Another good Michael Bennett thriller from Patterson and crew. This one is, in my opinion, one of the best in the series so far. Bennett takes on a Mexican drug lord who is captured and then escapes during his trial in NYC. The drug lord seems to have unlimited resources and is considered a god by his followers who also worship a Mexican saint of death (Santa Muerte). In the mean time, Bennett's family (10 kids, his granddad, and Mary Catherine, the nanny) are vacationing upstate. While there, the drug lord manages to put a hit on two of the kids and ultimately, Bennett's entire family is threatened and in grave danger. A real page-turner that I would recommend!
