Un commesso di un elegante negozio di abbigliamento, il maître dell’esclusivo 21 Club e una hostess dell’Air France sono le prime vittime della scia di morti che «il Maestro» si sta lasciando dietro, una scia che non sembra seguire un disegno preciso. L’intero dipartimento di Polizia di New York è sotto pressione, e in particolare il detective Michael Bennett, che deve fronteggiare un’emergenza anche nella vita privata. Rimasto vedovo da poco, Michael ha infatti ben dieci figli adottivi che mettono a dura prova la sua pazienza. E mentre le indagini si complicano e Bennett si ritrova impantanato in una falsa pista, che finisce per confondere ancora di più le carte, il vero assassino arriva a minacciarlo molto da vicino…

The second in this series about Michael Bennett, a detective whose wife has sadly died and has left him with ten (yes ten!) children. So a rather unusual setting for a crime novel but it works.

I was not as drawn into this installment as I was the first book. I will continue the series but this book was only ok in my opinion. It just did not grab me like book one. The characters were still great and the ending hints to the next book having a good plot. My quick and simple overall: not bad
Fast paced thriller with a satisfying ending.

Still grieving over the death of his wife and raising their 10 kids (on a cops salary in New York?), he s Leggi tutto
Another great read!

Es el primer libro que leo de este autor y me ha decepcionado. Tiene 373 páginas y la brevedad de los capítulos era lo que más me motivaba para continuar leyendo (la mayoría eran de entre 3 y 5 páginas) . El principio me hizo tener buenas expectativas. Conocemos al agente de policía Michael Bennett in Leggi tutto
With James Patterson's "co- written" novels, it is sometimes hit or miss. This one, for me was the latter. This is the second in the Mike Bennett series. I have not read the first one. Mike is a detective, formerly with the feds, a widower with ten adopted children. When several affluent people are
First it’s an easy book to read. Second I was entertained and laughed at loud when i read the line ‘Maybe Donald Trump went postal’. Given the novel was written in 2009 that is scary. The plot is that a psychopath has gone postal going around killing people all over New York and calling himself The Leggi tutto
