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 fianc,? 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.

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.… (mais)

A nice, tight thriller. Doug is onto something big, but he doesn't know how big. A terrorist is back in the country but no one knows. The only leads are buried deep in his shooting induced amnesia. Noir style writing. ( )

A Quick Read with Some Suspense…but a Bit Trite

Blackout is the story of New Jersey state police officer Doug Brock, who in the course of an unauthorized investigation into notorious criminal Nicholas Bennett, is shot, falls from a balcony hitting his head, and goes into a coma. When he awakens, he has amnesia, and so, he must relearn whatever made him such an irresistible target…while hopefully, saving the day before getting shot again.

Gun battles. Dangerous knowledge about notorious criminals. And yes, even some romance. Blackout has a lot going on, so you won’t be reading long without encountering another challenge to be met and conquered. And consequently, it seemed that the pages flew by; a couple of nights, and this one was back to the library. Blackout also has a nice touch of humor, with a series of ‘lost my memory’ quips: ‘This is the best sandwich I’ve ever had. Of course, I don’t remember having any sandwiches before yesterday.’ If there was any downfall in the humor, it was that Rosenfelt might have stuck with this basic formula a bit too long. It was somewhat stale by the end…at least as long as you don’t get amnesia half-way through the book and get to enjoy it anew.

But my more general concern about the story was that, despite the continuous flow of events and characters, it felt somewhat trite. The loose cannon detective with a death wish. The trusty partner, faithful to a fault. The jilted lover that our hero only wants after she is gone. And even the twists – one was foreshadowed, one was predictable, and a third seemed like the end of about 20% of every TV police show. I guess in bringing together so much well-worn territory, perhaps Rosenfelt created something unique. But the tension was never fully there for me, because in its parts, it seemed to move to an inevitable conclusion.

Overall, the predictability of the story was mostly overcome by the pace, making Blackout worth a couple of your reading nights. Just don’t expect to be laughing all the way through. ( )

A good thriller, with a NJ setting, involving a cop getting shot and subsequently getting amnesia. He has to find out what he was working on, while on suspension and what led up to getting shot. ( )

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. ( )
