'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...
"It's almost as thrilling to see a writer like James Patterson at the top of his game as it is to read The Black Book – a total page-turner that will keep you guessing from start to terrifying finish."
"Brilliantly twisty ... Many readers will agree with Patterson that this is the "best book [he's] written in 25 years"."
"The mystery is authentic, the lead-up genuinely suspenseful"
"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."
