From #1 bestselling author Lisa Scottoline comes a pulse-pounding new novel.
Your family has been attacked, never again to be the same.
Now you have to choose between law…and justice.
Jason Bennett is a suburban dad who owns a court-reporting business, but one night, his life takes a horrific turn. He is driving his family home after his daughter’s field hockey game when a pickup truck begins tailgating them, on a dark stretch of road. Suddenly two men jump from the pickup and pull guns on Jason, demanding the car. A horrific flash of violence changes his life forever.
Later that awful night, Jason and his family receive a visit from the FBI. The agents tell them that the carjackers were members of a dangerous drug-trafficking organization—and now Jason and his family are in their crosshairs.
The agents advise the Bennetts to enter the witness protection program right away, and they have no choice but to agree. But WITSEC was designed to protect criminal informants, not law-abiding families. Taken from all they know, trapped in an unfamiliar life, the Bennetts begin to fall apart at the seams. Then Jason learns a shocking truth and realizes that he has to take matters into his own hands.
Sometimes justice is a one-man show.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
A car hijacking drags an innocent family into the sinister world of organized crime and corruption in this gripping thriller from Lisa Scottoline. Jason and Lucinda Bennett never imagined they’d be attacked by two assailants while driving home—much less that they’d tragically lose their daughter, Allison, in the cross fire. We were hooked on this story from that very first night, as the Bennetts find themselves under witness protection, with their survival still in jeopardy from a vicious cartel. But the intensity really kicks into high gear when Jason, defeated by a broken system, decides to go rogue and bring his daughter’s killers to justice himself. Narrator Edoardo Ballerini captures the heart-wrenching pain of a grief-stricken father—and the burning rage of his quest for justice. What Happened to the Bennetts is a nail-biting thriller about a family facing its worst fears.
Good Audio Book
Just finished this audio book on a long road trip. Both of us rated it a 7 out of 10. It was something that could happen to anyone which was an immediate connection. It had some twists and was a unique story with bad guys and good guys. I felt It dragged in the last 2 hours because it repeated the characters feelings and thoughts over and over. However once you start, you will finish it.
Such a suspenseful story! Could not stop listening.
