HE’S IN THE DARK. . .
New Jersey State Police officer Doug Brock has been after criminal Nicholas Bennett for years. When Bennett kills someone close to Doug, however, the whole investigation spirals out of control—as does Doug’s own life. He’s put on indefinite suspension from the force, but Doug still can’t let the case go. . .and he ends up sacrificing everything, including his fiancée, to continue working on it off the books. Soon he discovers something big—important enough to involve the FBI—and calls his former partner on the force for help. . .

WHILE A KILLER IS HIDING IN PLAIN SIGHT.
Doug’s phone call ends abruptly with a bang—literally. He’s eventually found in a hotel room, shot and in critical condition. After coming out of his coma, Doug has no memory of the case, or even the last several years of his life. But the pull of what he once discovered is too strong to resist, and he finds himself immersed in a desperate search for truth once again. . .no matter what mortal danger lies in store.

EXCERPT

Praise for Blackout

“A gripping plot careens around myriad twists and turns, avoiding clichés but keeping the surprises coming…Despite the infusion of ramped-up action, Heart of a Killer remains a believable, often chilling story with appealing, realistic characters. Rosenfelt also balances this with his trademark dry humor.” —Kansas City Star

“As usual, there is plenty of irony, humor, suspense, and affection here…Rosenfelt is, indeed, one of a kind; you will burn through this novel—like all his others—non-stop and totally rapt. It's an airtight cinch.” —Examiner.com on Airtight

“Rosenfelt has crafted another terrific thriller that will keep the reader up late at night.” —Associated Press on Heart of a Killer

“The tension is palpable, and the pages fly by in this riveting stand-alone thriller…The voice here is every bit as engaging as in the Carpenter novels, with enough humor to lighten the story without diminishing the suspense. And the ending is a real shocker.” —Booklist (starred review) on Airtight
