#BookReview – “Alert” (Michael Bennett Series#9)

AlertAnyone that is a fan of this series knows about its protagonist, a New York City detective and the cases he is assigned, Michael Bennett whom is a widower and father of 10(all adopted). This book opens with Mike away in Ireland with Mary Catherine his nanny and more.  But when he leaves back home for New York she does not go back with him which puts the kids in a rotten mood.  They instantly thinks that he did something wrong.  Then when a new nanny shows up to help Mike out with his party of 10 they truly feel that Mary Catherine is never coming home.  Now more importantly the crime at hand. There is a new terror threat on the city.  First there was an assassination that Bennett and his team are in the middle of investigating.  An just when they though they could put the case to bed another threat surfaces.  It seems that there are a group of Russians that want to avenge a fallen comrade by using science and demolitions to create a natural disaster.  They are also claiming responsibility for the assassination also.  With everything that is going on the city along with the entire eastern seaboard are put on high alert.  What new evidence will they unearth while trying to foil this terror plot.  Find out for yourself.  I enjoyed the book as I do all the stories in this series.  Bennett reminds me of Alex Cross, just a different city, same hardboiled demeanor, completely committed to both home and work and will not quit until he captures or kills the bad guy.  Hope you enjoy. – Norman LaVelle


“This is not a test”—every New Yorker’s worst nightmare is about to become a reality.

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.
