Dog. Robert Crais leaves behind the familiar characters from his previous novel, and offers readers a four-legged protagonist in his latest novel, Suspect. Maggie is a German shepherd who suffers from PTSD following three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan and the death of her handler from an IED explosion. Maggie’s new pack leader is LAPD officer Scott James who also suffers from PTSD following the death of his partner and his own injuries. Crais engages readers quickly in the story of Maggie and Scott, and along the way explores all levels of “suspect.” Maggie is a good dog, and Scott is a good guy, and most readers will come away from this story feeling pretty good. I know I did. Rating: Four-star (I like it) Click here to purchase Suspect from amazon.com.
