Format:Mass Market Paperback
Be prepared for shocking sexual scenes and a kinky world of police drama. A good mystery revolving around the psychological problems of the protagonist. Seems Lt Scanlon lost his sexual manhood when he lost his leg. As an amputee, he nevertheless makes good use of his experience in the department to ensure justice, even if not perfect procedures. New York's finest, it would seem, break numerous little laws in order to get their man. They sleep with hookers, hire them for their stag parties, and constantly lie to get witnesses to cough up information. Obviously, Caunitz is no armchair detective, but an author who has lived the life of his characters.

3.0 out of 5 stars gritty detective thriller Dec 31 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Gritty realism and a good detective story in Suspects. The detail of police procedures, investigative techniques, and picture of daily life in an NYPD detective squad are excellent. Contains fairly graphic sexual descriptions, however, that seem over the top, especially in the first half of the book. There is great characterization with the lead detective, who's an amputee, and his personal struggles are a nice complement to the well-delivered plot. Caunitz serves up some nice quips about life as a cop and some of the problems on "the Job" - such as detectives don't really like a good mystery because "they just give you gas."

5.0 out of 5 stars First Rate Gritty Police Thriller April 15 2002
By Joseph L Burke - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Author Caunitz is the complete police/detective thriller author and every other writer in this genre should be measured against him. His inside knowlege of police procedures, interactions of the characters, squad room banter, and all-around details of the world of law enforcement, contribute to a fascinating read. Nothing is spared here; the plot gives all the details of gory murder, sexual perversion, double lives led by some police, and political intrigue. Caunitz is as close as you can get to living life as a police investigator. Fascinating!
