Book Review: "I Michael Bennett" by James Patterson

Michael Bennett arrests a very powerful drug lord who is also responsible for killing Mike's long-time friend and fellow cop Hughie McDonough.    

As the trial approaches and he prepares to testify, Mike decides to take his 10 kids, their nanny and his Grandfather on a vacation to get away from it all. But...Perrine the drug lord has vowed revenge on Mike and his family, so their 'vacation' is anything but restful. Will Mike be able to protect his family?  

One of Patterson's better Bennett stories.  It is attention-grabbing and the suspense builds steadily as the story progresses.   I won't give away the plot, but there are two significant unanswered questions at the end, which is cool, because that most definitely means another Michael Bennett story coming  :)    

There is some violence and even a couple of gory scenes,but what I like about the Michael Bennett stories (he is an NYPD detective, a widower with 10 kids) is that no matter how much of a supercop he is, his family is definitely the priotity in his life.   If you like a good suspenseful cop story and your family is most important to you, you'll definitely appreciate "I Michael Bennett".
