Michael Bennett and Alex Cross were two really engaging characters. They were well-defined and I knew and cared about how they reached where they were when i first met them. I looked forward to each new and thrilling story. Then Mr Patterson decided to check out. As I understand it, he produces a treatment of 60 to 80 pages, establishes the plot and characters, then he hires a writer to turn it all into a full-length book. I absolutely would not mind this if the hired writers were as talented as Mr Patterson, but they're not. I wouldn't buy their books and I feel conned into doing it just because I want to read about the main characters' storylines.

This latest Michael Bennett story is a prime example. There are pages and pages about the children and the family which I feel are written at a level suitable for eary teens. Then suddenly we leap to obscenely violent episodes, then presto chango we're back with the family in the witness protection program (or a very watered-down version of it) and it's not at all convincing. It's fluffy page-filling at best. I checked and i think that I could skip almost every family chapter and not only would it not really affect the story, but I would probably enjoy the whole thing a whole lot more.

I have decided that I will not buy any more James Patterson books because they are no longer written by him and I have no interest in what is now being published under his name.

Mr Patterson: I read about seven or eight books a month and Alex Cross was one of the most exciting characters i had ever met. His style, family and history were rivetting. His life was intense and I introduced him to so many people. I am very sad that you set him adrift to be used and abused by amateurs.

When my friends make fun of me for reading Patterson's novels, I point out that they are cracking good stories about engaging people. When that stops being true about one series, there's generally another series just firing up.

But this is the first time I've ever felt cheated of the price of admission.

I read this on Kindle, where it ends at 90%. It took only a couple of hours to hit 45% and I'm a slow reader. The Amazon site says there are 416 pages in the book. Really? How many reams of white space? Half the kids don't make it to breakfast, let alone into whole sentences. One of the twins, Bridget, is completely absent til literally the last page.

Several reviewers mention characters doing stupid stuff. Yes. No spoilers, but with this super-killer on the loose, it's hard to believe that family members -- adult family members -- would take stupid/silly chances. Yes, as readers we know that SuperKiller has to find the family. But if the authors had taken the trouble to make it believable and complicated and interesting the book would have lasted another hour.

So -- not good news, folks. It's too short and what's here is not that good. It's like a drive by, a quick one. We see the people we've grown to like, but we don't get to visit.

I wish I could give it a five, really.

Why does this happen? A great fiction series like Michael Bennet gets stuck between the hype of the success and the rush to publish another book.
What happened here? This book has nothing to do with the previous ones which were written in a serious well crafted manner. The plot in this book has been used so many times there is a point where you don't know if you want to laugh or cry because its so predictable.
I hear Mr Patterson is one of the most prolific contemporary authors.... with books like this one any one can do that.
More respect to you readers please.

I think l've lost my taste for blood and guts. Was it suspenseful? Yes. Did it move fast? yes. Was it gory? Yes. The character of Mary Catherine was believable and sweet. McMurphy was cliché. There are lots of characters you won't want to know. Patterson and Ledgwige certainly explored every aspect of low life criminals like Licata, Vida, Perrinne. Special agent Parker was a character I liked but Michael Bennett needs to retire and stop putting his family of 10 kids in jeopardy. That was over the top for me.

This is an easy read, rushed into print without a reasonable review and editing process. Don't waste your money on this book that wouldn't get a second glance from a publisher if it weren't for the Patterson name. It gives all popular authored sequels a bad name. For that reason you should boycott it.

This edition of the series seems like it was written by someone else. It seems rushed, like the author had alot of moving pieces he wanted to include but only so many pages to fit it into. It was not a waste of time to read, but it was not as exciting as the previous novels in this series.

The last 25% of the book was advertisement...I waited months for this? This was a SHORT story, not a novel. VERY DISAPPOINTING...I EXPECT BETTER FROM THIS AUTHOR!

I enjoy the Michael Bennett series, and got this one to read the end of the Perrine story. The story itself is OK, but I could do without the commentary. If I want half-baked right-wing political opinions, I'll watch Faux News.
