Suspect Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Suspect

A psychologist recently diagnosed with Parkinson's disease becomes a murder suspect when one of his former patients is killed. Joe O'Loughlin suspects that a current patient, a young man who is mostly functional but has frightening moments of violent anger, may be involved. While he tries to cope with his diagnosis and how it may affect his family, O'Loughlin is also compelled to find the killer and clear his name. When another person connected to Joe is murdered and he starts lying to his wife and the police, O'Loughlin's innocence becomes even more questionable.
