I’ve been a big Joseph Finder fan since Paranoia. His thrillers always grab me from the beginning, and I inevitably stay up many late nights, unable to put his books down. Suspicion was no exception. It’s the story of Danny Goodman, a single dad who accepts a generous loan from Thomas Galvin, the wealthy father of his daughter’s BFF. “It’s to ensure my daughter’s happiness,” Galvin insists. If Danny’s daughter, Abby, is forced to leave their school, Galvin knows his daughter will be devastated. Danny reluctantly agrees and the next thing he knows, the DEA comes knocking on his door. Danny just made a deal with the devil and the only way to avoid jail time, or worse, is to cooperate. What follows is a violent cat-and-mouse game of deceit and lies that will leave you guessing who the real enemy is all the way to the end.
One bad choice gets a father caught up in a deadly situation in this electrifying thriller from New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder.
Single father Danny Goodman suddenly finds himself unable to afford the private school his daughter adores. Then Danny meets Thomas Galvin, the father of his daughter's new best friend and one of the wealthiest men in Boston. Out of the blue Galvin offers a loan to help Danny out. Desperate, he takes the money, promising to pay it back.
But the moment the money is wired into his account, the DEA comes knocking. Danny’s impossible choice: an indictment for accepting drug money, or a treacherous assignment to help the government get close to his new best friend.
As Danny begins to lie to everyone in his life, including those he loves most, he must decide once and for all who the real enemy is or risk losing everything—and everyone—that matters to him.
