Summary of Suspicion Summary of Suspicion Reviews for Suspicion An Excerpt from Suspicion
The thriller to read in 2014, about a single father who is forced to make a choice with unspeakable consequences—from New York Times bestselling author Joseph Finder
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 best 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.
PRAISE FOR JOSEPH FINDER AND HIS NOVELS
“The master of the modern thriller.”
—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.”
“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.”
“Suspicion is Joseph Finder at the absolute top of his form: a heart-pounding, sweaty-palmed, utterly terrifying ride.”
“Getting a grip on the modern corporate world has always been more difficult for fiction writers. I think Joe Finder does it better than anyone.”
—Malcolm Gladwell on Killer Instinct
“Jet-propelled . . . this twisting, stealthily plotted story . . . weaves a tangled and ingeniously enveloping web . . . [with a] killer twist for the end.”
—The New York Times on Paranoia
“Last year belonged to Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code . . . this year’s first contender for Page-turner of the Year is Joseph Finder’s Paranoia.”
“Exciting . . . deliciously absorbing . . . full of hairpin turns.”
—The Washington Post on High Crimes
"A powerhouse tale."
