Publisher's Summary

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, Patty, also followed in their father's footsteps, there's nothing Billy won't give up for the job, including his life. Left for dead alongside his tempestuous former partner and a hard-charging assistant district attorney out for blood, Billy miraculously survives. But he remembers nothing about the events leading up to the shootout.

Charged with double murder and desperate to clear his name, Billy retraces his steps to get to the bottom of what happened. When he discovers the existence of a little black book that everyone who's anyone in Chicago will stop at nothing to get their hands on, Billy suspects it contains the truth that will either set him free...or confirm his worst fears.

    "Very good book. Very engrossing and hard to put down."

    This is my first James Patterson book. Sometimes when I listen to audio books my mind tends to wonder off but it's not the case with this book. I highly recommend this book to any reader who likes a good detective mystery book.

    "Not so great"

    Found it a bit boring and hard going. Disappointed in another Patterson book. Becoming a bit of a habit for me!

    "Probably the best story I've seen so far"

    Loved this book from start to finish, literally had me guessing all the way through. I think this is probably the best story I have ever heard! Really good narrator too. thoroughly enjoyed!

    "Back to James Patterson's Best"

    This book is one of the best of James Patterson's books which I've read in a long while. The plot has so many twists and turns that I couldn't wait for the next chance i had to listen. Jumping between past and present took a little getting used to, but that didn't detract from the overall experience. The reader was good too.

    "Another winner"

    Yet again a definite winning story line, with a very unexpected twist at the end, can't wait to listen to the next one

    "disappointed"

    I chose this book because I usually enjoy the simplicity and fast pace of a James Patterson book but the amount of repetition in this book was just tedious. If he told us that he needed his sister to aid him in technology once he told us 20 times within a few chapters. That is just one example of the repetition in the book. You do not need to treat your readers like cretins Mr Pattterson. i gave up with 4 hours to go. Nothing wrong with the narrator. Disappointed as I usually zip through a James Patterson.
