Il potente narcotrafficante messicano Manuel Perrine non teme niente e nessuno. Carismatico e spietato, massacra i rivali con la stessa disinvoltura con cui sfoggia i completi di lino bianco che sono diventati il suo marchio distintivo. Michael Bennett è l’unico che sia mai riuscito ad arrestarlo, ma ora Perrine è fuggito dal tribunale dove si stava tenendo il processo a suo carico e ha giurato di trovare e uccidere il detective e tutte le persone a lui care.
Costretti a fuggire da New York, Bennett e i suoi dieci figli adottivi si sono nascosti in una sperduta fattoria nel Nord della California, sotto il programma di protezione dei testimoni dell’FBI. Una situazione che pesa sul morale di tutti: Michael è stato sollevato dell’incarico, i ragazzi non possono frequentare la scuola e l’isolamento forzato è motivo di continue tensioni familiari.
Intanto Perrine, deciso a dare la scalata all’industria della droga, dà inizio a una sanguinosa campagna di terrore, uccidendo potenti magnati del crimine da un capo all’altro del paese. Senza il minimo indizio su dove si trovi, né su come stia organizzando quella strage, l’FBI non ha scelta: deve chiedere a Michael Bennett di rischiare tutto – la carriera, la famiglia e la vita – per stanare Perrine e sconfiggerlo.
Intensità, ritmo e azione degni di uno dei migliori film di James Bond e una delle più complesse e agghiaccianti figure di cattivo mai create: l’ultimo e imperdibile romanzo di James Patterson è un thriller che emoziona a ogni pagina.

Much better than the last book and action packed all the way. Lots of suspense too as I waited for the inevitable attack on Bennett's family. I reckoned no author was going to set something like that up and then not follow through. It was just a matter of when. It certainly made reading the book ten Leggi tutto
I am not sure if it is just me but I am getting really fed up of all James Patterson's long running series. His stand alone novels show that he (and his co authors) can write good tales when they put their minds to it but the long running ones are just getting boring. This book does round off what h Leggi tutto

Promises much but delivers little As a former Patterson fan, this was disappointing. It looks exciting on the outside but I ended up disliking the principle character because of his womanising. Also, would you really leave your ten motherless kids who are already in witness protection to try and snar Leggi tutto
What's not to like? This series stars a street-wise detective, Michael Bennett, now on the run from a Mexican drug kingpin. While earlier novels focused more on Bennett, the recipe has been altered with a touch more comedic flavor from the ten adopted children, as well as the spice of a brewing roma Leggi tutto
This book was originally going to get a 2-star rating from me, until the last big action scene of the story managed to make it enjoyable enough for 3 stars. The thing is, I love reading about Michael Bennett's kids and his nanny. I think they're really interesting characters. I really, really don't li Leggi tutto

After the way the last Michael Bennett book finished, i couldn't wait for this to be released... Now I've read it I'm so disappointed.. The beginning was slow and boring, too much about how life on the farm was, and milking cows. The ending was rushed, very rushed... I couldn't believe after 2 books Leggi tutto
If you've ever read a novel by bestselling author James Patterson, you pretty much know what to expect from him. Usually assisted by a co-author, Patterson delivers numerous novels throughout the year, all of which follow the same basic formula. Despite this cookie-cutter approach, I've always been
