liked it

I enjoyed Suspect, almost most of it. But it is not a great book.

The story is too formulaic. The mystery is predictable. Most of the characters are not built well. Every plot "twist" can be seen chapters ahead. Even the narration is too simplistic. It is linear with the problems introduced in a chapter and solved right in the next one. There is simply no tension.

However, the overall book is a breezy read. No part gets boring. I especially liked the parts where it was just about Scott and Maggie, the German Shepherd. The bonding between them is developed really well. You care for both. And that's where lies the strength of the novel. I just wish it was backed by a nice crime mystery.
