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).

    "Great book!"
    Where does Suspect rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    At the very top. It's so good that I am worried that most other books will be a letdown.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story being in great part done from Maggie's (K-9) point of view.


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

    Superb delivery


    Any additional comments?

    Anyone that has any liking to dogs and/or military or police should definitely read this book

    "Grab a tissue for the 1st couple of hrs........"

    Not only was this a very touching story, it was an excellent mystery. This was a first for me from this author. I had heard so much about this so I thought I would give it a try. I was very impressed.

    Maggie is a marine dog that lost her partner and friend Pete. She and police officer Scott James are put together. Scott also lost his partner in the line of duty. A beautiful friendship develops. Scott and Maggie set out to find the killers of his partner.

    I am hoping this turns into a series. I would love to read more about Maggie and Scott.

    Definitely a 5 star book for me.

    "Great read, great dog."

    An excellent read. And as a devoted pet parent to a 3 year old German Shepherd, I can say that the author got the dog right in every respect. When the narrative switched to Maggie's point of view, I could see and hear my own girl every time. How she learned, how she responded, her pack instinct, her protective instincts, all on the mark. Great job.

    Story
    "Couldn’t get enough!"

    I can sum this book up in one word – Triumph. The prologue is so riveting, I literally gasped with the intensity as my eyes welled up with tears. Ok, so I’m a sissy and my heart breaks in two when it comes to animals and soldiers, but still. The prologue is mind blowingly brilliant.

    And then there’s the rest of the book. I could almost feel Maggie’s doggie breath on my face and touch her fur with the palm of my hand. I fell in love with her from the very first second and the moment the book came to an end, it left an empty hole behind.

    My only complaint is that the book is too short. Robert Crais and MacLeod Andrews, for goodness sake please make a sequel together, I’m having withdrawal symptoms!

    Would you listen to Suspect again? Why?

    I would listen to this again.


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Andrew's did a superb job breathing life into this book. The book itself was awesome. Robert Crais is an amazing author, but this performance made it even better!


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

    Definitely! I actually did listen to it all in one sitting!

    "You Had Me at the Prologue..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Suspect to be better than the print version?

    I didn't the read the print version.


    What other book might you compare Suspect to and why?

    I can't think of a comparison right now.


    Which character – as performed by MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

    Both Scott and Maggie were my favorites. They always say a dog will overshadow any of the characters but in this case they shared the main stage. I cared deeply about what happened to both main characters. Scott for his Drive and perseverence and Maggie for her loyalty and love.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The prologue and chapter 1 took my breath away.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    The main character gives this book a slight edge on normal detective novels.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The conversations from the dog's view point add a lot to the story telling


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

    Yes

    "Loved, loved, loved this novel!!!"

    I love to read (listen) to be entertained--this book was everything I hope for when I start a book. It starts with a bang--literally--and continues on with a totally fulfilling experience. You have empathy for the main characters (in this case man and dog), and hope with every turn of the page (so to speak!), they work things out and succeed in the end. And kudos to the narrator--he did a great job as well!

    I have not read anything else by this author, but that will change. I intend to look for more novels to listen to, and hope they are all as well written and entertaining as Suspect.

    I loved the growing bond between the dog and the main character.

    don't know.

    believable


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    yes, I'm a real animal lover and a real hater of injustice, so it kept me wound up until there was a happy ending.
