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.

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."

HASH(0xb305e660) 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!

HASH(0xb3200ae0) out of 5 stars Caunitz stays true to form Dec 26 2014
By G. Henson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Caunitz stays true to his unique form in Suspects. The cops Caunitz writes about are not straight arrows, but their compass does point true north. They bend the rules to the point of breaking, but they try to keep the victims in mind. Definitely not politically correct, and every one of them seems to be severely flawed, but they seem like interesting people, which makes for interesting reading. Suspects starts with the murder of a store owner and a cop. Was it a robbery or a hit? If it was a hit, which was the target? Not always a pleasurable read due to the degree of grit and grime in these cops' lives, but always a good one. Be prepared for a fair amount of language and sex, but for those who don't have a problem with such things, a very good, if sometimes dated (no cellphones, for one), read.
HASH(0xb312a27c) out of 5 stars Good reading for those who like police drama March 16 2016
By common man - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good reading for those who like police drama. Good characters. Fairly well developed. Story does twist and turn and keeps your attention. Overall I consider this a good read. Both Suspects and One Police Plaza seem very real. Only someone who has served as a policeman would have this type of inside knowledge of the workings of a police department. This insight makes for a good story.

By Joe Hohmann - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I found this book by just roaming the library shelves and pulling random books to look at. Lucky me...this one was very, very good. The best news is that there are 6 other books of his waiting to be read. I'm hoping this main character appears in other books...he was very real to me.
