Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous South American 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. 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 growing up in, they step into a nightmare. Newburgh is an inferno of warring gangs, and there’s little the police - or Bennett - can do to keep the children safe. 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, I, Michael Bennett is James Patterson at his most personal and thrilling best.
Not the best Patterson I have listened to. The story started well but gave the impression that the writer was in a hurry to finish. The main character was well defined and the reader will understand where he is going. There was always something to entice you to turn it on again on the return journey.
I love the Michael Bennett series after 5 books it feels like we know each character so well, and this story doesn't let us down. A typical edge of your seat thriller un till the end. Love it!
