Stephanie shut off their patrol car to please him. They could have been anywhere else, but he led her there, that night, to that silent intersection. It was so quiet that night, they spoke of it.Unnaturally quiet.*Stephanie frowned.“You sure you know where you’re going?”“I know where I’m going. Just hang on.”Scott was trying to find an all-night noodle house that a Rampart burglary detective had raved about, one of those pop-up places that takes over an empty storefront for a couple months, hypes itself on Twitter, then disappears.Scott was trying to figure out how he had screwed up the directions when he suddenly heard it.“Listen.”“What?”“Shh, listen. Turn off the engine.”“You have no idea where this place is, do you?”“You have to hear this. Listen.”Uniformed LAPD officer Stephanie Andress, a P-III with eleven years on the job, shifted into park, turned off their Adam car, and stared at him. She had a fine tan face, with lines at the corners of her eyes, and short sandy hair.Scott James, a thirty-two-year-old P-II with six years on the job, grinned as he touched his ear, telling her to listen. Stephanie seemed lost for a moment, then blossomed with a wide smile.“It’s quiet.”“Crazy, huh? No radio calls. No chatter. I can’t even hear the freeway.”Stephanie reached to start the car, but Scott stopped her.“Let’s sit for a minute. How many times you hear silence like this?”“Never. This is so cool, it’s creeping me out.”“Don’t worry. I’ll protect you.”Stephanie laughed, and Scott loved how the streetlights gleamed in her eyes. He wanted to touch her hand, but didn’t. They had been partners for seven months, but now Scott was leaving, and there were things he wanted to say.“You’ve been a good partner.”“Are you going to get all gooey on me?”“Yeah. Kinda.”“Okay, well, I’m going to miss you.”“I’m going to miss you more.”Their little joke. Everything a competition, even to who would miss the other the most. He wanted to touch her hand again, but then she reached out and took his hand in hers, and gave him a squeeze.“No, you’re not. You’re going to kick ass, take names, and have a blast. It’s what you want, man, and I couldn’t be happier. You’re a stud.”Scott laughed. He had played football for two years at the University of Redlands before blowing his knee, then spent four years as an MP in the United States Marine Corps. He joined LAPD after the Marines, and took night classes for the next four years to finish his degree. Scott James had goals. He was young, determined, and competitive, and wanted to run with the big dogs. He had been accepted into LAPD’s Metro Division, the elite uniformed division that backed up area-based officers throughout the city. Scott’s transfer to Metro would come at the end of the week.Stephanie was still holding his hand, and Scott was wondering what she meant by it when an enormous Bentley sedan appeared at the end of the street, as out of place in this neighborhood as a flying carpet.At the moment the Bentley reached the intersecting street, a deep throaty growl shattered the perfect silence, and a black Kenworth truck exploded from the cross street. It T-boned the Bentley so hard the seven-thousand-pound sedan rolled completely over and came to rest right side up on the opposite side of the street. The Kenworth skidded sideways, and stopped blocking the street.Stephanie said, “Holy crap!”Scott slapped on their flashers, and pushed out of the car. He was three paces ahead, and closer to the Bentley.“I got the Batmobile. You get the truck.”Stephanie broke into a trot, and the two veered apart. No one and nothing else moved on the street except steam hissing from beneath the Bentley’s hood.They had gone less than a car length when bright yellow bursts flashed within the truck, and a hammering chatter echoed between the buildings.Scott thought something was exploding within the truck’s cab, then bullets ripped into their patrol car and the Bentley with the thunder of steel rain. Scott instinctively jumped sideways as Stephanie went down. She screamed once, and wrapped her arms across her chest.