#1 New York Times bestseller

USA Today bestseller

Three bodies in a beautiful and luxurious 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, Billy plays it by the book. Alongside Detective Kate Fenton, Billy’s tempestuous, adrenaline-junkie partner, there is nothing he wouldn’t sacrifice for his job. Enter Amy Lentini, a hard-charging assistant state’s attorney hell-bent on making a name for herself—who suspects Billy isn’t the cop he claims to be. They’re about to be linked by more than their careers.

One missing black book.

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 what’s missing: the madam’s black book. Now shock waves are rippling through the city’s elite, and everyone’s desperate to find it.

Chicago has never been more dangerous.

As everyone who is anyone in Chicago scrambles to get their hands on the elusive black book, no one’s motives can be trusted.

An ingenious, inventive thriller about power, corruption, and the power of secrets to scandalize a city and possibly destroy a family, The Black Book is James Patterson at his page-turning best.

Review Quotes

“Narrator Edoardo Ballerini takes listeners through a twisty thriller set in Chicago and steeped in city and police politics… Ballerini has a subtle take on the Chicago accents yet shines with the banter between cops—getting the pace and sarcasm just right. His greatest contribution is keeping the emotional pitch high. It propels listeners through the changes in time sequence and keeps the tension ratcheted up. Patterson and Ballerini make a great pair for good listening.”


“The plot twists will give you whiplash.”

Washington Post

“Peerless networker Patterson…latches on to a co-author who ups his game in several welcome ways…The mystery is authentic, the lead-up genuinely suspenseful, and the leading characters and situations more memorable than Patterson’s managed in quite a while. Co-author Ellis is definitely a keeper.”
