(Hear Drake & Zeke’s interview with Robert Crais here)
SUSPECT is NOT an Elvis and Joe novel. It is not about Jon Stone or John Chen.
Scott is an LAPD officer whose partner, Stephanie, was murdered. Maggie was a USMC German shepherd patrol dog who lost her handler in Afghanistan. Now Scott and Maggie are an LAPD K9 team nobody trusts–damaged goods who are wounded, scared, and suspect.
Scott and Maggie now have no one but each other. They will help each other learn to trust and love again, or die in the hunt for Stephanie’s killers.
Praise for SUSPECT
“Action-packed, deeply touching and sure to be one of the best-written and most original crime novels of the year.”—Associated Press
“The most multifaceted and appealing new protagonist in crime fiction this year just may turn out to be a dog—and a hard-boiled dog, to boot… A read-in-one-sitting thriller, plot- and character driven in equal measures.”—Booklist (starred review)
“Maggie is one gorgeous girl, altogether worthy of playing a leading role in SUSPECT, Robert Crais’s heart-tugging novel about two wounded war veterans who nudge each other back to life after suffering a traumatic loss . . . [Maggie] holds us captive, enthralled by Crais’s perceptive depiction of her amazing capabilities.”—Marilyn Stasio, The New York Times Book Review
