FIVE VICTIMS. ONE KILLER.
When five teenage girls are abducted, Chicago PD Detective Billy Harney leads the investigation to find them.
Harney and his partner, Carla, follow a lead to a remote house, only to find themselves caught in a deadly trap. A huge explosion rips through the building, killing Carla and allowing the kidnapper to escape.
With the loss of his partner fuelling him, Harney strengthens his resolve to find her killer - and to make sure the body count ends there.
PRAISE FOR THE BLACK BOOK SERIES
'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.' KARIN SLAUGHTER
'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.' BRAD TAYLOR, author of the Pike Logan series
'The plot twists will give you whiplash' WASHINGTON POST
'Brilliantly twisty . . . Many readers will agree with Patterson that this is the "best book [he's] written in 25 years".' PUBLISHER'S WEEKLY
