Book Review – “Gone”

9780316210980_p0_v1_s260x420Okay, I like the book, but not as much as the one it precedes “I, Michael Bennett”.  It seem to drag in the beginning but it started to pick up as Bennett was asked to join the investigation with the FBI.  Overall it was a good read and like Patterson always does he inundated the book with intricate characters that allow the story to unfold in a very precise way.  It was a book filled with action, blood shed, thrills and more blood shed. The read really came to life in the last 15-20 chapters or so as the adventure started to ramp up.  I give this book 3 out of 5 stars as it was not as entertaining as the others in this series, but still worth the read to figure out what happens to Michael, Mary Catherine and the family. – Norman LaVelle



Manuel Perrine doesn’t fear anyone or anything. A charismatic, ruthless strongman, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suits. Detective Michael Bennett is the only U.S. official ever to succeed in putting Perrine behind bars. But now Perrine is out-and vows to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him.

Bennett and his ten adopted children are living on a secluded California farm, guarded by the FBI’s witness protection program. Soon Perrine begins a campaign of assassinations, brazenly slaughtering powerful individuals across the country. The FBI has no clue where Perrine is hiding or how he is orchestrating his attacks. It is forced to ask Bennett to risk it all-his career, his family, his own life-to fight Perrine’s war on America.

With intensity, speed, and explosive action rivaling James Bond movies at their best-and featuring one of the most complex and chilling villains ever created-GONE is the newest astounding novel by James Patterson.
