Anyone familiar with Thomas Berger knows he has turned out some strange work. Suspects, centered around the gruesome slaying of a mother and daughter, is no exception. The main suspect in their murders has a feeble-minded half brother who is caught trying to steal a rubber duck from a convenience store, an incident that leads to the shooting death of a policeman and the arrest of an 11-year-old boy whose cousin was involved. Meanwhile, the half brother is hauled away by the cops from his sister-in-law's funeral because he is in possession of a handgun given to him by the female truck driver who hired him. The press is having a ball with the whole affair and the cops lose more evidence than the LAPD ever had. Suspects is a riotous, rollicking novel of insane proportions that leaves you believing it may have really happened.
