After getting shot in the line of duty, New Jersey state police officer Doug Brock has been busy trying to rebuild his life. He's reunited with his fiancée and has even started to get some of his memories back. Doug's greatest hope is to continue his recovery with the help of an amnesia support group. But it's too soon to say whether the damage from his injury isn't permanent.

It isn't until fellow support-group member Sean Connor approaches him that Doug realizes the trouble is just beginning. Sean has discovered in his attic what can only be called a scrapbook of a murder victim--even though he has no recollection of the girl's identity, or his role in her life, whatsoever. Doug agrees to help Sean, and convinces the authorities to open what was believed to be a cold case. . .only to discover his own personal connection to the victim. Now Doug is suddenly questioning everything he thought he knew about Sean, the girl, and himself.

One of the most fascinating things I find about author David Rosenfelt is how he so easily slides from writing as the voice of defense attorney, Andy Carpenter, to writing as the voice of police detective, Doug Brock. To paraphrase Sesame Street, one of those things is definitely not like the other.

I enjoyed ‘Fade to Black’, the second Doug Brock novel and am on hold with KCLS for the third, ‘Black and Blue’. Doug has returned to work, has clearly recovered his sass and has almost recovered his reported propensity for his short temper, if not his memory of either or much else. Doug's sass is not nearly as good as Andy Carpenter's, but Doug tries hard. The liability of Doug's amnesia is also a bit of a help to him solving an unusual case. ‘Fade to Black’ has a lot of moving parts and even more misdirection, but ultimately, it's an enjoyable, quick read.
4 stars and I hope one day Andy and Doug go head to head in a case.

This was a good solid read. I really enjoy Rosenfelt’s Andy Carpenter series which always includes dogs but this was new for me. I need to read the first in this series to find out how Doug Brock lost his memory.

I enjoyed reading about a policeman's recovery from an accident that wipe out most of his memory. He is helped by his girlfriend and his partner. Together they solve a series of crime that is interwoven with another crime. Good change of pace

I have enjoyed Rosenfelt's Andy Carpenter series for the past several years. This is the 2nd in a new series starring cop Doug Brock. I found this a rather disappointing read. While the character has some of the wise alec attitude I admire in the Andy Carpenter series, I couldn't quite get to really like him. The story's premise has also been done many times before. I just hope the author hasn't given up on his Andy Carpenter series.
