"Rosenfelt knocks it out of the park with this fiendishly twisty serial killer thriller." - Publishers Weekly, starred review
The next exciting installment in bestselling David Rosenfelt's Doug Brock series.
Doug Brock hasn't had it easy since his getting shot in the line of duty as a New Jersey state police officer. Between the amnesia and having to solve two murder cases, it hasn't been the most restful recovery. He’s slowly earning back the trust of his girlfriend Jessie, since he doesn’t remember their breakup, and has focused on new crimes with his partner, Nate.
But now an old case of Doug’s has resurfaced, and it’s up to Doug to retrace his steps – steps he can’t remember – to solve the case. Eighteen months ago, Walter Brookings was shot through the heart. With no clear motive and no similar murders, the investigation stalled and became a cold case.
When another man is murdered in the same fashion and the ballistics come back as a match, Doug begins to reinvestigate, and starts to question his own actions from the previous investigation.
Finally, what Doug uncovers may be more dangerous than any case he’s faced yet.
In Edgar finalist Rosenfelt's outstanding third Doug Brock novel (after 2018's Fade to Black), Brock, a New Jersey State Police homicide lieutenant who lost some of his memories after being shot in the head several years earlier, hopes this handicap won't compromise a high-pressure investigation. Someone shot attorney Alex Randowsky through the heart as Randowsky was leaving a tennis court. The m.o. is identical to the murder of affluent businessman Walter Brookings, who was killed shortly before Brock's brain injury; Brock has no independent memories of his role in investigating that case. But as he reviews the case files, he's haunted by the possibility that gun collector Danny Phelan, a suspect he dismissed in Brookings's death, and who was in prison between the two killings, is actually responsible for both deaths. The investigation takes a personal turn when the killer sends Brock a taunting note, stating that he's already taken two lives, with 98 more to go. Dead ends and red herrings abound as the action builds to a jaw-dropping reveal. Rosenfelt knocks it out of the park with this fiendishly twisty serial killer thriller.
