Danny Goodman is a struggling writer and single father, working to raise his daughter alone after his ex-wife dies of cancer. His daughter, Abby, has grown accustomed to attending a private (and expensive) high school and when Danny is once again behind in paying tuition, he gets desperate. So desperate that when Thomas Gavin, the father of Abby’s best friend and one of the wealthiest men in Boston, offers him a loan of $50,000, Danny can’t turn him down.
It isn’t long before Danny regrets his decision. Not long after the money appears in his bank account, the DEA threatens to send him to prison for accepting drug money. His only hope for survival is to cooperate with them by providing enough evidence to arrest Thomas Gavin. Danny is forced to lie to those most important in his life, soon realizing the severity of his decision.
Suspicion is one of those very rare books that captures your attention from the first few pages, refusing to relent until the very end. Those wary of investing a book of this size need not worry, for the intensity and plight of this poor single father makes you forget the length of the book and the pages will fly by in an instant. Finder so expertly inserts plot twists that will send you reeling, forcing you, like Danny himself, to question who he can trust.
While there are some gruesome murder scenes, I do believe Suspicion is a perfect thriller to curl up with poolside. Finder holds nothing back and gives nothing away, expertly wrapping everything up into a stunning and completely shocking ending. Highly, highly recommended.
