Suspect book review:

Another Playaway Audio Book I greatly enjoyed was Suspect By Robert Crais. For those of you who are dog lovers, this suspense drama follows the life of a highly trained dog. First of all we find Maggie in Afghanistan and then later she becomes a police dog.

Having had many dogs during my life-time, I learnt more about the needs of dogs listening to this novel. Maggie suffers from post-traumatic stress syndrome after her time in Afghanistan, and is able to help Scott rehabilitate too. He is suffering from the same condition. The gentle intimacies and needs of both are explored, showing Maggie’s need to guard and protect. This emotional story follows a police drama, wanting to solve the case involving the death of Scott’s partner.

A must for any dog lover.photo

Another ten minute free write.

    That sounds wonderful, Barbara! I love Robert Crais’ books, but I haven’t read this one yet — I shall definitely do so now, though 🙂
    We had a wonderful dog who died (of old age, after a very good life) some 10 years ago and we haven’t been able to replace him, though we’ve tried several times. Every time we’ve taken a new dog into our home since Rumbaugh died something weird has happened. I’m beginning to wonder if we’re just not meant to have another dog …

      I do hope you can find a dog that suits you Paula. Our present dog took some time to adjust to after out 2 cocker spaniels. Millie is a delight now she’s over the puppy phase.
      One can never replace an old dog, their memory will always live on. ❤

        Maybe you would use different voices, high pitched when he needs a ‘good boy’ voice….
        I assume the author learnt the detail from looking at the training that goes on for these dogs. 🙂
