NYPD detective Michael Bennett faces the most deadly threat of his career in this latest adventure from Patterson and Ledwidge. In an attempt to arrest Manuel Perrine, the head of a brutal Mexican drug cartel, Bennett and his fellow NYPD brethren turn up at the college graduation of the elusive criminal's daughter. The plan goes awry and, though Perrine is apprehended, the cost in lives is high. Now, from inside prison, Perrine exerts his power to exact revenge against everyone responsible for his detention, especially Michael Bennett. Bobby Cannavale's deep, well-modulated voice is perfect for Bennett's first-person narration. He fully inhabits the character as well as the detective's supporting cast. Jay Snyder skillfully narrates chapters written in the third person, imbuing his reading with an intensity that provides a counterpoint to Cannavale's more formal, deliberate style. Both readers know how to handle action sequences and keep a story moving from one suspenseful set piece to the next. This audiobook is a satisfying addition to Patterson and Ledwidge's series that won't disappoint fans. A Little, Brown hardcover. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
