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).

    "Best book ever!"

    I have read hundreds of books in audio format, and this was best ever. Great characters, story, and performance. Using the dog's point of view at times was a great plot device and really added to the experience.

    "Gripping"

    This story had me hooked from the moment it began. Loved it. Superb performance, and thrilling to listen to...not much of a dog man, but this nearly changes my mind!

    What made the experience of listening to Suspect the most enjoyable?

    Great team of author and narrator. I was hooked on the story within just few moments, and the narrator read it all perfectly.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Leland because I love really tough guys with soft hearts.


    Have you listened to any of MacLeod Andrews’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and he is always good. He is now on my favorites list. Searching by narrator is now a new thing for me, and I am not disappointed.


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

    I cried during the PROLOGUE!! Not 10 minutes in and I was hooked and sobbing. I have quick tears for animals in any kind of pain--physical, abandonment, mistreatment. I loved seeing things through Maggie's eyes and heart. And then, my heart swells with pride and sorrow for our soldiers and our police.
