After reading TAKEN last year, I discovered I really like Robert Crais' books. I'm a little late to the fan party, I know--the man has written a good bookshelf full of mysteries.
So I picked up his recent release, SUSPECT. The book opens with a chapter written from a military K-9 dog's perspective; I was choked up by page ten... As a writer, it left me in awe. Don't we all wish we could write that powerful of a story?
How about you, readers and writers? Which author do you admire?
