Clarice “Pinky” Granum has a lot to live up to in Kindle County. She is the granddaughter of the legendary defense attorney Alejandro “Sandy” Stern. A one-time promising police academy candidate, she was tossed after flunking a drug test. She works as an investigator for her cousin Rik Dudek. Dudek is defending police chief Lucia Gomez, who is accused of extorting sexual favors for promotions. Pinky delves into the motives of Gomez’s accusers, along with any potential enemies seeking to dethrone the chief.
Pinky’s personal life is chaotic, her relationships with her parents are strained, and her love life is messy. She seeks counsel from her sage Grandfather. While investigating the case, she becomes obsessed with a neighbor in her building. Despite her own best judgment, she starts following the neighbor, and complications ensue. The extortion case isn’t without its own issues and soon threatens to blow up in their faces.
Suspect is the newest mesmerizing work from the brilliant mind of Scott Turow. The citizens of Kindle County never cease to be interesting; their stories are complex, their motives opaque, and their sins are countless. Turow continues to write legal mysteries that grasp the reader and refuse to let go. An A+ read.
