In The Black Book By James Patterson … Three bodies in a beautiful bedroom … Billy Harney was born to be a cop.

The son of Chicago’s chief of detectives whose twin sister is also on the force, Bill plays it by the book.  Alongside Detective Kate Fenton, Bill’s adrenaline-junkie partner, there’s nothing he wouldn’t sacrifice for his job.  Amy Lentini, a hard-charging assistant state’s attorney insisting on making a name for herself, suspects Billy isn’t the cop he claims to be … they’re about to be linked by more than their careers.

A horrifying murder leads investigators to an unexpected address – an exclusive brothel that caters to Chicago’s most powerful citizens.  There is plenty of incriminating evidence on the scene, but what matters most is the black book.  Shock waves are rippling through the city’s elite, and everyone’s desperate to find it.

Chicago has never been so dangerous.  As everyone who’s anyone in Chicago scrambles to get their hands on the elusive black book, no one can be trusted.  An ingenious thriller about power, corruption, and the power of the secrets to scandalize the city and possibly destroy a family.  The best book he’s written in years!
