In this New York Times bestseller, Detective Michael Bennett must race against time to save New York City from chaos by tracking down the source of two mysterious attacks.
New Yorkers aren't easily intimidated, but someone is doing their best to scare them, badly: why? After two inexplicable high-tech attacks, the city that never sleeps is on edge. Detective Michael Bennett, along with his old pal, the FBI's Emily Parker, have to catch the shadowy criminals who claim responsibility-but they're as good at concealing their identities as they are at wreaking havoc.
In the wake of a shocking assassination, Bennett begins to suspect that these mysterious events are just the prelude to the biggest threat of all. Soon he's racing against the clock, and against the most destructive enemy he's faced yet, to save his beloved city-before everyone's worst nightmare becomes a reality.


  • Bought physical copy. Fantastic book!

    I purchase a new book before every trip, so I have a way to pass the time. I enjoy the writing styles of John Grisham and James Patterson, so it caught my eye. Red the whole thing, and it's great! Definitely would recommend a physical copy (it looks great on a shelf)
  • Horrible

    Awful, awful, awful. Review by SLZ Tahoe above says it all -- well, except for the fact that this is yet another time that I'm irritated that one can't really "delete" a book on an iPad (it's always there, even when you "delete" it) because I'm embarrassed to have this in my "library."

    I love Michael Bennett series, but this book was just horrible. Would normally take me a weekend to read a book -- this one told over two weeks. Had to force myself to finish it. Not their best work at all.

    It's really hard to imagine a book this bad, especially partially written by such a famous author. I'm just shaking my head and sorry I took the time to finish it.

    I really wanted to like this book because I love the Michael Bennett series, but I had to force myself to keep reading. It was just too out there and not enough good writing and lacked a good twist. Disappointed.

    This book wow is all I can say from beginning to end such a well written book with tons of excitement . I like how there isn't to many characters to remember and way to many turns its alot easier to follow the book . Patterson outdoes himself and im getting the rest of the Michael Bennett series !
  • More rubbish

    By Mac inaction
    There are many great books written that never get published, because the author is unknown and it is their first book. Yet, it seems ridiculous that just because your name is James Patterson, it can be added to a terrible story, badly written and boring plot, it can then be published. These ghost written, mass produced books are an insult to authors trying to get published. I an not sure when James Patterson lost the plot but it was a long time ago. Never again.

    Thanks for the headsup...I gave up on Patterson a few years ago....he and his co-authors seem to mail it in....which usually happens when you become a conglomerate instead of a great writer.
