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
    "Suspect should be made into a film. WOW factor +++"
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    This book was so good. It tugs at your heartstrings, paints a graphic picture of both Scott & Maggie & weaves a web of intrigue.


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    If you mean dog training, I have already applied it to a family pet & it is working. I have already read 2 more Crais books.


    Does the author present information in a way that is interesting and insightful, and if so, how does he achieve this?

    He certainly does. I learnt a great deal about dogs and their training.Robert Crais painted a very graphic, detailed picture of Maggie's smelling abilities which became an integral part of the book.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    Nothing. It was amazing


    Do you have any additional comments?

    I listended to Suspect twice straight off. My husband couldn't stop listening as well.

    "best Crais book I have listened to"
    What made the experience of listening to Suspect the most enjoyable?

    The mingling of suspense and the main character's relationship with the dog. Also, the parts of the story from the dog's POV were very intertwining.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Suspect?

    When maggie would not let anyone approach her wounded owner. Finally the owner, said to maggie to get the bad guys. It was fun picturing all this occurring.


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

    There were moments when I actually wept listening to the interaction of the dog and owner.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked this book very much. I like Robert Crais and this was, in my humble opinion, one of his best books.

    "Wonderfully Intertaining"

    If you are looking for a book to intertain, keep you up half the night because you didn't want to stop listening, and leave you with a warm and fuzzy feeling at the end. This is the book for you. My husband also listened and enjoyed it. I have liked reading Robert Crais, but this is definitaly one of his best.

    "What! No Elvis Cole? No Joe Pike? No worries..."

    I’ve been a fan of Robert Crais since his first book, written in 1987: The Monkey’s Raincoat. Suffice it to say, Suspect has two extraordinary characters that I hope to hear from again and again; enter Scott James and Maggie. You will cry. You will turn pages faster and faster and in the brilliant finale you will shed tears of joy. I truly loved this book and hope you will too.

    "This is about HEROS of a different breed!"
    Where does Suspect rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    ThisBook is not only well written, it is very real and helps the listner understand the dedication of men and the dogs they work with. Understanding the interaction of the two main charactors makes it hard to turn off !


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maggie and her handler are both fragile and their relationship is beyond comment.


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

    No! Very impressed.


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

    Maggie's loyalty to pack in the beginning is very real and you end up praying they save her.


    Any additional comments?

    Our son-in-law is Military Cannine and has talked to us about the dogs he works with like they are family. The truth and honesty of the training of these animals earns and deserves out attention and respect. This is an awesome story.
