"Suspicion is the kind of book you want to read when you have plenty of free time, because once you start reading, you won't be able to put it down. (However, I would not recommend this book for children under 18, due to graphic sexual situations). I was so caught up in this book that I read the whole thing in one day. I found myself going back and forth between believing he was guilty and believing he was innocent until the very last page. It's a book you won't be able to forget." Readers Review

Originally published under the title "GOTH," the novel received the following reviews:
"Goth is a wonderful read that houses some twists and turns bringing a chill to this reader. There were moments by the bus stop, or during Vanessa’s little encounters, that sent shudders through me. I love the atmosphere when she saw the mist, and heard the wailing foghorns of the harbor. This book keeps the reader on their toes. Karen Lewis carries the reader into an ominous story that I found powerful, sinister, and at times a bit scary. The addition of secondary characters blends well making this an eerie story that at times sends shivers down the spine." Coffee Time Romance

"If you like to spend a few hours reading a creepy mystery, Goth is your book. It moves at a good pace and Lewis does a first rate job of laying and adding atmospheric effects like rain, fog and a run-down part of town full of color characters to send a chill down your spine. The red herrings are also carefully disguised. Figuring out the mystery wasn't simple and made for a good journey. Whipped Cream 

"Once again, Karen Lewis has created a twisted thriller you can really sink your teeth into. GOTH is an intriguing read from start to finish."
"Stick around and read until the end, you won’t believe the conclusion to GOTH." Dark Angel
