Publisher's Summary

How can you prove your innocence when you can't remember the crime?

Being a cop runs in Billy Harney's family. The son of Chicago's chief of detectives whose twin sister, Patty, also followed in their father's footsteps, there's nothing Billy won't give up for the job, including his life. Left for dead alongside his tempestuous former partner and a hard-charging assistant district attorney out for blood, Billy miraculously survives. But he remembers nothing about the events leading up to the shootout.

Charged with double murder and desperate to clear his name, Billy retraces his steps to get to the bottom of what happened. When he discovers the existence of a little black book that everyone who's anyone in Chicago will stop at nothing to get their hands on, Billy suspects it contains the truth that will either set him free...or confirm his worst fears.

Back to the best of James Patterson

After enjoying the majority of the Alex Cross books and the Jack Reacher series I had begun to predict the storylines of the recent books I had listened to HOWEVER this book, the narrator, the storyline has given me the fantastic feeling of 'what happens next!' Gripped til the end. Hope others enjoy it as much as I did.

FANTASTIC!!

This book was fantastic, it's amazingly narrated the story if always making you guess all the way until the very last word. if you like thriller's then this is the book for you! just brilliant!

it's also been brought by CBS as a TV series... I hope they don't ruin it!

Back to James Patterson's Best

This book is one of the best of James Patterson's books which I've read in a long while. The plot has so many twists and turns that I couldn't wait for the next chance i had to listen. Jumping between past and present took a little getting used to, but that didn't detract from the overall experience. The reader was good too.

The black book

What has happened to the brilliant James Patterson? This book was so tedious and drawn out that I returned it!

Very good book. Very engrossing and hard to put down.

This is my first James Patterson book. Sometimes when I listen to audio books my mind tends to wonder off but it's not the case with this book. I highly recommend this book to any reader who likes a good detective mystery book.

A waste of time

Really inadequate for this author who normally I've enjoyed over the years. Very disappointed. Save yourself
