Description
Police officers shot . . . judges murdered . . . and Detective Michael Bennett is the killer's next target.
Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett's lifelong friend 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 ten 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.
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 most thrilling best.

        September 24, 2012
        NYPD detective Michael Bennett faces the most deadly threat of his career in this latest adventure from Patterson and Ledwidge. In an attempt to arrest Manuel Perrine, the head of a brutal Mexican drug cartel, Bennett and his fellow NYPD brethren turn up at the college graduation of the elusive criminal’s daughter. The plan goes awry and, though Perrine is apprehended, the cost in lives is high. Now, from inside prison, Perrine exerts his power to exact revenge against everyone responsible for his detention, especially Michael Bennett. Bobby Cannavale’s deep, well-modulated voice is perfect for Bennett’s first-person narration. He fully inhabits the character as well as the detective’s supporting cast. Jay Snyder skillfully narrates chapters written in the third person, imbuing his reading with an intensity that provides a counterpoint to Cannavale’s more formal, deliberate style. Both readers know how to handle action sequences and keep a story moving from one suspenseful set piece to the next. This audiobook is a satisfying addition to Patterson and Ledwidge’s series that won’t disappoint fans. A Little, Brown hardcover.

        Patterson's partnership with Ledwidge is already up to the fifth installment in the perilous adventures of NYPD Detective Michael Bennett (Tick Tock, 2011, etc.). After long hours planning and praying and waiting for the perfect chance, the NYPD-DEA task force charged with arresting Manuel "the Sun King" Perrine, head of Mexico's Tepito drug cartel, is ready to pounce. Despite some last-minute glitches that lead to the first of many casualties, they grab Perrine and lock him up. But Bennett, who's played a leading role in the task force, soon realizes that his troubles have only begun, because Perrine's many loyal, well-paid followers, lots of them only a phone call away from his Manhattan cell, really, really don't want to see him go down. Once Bennett turns down a $250 million bribe to turn Perrine loose, the gauntlet has been thrown, and he spends the rest of this shoot-'em-up dodging bullets, many of which find their way to less lucky targets. Perrine's eye-candy bodyguard, Marietta, is especially insinuating and emphatic in her threats, but whenever Bennett picks up the phone, it's the same deal: We're going to kill you, we're going to kill your family, we're going to kill two police officers a day until you release the Sun King. Nor are these idle threats. Perrine arranges for two of Bennett's 10 adopted children to get shot; his minions disrupt the legal proceedings with a bang; and those first two cops, at least, are toast. Will Bennett's loyal nanny-and-more, Mary Catherine, abandon her charges in their darkest hour? Will Perrine escape from custody in a made-for-the-movies sequence? Will Bennett finally close his case for good? Or will Patterson and Ledwidge ring down the curtain leaving the conflict unresolved and paving the way for a sequel? Stay tuned.

        February 15, 2012

        Cops shot on the street and judges in their courtrooms: there's lots of violence in New York as a South American crime lord takes over. Det. Michael Bennett takes his ten kids upstate for a breather, but the violence follows; that nasty crime lord is targeting him and his family. Fifth in a series that has more than 12 million copies in print worldwide; obviously, buy multiples, though I wish he wouldn't make New York look quite so jungly.
