Lo chiamano il Re Sole, perché il suo potere è immenso e di fronte a lui tutti si inchinano. È potente, sì, ma al servizio del male. È Manuel Perrine, spietato capo di un cartello della droga messicano. Il detective Michael Bennett con una spericolata operazione di polizia è riuscito a catturarlo, ma purtroppo durante l’azione qualcosa è andato storto e Hughie, amico d’infanzia di Bennett e suo collega, ci ha rimesso la vita. Ora Michael ha un motivo in più per volere che il Re Sole paghi per tutto il male che ha fatto. Ma anche dalla prigione di massima sicurezza in cui è rinchiuso, il criminale riesce a muovere le sue pedine e la prima udienza del processo si conclude con altri morti. E la spirale sembra destinata a non finire. Obiettivo finale: lo stesso Bennett e perfino la sua numerosa, adorata famiglia, composta da dieci figli adottivi. A nulla sembra servire una vacanza strategica nella vecchia casa sul lago, lontano da New York: Bennett è nel mirino di Perrine e la macchina di morte non si fermerà…

I have read and really enjoyed books 1 and 2 in this series and somehow contrived to jump a couple and arrive at number 5. I have to admit to feeling a bit let down by this one. I am accustomed to Patterson novels being unrealistic and that's okay - it is fiction after all. However I, Michael Bennett Leggi tutto
Hated the ending seemed like a ploy. Lacked details and at parts did not seem even plausible. Characters were worse than flawed. Plot too simple just tries too hard and seemed like that of a first time author than a seasoned veteran. Could of done better.
I'll say right up front that the ending to I, MICHAEL BENNETT, is horrible. It isn't even a cliffhanger, its just the ending of the chapter. It could of easily occurred fifty pages earlier, and you would have kept reading, because there's more to the story. Disappointing, and a major ripoff, if you
WARNING! Many spoilers! Plus: It will save you time reading this book!!! This really stretched my "reality muscle" and made me wonder how dumb one should assume an Irish cop who arrests a Mexican drug lord could possibly be. Throughout this novel, Michael Bennett, whom I have come to love for his de Leggi tutto
I liked this book. It was suspenseful, thrilling, and just felt... dangerous all the way through. In fact, I did initially give it 4 stars. BUT... You know how you prepare your favorite meal on your best plates? And it's piping hot and fresh? And it's accompanied by a perfectly chilled glass of wine Leggi tutto
This installment of the Michael Bennett series was interesting and emotional but I’m not a fan of reading gang or mob stuff to be honest. However, the family really takes hits in this installment. I did get into the story which I worried about because of the crime plot. I believe this will be a favo Leggi tutto
The Mexican cartel has taken over in New York.....not if Michael Bennett has anything to do with it. This is one of the most crucial , deathly, inhuman story written and by my standards it was good. Just doing his job, Detective Bennett arrested the drug king, Manuel Perrine, but now has become the
This books is a prime example of why I no longer buy James Patterson's books. I use to buy them all, until about 10 years ago, or so, when Patterson wrote his first "cliffhanger." It was, I believe, an Alex Cross book, where it ended, suddenly, without being resolved. I had purchased that book, and
Shameless money grab! I have heard about issues with the ending of this book. I thought maybe there were some loose ends or that there was something to look forward for the next book. Sadly, the problems are much, much worse than that. Basically we get half a book, it's almost as if once the authors Leggi tutto
This is quite possibly the worst "Best Seller" that I have ever read. I gave it one star because the plot was interesting enough that I wanted to finish the book but then "bam" the ultimate ripoff. There is no ending. Obviously there will be a sequel and I am aware that this is a continuing series b Leggi tutto
