The president has come to New York to speak to the UN. The president’s life is in danger and it is Detective Michael Bennett who foils the assassination attempt. Now, with the president scheduled to return, they must find the would-be assassin before it’s too late.
Michael Bennett has to be one of my all time favorite literary characters. For those of you who haven’t read any of the other books in the series, here’s some background. Michael Bennett is a detective for the NYPD and he works major cases. He is also the father of 11 adopted children.
He has worked some badass cases over the year but this has to be his most badass yet. It’s starts with him stopping an assassination attempt on the president and for the rest of the book he is looking for a world class assassin.
As per Patterson’s usual style, this book was incredibly fast paced and full of action! It starts out quickly and never slows down for a moment. I enjoyed all of the new characters in this book as well as the old ones. I’m just so excited to see what Patterson comes up with next for this character!
