Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "In his latest stand-alone thriller, Rosenfelt introduces New Jersey state police officer Doug Brock, who is suffering retrograde amnesia and can't remember the last 10 years. That means he can't remember who shot him or how close he was to foiling an imminent terrorist plot. With the help of his best friend and ex-girlfriend, Brock retraces the steps of his most recent investigation. Short chapters and shifting points of view keep the beat the clock pace moving. Brock is a solid detective who doesn't let his ignorance of iPhones or his own address slow him down. A good bet for fans of both fast-paced procedurals and intelligence-agency intrigue.--Keefe, Karen Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "This gripping standalone from Rosenfelt (Without Warning) tells a crackerjack story replete with wry observations and witty, and totally convincing, dialogue. While hot on the trail of crime boss Nicholas Bennett, New Jersey state police officer Doug Brock somehow ended up shot and on the wrong side of a balcony-several feet below it, with serious head trauma. When he comes out of his coma, Doug recalls nothing from the last 10 years: not even his ex-fiancée, fellow cop Jessie Allen, or why, just before his shooting, he called his partner, Nate Alvarez, to say, "This time I got him." As Doug retraces his steps before the call (aided by a photo on his phone and its amazing GPS technology, which is new to him), it becomes clear that he was dangerously close to uncovering not just criminal activity but an imminent terrorist plot. Time is running out, but Doug can't rely on any "ta da!" recollections. The pressure to halt a catastrophic event while he struggles to recreate his former life makes this an irresistible read.
