Il caso è sotto gli occhi dei media e delle autorità cittadine, in gergo si dice «un caso ad alta visibilità». Sono stati rapiti in rapida successione tre ragazzi, tre rampolli di famiglie molto ricche di New York, che frequentavano scuole prestigiose e avevano una vita serena e normale. Finché qualcuno non l’ha interrotta brutalmente. I primi due infatti sono stati già restituiti alle famiglie dal misterioso e spietato rapitore. Morti. Nessuna richiesta di riscatto è mai stata inviata ai parenti: l’assassino ha scritto solo messaggi confusi, inneggianti a una fumosa giustizia sociale, ma nessuno riesce a capire il suo piano. Un caso molto difficile, che richiede tutta l’abilità del detective Michael Bennett, e che mette a dura prova il suo cuore di padre vedovo: le vittime, tutte giovanissime, gli ricordano la sua numerosa famiglia composta da dieci amatissimi figli adottivi. Ma quando da Washington interviene anche l’FBI, nella persona dell’affascinante agente Emily Parker, a complicarsi non sono solo le indagini, ma anche la vita sentimentale di Bennett...

Another enjoyable episode in the Michael Bennett series. I think I am starting to like him even more than Alex Cross! As usual in a Patterson book the action is continuous and frequently way over the top but it makes for a great read. There is the usual high body count, a crazy serial killer and a bo Leggi tutto
I seriously love this Michael Bennett series. I dare even say more than I did the Woman’s Murder Club series. Bennett is a completely likable character and is easily endearing to readers. His love life is very odd right now but that just adds to the ongoing story. The plot was so engrossing that I c Leggi tutto

I have read all of James Patterson’s books and to be frank they can be hit and miss. Sometimes he can produce fantastic stories but in recent years it seems like he churns out so many books that sometimes the story doesn’t have the author’s whole focus. The Michael Bennett series is co-written with Leggi tutto

I am slightly embarrassed to admit every time I read a James Patterson novel. I don't have any delusions that he's that great of a writer... or, for that matter, that he's even writing this stuff anymore. In fact, when I say I'm a fan of Patterson's Michael Bennett series, I should just edit that to Leggi tutto
Mind turning and full of religion. This story pulls Ash Wednesday into the plot and it’s an adventurous ride from start to finish. Detective Bennett never quits and uses all his skills to resolve the case. Francis Mooney is determined to alert the public about how the world is going to the garbage b Leggi tutto
James Patterson is one of my favorite authors, particularly when it comes to mystery & crime books. I am somewhat opposed to the whole "co-writing with other authors". I decided to research the reason for "co-writing" - I found this: "In September 2009, Patterson signed a book deal to write or co-wri Leggi tutto
