Publisher's Summary

Audie Award Finalist, Thriller/Suspense, 2014

For 25 years, Robert Crais has written extraordinary novels of crime and suspense. He is "a master of crime fiction" (Associated Press); "his novels get better with every new book" (Portland Oregonian); "Crais is hands-down the world’s greatest crime writer" (The Huffington Post).

But in Suspect, he may have written his most remarkable novel of all.

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. He was a young cop on the rise; she was bred to guard and protect. Now they are shunned and shunted to the side. They are suspect. And together they will set out to investigate the one case that no one wants them to touch: the identity of the men who murdered Stephanie.

Nine months and sixteen days later, they remained free. They were still out there.

What they begin to find is nothing like what Scott has been told, and where it will lead them will take them both through the darkest moments of their own personal hells. Whether they will make it out again, no one can say.

Thrilling, emotional, intense, with some of the best characters and well-crafted writing in all of crime fiction, Suspect is further proof that "Crais just keeps getting better" (Publishers Weekly).

    "if half of dog stuff is true then."

    This was Great book. Good suspense. Good storyline. And who does like hero dog's. But the story does make you worry.

    Well Maggie was the favorite character. Why? Read or listen to the book. Pack.

    No, this was first. the reader is very important to an audio book. And Mr. Andrew's did well.


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

    yes, but I wouldn't and didn't .


    Any additional comments?

    if your a guy you'll love this book. Girls? I don't know I'm a guy.

    "Great Read"

    This is a great read. If you're a dog lover, this book gets an extra star lol. If you're not a dog lover, you might change your mind after reading this book!

    Story
    "Who would of thought?"

    I thought that I had got the wrong book when the story started from the perspective of a dog. I was going to skip the chapter until it was obvious that this was no ordinary dog tale.

    Then, when I started to get emotional about this dog (being a cat person first and not having a pet since I was a kid) I had to check myself. "Why am I getting close to tears? it's just a story about a dog. pull it together, man!"

    I finished the audio book, in one sitting. nothing else mattered. I know, pretty ridiculous, right? Not at all!

    For me, Robert Crais is a genius. it's my first book I've read that he's authored. and it won't be my last. it is evident in his ability to tell the story from multiple perspectives, including a dog. the dog perspective is literary genius.

    MacLeod Andrews is perfect in his delivery. my favourite narrator so far. Great articulation and pace.

    You will not be disappointed.

    "Good Book"

    Started off good and continued good throughout the book. It was a good book about the relationship between a man and his dog. It also gave a good background on how a dog uses his sense of smell. I enjoyed the book all the way through. I don't like books with a lot of crude language - I found the language in this book appropriate for the content. The reader was easy to listen to and easy to understand. The difference in voices for the different characters was also good. I will be "reading" more books by this author.

    "Highly Recommend"

    I loved this book, could not put it down. The characters are well written and you get pulled into their lives and the story. Loved the dog Maggie most of all. The story builds at a good pace, the story has a thrilling ending. The end is not given away. I am not an expert on service dogs but I learned a lot and the author seems to have do e his homework.
    I teared up at some points and my heart raced at others.
    Narrator was excellent.
    One of the best books I have read/listened to in a long time, and I finish a book a week.
    Hope this turns into a series, love the characters and where the story left off. I am guessing the author is a dogs lover from the way he writes about and describes Maggie. Dog peek are the best.
    I recommend this book if you like police procedural, thrillers and dogs.
