Présentation de l'éditeur

Detective Michael Bennett is coming home to New York. And a world of unimaginable evil awaits.



Having brought an end to the vengeful mission of the ruthless crime lord who forced the Bennett family into hiding, Michael is finally back in New York City.



However, Bennett is thrust straight back into a horrifying case: a witness claims to have seen a group of well-dressed men holding a sickeningly depraved and murderous gathering in a condemned building.



The report reads like the product of an overactive imagination. But when a charred body is found in that very same building, the unbelievable claim becomes all too real…

4.0 étoiles sur 5 BACK TO BUSINESS AS USUAL FOR DETECTIVE MICHAEL BENNETT! 28 septembre 2014
Par the GreatReads! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The seventh installment in the Detective Michael Bennett series, Burn by James Patterson, and co-written with Michael Ledwidge, is vastly different from the many other books the master-storyteller has written during the past two years. Patterson has co-authored a number books with different authors, yet the Detective Michael Bennett series is the one and only series in which he has consistently teamed up with Michael Ledwidge, and it has never failed to throw up surprises. The latest installment, Burn, is no different and fans of the series are in for an exciting ride as Detective Michael Bennett is thrust into a topsy-turvy world trying to solve two difficult cases.

But if you want an explosive start you are in for a surprise as the book begins on a sedate note which James Patterson exploited to the hilt to build up the story. Books that begin with a real cracker like Cross My Heart (Alex Cross #21) actually fizzled out in the end. But what keeps me reading James Patterson is his relaxed writing style and short chapters which is not common and certainly easy to follow. As you dig deeper into the book the story begins to take a stranglehold on you, leaving you no choice but to keep going to the very end.

After busting the Sun King drug cartel and crossing swords with crime lord Manuel Perrine in Los Angeles (Gone, Michael Bennett #6), Detective Michael Bennett of the Major Crimes Division, along with his family finally returns home to New York. Bennett looks forward to a quiet time but is soon reassigned to Outreach Squad in Harlem. Grudgingly he takes over and is soon embroiled in a new case when a burnt body is found in a building where a caller had earlier informed to have witnessed strange goings-on. Detective Bennett's investigation leads him to a powerful political figure and his cronies, and the horrifyingly maddening world of immorality, corruption and wickedness in which they lived.

In a twist to the story, Detective Bennett has to contend with a robbing spree that targeted high-end jewelry stores across the city, and his superior, Chief of Detectives Raymond Starkie, determines that the heists must be stopped and asked Bennett and his team to solve it immediately. Detective Bennett is caught up in two seemingly different cases - one involving a politician and his associates who indulge in the worst possible act of evilness, and the other a bunch of criminals on a looting spree. To add to the pressure, things are not going smoothly on the home front.

How will Bennett handle his professional and personal lives as they come to collide with each other? Is there a connection between the two cases Bennett is pursuing? Burn by James Patterson begins on a sedate note but the pace quickens fast enough and ends with a bang. It is one of the better James Patterson books in recent times. I find this Detective Michael Bennett thriller as satisfying as I was disappointed with Cross My Heart!

This book was by far the worst Michael Bennett book JP has written thus far. We start off nice and slow, I mean really slow which wouldn't really be a problem if it made sense. We're introduced to Mikes arch nemesis in the department that no one has ever heard of before this book who is intent on screwing with his career..great is this the story? No. Just some added fluff for us to understand why Mike is where he is. Next we're introduced to band of misfit cops that within two days are now great and responsible..great is this the story? No. It gets better... We're next introduced to Chrissy's biological father who makes two appearances in the book and could of been left on whatever side of the brain Mr. Patterson formed him on. That part of this 4 part story could of been left completely out. We have a cannibal and a jewel thief that exit the book just as quickly as they entered. A suicide for one and only Mr. Patterson knows what happened to the jewel thief, cause OBVIOUSLY I'm not interested in knowing. Did he go to jail, get a reduced sentence for leading them to the killer cannibals? What happened to the senator, did he get caught? That's it i guess.. I have more to say, but I'll try to leave you as confused as JP left me ...

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Bennett is back and he may get burned. 29 septembre 2014
Par Chrystal - Publié sur Amazon.com

James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge have again teamed up to create another Michael Bennett thriller, Burn. This installment may very well scorch the Patterson fans' avid appetite, as this rousing novel follows two intense cases.

Be forewarned before the Burn ignites, some readers are likely to find the first several chapters to be uncommonly uneventful - but to be fair, there is nothing inherently wrong with allowing a story to unfold - luckily with Patterson's particular conversational style of storytelling and very short chapters - which I truly love - things really just move along as they should.

Bennett and his crew stumble upon the secret life of a successful powerful political figure and his friends, as they enter an underworld of terrifying depravity, madness and murder. Just when Bennett and his crew are close to apprehending the suspects, his attention is demanded elsewhere.... A five-man team is robbing high-end jewelry stores and wreaking havoc across the city.

Bennett finds himself being pulled in two different directions as the demands to quickly solve both puzzling cases fall on his shoulders. To add to his anxiety...someone claiming to be the biological father of one of Bennett's adopted daughters, is trying to take her away from him. With all this chaos going on, his longtime nanny and "significant other" Mary Catherine, has to leave the country to handle a family emergency of her own.

This journey will have readers wondering....will Michael Bennett be able to solve one of the most horrific cases of his career? Uncover the underlining motive behind a string of seemingly random diamond heist. Squash a silly twenty-year old rivalry, and save his career. Keep his daughter from the clutches of a father with ulterior motives. Finally profess his undying love to Mary Catherine, or will the pressures prove to be even too much for the infamous Detective Michael Bennett to handle?

Burn may start with a not-so engaging beginning, but ultimately the impact of this thriller heightens, and so will the reader's interest.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 his family nanny and part-time love interest, returns to Ireland 3 octobre 2014
Par TUCSON ROBERT - Publié sur Amazon.com

BURN, by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge is the seventh in a series starring NYPD Detective Michael Bennett. Bennett and his 12-member integrated family return to New York City following an extended period of protective isolation by the U. S. Marshal Service in the Los Angeles area. The Mexican drug cartel had threatened to kill Bennett and his family. His detective work and his testimony helped bring down the most corrupt cartel in Mexican history. Upon his return to the NYPD, he is assigned to head up an ombudsman outreach squad in Harlem composed of law enforcement misfits and uninspired NYPD detectives. At first he is unhappy about the assignment, even considers retiring, but finally decides to take on the job as a challenge. He soon has the unit shaped up and motivated when one of his female detectives turns up dead. The story unfolds with more unsolved murders along with a series of weird, high-end jewelry store heists, and a suspected hint of cannibalism along the way. In the midst of this turmoil, Bennett’s family problems multiply and Mary Catherin, his family nanny and part-time love interest, returns to Ireland. With this seemingly endless series of problems at work and at home, Bennett seems powerless and at a loss as to how to resolve them. The story becomes more interesting toward the end.
The novel’s short 100-plus chapters make for a quick and easy read. This is far from Patterson’s best, but worth the read. I give it an overall rating of 3.

This is the most disgusting book I've read of James Patterson. when you start writing about grilling people to eat, it's time to get a new subject. I may not ever get another book of James Patterson.
Oh, and it doesn't even deserve 1 star.
