A crime lord has declared war on America. Only Detective Michael Bennett knows why.

Manuel Perrine doesn't fear anyone or anything. A charismatic and ruthless leader, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suit. Detective Michael Bennett once managed to put Perrine behind bars, the only official in the US ever to accomplish that. But now Perrine is out, and he has sworn to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him.

Detective Bennett, along with his ten adopted children, their nanny, and his grandfather, are hidden safely on a rural California farm, with guards courtesy of the FBI's witness protection program. Perrine begins to embark on an escalating series of assassinations across the country, killings whose brazenness and audacity bring into question the possibility of safety and law in the US. The FBI has no choice but to ask Detective Bennett to risk it all in Perrine's war on America.

With explosive action and fierce villainy that rivals James Bond movies at their best, GONE is the next astounding novel by James Patterson.

User Review  - Pam Boehmer - Goodreads

The sixth book in the Michael Bennett (and clan of Samus, the Priest Grandfather, Katherine, the Irish Nanny, and his 10 adapted kids) series. I always enjoy Patterson's books. Fast paced, wonderful characters, a great police thriller. Read full review

Review: Gone (Michael Bennett #6)

User Review  - Maryellen - Goodreads

The formulas in these crime novels are a bit predictable. You know that the hero is going to win. But if you are looking for a book that has a few surprises and some fun side stories, that you can finish in a few hours, this might be just what you're looking for! Read full review
