Two broken spirits search for redemption in Robert Crais's new crime thriller Suspect. One is Scott James, a Los Angeles cop who's been suffering from post-traumatic stress disorder since he and his partner were attacked several months earlier. The nighttime blitz left James angry and humiliated. Even so, he got off easy; his partner was killed. The other is Maggie, a German shepherd who served three tours in Iraq but was severely traumatized when her handler was killed by an IED. The pair must make their new partnership work or they'll both be removed from duty. Their first case? Finding the men who killed James's partner.
