Publisher's Summary

The mayor of New York has a daughter who's missing and in danger. Detective Michael Bennett has a son who's in prison. The two strike a deal.

Bennett and the mayor have always had a tense relationship, but now the mayor sees in Bennett a discreet investigator with family worries of his own. Just one father helping another.

The detective leaps into the case and sources lead him to a homicide in the Bronx. The victim has ties to a sophisticated hacking operation - and also to the mayor's missing daughter, Natalie, a 21-year-old computer prodigy. The murder is part of a serial killing spree, one with national security implications. And suddenly Bennett is at the center of a dangerous triangle anchored by NYPD, FBI, and a transnational criminal organization. 

Michael Bennett has always been an honorable man, but sometimes - when the lives of innocents are at stake - honor has to take a back seat. Survival comes first.

Dedicated detective who never forgets his family

I have read all Michael Bennett books. Always excited when Patterson announces a new book. The Michael Bennett and Women’s Murder Club series; I’ll never miss the downloads. As usual, there is mystery, action, family love and devotion. What more can I ask for in a book.

Terrible narrator, boring story

Don’t waste your time and money on this one. I can’t believe James Patterson would put his name on this.

Very disappointing!

I was very disappointed by this book. I'm sorry I purchased it. The story line was weak and very predictable. It was just a shoot them up sappy story with no real intrigue at all. I didn't even care about finishing it and would not have except I actually paid for this disappointing book!
