Blackout kept my interest. The plot is tight, the characters are ones you can care about, and the chapters are short, just how I like them to be. ( )

A suspended cop falls from a balcony, causing temporary amnesia. With the help of his partner and former girlfriend, he struggles to re-trace the steps of his covert investigation into the dirty dealings of an influential businessman, hopefully in time to avert a disaster in Manhattan.

A competent thriller with humor and camaraderie and the challenge of a cop who has lost the last 10 years of memories, just as his investigation pays off. Characterization extends only to the good guys but Rosenfelt keeps the action moving. ( )

Entertaining police procedural, reminiscent of the author's Andy Carpenter series but slightly more serious. His books are so readable before you know it you're done. Quick, fast paced & enjoyable read. ( )

First words
Nate Alvarez wanted to screen the call.
I’m already realizing that life is all about memories; it’s the way we keep score.  It doesn’t matter if the tree makes a sound when it falls in the forest; it only matters if anyone remembers it.

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"New Jersey state police officer Doug Brock has been after infamous criminal Nicholas Bennett for years. When Bennett kills someone close to Doug, however, Doug's investigation--and his life--start spiraling out of control. He's placed on indefinite suspension from the police force and breaks things off with his fiance but he can't let the case go, and he continues an off-the-books investigation on his own. When Doug's former partner on the force, Nate Alvarez, receives a call from Doug saying he's discovered something big, something terrifying, something they need to call in the FBI to handle, Nate is furious that Doug has still been working the case. But when the call ends abruptly, and shortly afterward Doug is found in a hotel room, shot and in critical condition, Nate's anger turns to fear. When Doug finally awakens from his coma, however, he has no memory of the case, or even the last several years of his life. But the pull of what he might have discovered is too strong, and he finds himself immersed in a desperate search for truth once again, regardless of the danger. Once again Rosenfelt has written a propulsive and compelling thriller that will rivet readers from the first page to the last"--… (more)
