They’re unlikely partners—and for both of them, this is their last chance. Eight months ago, LAPD officer Scott James was ambushed by masked attackers and his partner, Stephanie, was killed. Now, Scott, sidelined by post-traumatic stress disorder, is torn by rage and shame. Then he’s assigned his new—four-legged—partner: Maggie, a German shepherd who’s as damaged as Scott is. The dog served in Afghanistan until her handler died in an IED explosion; now, she, too, has PTSD. Scott still burns to find Stephanie’s killers, and Maggie has one weapon left in her arsenal: absolute loyalty. In Robert Crais’ Suspect, man and dog must rely on one another as they face their nightmares anew in a world in which nothing is what it seemed.

I liked this book, but I can't say I loved it. The plot is really beside the point, the book is mainly about Scott's and Maggie's developing relationship. I look forward to more stories about these two.

This book is great to show that both humans and animals can suffer from the same things. I echo another person - I hope there will be more Maggie stories.
Finished this book in one waking day. It was so refreshing and real! I loved the pairing of man and dog as well as how the author maintain a meaningful dialogue, verbal as well as intuitive between man and animal. Just a perfect portrayal of the fidelity and healing that can occur between humans and dogs. Wonderful reading!!
Loved this book from start to finish. One of my favorite books this year. If you are a Robert Crais fan or a dog lover do not skip this book.
