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.
To escape the chaos, Bennett takes his 10 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, Michael Bennett is James Patterson at his most personal and most thrilling best.

Yes, loved all the others, this one was just weak, made detectives seem clueless. Felt like I was watching a clueless character in an bad 1980's horror film. The story line was great but the good guys just made way too many mistakes. And then the book just stopped.
Better ending. Smarter task force.
First, the title had nothing to do with the story. No relevance. The story itself was a better than average one, but only gets one star because of the "ending"...seriously guys? I can't recommend this one, although I enjoy the Michael Bennett series, because there were too many dangling story lines, and they neglected to finish the book. I thought that my ipod had misfired. If this is a set-up for the next in the series, it's really a cheap way to sell a book.
In the series, yes.
