Haunted, James Patterson & James O. Born

Haunted opening line: I looked down the barrel of my Glock 19 service weapon.

Haunted
My blurb:

New York police detective Michael Bennett feels like his life is falling down around him. He is the father of 10 children and despite his being a policeman his one son has committed a crime. Then his grandfather has a heart attack and he realises he needs some time away. When his former partner offers him a vacation home in Maine he grabs the opportunity with both hands. No sooner has he got there when two teenagers go missing. Michael and his former partner Sandy set about to find out what happened to them. What they discover will change the lives of several people, including Michael.

Haunted:

You can take Michael Bennett out of New York City, but you can’t take the cop out of Michael Bennett. Detective Michael Bennett is ready for a vacation after a series of crises push him, and his family, to the brink. He settles on an idyllic small town in the beautiful Maine woods. But just when Bennett thinks he can relax, he gets pulled into a case that has shocked the tight-knit community. Kids are disappearing with no explanation – until several bodies turn up in the woods. Far from the city streets he knows so well, Bennett is fighting to protect a town, the law, and the family that he loves above all else.

My verdict:

Another great installment in this series of books. Well written and will have you waiting for the next one to see where Michael ends up.
