Forced into hiding from a mass murderer seeking vengeance, Detective Michael Bennett must decide whether to stay and protect his family, or hunt down the man who is hunting them.
When Bennett arrested Manuel Perrine, he thought he had brought an end to the drug cartel boss’s reign of terror and would get justice for the murder of his best friend. But then, during the trial, Perrine escaped. In a bloody shoot-out, Bennett killed Perrine’s wife. Now he wants nothing more than to make Bennett suffer, to make him pay. The whole family are moved to a safe-house in California. But as Perrine’s attacks on US soil become more vicious and more daring, it’s clear there is a war coming. No one, anywhere, is safe.

James Patterson should be embarrassed to put his name to this book. I am an avid reader of his novels so consider myself a fair critic of his work. this would have to be the worst book I have ever had the misfortune to listen to. The family are too perfect and without giving anything away the storyline is so unbelievable I couldnt believe we were expected to stomach the things an experienced LAPD detective let his family do whilst in witness protection.
I bought the book to read- couldnt get into it so stupidly bought the audiobook- worse mistake. Luckily it was heavily reduced - I now know why. Save your money and ask someone else what happens. Having said that I probably will give the next book a go to see if he is still insulting our intelligence. Listen at your own peril.

A good storyline that brings you right up to date (it has been a while since listening to the last book) and then gets straight into the plot that threatens the Bennett family. There are some nice twists and turns in the story, some that are predictable, some that make you think to understand what and why but a nicely flowing story that has a beginning, middle and end. I have listened to some books lately where I have wondered if I have fallen asleep at times because the story has jumped hither and thither from beginning to end to middle and back to the start again all within the first two chapters. I really liked the ending of this book because everything fell back into line with and explosive finish and subtle sub stories right to the end.
These two readers brought the characters to life. I sometimes mix my books with a couple of chapters read and then go back to listening and I can still hear their voices while I am reading because the tones of their voices adds that little extra to the characters that are built into the book by the author.
Definitely a book that you want to carry on listening to the end once you start it.
Can't wait to get stuck into the next one. It's already in my library.
Love all the Michael Bennett story's. Defiantly recommend it to anybody and would listen to it again.
