Summary

From the author of Sunday Times number one best seller The President Is Missing.

Detective Michael Bennett's enemies know where to find him.

An anonymous tip about crime in Upper Manhattan proves to be a setup. An officer is taken down - but despite the attackers' efforts, it's not Michael Bennett. 

New York's top cop is not the only one at risk.

One of Bennett's children is attacked. And a series of murders follows, each with a distinct signature, alerting Bennett to the presence of a professional killer.

Bennett can't tell what's driving the assassin.

But he can tell it's personal.

Includes bonus story Manhunt.

Predictable and very short, not his usual quality

This book is really short, very predictable and unremarkable. You could guess the ending about a quarter of the way in. Disappointed.

Great listen, not so great narrator

The story was really good and it was fast paced enough to keep me interested. However I was not a fan of the narrator. Not a huge problem and you get used to him by the end, but his voice can sometimes be a bit monotone and I wasn't a fan of the way he portrayed the characters at first.

Definately worth a listen though.

Great story but struggled to get into it.

I have read most of James Patterson’s books and thought that I would give audible a go. Really struggled to get into it. I found it quite boring to listen to. Quite disappointed.
