Alert, James Patterson And Michael Ledwidge

Alert opening line: “Mike, Mary Catherine here said you’re NYPD.

My blurb:

How do you deal with a criminal whose very identity changes with each crime? Mike not only has to figure out who is behind these awful attacks, he also has to work out what the end game is. And at the same time deal with Seamus. His grandfather is not well, and he is in charge of Mike’s very large brood of kids. Will Mary Catherine come home from Ireland, and does she love him? A lot of questions for Detective Michael Bennett to deal with all at once.


Every New Yorker’s worst nightmare is about to become a reality.

New York has seen more than its fair share of horrific attacks, but the city is about to be shaken in a way it never has before. After two devastating catastrophes in quick succession,everyone is on edge. Detective Michael Bennett is assigned to the case and given the near impossible task of hunting down the shadowy terror group responsible.

With troubles at home to contend with, Bennett has never been more at risk, or more alone, fighting the chaos all around him.

Then a shocking assassination makes it clear that these inexplicable events are just the prelude to the biggest threat of all. Now Bennett is racing against the clock to save his beloved city – before the most destructive force he has ever faced tears it apart.

My verdict:

This is the eighth book in the Detective Michael Bennett series and I feel I now have to go back and read them all. A series not to be missed for sure.
