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).

    "Good dog"

    Excellent performance in a well paced story. Maybe a little bit predictable but still very enjoyable.

    "I'm a dog person.."

    I love how much of this story is from Maggie's POV. How many people really understand what military working dogs and police K9 officers really do??? or how they are trained?

    Thank you.

    "great story with some minor annoyances"

    the author did a great job creating a story that I wanted to see unfold. There were some things that I like a lot and some things that I found were minor annoyances. I absolutely loved the fact that there were some chapters that actually work from the dog's point of view. these were extremely well-written chapters that I really enjoyed listening to. This story was interesting and I did not feel like the the prizes were ruined earlier on in the story and anyway. Overall it was a great story. There were some things that I found to be minor annoyances. One is that the author used the main character's name repeatedly at the beginning of nearly every sentence. I heard the name so much that I really wanted to punch something. there are also a few times in which he would repeat something some facts from before in a previous chapter. it wasn't as though these facts were extremely crucial, and therefore needed to be reiterated. They usually hit only been mentioned only a few minutes ago and therefore seemed redundant and kind of annoying. regardless the annoying parts were not so annoying that I dislike the book in any way. I highly recommend it.

    "Love dogs? You will love this story."

    I don't care who dies in a story, as long as the dog lives.
    Not the most literary story but still kept me on the edge in it's mystery.
    The best part was the relationship between Scott and Maggie.

    Story
    "NOT a good dog story - very disappointing : ("

    Wow, what a let down. I was expecting a lot more because I do like dogs, however, the plot was sort of silly and not realistic. I also extremely disliked the narrator's baby talk when he was talking to the dog.

    Definitely not one of Robert Crais' best mystery thrillers even though it got pretty good reviews. This is the first book I've ever read by him, and I am a little nervous about investing in any more of his books. Many of his fans love his Elvis Cole - Joe Pike books, so I may just try one of those books to see if they are much better than "Suspect."

    "Great find for me"

    Wow, this is the first Robert Crais book I have ever listened to (or read for that matter) and I was completely absorbed from the beginning. Good from the start, and it just picked up speed from there. MacLeod Andrews did a wonderful job of presenting the "Pack" relationship that Crais had created for his main characters. I will certainly search for other things that Andrews has narrated and check into all the earlier writings that Crais has available.
