    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.

    Story
    Where does Suspect rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best audiobooks I have listened to. The story which included the perspective of the dog was just outstanding and added depth and quality to this already will crafted and integrated story. Wow, I'm reading more Crais!


    What other book might you compare Suspect to and why?

    While it was different, the quality of the story was comparable to "The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo" series, one of the best series of books I've ever listened to!


    What does MacLeod Andrews bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The narrator added a sense of this story being real and alive with these characters rather than more static when one reads the written page themselves. I suspect people who love audiobooks loved someone to read to them as a child because its nurturing and the story takes on more energy and imagination as it does here.


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

    As a dog lover I found the periodic dog's perspective a surprise and enriching to the story!


    Any additional comments?

    Start with this book if you're not read Crais before and then go from there!

    Story

    He's a self-described beach bum who won his houseboat in a card game. He's also a knight errant who's wary of credit cards, retirement benefits, political parties, mortgages, and television. He only works when his cash runs out, and his rule is simple: he'll help you find whatever was taken from you, as long as he can keep half.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Story was okay but not intriguing or fascinating. Disappointing after all i had read about this series!


    Would you recommend The Deep Blue Good-By to your friends? Why or why not?

    No, not good enough to hold one's attention.


    What does Robert Petkoff bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Added life to the characters.


    Do you think The Deep Blue Good-By needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not if written in this same style. Way too much flowerly self reflection that did not enhance the story!
