Felt it had a very unsatisfying ending and just wanted to sell the next offering.
During the investigation Detective Bennett manages to chase the suspect and apprehend him, and in so doing,witnesses the suspect killing someone to enhance his chances in order to get away.
The suspect's organization kills the presiding judge of the trial and the manages a daring escape all on the orders of the suspect, as he corrupts anyone around him.
An excellently written book from a well known writer.
It had actually been a while since I read a Michael Bennett book and this was a nice dip back into the Bennett's world. I'm still amazed by their having an apartment big enough for their family on the UWS, but I also liked that this book was also taking then out of the city. I felt bad for MB, but I also found myself angry with him. He fouled it up with Tara and Mary Catherine. At what point does he learn?
Some of this was surreal to the point of being unrealistic -- a breakout on the 14th floor of the courthouse? Boys running away with girls who happen to be tied into the Latin King thug charged with a hit on them? But I read it. I always do. The cliffhanger with the next book was a interesting twist and I look forward to reading the new one as soon as it's out to find out how their time in Witness Protection goes.
I don't have the issues that some other reviewers did about the ending. I don't see it as cheating at all.
One thing Patterson and his co writers do best is the sympathetic older characters: Nana Mama and Seamus. I like them as much or more as the main characters
mention of another book and no resolution of anything! I like continuing characters in books but am tired of the current
triology, or more, trend where you seem to never get an ending until you pay a lot for multiple books. At the price of Patterson's books I want the story to end in the book even though the main character will be back in another eventually. I was so disappointed and just sat stunned while I figured out "this is IT". Now I have to wait for some conclusion and don't even have an idea how long that might be. Shame on you Mr. Patterson, I think your many readers deserve better from you. P.S. It's way past time for Mike and MC to get together, that part of the plot of the books it beginning to read like they're a couple of teenagers instead of adults.

Tense thriller with humour thrown in for good measure from this gregarious cop and his wonderful family. Wish I belonged to one so strong and loving.
But credit where credit is due, I, Michael Bennett is a good read, full of tension-packed action sequences and bad guy characters you want the hero to put behind bars.
The plot is good too, with time taken to build up Bennett's family background, which has often been poorly dealt with in the past.
This novel is a good read, full of suspense and plenty of surprises along the way.
One piece of advice, read this tale before moving on to 'Gone', the next book in the series
This latest episode did not disappoint.
Couldn't put the book down, and left me wanting to read the follow up as soon as possible.
As I was progressing through the story I could see the pages getting fewer and fewer and I remember thinking "he's going to have to get a move on if he's going to tie up all the loose ends". So you can imagine my disappointment when the story just stops without the baddie being brought to justice and Detective Michael Bennett and his family of 12 plus the nanny in danger.
It was a good read with all the usual Patterson pace and tension but a huge let-down to have to wait for the next book to read the conclusion.
Mr Patterson please don't do this again or you're going to lose a lot of fans!
