'A total page-turner that will keep you guessing from start to terrifying finish' Karin Slaughter
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, Patti, also followed in their father's footsteps, Billy would give up everything for the job - including his life.
After a brutal shooting, Billy is left for dead alongside his tempestuous former partner and an ambitious assistant district attorney. But somehow Billy survives - and is charged with double murder.
Billy remembers nothing about the shooting. Retracing his steps to find proof of his innocence, he discovers the existence of a little black book that he suspects contains the truth that will either set him free, or confirm his worst fears...
'The Black Book has more twists than a Formula One race, and the pace is just as fast. Deeply rooted characters, a touch of humour, and a climax nobody can see coming - it's vintage Patterson.' Brad Taylor, author of the Pike Logan series
'The plot twists will give you whiplash' Washington Post
'Brilliantly twisty . . . Many readers will agree with Patterson that this is the "best book [he's] written in 25 years".' Publisher's Weekly
'The mystery is authentic, the lead-up genuinely suspenseful' Kirkus
