For twenty-five 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 ).

Well, if you love dogs (as I do) you will enjoy this book. However, frankly without the dog angle, it is really just another police whodunit book.

This was the first Robert Crais title for me to read/ listen to... and it was stunningly good. Perfect plotting. Deeply credible characters populate this well researched book, including a U.S. Marine dog with traumatic stress syndrome. I found it part funny, part sad, but always interesting.. I have never seen a better characterization of a dog psyche The audio was very well done.

This novel kept me reading until 2 am. The characters were fascinating and I was always trying to guess what the outcome would be.

This is a departure from the Smart Ass, Elvis Cole books Crais is known and loved for writing. A great book for dog lovers or people that enjoy a good animal story. Several twists and turns but most of all a great story.

This hard hitting riveting story of a cop and his doggedness is well worth the read or listen. Mr. Crais is a master of suspense and a true writer of thrills. 9 of 10 stars
