Publisher's Summary

A crime lord has declared war on America. Only Detective Michael Bennett knows why.

Manuel Perrine doesn't fear anyone or anything. A charismatic and ruthless leader, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suit. Detective Michael Bennett once managed to put Perrine behind bars, the only official in the US ever to accomplish that. But now Perrine is out, and he has sworn to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him.

Detective Bennett, along with his 10 adopted children, their nanny, and his grandfather, are hidden safely on a rural California farm, with guards courtesy of the FBI's witness protection program. Perrine begins to embark on an escalating series of assassinations across the country, killings whose brazenness and audacity bring into question the possibility of safety and law in the U.S. The FBI has no choice but to ask Detective Bennett to risk it all in Perrine's war on America.

With explosive action and fierce villainy that rivals James Bond movies at their best, Gone is the next astounding novel by James Patterson.

    "predictable"

    sorry, I feel Patterson has become so cookie cutterish. but I found the narrators to be so monotone and sounded bored. I didn't find any excitement

    Any additional comments?

    As always, I love the MIchael Bennet series. The stories always keep me in suspense. I keep hoping that Michael and Mary Catherine will get together and add to the clan.

    "POOR NARRATION"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge and/or Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva ?

    YES, IF IT HAD BOBBY CANNAVALE AS THE NARRATOR. I LOVE JAMES PATTERSON AND HAVE READ ALL THE BOOKS OF THE "MICHAEL BENNETT" SERIES, BUT THE NARRATION IS VERY DISTRACTING.


    What was most disappointing about James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge ’s story?

    I'M SORRY. I WAS UNABLE TO FINISH THE BOOK


    Would you be willing to try another one of Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva ’s performances?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I MAY JUST HAVE TO GO BACK TO READING THE BOOK INSTEAD OF LISTENING IF I WANT TO KNOW WHAT HAPPENED.

    Any additional comments?

    I missed hearing Bobby Cannavale as the voice of Michael Bennett. I guess I was spoiled hearing his voice. The story was a bit slower but the ending was good.

    "FANTASTIC!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Gone to be better than the print version?

    James Patterson didn't disappoint!


    What other book might you compare Gone to and why?

    This entire series is GREAT!


    What about Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva ’s performance did you like?

    Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva's performances were FANTASTIC however I missed Bobby Cannavale. His voice is synonymous with Michael Bennett to me.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I wanted to listen to the entire thing in one sitting!

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "I love this series!"
    Would you listen to Gone again? Why?

    Probably not. I liked the book but the narrator made the characters kind of a bore.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone?

    I liked everything with the Mexican cartel... sadly we really face that kind of stuff now days.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I was not a fan of the performance. The narrator is kind of monotone and I really wish they would have had Bobby Cannavale. I LOVED his work.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No, I was surprised at times but not to the extreme.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE BRING BACK BOBBY CANNAVALE!!!

    What did you love best about Gone?

    I really like the characters.


    If you’ve listened to books by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge before, how does this one compare?

    Poorly, I was disappointed when the last book ended in a cliff hangar. I thought the story line was lame.


    What does Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Really good readers. Some of the best and indeed part of the reason I love this series of books and why I am so disappointed with the lame attempt at writing.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry, that such a good character was wasted on a poor story line.


    Any additional comments?

    Please try to do better. You have a great character with a wonderful family. You need to put more effort into the story. Particularly when you got out of the US, the story line was downright silly.

    I enjoy listening to my library of books here in the summer heat of central Florida. I find falling asleep to a book relaxing.

    "kept my interest"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    yes I would reccomend this for a summer listen,
    I enjoyed listening and it cost me only my membership dues. I almost droppped my membership/subscription to Audible but now am glad I accumulated credits to listen to Gone


    What did you like best about this story?

    I was enthralled by the pace and tempo, the backround music and character plotline.
    The story was out of current headlines and full of many events that seemed believeable. A good mystery. with action and tenderness combined.
    I found mention of facebook, and the modern tech very rewarding; placing michael bennett and clan in upto date circumstances.


    Which character – as performed by Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva – was your favorite?

    I can't pick a favorite character, I liked at least 5 of this bunch. I enjoyed the narrators and all nuances of their performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes I found myself carrying around my Android while I spent my day taking care of household chores
