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.

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.
