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.

If you like James Patterson and you like the Michael Bennett character then you will like this book. I personally don't care for the details of the killings and the sound effects, but the story line is a good Patterson tale.
Good story - but the different male voices and the background noise is distracting.
MC and the kids!!
All the background noise was too distracting - just read the story.
Did not read the books.
Michael Bennett - because he's a wealth of all kinds of emotions.
I have no choice if I want to finish the series, but I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY wish they wouldn't change narrators mid-stream like that. Just when you have connected with a character, largely due to the narrator, he's gone. Also, I like using two narrators or more, when one is a woman.
I'm not creative enough for that, sorry.
Yes, please..... the same narrator should be used if the book is a series. If it were not for the fact that I was already 5 books into this, I would not have given a new narrator a chance. This Danny whoever is okay, but no where near as great as Bobby Cannavale who absolutely fit the character of Michael Bennett so much better.
I read this book awhile ago. I enjoyed it immensely then. Earlier this afternoon I was looking for something to fill the void the end of another great read (Abducted by T. R. Ragan) left without purchasing additional credits. I randomly selected Gone thinking an hour of listening would suffice. 7 plus hours later and I'm as rivoted as I was the first time!
Please get Bobby Cannavalle back!!! This Danny guy is awful!!! Made not want to listen anymore!!!!
Narration was awful. Accents were not realistic. Inflection was poor.
