Summary

HE'S IN THE DARK. . .
New Jersey State Police officer Doug Brock has been after criminal Nicholas Bennett for years. When Bennett kills someone close to Doug, however, the whole investigation spirals out of control--as does Doug's own life. He's put on indefinite suspension from the force, but Doug still can't let the case go. . .and he ends up sacrificing everything, including his fiancée, to continue working on it off the books. Soon he discovers something big--important enough to involve the FBI--and calls his former partner on the force for help. . .

WHILE A KILLER IS HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT.
Doug's phone call ends abruptly with a bang--literally. He's eventually found in a hotel room, shot and in critical condition. After coming out of his coma, Doug has no memory of the case, or even the last several years of his life. But the pull of what he once discovered is too strong to resist, and he finds himself immersed in a desperate search for truth once again. . .no matter what mortal danger lies in store.

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.
