Description

Detective Michael Bennett finally returns to New York City--and to the most unsettling, horrific case of his career.

At last, Detective Michael Bennett and his family are coming home to New York City. Thanks to Bennett, the ruthless crime lord whose vengeful mission forced the Bennett family into hiding has been brought down for good.

Back in the city that never sleeps, Bennett takes over a chaotic Outreach Squad in Harlem, where he receives an unusual call: a man claims to have seen a group of well-dressed men holding a bizarre party in a condemend building. With no clear crime or evidence, Bennett dismisses the report. But when a charred body is found in that very same building, he is forced to take the demented caller seriously--and is drawn into an underground criminal world of terrifying depravity.

    I loved the story, connecting dots, and the way of listing the events. It was kinda hard to put the book aside!
  • Terrible. Cheap shot at best

    I thought this one of the best M.Bennett books to date until you didn't end it like a real novelist but settled for a cheap "keep them going " to make more money. Are you afraid that you aren't good enough anymore to write and finish what was a good story ? Cheap , cheap , cheap. Brian Weir

    Just a fair book in my mind. Interesting in bringing mike and family back from protection in California. Beyond that just an attempt to put him back to work in New York.. The story was weak and full of holes.

    The family stuff is a waste of time. I flip through it until I get back to the story line. I doubt I'm the only one.
  • Predictable

    Well written, however, story line is predictable and mediocre at best.
  • Great until the end.

    A very compelling read. Especially good if you are already invested in the characters. But the ending is VERY weak. So many open questions and story lines that were just left hanging. I get it that you're going to do a sequel, but first finish the story lines in the current book.

    I was real excited for this book to finally hit the market. I've been a big James Patterson fan for a real long time. Needless to say I was totally disappointed with the book. To be left hanging again wasn't fair, I guess the bottom line is all that counts. I've preordered the next Alex cross book and I sure hope he's done a better job with that one then he did with this one.
  • Loved it!

    As always, James Patterson delivered. I love the Mike Bennett series, as well as all the others. Kept me going through the whole book. And, I loved the ending!
