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 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.
Retired physician.......proud father & grfather!!
Another interesting Bennett story. My
Favorite other than ACross.
More time spent on Mikes kids and MCatherine. A good easy read or listen
Yes, I like the story line.
He continues to amaze me - like to see this in a screen play.
Going to the next book.
Mary Katherine lost her sexy accent in this book. I liked how the book started off, but It seemed like the author got to a certain point in the book and realized that it was time to move it along and tell the rest of the story. So a lot of the subplot items tended to get less attention. This one was just "okay"
I really miss Bobby Cannavale, or even the first narrator. This one just doesn't have the right cadence or inflection. Something is off. It sounds like he's asking a question or leaving the sentence hanging as he reads so it's difficult to listen to. I keep thinking "is his sentence over or is he pausing?" I'm going to listen to the next book because I love this series and family, but for the next production I hope they change narrators. As usual, the "bad guy" narrator was great.
The story line was cliche, the performance was so-so, and the plot was predictable! Although I am a fan of Patterson's, I found this book to be lacking in the intricate, engaging plot that caused me to really care about the characters! Certainly not one his best
I was hoping for more action in the second book and I was not disappointed. The nastiest villain ever. Also, just when you think the story is over it kicks back into full throttle action.
