Publisher's Summary

Police officers shot

Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett's lifelong friend, Hughie McDonough, dead. From jail, the prisoner vows to rain epic violence down upon New York City - and to get revenge on Michael Bennett.

Judges murdered

To escape the chaos, Bennett takes his 10 kids and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, on a much-needed vacation to his family's cabin near Newburgh, New York. But instead of the calm and happy town he remembers from growing up, they step into a nightmare worse than they could have ever imagined. Newburgh is an inferno of warring gangs, and there's little the police - or Bennett - can do to keep the children safe.

Target: Michael Bennett

As violence overwhelms the state, Bennett is torn between protecting his hometown and saving New York City. A partner in his investigations, federal prosecutor Tara McLellan brings him new weapons for the battle - and an attraction that endangers his relationship with Mary Catherine.

A no-holds-barred, pedal-to-the-floor, action-packed novel, Michael Bennett is James Patterson at his most personal and most thrilling best.

    "Decent story in need of an ending!!!!"
    What disappointed you about I, Michael Bennett?

    The story did not have an ending. It felt like they just stopped in the middle and left you hanging, almost like they stopped to meet a publishing deadline.

    I'm a big fan of this series but was very disappointed by this!


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Good story, great buildout of the bad guy.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    This performer is always good.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from I, Michael Bennett?

    About half of the family "filler" needed to be edited out. That got boring.


    Any additional comments?

    Michael's relationship with his DEA friend wasn't consistent. In the beginning he talks about how they has lost touch then later he says he misses him everyday. Inconsistent.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, especially if you are into the Michael Bennett series. The book is action packed and full of Michael Bennett's sense of humor and no nonsense approach to law breakers. If the listener is just picking up a book without keeping the series in mind, I think they will be disappointed.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of I, Michael Bennett?

    The ending of the book definitely leaves the reader hanging and since it's the ending, it is very memorable. Not sure how much I liked this as I felt not enough solution to the conflict was made before ending the book.


    What does Bobby Cannavale and Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I just love audiobooks, and when narrators can change their voices enough that you can automatically tell who is talking, then I'm hooked and going to listen to that narrator again. These narrators are very good about setting the stage with their tone, inflection and variety.


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

    The loss of friends and innocence in this book were moving. When Michael's long time friend is killed and the book takes the reader/listener to the wake, the scene is made real.


    Any additional comments?

    Generally, I really like this series, but I was let down with the ending this time.