“I’m shot. Oh, crap—”Scott dropped to the ground and covered his head. Bullets sparked off the concrete around him and gouged ruts in the street.Move. Do something.Scott rolled sideways, drew his pistol, and fired at the flashes as fast as he could. He pushed to his feet, and zigzagged toward his partner as an older, dark gray sedan screamed down the street. It screeched to a stop beside the Bentley, but Scott barely saw it. He fired blindly at the truck as he ran, and zigged hard toward his partner.Stephanie was clutching herself as if doing stomach crunches. Scott grabbed her arm. He realized the men in the truck had stopped firing and thought he and Stephanie might make it even as she screamed.Three men wearing black masks and bulky jackets boiled out of the sedan with pistols and shotguns, and lit up the Bentley, shattering the glass and punching holes in its body. As they fired, two more masked men climbed from the truck with AK-47 rifles.Scott dragged Stephanie toward their black-and-white, slipped in her blood, then started backward again.The first man out of the truck was tall and thin, and immediately opened fire into the Bentley’s windshield. The second man was thick, with a large gut that bulged out over his belt. He turned away from the Bentley, swung his rifle toward Scott, and the AK-47 bloomed with yellow flowers.Something punched Scott hard in the thigh, and he lost his grip on Stephanie and his pistol. He sat down hard, looked at his thigh, and saw blood welling from his leg. Scott picked up his pistol, fired two more shots, and his pistol locked open. Empty. He pushed to his knees, and took Stephanie’s arm again.“I’m dying."”Scott said, “No, you’re not. I swear to God, you’re not.”A second bullet slammed into the top of his shoulder, knocking him down. Scott lost Stephanie and his pistol again, and his left arm went numb.The big man must have thought Scott was done. He turned to his friends, and when he did, Scott left Stephanie, and pushed toward their patrol car like a broken crab, dragging his useless leg and pushing with his good. The car was their only cover. If he made it to the car, he could use it as a weapon or a shield.Scott keyed his shoulder mike as he scuttled backward and whispered as loudly as he dared.“Officer down! Shots fired, shots fired! One-adam-sixty-two, we’re dying out here!”The men from the gray sedan threw open the Bentley’s doors and fired inside. Scott glimpsed passengers, but saw only shadows. Then the firing stopped, and Stephanie called out behind him. Her voice bubbled with blood, and cut him like knives.“Don’t leave me! Scotty, don’t leave!”Scott pushed harder, desperate to reach the car. Shotgun in the car. Keys in the ignition.“DON’T LEAVE ME!”“I’m not, baby. I’m not.”“COME BACK!”Scott was five yards from their patrol car when the big man heard Stephanie. He turned, saw Scott, then lifted his rifle and fired.Scott James felt the third impact as the bullet punched through his vest and ribs on the lower right side of his chest. The pain was intense, and quickly grew worse as his abdominal cavity filled with pooling blood.Scott slowed to a stop. He tried to crawl farther, but his strength was gone. He leaned back on an elbow, and waited for the big man to shoot him again, but the big man turned toward the Bentley.Sirens were coming.Black figures were inside the Bentley, but Scott couldn’t see what they were doing. The driver of the gray sedan twisted to see them, and pulled up his mask as he turned. Scott saw a flash of white on the man’s cheek, and then the men in and around the Bentley ran into the waiting gray car. The men from the Kenworth climbed inside with them.The big man was the last. He hesitated by the sedan’s open door, once more looked at Scott, and raised his rifle.Scott screamed.“NO!”Scott tried to jump out of the way as the sirens faded into a soothing voice.“Wake up, Scott.”“NO!”“Three, two, one—”Nine months and sixteen days after he was shot that night, nine months and sixteen days after he saw his partner murdered, Scott James screamed when he woke.

