Patterson offers a new hero in this book, Mike Bennett. Father to 10 children, all adopted, he's drawn into a kidnapping/potential disaster on Christmas Eve when St Patrick's Cathedral is seized by terrorists. Inside the Cathedral are too many movers and shakers to count. I hope this is the first in a series for a very busy author, because the family life Patterson and Ledwidge show us is delightful!
This is the new character - detective Michael Bennett. It is a real page-turner which found suspense, laughter, and even tears, but left me wanting more of this new hero! I didn't see the end coming which, to me, is the mark of a great story! A must read!
Another awesome novel by James Patterson. He takes on a new co-author this time and with amazing results. One of the best books in a while. Tear jerker.. have the tissues ready!!
I've read all Patterson's books. This was absolutely the best yet! Has a strong emotional pull, also--with a parallel story line. I listen to books on CD on my commute. Today, I cried all the way listening to this book!
Fast paced. Hostages held in New York's St. Patricks Cathedral. Surprise ending.
