«James Patterson sa costruire una scena dai dettagli più significativi, quelli capaci di definire un personaggio fino a reggere un’intera trama.»
I newyorkesi non si fanno intimidire facilmente, ma qualcuno sta facendo del suo meglio per spaventarli sul serio. Dopo due esplosioni generate da ordigni inspiegabilmente avanzati, la città che non dorme mai è in allarme. Il detective Michael Bennett, insieme alla sua vecchia amica Emily Parker dell’FBI, deve individuare e catturare i criminali che si celano dietro gli attacchi, nascondendosi nell’ombra e nel caos che hanno generato. Sulla scia di un assassinio agghiacciante, in una corsa contro il tempo, sfidando il nemico più pericoloso che abbia mai affrontato, Bennett comincia a sospettare che questi eventi misteriosi siano solo il preludio di una minaccia più grande. Si troverà quindi costretto a ricorrere a ogni sua risorsa per salvare la sua amata città, prima che il peggiore incubo di tutti diventi realtà.

Another great addition to the series (Number 8). A crisis in NY, requiring the services of Detective Michael Bennett to save the city – while at the same time being tasked with trying to save his own family. A little far-fetched for me but still a fun, easy read! You've got to love Michael Bennett, Leggi tutto
Detective Michael Bennett had only been home from Ireland, where he had left Mary Catherine conducting business, for a matter of hours when the first call out came. Terror came in many forms; they all knew that after 9/11 – but when the latest attacks were confirmed to be high tech, computerised and Leggi tutto
Talk about action-packed! I read this is in one sitting because it was so fast-paced. The AI, bombs, earthquake to create tsunami in order to destroy something an ocean away is incredible to read about. This one was my favorite book so far of the Michael Bennett series. Seriously I love Mike B.’s ch Leggi tutto
For anyone who has been following the Michael Bennett series, you know what you get. New York City seems to be always besieged with troubles, pitting Bennett right in the middle of everything. His ten kids and his grandfather are the most terrific fictional family I've ever read about. If you haven't Leggi tutto

A rollicking yarn written so you do not want to put it down. Fast paced, slightly far fetched but on the cusp of believability. Michael Bennett a widower, New York detective, Catholic with 10 children and a father who is in his eighties. Mary Catherine the housekeeper and I suspect soon to be Mrs Be Leggi tutto
Generally, I like this series, some better than others, unfortunately this was one of the "not better" others! I found this one slow to read, I kept putting it down, although there was a tremendous amount of things going on. Maybe that was the problem. It was just too much to be believable. Although Leggi tutto
I don't know where this one went wrong for me. I was really looking forward to the story but I just couldn't get into it at all.
Once again, NYC is under attack by terrorists (seems to happen quite a lot). The thing I like about these attacks (I know that's gruesome to say) is that they come fast and furious - which leaves the NYPD running from one corner of the city to the other. It kept me engaged and highly interested in s Leggi tutto
The family of NYPD detective Michael Bennett - his 10 adopted children, his Catholic priest grandfather Seamus and his off-again, on-again love, Irish nanny Mary Catherine - take back seats to the action in this, the 8th in the series. And I can't say I'm terribly disappointed. Yes, it's sort of fun Leggi tutto
