I have another book from James Patterson for you today, this one from Gone. It is a fun, action-packed police thriller. I consume a lot of my books by listening to audiobooks, and most of them have a musical score at the beginning and end and the narration, and that’s it. But the James Patterson audiobooks also include some sound effects. The first time I listened to one, I just about fell off my bike at the gunshots! My teaser for Gone:

The problem was, the billionaire scumbag escaped custody and put a multimillion-dollar hit out on me and my family.

So there you have it. The feds put us in witness protection, and I’d gone from NYPD Blue to Little House on the Prairie in no time flat.

James Patterson, Gone

A CRIME LORD IS ON THE LOOSE-AND HE’S DECLARED WAR ON DETECTIVE MICHAEL BENNETT’S FAMILY.

Manuel Perrine doesn’t fear anyone or anything. A charismatic, ruthless strongman, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suits. Detective Michael Bennett is the only U.S. official ever to succeed in putting Perrine behind bars. But now Perrine is out-and vows to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him.

Bennett and his ten adopted children are living on a secluded California farm, guarded by the FBI’s witness protection program. Soon Perrine begins a campaign of assassinations, brazenly slaughtering powerful individuals across the country. The FBI has no clue where Perrine is hiding or how he is orchestrating his attacks. It is forced to ask Bennett to risk it all-his career, his family, his own life-to fight Perrine’s war on America.

With intensity, speed, and explosive action rivaling James Bond movies at their best-and featuring one of the most complex and chilling villains ever created-GONE is the newest astounding novel by James Patterson.

    This sounds like a great story. I very seldom read Patterson but should look for this one. My teaser this week comes from A Lady in the Smoke by Karen Odden. Happy reading!

  4. Duck and cover! LOL I like it when they add the sound affects. I’ve been reading his books for years. Don’t think I have this one.
