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.
Story was great, but the narrator showed no emotion or creativity in reading. What a shame that this could ruin the book, but it did.
I enjoyed the conclusion of the story followed on from I Michael Bennett, a bit blood thirty, kept me riveted go Mary Catherine she's one strong woman. Narration was good.
i didnt see Perine going down like that. very good book.. wonder whats going to happen next
If you like James Patterson and you like the Michael Bennett character then you will like this book. I personally don't care for the details of the killings and the sound effects, but the story line is a good Patterson tale.
I love all the Mike Bennett books but there's nothing like this one and the follow up. Must listen !
What did you love best about Gone?
Good story - but the different male voices and the background noise is distracting.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Gone?
MC and the kids!!
Would you be willing to try another one of Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva ’s performances?
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
All the background noise was too distracting - just read the story.
It was a good book. Enjoyed the movie better. It took a while to get through it.
Would you consider the audio edition of Gone to be better than the print version?
Did not read the books.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Michael Bennett - because he's a wealth of all kinds of emotions.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva ?
I have no choice if I want to finish the series, but I REALLY, REALLY, REALLY wish they wouldn't change narrators mid-stream like that. Just when you have connected with a character, largely due to the narrator, he's gone. Also, I like using two narrators or more, when one is a woman.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
I'm not creative enough for that, sorry.
Any additional comments?
Yes, please..... the same narrator should be used if the book is a series. If it were not for the fact that I was already 5 books into this, I would not have given a new narrator a chance. This Danny whoever is okay, but no where near as great as Bobby Cannavale who absolutely fit the character of Michael Bennett so much better.
I read this book awhile ago. I enjoyed it immensely then. Earlier this afternoon I was looking for something to fill the void the end of another great read (Abducted by T. R. Ragan) left without purchasing additional credits. I randomly selected Gone thinking an hour of listening would suffice. 7 plus hours later and I'm as rivoted as I was the first time!
What disappointed you about Gone?
Please get Bobby Cannavalle back!!! This Danny guy is awful!!! Made not want to listen anymore!!!!
What didn’t you like about Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva ’s performance?
Narration was awful. Accents were not realistic. Inflection was poor.
