What isn't there to love about James Patterson? Once again, he doesn't disappoint in this fast-action thriller with co-author Michael Ledwidge. So far, all the Michael Bennett series have been great from beginning to end. It's very hard to put the book down once you start it. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and look forward to reading the next book in the Michael Bennett series, The Worst Case.
James Patterson returns with his new character Michael Bennett for his second outing in "Run For Your Life". After the events of "Step On A Crack" in which we were first introduced to Michael Bennett. He is still a devoted father of his 10 adopted children and mourning the loss of his wife Mauve. A new terror strikes at the heart of NYC in a fast paced situation of media portions. Patterson delves out a enemy of revenge and the NYC is the target. The rich had better watch out because wrong doing may put you on a list. Bennett heads the investigation trying to follow leads and the motive and also trying to get ahead of the killer in a novel full of suspense mayhem.
I love this series so far. I have high hopes that it will be as successful as the Cross and Women's Murder Club series are. I have yet to read a Patterson book that I have disliked. I think anyone who enjoys a great mystery novel will be easily addicted to Patterson's work.
James Patterson captivates you again with Run For Your Life. This one, however, is a little far fetched with the main character traveling to a foreign land where he has absolutely no help and in reality would not have lasted a day. But, read it with that in mind and enjoy the escape. Patterson keeps you reading with his short chapters and before you know it, you're through. It's a thriller to be experienced.
I've been reading James Patterson books for years. I especially love the Alex Cross novels, but I had caught up on all those and had been waiting for another when I found his first novel with Detective Mike Bennett in it. I'm almost liking him as much as Alex Cross. I've since read both of the books featuring Detective Mike Bennett and am waiting for either another Alex Cross or Mike Bennett novel to come out.
I like the way that eventhough Alex Cross and Mike Bennett are these semi-tough, seen it all officials, they still have a very strong loving and emotional attachment to their families. They come across like real people in real situations.
