Book Review – Burn (Michael Bennett Series #7)

Burn by James Patterson“This book picks up exactly where “Gone” left off.  So the family is still in California at the safe-house.  And Mike is on his way to a trial to give a statement on behalf on one of the murder victims from New York.  When Bennett, MC and the gang make it back to New York he has been reassigned to a new unit, one of the mayor’s pet projects.  Even though he is not happy with the assignment he accepts it and makes the best of it.  But as he is getting the squad of fresh off the press detectives in order he stumbles upon a couple of cases that really had them digging their feet in to get to the bottom of things.  Meanwhile, on the home front some guy and his attorney has shown up unannounced to the Bennett home claiming to be Chrissy’s father and is trying to take custody of his child.  And on the other end of town the Major Case Division, that Mike was originally assigned to, needs his help in closing a high profiled string of jewelry store robberies.  So there is a lot going on in this book, however its all laid out in a way where you will not get lost in the storytelling.  It was a great addition to the series.  I cant wait for the next Michael Bennett book.  I would love to see a Michael Bennett / Alex Cross crossover novel.” – Norman LaVelle
