Jonnie Jacobs does a beautiful job in every respect--character, plot and impeccable writing. My only quibble is a personal one. Long complicated endings make me squirm. It's terrible being stuck to a chair for the duration--exactly the way Jonnie Jacobs planned it!

Awesome premise to this story. I was so excited to start this book knowing I was going to find out if Sam killed his wife at the same time he did. It's easy to relate to the characters and they can bond with your emotions, but probably not as much as they could have. The twists and turns keep on coming in this one with one that changes the last fifty pages of the book or so. It is the one problem that I had with this one. Despite this book being a tad predictable in a couple of spots, this one particular plot twist kept this book from being five stars. It is just too far 'out there' compared to the rest of the text. The author wrote well enough I would definitely be interested in another book by her. I did enjoy most of the book very much, but I didn't feel like the '...found in a car with blood under his fingernails and no memory of it...' was taken advantage of in this one. I still enjoyed the book and would recommend the author based on this one book of hers.

One juror held out causing a hang jury, which led to the freeing of Dr. Sam Russell from being convicted of strangling to death his pregnant wife Lisa. Her Bostonian parents are fully convinced he murdered their daughter while his Californian father is supportive of him. Sam accompanied by his child Molly leaves the East Coast to live near his dad. --- Seven years later, Sam awakens in his car with no idea what happened blood is under his fingernails. When he gets home he finds his second spouse Maureen missing. Déjà vu is all he can think of as this is exactly what occurred in New England. Monte Vista detectives Hannah Montgomery and Dallas Pryor lead the missing person¿s investigation knowing most likely a homicide committed by the husband happened. Monte has recently learned that her deceased husband Malcolm had an affair with her sister Claire while Dallas detests Sam from their high school days together. Both believe he killed his wife, but Hannah attempts to consider Sam's claims about a ransom call and a vehicle leaving the drop off locale. When her corpse is found, the vultures circle Sam. --- Very few writers if any can take an everyday person like Sam is and place him in a nightmarish realistic scenario caused by events outside his control as well as Jonnie Jacobs can. The story line grips readers because of Sam who is like one¿s neighbor, friend, or doctor so that the audience feels everything that occurs to him. Though a late twist has been used too often in suspense thrillers, THE ONLY SUSPECT is a fabulous tale because Sam is just that. --- Harriet Klausner
