ARC AUDIO BOOK REVIEW: Suspect by Scott Turow
Publisher: Grand Central
For as long as Lucia Gomez has been the police chief in the city of
Highland Isle, near Kindle County, she has known that any woman in law
enforcement must walk a precarious line between authority and camaraderie
to gain respect. She has maintained a spotless reputation—until now.
Three male police officers have accused her of soliciting sex in exchange
for promotions to higher ranks. With few people left who she can trust,
Chief Gomez turns to an old friend, Rik Dudek, to act as her attorney in
the federal grand jury investigation, insisting to Rik that the
accusations against her are part of an ugly smear campaign designed to
destroy her career and empower her enemies—both outside the police force
Clarice “Pinky” Granum spent most of her youth experimenting with an impressive array of drugs and failing out of various professions, including the police academy. Pinky knows that in the eyes of most people, she's nothing but a screwup—but she doesn't trust most people's opinions anyway. Moreover, she finally has a respectable-enough job as a licensed P.I. working for Rik on his roster of mostly minor cases, like workman's comp, DUIs and bar fights. Rik's shabby office and even shabbier cases are a far cry from the kinds of high-profile criminal matters Pinky became familiar with in the law office of her grandfather, Sandy Stern. But Rik and Pinky feel that Chief Gomez’s case, which has attracted national attention, is their chance to break into the legal big leagues.
Guided by her gut instinct and razor-sharp investigative skills, Pinky dives headfirst into a twisted scandal that will draw her into the deepest recesses of the city’s criminal networks, as well as the human mind. But she will need every scrap of tenacity and courage to unravel the dark secrets those closest to her are determined to keep hidden.
