it down so Mommie can hear the book..." I truly enjoyed it and was almost sad when the adventure ended.

    I would (and have) recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story, great characters, and lots of plot twists and turns.

    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.

    What made the experience of listening to Suspect the most enjoyable?

    The author made me fall in love with the main characters. My heart swelled when the story was told through Maggie's eyes. What a wonderful story of redemption, love, and devotion.


    What other book might you compare Suspect to and why?

    This story kind of reminded me of something that Koontz would write (minus the scary stuff)... with such a strong k-9 character, who was developed so well, it's hard to not see a slight similarity. I came to truly love and respect both Maggie and Scott.


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

    Leland... I love the attitude he gave this guy. It made me laugh! I could see "the scowl" in my mind, thanks to Andrews' performance.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    "We are pack."


    Any additional comments?

    This was my first read of this author's books. I am officially a fan! I loved every minute of it, and am looking forward to reading more!

    Best-selling novelist Cullen "Cubby" Greenwich is a lucky man and he knows it. He makes a handsome living doing what he enjoys. His wife, Penny, a children's book author and illustrator, is the love of his life. Together they have a brilliant six-year-old, Milo, affectionately dubbed "Spooky," and a non-collie named Lassie, who's all but part of the family. So Cubby knows he shouldn't let one bad review of his otherwise triumphant new book get to him.

    Derek B. says: "I cant sleep!"
    "Good story, but it's a copy, i think..."
    Overall

    I enjoyed this story A LOT! The characters are great, and the story keeps you asking, "how the heck is he doing that!!" Lots of twists and turns, as well. thing is, though, I read "the Good Guy" by Koontz right after, and realized that they are very similar.. i was a little disappointed about that. So if you've already read the Good Guy, I would still recommend, but I'd caution you that many of the themes in this book are the same.

    A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned.

    Barry says: "One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable."
    "Wonderful!"
    Overall

    This book was wonderful. The twists and turns... I found myself rooting for the family and saying "good for you!" outloud as Laura overcame her obstacles. I enjoyed this book immensely and was sad when it ended. Would DEFINITELY recommend. NOTE: Don't try to pick apart this books scientific accuracy on time travel, it WILL give you a headache! PARADOX!! PARADOX!!
