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).

    "A nail biter for dog lovers"

    I really enjoyed this book a lot. This is my first Robert Crais book and it won't be the last. I have a new narrator also, MacLeod made the characters come to life, really a fun listen.

    "Great author, Great Narrator and a German Shepherd"

    I am a huge fan of Robert Crais, which can put high expectations on each book as opposed to trying a new author. SUSPECT was not a disappointment. K-9 Marine-turned-LAPD-officer, Maggie, is wonderful and touches your heart. Nearly killed by a sniper and suffering from PTSD, she is about to be rejected from the LAPD K-9 unit when she meets officer Scott James, a survivor himself. Like Maggie, Scott lost his partner and is still recovering from near-fatal gunshot wounds on duty. He wants to give Maggie the chance to prove herself.

    Together, they find themselves caught in an investigation of the very same criminals who were responsible for killing Scott's partner.

    The audio book was narrated brilliantly by MacLeod Andrews. I can't wait to listen to the next book on Maggie and Scott that will include Elvis and Joe!

    "Very engaging book with a couple caveats"

    I really liked the general plot and topic of this book. I train dogs and the dog training and perception stuff in this book was very believable. I also liked the background story of the plot.

    There were a couple of typical mystery plot annoyances in that in order to amp up the suspense the author chose to portray the protagonists as dumbshits or incredibly naïve people. Oh well, this happens a lot.

    The reader did an excellent job.

    "Crais' Best!!"

    In my opinion this is the best I have read in Robert Crais Collection! As a owner of four German shepherds I find this book particularly enjoyable as he clearly and correctly defines the mindset, stature and performance of the police canines. Kudos to this author for accurately representing the German Shepherd dog and police work. Like this author I am also from Louisiana but I'm also the wife of a retired police officer and as previously mentioned a true lover and owner of German Shepherds! Excellent book!

    "Very intense! Had to read it in parts."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Great for anyone that likes a tight situation, has had military experience and loves dogs.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Kept me on the edge of more than my seat!


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

    Great reader. Makes it real. None of the common errors of those that do not have at least basic knowledge of the material being presented.


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

    YES! YES! But as I said before, I had to take it in parts.

    "Suspect surprisingly satisfying"

    I purchased this book with no expectations and it was surprisingly good. The chapters from the dog - Maggie's - perspective were perhaps the most interesting (if for no other reason that I have not often read narrative from an animal's perspective. It has strong pace - perhaps too strong because it is relatively short. But no point in annoying a reader's patience just to add pointless length. If nothing else Robert Crais has earned one more of my credits.
