I recently had the opportunity to review the audio format of "I, Michael Bennett" by James Patterson. I became familiar with the character of detective Michael Bennett in “Tick Tock.” I quickly fell in love with the Bennett family. Bennett is a widower with ten adopted children, a beautiful Irish nanny, Mary Catherine, and a grandfather/Priest, Seamus. In this tale Bennett arrests Crime Lord Manuel Perrine. Perrine has long arms and no one is immune from his poison. The readers watch as Bennett’s world begins to fall apart. The Prosecution Attorney makes a play for Bennett. The family is on vacation when two of the kids are injured. The town of Newburgh is overrun with gangs. Mary Catherine has had enough of being taken for granted. Only after she leaves does Bennett realize how much he needs her. In the meantime Perrine promises that Bennett will suffer.
"I, Michael Bennett" is filled with non-stop action. Once again Patterson brings readers a thriller that will keep them eagerly listening. The ending had a twist I wasn’t expecting; it set things up for another Michael Bennett book. My husband and I listened to this one while we were driving, to wonderful advice like “Do the world a favor and get rid of him,” and “do it now or you’ll be sorry.” When hubby gets that animated you know it is a good book. James Patterson is a genius when it comes to plot; I don’t know how he comes up with his numerous ideas but I hope he will keep it up for many more years.
