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).

    Any additional comments?

    Robert Crais provides a wonderful novel about Scott and Maggie, the K9 from Iraq & Afghanistan tours who lost her handler. Told from both of their viewpoints, you have a unique chance to watch how the close bonds between cops and their canines develop. While Scott is trying to deal with his part in the death of his partner, Maggie is having to deal with her PTSD as well. The story provides the background that brings them together and keeps on building as Scott works to unravel what happened that night. The answers are slowly revealed as Crais develops the unexpected climax. I loved this book especially since I am an avid dog lover. Maggie is terrific and Scott becomes more understandable as his character is revealed. It's one of those books you want to go back, re-read and look for any subtle clues you missed. If you like mysteries and dogs, and ever wondered about K9s and their work, this is a great novel to savor. The narrator was spot on with his various voices for the characters in Suspect and added to the novel. Please enjoy!!

    Story
    "Not what I wanted from Crais"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Unlikely to recommend. If you expect Crais' usual sharp wit and fast-paced story, this is different. Not bad, just not what you usually expect


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Less dog voice


    What aspect of MacLeod Andrews’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing, great job


    Was Suspect worth the listening time?

    Not for me.


    Any additional comments?

    Nope, I still enjoy Crais but will read reviews and summaries more thoroughly before buying

    "Great police drama/ story"

    Excellent story built around the war story did "Maggie" and the two pack

    "A story for Dog Lovers!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Suspect to be better than the print version?

    Have not read the print version. Loved the audio tho


    What other book might you compare Suspect to and why?

    I would not compare it to others. It stands alone as a book thats worth the read. I really enjoyed it. Will be exploring more from this author.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I love the part where our hero discovers he really is a dog person.


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

    I was so involved in this book that almost everything else took second place. My husband was told to wait till the end of a chapter and I even listened as I was walking my dog....big no no but she is practically deaf so I think she will forgive me.


    Any additional comments?

    Fabulous, Fabulous Fabulous!
