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 story!"

    The beginning of the story broke my heart and I loved that you're given Maggie's perspective towards her partners and the fierce protectiveness she has towards them.

    MacLeod Andrews was of course fantastic! I'm actually praying to see him in more movies!

    "loved it!"

    I am animal lover. I have read many stories involving animals. but, I had never read anybody talking from animal's point of view. The author has succeeded in bringing out a dog's way of thinking. it's absolutely wonderful. With a limited number of words at disposal, the dog is expected to think repeated words like "save alpha save pack alpha safe pack safe". I think this is closest we can ever go into a dog's mind.

    The performance was perfect, with the squeaky voices, commanding voices, the story came to life. The story itself is very nice and engaging. I would love to read/listen to mare stories by the author.

    "Doggie cute"

    Lots of dog thinking -- and an obvious slow slow slow plot that then suddenly accelerated to the end. I love dogs. But I need more than this to keep me reAding instead of out playing with my dog.

    Story
    "Dog lovers will love this"
    What made the experience of listening to Suspect the most enjoyable?

    Relationship that was built between the dog and the main character


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Maggie


    What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

    Well read, communicated the emotions as well as the story.


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

    Not really. That was the one thing that kept me from giving it a 5 stat rating. There were times that it was just a bit slow, and they were protracted, but even at that, it was still a great book. And, I didn't think I'd be saying that 1/3 of the way in. Stick with this one, you'll be happy you did.


    Any additional comments?

    Just loved it.