Great novel, Crais at his best. For all Crais lovers. He turns reality into great fiction. I don't know where he finds all his great ideas for a story.

Récit très bien documenté sur les comportements canins. La fragilité des deux héros, le détective et sa chienne, rendent l'intrigue encore plus intéressante que d'habitude chez Robert Crais. Je pense que les lecteurs qui n'ont pas la passion des chiens peuvent être moins enthousiastes.

Awesome book! We feel great sadness for the reviewer who failed to appreciate the accuracy and insight of Crais's description of human animal relationships. We don't know he did it but Crais captured the human dog interaction as well as we have ever seen. Dogs were not literally domesticated, as were cattle and horses. They and humans developed a symbolic relationship. There is interdependence, not co-dependence, which exists nowhere else in nature on such a regular basis.

My wife and I have been rescuing severely abused Dobermans since 1995. We have taken dogs that other good people have not been able to help. Fortunately we have had significant success. Crais compressed the time needed for rehabilitation in these cases as he acknowledges, but the overall description is something only truly recognized by those who have experienced it. We have had dogs who were almost beaten to death, or starved past saving, or so injured as to require months of daily care. And they have come back to be the most loving and caring companions imaginable.

My wife and I both are Criminal Justice Professionals and receive threats on a regular basis. My my wife has been disabled for the last 5 years, yet I never have to worry about her at home by herself because four large Dobermans stand guard with their lives and provide constant love and companionship. They also guard and include in their pack our four cats.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 SUSPECT---A Gripping and Wonderful Story 22 janvier 2013
Par Tired Turtle - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This tale will grip you from the first page. I have not read a book in one sitting for many years--but I did read Robert Crais' latest "Suspect" with only a few interruptions for soda and snack. The two new members of the Crais cast are a wounded military dog named Maggie and a wounded LA Cop named Scott James. Though both are badly damaged they refuse to quit on their chosen careers and join forces to both heal themselves, vanquish their own hidden demons and still pursue the murderous pack who killed Scott's partner and almost killed him. For the older readers this is a "grown up" tale of a man and his dog in the genre of the best episodes of Rin-Tin-Tin or Lassie, which were popular in our youth. It is rewarding to watch as these two seriously wounded individuals bond and become a cohesive "pack" looking out for each other's welfare and aiding each other in their quest for justice and healing. Let us hope this is the first in a long running series of Scott and Maggie adventures. I very highly recommend this book. Robert Crais has excelled with this new offering. Do not miss out--pick it up and read it. Though, fair warning--once you start reading you won't stop till the final page is turned.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Maggie and Scott...I want more. 25 janvier 2013
Par Zim - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié|Achat vérifié
I could not put it down. I read it too fast and now must wait forever for a new book. Mr. Crais, please stop being so cruel and give us more than one book a year. Now I don't know what to wish for...Elvis and Joe or Scott and Maggie. I love them all. I really hope there will be more Scott and Maggie books. Maybe Mr. Crais could give us one Scott and Maggie book and one Elvis and Joe book a year. Sounds like a good idea, huh?

5.0 étoiles sur 5 "A MASTERPIECE OF CRIME, LOYALTY, AND HEROISM!" 22 janvier 2013
Par Geraldine Ahearn - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Relié
Bestselling author, Robert Crais delivers a crime thriller that draws the reader in immediately with a compelling story that mesmerizes from beginning to end. I love dogs from when I was a child, and love crime thrillers, and this author creates a story with unforgettable characters as you crave for more. This is my first read of this author, but it will not be my last. My only regret is not finding his books in the past. Robert Crais does not disappoint, and I rate him as high as I value the books of James Patterson. The story begins with the life history of Maggie, a military dog, injured in the line of duty. Scott James, a police officer, also injured in the line of duty teams up with Maggie to work together on investigations of finding evidence for Scott's shooting, and his partner's killer. Maggie and Scott have a lot in common as they try to combat their disabilities, and learn a great deal from each other. The bond they share could never be broken as their trust continues to build. The author draws a colorful portrait as he portrays the true meaning of dedication and loyalty, while introducing to the reader the training and commitment required to work as such a team. This riveting, emotional story is told through the eyes of Maggie as it tugs at the heart. A mystery of corruption, greed, murder, and much more. The hero is a character we will remember, long after this book is closed. Entertaining, heartfelt, suspenseful, and highly recommended!
