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.

    Any additional comments?

    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"

    "Entertaining! Patterson did it again."

    Detective Michael Bennet's stories are always entertaining for me. I recommend it.
    I enjoyed reading it. Patterson did it again.

    "Like the story, missed the previous narrator"

    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.

    "Disappointing!!"

    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

    "A good recovery"

    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.

    "Narration has a lot to be desired!"
    What would have made Gone better?

    I have always been a fan of the Bennett series but I couldn't get through a fourth of this book due to the narration! The story seems like it might be interesting. I love how it opened but then it seems out there.


    What could James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Different narriation


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

    NO


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

    Story
    "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!!!

    "Disappointing"
    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.

    "Should have been part of Book 5"

    Not great! This book is basically completing the disappointing book 5. Could have been part of that publication. No big surprises. Bet you can guess what happens like I did as the story went along. I miss Bobby Carnavale as narrator.

    Story
    "Michael Bennett and the Adventures of his Family"
    What made the experience of listening to Gone the most enjoyable?

    I enjoy the adventures of Michael Bennett and his large family. Nice to get the family out of Manhattan once in a while.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Shamus is the best. Other than his character nothing was liked the best. There is gratuitious violence, some stereotypical behaviors from Latino villians, no passion between Michael and Mary Catherine, the kids are not developed well or growing up--waiting for something that focuses on the children


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

    They were good. I could not tell when the narrators changed. Are they the narrators due to the need of someone who could speak with a variety of dialects or accents(male, female, kids voices; Spanish, Irish, Western/Ranch drawl, young etc.)What happened to Bobby Cannavale? Toward the end it was difficult to distinguish between Mary Catherine and Shamus' Irish accents.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Moved me? Irritated me is more like it. Get rid of the sound effects. Please leave something to the imagination of the listener. This is not radio.


    Any additional comments?

    This story leaves the listener wanting...there were so many storylines that need tied up...some characters were just "there" and we don't hear anything else about them and the story is over. The bull who was transported to sire...
