Publisher's Summary

The new novel from New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder, "the master of the modern thriller", about a father who is forced to make a choice with unspeakable consequences.
When single father Danny Goodman suddenly finds himself unable to afford the private school his teenage daughter adores, he has no one to turn to for financial support.
In what seems like a stroke of brilliant luck, Danny meets Thomas Galvin, the father of his daughter’s new best friend, who also happens to be one of the wealthiest men in Boston. Galvin is aware of Danny's situation and out of the blue offers a $50,000 loan to help Danny cover his daughter's tuition. Uncomfortable but desperate, Danny takes the money, promising to pay Galvin back.
What transpires is something Danny never imagined. The moment the money is wired into his account, the DEA comes knocking on his door. Danny's impossible choice: an indictment for accepting drug money that he can't afford to fight in court, or an unthinkably treacherous undercover assignment helping the government get close to his new family friend.
As Danny begins to lie to everyone in his life, including those he loves most in the world, he must decide once and for all who the real enemy is or risk losing everything - and everyone - that matters to him.

How did this get published?

I've enjoyed many Joseph Finder books before, but this one was so bad I'm honestly surprised that it made it to press as is. I definitely think that if this had been submitted to publishers without Joseph Finder's name, it would never have been accepted.

The plot is not very original and you know how it will end from the very start, but that's not what disappointed me. The problem was that the author repeated the same unnecessary information over, and over, and over again. How many times in the same story do you have to hear about the fact that the milk is Lactaid when it has no bearing whatsoever on the story? When it states that he received a message to meet at the ihop of x street at 7:30pm, is it really necessary to make the next sentence "The meet had been set. They would meet at the ihop, on x street, at 7:30pm". That's how bad it was, and it was constant. It almost felt like a prank book.

I hate writing negative reviews, but I only do it in the hopes of saving someone a credit they will be sorry to loose.

Great Premise

Finder's Paranoia, Company Man, Power Play are huge favorites of mine. Suspicion has a wonderful premise and a great plot with ingenious twists. But it falls short, lacking character development and lacking detail in essential areas of the crimes and way too much with side characters.

I found the narration almost juvenile in terms of the reader's true voice. At times with a few characters he does well enough, but on the whole he's disappointing.

The story is worth a listen, but it give this book 3 stars.
