The president declared Perrine the number one security threat to the United States. Michael Bennett is reluctantly dragged back into active service with the FBI to join the chase to bring Perrine to justice, thus leaving his family alone and vulnerable to Perrine's henchmen. The newly formed task force includes the FBI, CIA, NSA, and military special ops units from the three services.
The story bounces back-and-forth from tactics of the operational chase, to Bennett's family who are still in hiding, and to Perrine's personal and murderous activities in southern California and Mexico. Bennett's FBI partner, Emily Parker, seems to stay on the sidelines. Her character was never fully developed. I think she would have enhanced the story as a love interest. In fact many characters seem to make brief appearances and are never heard from again. The story seems to have no central theme and little spark.
The novel, co-authored by Michael Ledwidge, who I assume did most if not all the writing, is not one of Patterson's best--actually far from it.
I rate the novel a moderate 3.
The book is very fast-paced, as JP's books usually are, and in the end, you truly get to appreciate what it truly takes to finally defeat one of the most powerful drug cartels - it's all out war with no holds barred!

I read this in one sitting on holiday and for me it was JP at his best. Great characters all round.
More from the Bennett clan please! Looking forward to the next instalment of this wonderful family (not too far away I hope...?).
All true JP fans will love this. Hope others will too.
Enjoy the book!
Gone is as good if not better than those that preceded it.
As always, this book was hard to put down.
