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.

I enjoy listening to my library of books here in the summer heat of central Florida. I find falling asleep to a book relaxing.
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
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.
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.
Yes I found myself carrying around my Android while I spent my day taking care of household chores
James Patterson didn't disappoint!
This entire series is GREAT!
Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva's performances were FANTASTIC however I missed Bobby Cannavale. His voice is synonymous with Michael Bennett to me.
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 loved this book and didn't want it to end. It was just too short.
I enjoyed the conclusion of the story followed on from I Michael Bennett, a bit blood thirty, kept me riveted go Mary Catherine she's one strong woman. Narration was good.
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.
