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).

Suspect

What did you love best about Suspect?

The relationships between Maggie and the men in her life.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Hard to pick just one, so it has to be Maggie and Scott

What about MacLeod Andrews’s performance did you like?

Great performance with the many different characters

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

I don't usually cry listening to books, but there were a couple of times that I cried with what was happening with Maggie.

Any additional comments?

The first book of the series and I have since read the second which is just as good.

loved maggie and scott, write more!

i loved maggie's story- the details of her abilities- like, how precise and how much she can smell. plus, the way she related to scott, in the car or when she was afraid or happy. the author must of taken time to know how dogs will act. scott is young and ambitious at the beginning of the story. as the story progressed i liked him more and more as he was learning and changing. scott's youth or inexperience meant he made foolish mistakes, which provoked me a bit. but maggie helped him in several of those occasions. this is only one way that they make a great team. i hope to read many more stories with maggie and scott.

Loved this book!

I loved this book! I am an animal lover to the point that I sometimes can't watch or even listen to anything where animals are hurt or killed. (Even Disney movies) So, I was almost afraid to listen to this book. I am so glad I did. It was a very good story with good characters and the performance was really good. I will most definitely look for more books by this author and narrator.
