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).

    "Nice read."
    What did you love best about Suspect?

    I loved the development of the personality of the dog and the relationship between her and her new master. I also liked Scott, whose personality was such that the relationship between him and the dog, and the resulting decisions he made, seem highly believable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I can't decide if I preferred Scott or the dog! Maggie had real character and a genuine personality, albeit very doglike (the author only marginally anthropomorphized her.) I felt like the author really knows dogs.


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

    No, but I enjoyed my listening sessions and looked forward to having time to tune it in.


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator did a very nice job of conveying the dog's thinking (of all things!) I also appreciated that his character development was such that I had no trouble keeping them sorted out.

    "You'll appreciate your dog even more"

    I've always enjoyed Crais' books, his Elvis Cole and Joe Pike novels are just fun and entertaining. This book is a stand alone (although how many bets he brings back this character?). What's so fun about this book is Maggie, the dog, and how very attached you become to her and all the new respect you have for your own dog. My dog got lots of extra attention (as if she is every neglected!) while I was reading this. It's just thoroughly entertaining and interesting.

    "Did not want it to be finished"

    I do not normally post reviews,however, this book just stopped me in my tracks. It is so compelling ,that I tried NOT to listen to it ,because I knew that I'd be sad that I'd finished it !!. I limited my listening to an hour per day ( but it was not easy !!!) great story,believable characters, and superb narration . Hope for more of this team. Thanks audible.

    "Wonderful story!!"
    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book! I was so sad for it to end. I wish that the Scott - Maggie duo could be made into a series. I know that I've really enjoyed a book when my thoughts dwell on it for days or weeks after. This book did that for me.

    I am fairly new to this genre, but have recently become hooked. This book came up on the Daily Deal so I thought I'd give it a try. I'm so glad I did. The story intertwined a heartwarming story of love, trust and healing, but it was also a darn good mystery/thriller. There was lots of excitement to keep the story moving. While I though I'd enjoy the mystery part of the story more, I found myself looking forward to those scenes that developed the relationship between Scott and Maggie. I couldn't put the book down until I had finished it. I will definitely re-read it.
