Police officers shot . . . judges murdered . . . and Detective Michael Bennett is the killer's next target.
Detective Michael Bennett arrests an infamous Mexican crime lord in a deadly chase that leaves Bennett's lifelong friend 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 ten 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.
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, I, Michael Bennett is James Patterson at his most personal and most thrilling best.

I, Michael Bennett
I love the Michael Bennett stories, and was hooked by this one...BUT, this may be the worst ending to a book that I have ever read. Why didn't he just say, "to be continued." You are going to have to buy another book if you want to know how this story ends.
Not one of James Patterson's best
I am a huge Patterson fan. His books are what got me back to reading. I love the Michael Bennett books. I read some of this book's reviews so I was prepared to be somewhat disappointed. I agree, this is not a great effort on Patterson's part and it is the worst of the Michael Bennett series by far. I expect a certain quality of writing when I read Patterson and it is not here in the story.
I, Michael Bennett
What a waste of time and money!! I couldn't believe the story just ended and left you hanging. I have enjoyed most all of the Alex Cross books as well as several other James Patterson reads, but this one was very disappointing.
