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).

    "TEEN NOVEL"

    I have always enjoyed RC's work and found his books well crafted in a made-for-TV sort of way. Pike is a particular favorite, but even he is more than a little cartoonish,

    Suspect is a dumbed-down, transparent story that is more about what goes on (theoretically) inside a canine's noggin. As a dog lover (3 Basenjis), I could relate somewhat, but as a mystery lover, this is too much like "My Friend Flicka".

    Should be in the 'Young Adult' Section.

    "boring and predictable"

    I was pretty sure I'd enjoy a mystery with a dog-cop partnership but it followed the formula of damaged goods struggling with ghosts of that which damaged them but Yeah! it all turns out okay. Boring.

    "A bit slow of a read"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    As a dog lover the insights into the bond between master and dog, how a dog senses and behaves were quite good, but the story was a little too slow for me especially at the beginning.

    "I don't understand the hype?"

    I bought this audiobook for the rave reviews, and I was pretty disappointed. I didn't 'hate' it, but I found the storyline to be predictable and a little corny. I also thought the characters were flat, lacking in both depth and dimension. For me, it was just meh. If you read A LOT of books, as I do, you'll most likely agree that there are better crime mysteries out there. I've been more excited by Law & Order reruns.

    "I loved Maggie!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    OMG, I loved this book. The story had me almost in tears in the first 5 minutes. The reader is excellent, and I so loved the dog.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I would say I was concerned!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end! It was perfect.


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

    the heartbreak of Maggie made me cry. I love dogs, and the story captured a dog's personality perfectly.


    Any additional comments?

    If you love dogs, you will love this book. I did.
