Summary

In the thrilling sequel to Blackout, New Jersey police officer Doug Brock is rebuilding his life after being shot in the line of duty. Reunited with his fiancé, he's getting some of his memories back and hopes to continue with his amnesia support group. Then a member approaches him after a meeting. Sean found a scrapbook of a murder victim in his attic, and has no recollection of the girl or why he has it. Doug convinces his captain to open the cold case, to which he had a personal connection.



Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This is the second effort in a new series by Rosenfelt, who is best known for his 16 novels featuring the aggressively ordinary yet smarty-pants lawyer Andy Carpenter. The series star here is New Jersey cop Doug Brock, whose wounding in the series debut, Blackout (2016), has left him partially amnesic. He doesn't remember the shooting or the case he was working on, so when a stranger asks his help untangling a cold case, he has to be told it's the same case that nearly got him killed. Rosenfelt creates a deliciously atmospheric world of suspense and mystery, as cloudy incidents pile up. Turns out the stranger who approached Brock doesn't exist. Hospital records document the care given a man who was never admitted. And the homeless man murdered in an alley why is he the key? To supply answers, Rosenfelt segues into a conventional cop-shop procedural, with Brock's sarcastic partner and his devoted girlfriend playing their expected roles. The unraveling is not as much fun as the mystery, but the the tingly, sinister mood gives readers plenty to enjoy.--Crinklaw, Don Copyright 2018 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Rosenfelt's solid sequel to 2016's Blackout, New Jersey state police officer Doug Brock encounters a man named Sean Conner at an amnesia support group. Conner persuades Brock to reinvestigate a three-year-old case that Brock himself helped solve, but about which he has no recollection, due to memory loss stemming from an on-the-job injury. The subsequent discovery of Conner's severed head in a park raises the stakes. Brock discovers that the earlier case connects to a conspiracy of organized crime infighting and terrorism that seems tied to drug thefts at a local hospital. Wisecracking Brock is a strong lead in the vein of Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter, while his cynical partner, Nate Alvarez, heads up a lively cast of secondary characters that includes a dog named Bobo. Unfortunately, Brock's girlfriend, Jessie Allen, a fellow cop who specializes in computer crimes, is relegated to a more one-dimensional supporting role. Filled with betrayals, twists, and intuitive leaps, this sometimes far-fetched tale will keep readers turning pages. Agent: Robin Rue, Writers House. (Mar.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
