Written by Robert Crais, but completely wrapped in newspaper, I still chose the book, Suspect. I placed it, still wrapped, on the seat beside me as I drove home. I have been choosing Rate My Date books from our local library since the 2nd week in February.
When I tore off the wrapping, my heart was excited to see one of my favorite dogs on the front cover, a german shepherd. I started reading the prologue, The Green Ball. I was pulled in right away because the subjects were Marines, both Pete and his dog, Maggie.
Their strength, tragic loss, love, fierce determination, and dedication were so powerful that I was crying before I began the first chapter. I am heading in to chapter 7 and if I did not have to make dinner for my family, I would put on my jammies and read all night.
