    "Just get another one out"

    Slow and predictable. It seemed as though they needed to get another book from Patterson out there so they put this one out.

    "Great Patterson/Ledwidge Bennett book!"

    Love all the Michael Bennett series! One thing I love about these books is the narratives from the two perspectives and the use of two different narrators. This was full of suspense and unsuspecting turns. But I do say that I am slightly partial to Mastrogorgio than Cannavale but they both can connect with the Irish heart of the New Yorker Michael Bennett!

    "JP writes the best stories and series."

    As book 2 begins our hero, Mike Bennett, has another bizarre case assigned to him. As a recently widowed man with 10 children he has to constantly be "on". It begins with several unrelated high profile crimes being assigned to Mike Bennett.

    At the same time his motley crew of his children begin to come down with a terrible flu virus. As it begins with 2 or 3 kids initially it quickly begins to move thru all 10.

    As a great role model type father and detective he manages lead collegues and his family. He also get the bad guy in the end. A great read or listen!

    "Riviting"

    Wow, this had me on the edge of my seat, I loved the two narrators, The Teacher's voice gave me chills he was so good (I think that was Dallas), I really enjoy this series and following the Bennett family and Bobby's narration of Mike Bennett.

    "Didn't care for narrator"

    Did not care for the narrator. John Slattery was much better in Step on a Crack. Still listening to rate the story.
