Publisher's Summary

Every New Yorker's worst nightmare is about to become a reality. New York has seen more than its fair share of horrific attacks, but the city is about to be shaken in a way it never has before. After two devastating catastrophes in quick succession, everyone is on edge.

Detective Michael Bennett is assigned to the case and given the near-impossible task of hunting down the shadowy terror group responsible. With troubles at home to contend with, Bennett has never been more at risk, or more alone, fighting the chaos all around him. Then a shocking assassination makes it clear that these inexplicable events are just the prelude to the biggest threat of all.

Now Bennett is racing against the clock to save his beloved city - before the most destructive force he has ever faced tears it apart.

    "Ok for a listen but"
    What did you like best about Alert? What did you like least?

    Characters are great but ditch the sound effects


    Would you be willing to try another book from James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge ? Why or why not?

    Yes I would. This wasn't their best but I'd still want to know what happens to the Bennett family next. Would possibly buy the book not Audible version tho. The sound effects ruin the audible.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Danny Mastrogiorgio and Henry Leyva ?

    Yes. They aren't my favourites but I have heard worse.


    Do you think Alert needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Yes. So you know what happens next.


    Any additional comments?

    Ditch the sound effects. If I wanted a dramatisation I would buy a dramatisation.

    "Alert!"

    This was your typical Bennett book, a bit disappointed the kids, gramps and the nanny weren't in it much! It was far fetched in many areas but actually had some valid possibilities of future terrorist Threats made it an interesting listen.
