This novel focuses once again on a case handled by Michael Bennett and his team of detectives. They are focusing on keeping the President of the United States safe from being assassinated. After one failed attempt, Bennett and his team get on high Alert to ensure nothing happens to him again. Meanwhile, Bennett and Mary Catherine start to get very worried about Brian and his friend Marvin, who seem always to be away from the house.
I enjoyed this book far more than the previous one, Alert. Bullseye had more of a more straightforward plot, a more natural structure to follow, and not many characters or villains to remember. There is also the enjoyment of getting more involved in Bennett’s personal life, such as the issues there are with Brian and his new friend Marvin, the growth of his relationship with Mary Catherine.
I also enjoyed the writing of the plot twists, which is typical for Patterson. He often writes events in ways to make you think something went wrong when it didn’t really. It is sporadic when it does go terribly. I think he tends to have a soft spot for his characters, and doesn’t like to keep kicking them when they’re down. I only have a hard time giving detective fiction or procedural novels, five stars since they can get repetitive and follow the same general plot.
I would rate this book as 4/5 stars. I would recommend this novel for Patterson lovers, fans of the Michael Bennett series, and readers who enjoy the mystery/thriller genre.
We go along with Bennett as he works with the Secret Service in trying to find a hired assassin before it to late. As with other Michael Bennett books, also will focus on his family life with his 10 kids.
This book is written in the usual James Patterson style, fast paced, small chapters. I found book hard to put down.
Recommend this book, not only to the James Patterson fans. But those who enjoy mystery/thriller books as well.
