Suspect | [Robert Crais]

Suspect

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.

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).

    Story
    "Loved it Loved it Loved it!"

    I'd never heard of Robert Crais when this book came up as a Daily Deal. The plot appealed to me, so I tried it. Wow--I'm so glad I did. I really enjoyed the characterization and the story line. As an animal lover, Maggie was a legitimate character to me. I rooted for her as much as the humans in the book, if not more. I hope Crais continues and developes this into a series of books with these characters. Are you listening Mr. Crais?

    "GREAT - love Maggie!"

    I loved the story, the narrator did a good job, but most of all, I loved the inclusion of Maggie and all the info, innuendo, and general inclusion of the good dog in this story.

    Story
    "Great Book. True Story of Loyalty"
    Would you listen to Suspect again? Why?

    Absolutely, Its just a great story. Anyone who has had or has a dog will instantly be hooked by the Loyalty and companionship in suspect. Plus its a very good thriller. Well written, good Character development and riveting story line.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maggie, the Dog. She is furiously loyal and she is paired with Scott of the LAPD who is "not a dog person". They both bring out the best in each other through out the story.


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

    Loyalty, Commitment, Justice

    Story
    "Hooked from the beginning to end."
    If you could sum up Suspect in three words, what would they be?

    Heartfelt... Suspenseful... Mystery


    What other book might you compare Suspect to and why?

    I can not compare it to anything because I don't normally listen to crime mystery books, but I am so glad I listened to this one.


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

    MacLeod Andrews performs every character flawlessly giving each character a life inside my mind that I do not believe I would have envisioned had I simply read the book.


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

    Yes...I found it hard to turn off!

    Story
    "Usual police story"
    What did you like best about Suspect? What did you like least?

    Nothing really imaginative about the story and the parts that are told from the dog's point of view were annoying especially when scott was talking to the dog. I did like the facts told in the story about dogs and what they are capable of. Not much action and scott kept getting lucky with his investigation and typically did stupid things


    Has Suspect turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The ending.


    Do you think Suspect needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It doesn't need one, but it could have one since it's over a short period of time.

    "Great Story!"
    If you could sum up Suspect in three words, what would they be?

    A great story!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maggie...the wonder dog.... what a heart and I love how Robert Crais wrote her inner thoughts.


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    His voice was very expressive and interesting to listen to.


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

    Never have I been gripped so much by a book's prologue...I was sold before the first chapter.


    Any additional comments?

    This is for the dog lover who loves a good story.

    One of my favorite audiobooks. Storyline was great, I loved the interpretation from Maggie's point of view. Narrator's performance contributed to the character development. A story that left me anticipating throughout.

    Any additional comments?

    This book will especially engage dog lovers, but everyone can enjoy it. Especially interesting are chapters from the dog's point of view, based on current knowledge about how dogs perceive and think. There are likeable good guys, evil villains, and exciting twists in the plot. I loved it.

    "Great dog and handler story"

    As a 'dog person' I seek books involving human canine relationships. This story is just right. Author delves into the past experiences of both the human and the canine, I really cared about both of them.

    I'm a dedicated reader/listener. My tastes are very eclectic, and there's not much I don't like except horror and dull history.

    Story
    "Heartwarming and engaging!"
    What did you love best about Suspect?

    I've never read anything by Robert Crais, but his books have been on my "want to read one of these" list, so I decided to try this one because of the good reviews. And I wasn't disappointed, although I realize this novel is not like most of Crais's books. I loved Maggie the most, but my heart also went out to Scotty who was so alone and hurting until Maggie came into his life. My heart broke when he was hurt again.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters -- Scott, Leland, and the detectives who supported Scott. And, of course, I loved Maggie and like the way Crais "got into her head."


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

    The narration was quite good, with clear definition between characters, although I didi think the high squeaky voice used when talking to Maggie was a bit overdone.


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

    When Scotty was shot and Maggie was protecting him from Crowley. I wanted Scotty to live, and Maggie wouldn't let Crowley help him, but I was also incredibly moved by Maggie's dedication to her alpha.


    Any additional comments?

    I will definitely read another book by Robert Crais, but it will have a hard time living up to this one!!
