I, Michael Bennett
Police officers shot Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett's lifelong friend Hughie McDonough dead. From jail, the prisoner vows to rain epic violence down upon New York City-and to get revenge on Michael Bennett. Judges murdered To escape the chaos, Bennett takes his ten kids and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, on a much-needed vacation to his family's cabin near Newburgh, New York. But instead of the calm and happy town he remembers from growing up, they step into a nightmare worse than they could have ever imagined. Newburgh is an inferno of warring gangs, and there's little the police-or Bennett-can do to keep the children safe. Target: Michael Bennett As violence overwhelms the state, Bennett is torn between protecting his hometown and saving New York City. A partner in his investigations, federal prosecutor Tara McLellan, brings him new weapons for the battle-and an attraction that endangers his relationship with Mary Catherine. A no-holds-barred, pedal-to-the-floor, action-packed novel, I, Michael Bennett is James Patterson at his most personal and most thrilling best.

Really great book. I'm a Patterson fan all the way and this is one of his better works. But I do have to say that the best Patterson series that I have read is The Women's Murder Club series.

I prefer the Michael Bennett series over the Alex Cross series. I have read every single book Mr. Patterson has written. This title was pretty good and thrilling.

The whole Michael Bennett series is BORING, tried one a few years ago and didn't finish it...thought I would try again with "I Michael Bennett"...I am over half way through it and I am giving up. I am disappointed in James Patterson because I love the Cross books and have read them all. Maybe it's his co-writer???

So weird to see a book with the main character has the same name as yourself. Weird to see your name on the cover of a book to weirddd

I have read almost everything James P. has written, and have been really entertained with all of them. This one had me on the edge of my seat in a couple of chapters and the end made me laugh. Have you ever seen him on his commercials? He has a great deadpan sense of humor and that is exactly the way I took the ending. I can see him smiling as he leaves us hanging out to dry at the end! Good, I say! That assures us more of Michael Bennett, who is a good, self-effacing guy trying to do his best to cover all his bases, just like the rest of us.

Not bad, until you get to the end. I kept turning the pages thinking that it couldn't possibly just end .....like that. You feel really set-up.

By far my fav MB book!! This story had me intrigued from start to finish. I definitely got more than expected. I like that we got to see the family more in debt, as oppose to just in passing like in the other novels. I do hope that the relationship with MC and MB progresses, for the better, a permanent thing that is. Great writing, great storyline, one of JP's best!!!
