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).

I love thrillers, suspense, mysteries and classics.
I truly enjoyed listening to this audiobook. Sad, touching, and it kept me interested from beginning to end. I am a Robert Crais fan now. The Narrator did an excellent job!
The prologue alone had me in tears.
MacLeod Andrews was awesome, he really captured the different character's voices. Very enjoyable story, I liked Maggie and Scott. I hope there are more with them!
I actually listened to the second book in the series before this one. This is a great story. It was very suspenseful and I love the relationship between Scott and Maggie and seeing things from the dogs perspective. I am looking forward to listening to more books in the series.
The narrator really made you feel like you were there in the story. He really has a gift for narrating. And the story line was different from most of the other action / crime stories - with a dog sharing top billing !
I am a licensed practical nurse in long term care. I love mysteries and crime dramas.
Great book! More than what I expected. Great story and great narration. Enjoyed it tremendously.
Facebook gave me goosebumps and tears from the start it was wonderful to get the prospective of both canine as well as law enforcement officer and their Bond as a team. It Made Me Love My Dog more and spend more time with her and maybe understand her just a little bit more
Say something about yourself!
Excellent Excellent Excellent ...!!!
Loved this story about a former wounded in action Marine K-9 now working for the LAPD and his handler Police Officer Scott James. Great story...!!!
