Escape

A Black Book Thriller




The third instalment in the highly praised 'Black Book' series

Five unconnected teenage girls have been kidnapped, and Chicago PD detective Billy Harney is leading the investigation to find them.

Harney and his partner Carla follow a lead to a remote house, but it's a deadly trap. A huge explosion rips through the building killing Carla and allowing the kidnapper to escape.

The loss of his partner only serves to strengthen Harney's resolve to find her killer, and protect the teenage girls he targets.

PRAISE FOR THE BLACK BOOK

'It's almost as thrilling to see a writer like James Patterson at the top of his game as it is to read The Black Book - a total page-turner that will keep you guessing from start to terrifying finish.' KARIN SLAUGHTER

'The Black Book has more twists than a Formula One race, and the pace is just as fast. Deeply rooted characters, a touch of humour, and a climax nobody can see coming - it's vintage Patterson.' BRAD TAYLOR, author of the Pike Logan series
