Suspect

by Robert Crais

Penguin Publishing Group | January 7, 2014 | Trade Paperback

Suspect is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
One of Booklist's 10 Best Crime Fiction Books of the Year

LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well. Nine months ago, a shocking 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. A German shepherd who survived two tours in Afghanistan sniffing explosives before losing her handler, her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s.

They are each other’s last chance. And they’re about to investigate the one case no one wants them to touch: identifying the men who murdered Stephanie. But what they find could ultimately break them both.

Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A page turner "Masterpiece" may be excessive but this book is a quick, easy, thoroughly enjoyable read. Characters to care about, unpredictable reactions (how unusual, the hero doesn't know better than everyone else!). What's not to like? Police procedural and a dog.
