The story follows a cop named Doug who had been suspended from the force due to the fact that he was not able to let go and move on from a crime that had been previously committed where the perpetrator hadn't been arrested. Even though he's suspended, Doug continues to do some investigative work on his own. One night, he calls his former partner and urgently tells him "I've got him this time", however the call is cut off because Doug has been shot before finishing his sentence.
After waking up in the hospital, Doug has lost all memories from the last 10 years. The story follows him and his partner Nate as they attempt to uncover what it was that Doug had uncovered.
The story was quick, which was nice. The "chapters" were short, but not clearly labeled, which made it difficult to know how long I had left in a chapter while reading on the kindle. That might be a nuance I personally don't like - maybe it doesn't bother anyone else!
I had a few problems with the book. First, the plot felt pretty thin to me, and it also didn't feel super unique. There wasn't a ton happening, so it felt like a lot of the book was dragged out, and I found myself getting bored at some points. I'm glad this was a book I chose to alternate between kindle and audiobook, because I'm honestly not sure if I wouldn't have gotten though it without also being able to listen to it on my commute to and from work. I also didn't particularly love any of the characters. It's not that I disliked them per say, but I didn't like them either. I wasn't necessarily rooting for them in the end. I felt totally indifferent to how the book was going to end, which isn't what I want out of a book marketed as a thriller. Lastly, I felt like some of the dialogue and character interaction felt really unnatural to me, which took me out of the story.
I alternated between two and three stars, but given how hard it was for me to want to keep reading and the fact that I didn't care how it ended, I'm going to land on two stars.
