Description

Caught in the crosshairs of a deadly standoff, Detective Michael Bennett must kill...or be killed.

Snow blankets the avenues of Manhattan's exclusive Upper West Side. The storm is the perfect cover for a fashionable, highly trained team of lethal assassins as they prowl the streets, hunting their prey. But their first hit is simply target practice. Their next mission may very well turn the Cold War red-hot once again.

Stepping directly into the line of fire, the president of the United States is in New York for a summit at the United Nations with his Russian counterpart. Pulled away from his family and pressed into service, Detective Michael Bennett must trace the source of a threat that could rip the country apart--and ignite a war the likes of which the world has never seen. With allegiances constantly in doubt and no one above suspicion, only Bennett can save the president--and the country--before the assassins' deadly kill shot hits its mark.

    Authors didn't bother to flesh out the charters or plot. Would have made a good comic book.
  • Dreadful

    I finished the book. It did not get better. One of the worst things I have ever read. Totally stupid and pointless.

    Wow! I want my money back! This must have been done in haste to make a quick few bucks. Reads like a short story a third grader might have conjured up and then you went to a sixth grader to finish it. Utterly predictable. Your pandering use of certain models and brands of weaponry must get you residuals from the manufacturers. Seriously, a British 303 Enfield cartridge and action for a sniper long range rifle? So fifty years ago. Your using all the "name dropping" calipers and such is so juvenile. Your research lack depth as did your character studies. You used to be much better. You're either getting lazy or just think your previous work will pull you through. The bit about the 6 wheel rock truck doing 70 mph is a joke. The whole premise was laughable and trite. You've lost a loyal fan with this one. Way too short and undeveloped. I want my money back!

    About 100 pages into this book and it just seems stupid. Writing style is so self consciously “cute”, first person narrative whenever that reads like a high school kid wrote it. I guess I expected more from Patterson. Avoid unless you are in 5th grade or younger.
