Description

The new novel from the "New York Times" bestselling author and "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. *"The Boston Globe ""show more

Review quote

Praise for "Suspicion" "A can't-miss thriller..."Suspicion" is arguably Joseph Finder's best novel to date, and he's one of the best thriller writers in the business. He's a master at making the reader feel every emotion, jump at every shock and squirm with every twist that Danny must overcome." --Associated Press "["Suspicion"] sets the suspense level to a pitch that will keep even the coolest readers sweating."--"The Boston Globe" "Lock yourself in a room with "Suspicion "and don't come out until you've read every last word. Completely original, emotionally satisfying, expertly twisted, and genuinely entertaining. "Suspicion" is the thriller to read this year. I loved it." --Lisa Gardner "Joseph Finder has always been out there on the front edge of things. With "Suspicion" he does it again, giving us a novel that is as timely and cognizant of contemporary society as it is a startling seat of the pants thrill ride. In Finder's hands one man's fight for survival becomes an everyman's journey to the light." --Michael Connelly ""Suspicion" is Joseph Finder at the absolute top of his form: a heart-pounding, sweaty-palmed, utterly terrifying ride." --Tess Gerritsen "Is this Joseph Finder's best thriller yet? It gets my vote. So many twists and shocks. It kept me reading all night." --R.L. Stine "Finder fans as well as devotees of action-packed suspense have a great read ahead.

However, the real genius knows how to create the ultimate lead-in. They are the wordsmiths who can, in one page or one paragraph, grab the reader's attention and never let go...A true genius wordsmith, this is one author who hassshow more
