The nation has fallen into mourning after the unexpected death of a beloved former first lady, and the most powerful people in the world gather in New York for her funeral. Then the inconceivable occurs. Billionaires, politicians, and superstars of every kind are suddenly trapped within one man's brilliant and cold-blooded scenario.Bennett, father of 10, is pulled into the fray. As the danger escalates, he is hit with devastating news: after fighting for many years, his wife has succumbed to a terrible disease. As New York descends into chaos, he has lost the great love of his life, faces raising his heartbroken children alone, and must somehow rescue 34 hostages.Day after day, Bennett confronts the most ruthless man he has ever dealt with, a man who kills without hesitation and counters everything the NYPD and FBI throw at him with impunity.

    This was a great book!!!!

  • Breanna J

    I enjoy this series, it is a little deeper than some of the ghost writer series that JP puts his name on.

  • Werner Weitzel

    A great piece of entertainment well written and well presented. Refreshing to hear a new person has joined the fold. Hope to hear more about Bennett in the future. Good twist on his family with his ten kids. crazy grandfather and and delightful new nanny. Better than hearing Cross whine about his.

    Full of plot holes, cliches, and stereotypes.. Oh and I really enjoyed the several comments about how the criminals were not terrorists because they were white (sarcasm). I think Mr. Patterson needs to pick up a dictionary and look up the word terrorist. The narration was ok, I could have done without the background music.

    This was a very interesting book - and the narration was spectacular!!! Very enjoyable. I listened to this at work and didn't want to get up to go to lunch or take breaks!

    I enjoyed this story. I thought the right amount of attention was put into getting to know the main character and his life. You were shown his vunerable side, and his tough side. It was a good story and I look forward to the rest of the books in the series. I would recommend it.

    I've read James Patterson for YEARS, and enjoy Alex Cross more than I can even describe, but hate his books that are co-authored; however, I thought I'd give this one a try, but didn't even finish it. Did not like the plot, the ridiculous ten kid family and could not abide listening to the reader.

  • Kim

    Very unbelievable character. A police officer with 10 kids? The plot of the crime story was good. The narration was very good. But the backstory was horrible! Anyone with kids will tell you this story is ridiculous. It was completely unnecessary for Patterson to add this element to the book and in my opinion ruined it.
