Publisher's Summary

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.
Judges murdered
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.

Would you try another book from James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge and/or Bobby Cannavale and Jay Snyder ?

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.

What could James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Better ending. Smarter task force.

Bogus "ending".

What would have made I, Michael Bennett better?

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.

Has I, Michael Bennett turned you off from other books in this genre?

In the series, yes.

Did Bobby Cannavale and Jay Snyder do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?
