Police officers shot

Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican 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.

Judges murdered

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.

Target: Michael Bennett

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.

I, Michael Bennett

Patterson never disappoints!
August 1st, 2015
These Michael Bennett stories keep gettig beter with every book! The suspense in this book was heartpounding. At several points both Michael and his family are put in jeopardy. I could 't read fast enough at times. How does Patterson do it? Where does he come up so many great ideas. How much comes from him and how much comes from Michael Ledwidge? I can't wait t read the next one. I like this series more than the Alex Cross series. Patterson has become one of my top five favorite writers! Do yourself a favor and read these books.

Great book!

This book has everything to keep you reading. I love the main character Michael Bennett and his drive to catch and see justice done to the criminal he is trying to catch and protect his big family at the same time. He is an awesome cop and a loving father. I just hope he gets his man, his boss appreciates him for a job well done and that he gets the girl in the end_ if he would stop putting his foot in his mouth. Can't wait to read the next book to find out what happens.

Mr. Patterson and Mr. Ledwidge are quite the team. I am an Alex Cross fan thru and thru. Therefore,was afraid that I would not be as impressed with Michael Bennett....but I AM SMITTEN. This story had me on the edge of my seat from the first page...I couldn't read fast enough. Can't wait to read what happens next!!!
