Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

Michael Bennett put Manuel Perrine behind bars, but now the vicious killer is out and determined to find and kill his detective nemesis. For the moment, Bennett and his ten adopted children are hidden away safely on a California farm, but Perrine knows a foolproof method to smoke him out: The crime kingpin begins a series of escalating assassinations, knowing that the lawman will be forced to leave his sanctuary to end the carnage. James Patterson as his suspenseful best.

Meet the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

Biography

James Patterson had been working as a very successful advertising copywriter when he decided to put his Masters degree in English to a somewhat different use. Inspired by bestselling hair-raising thrillers like The Day of the Jackal and The Exorcist, Patterson went to work on his first novel. Published in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number established him as a writer of tightly constructed mysteries that move forward with the velocity of a bullet. For his startling debut, Patterson was awarded the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel—an auspicious beginning to one of the most successful careers in publishing.

A string of gripping standalone mysteries followed, but it was the 1992 release of Along Came a Spider that elevated Patterson to superstar status. Introducing Alex Cross, a brilliant black police detective/forensic psychologist, the novel was the first installment in a series of bestselling thrillers that has proved to be a cash cow for the author and his publisher.

Examining Patterson's track record, it's obvious that he believes one good series deserves another…maybe even a third! In 2001, he debuted the Women's Murder Club with 1st to Die, a fast-paced thriller featuring four female crime fighters living in San Francisco—a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an assistant D.A., and a cub reporter. The successful series has continued with other numerically titled installments. Then, spinning off a set of characters from a previous novel (1998's When the Wind Blows), in 2005 he published Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. Featuring a "flock" of genetically engineered flying children, the novel was a huge hit, especially with teen readers, and spawned a series of vastly popular fantasy adventures.

In addition to continuing his bestselling literary franchises, Patterson has also found time to co-author thrillers with other writers—including Peter de Jonge, Andrew Gross, Maxine Paetro, and Howard Roughan—and has even ventured into romance (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, Sam's Letters to Jennifer) and children's literature (santaKid). Writing at an astonishing pace, this prolific author has turned himself into a one-man publishing juggernaut, fulfilling his clearly stated ambition to become "the king of the page-turners."

Good To Know

Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas was inspired by a diary his wife kept that tracked the development of their toddler son.

Two of Patterson's Alex Cross mysteries (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls) have been turned into films starring Morgan Freeman; in 2007, a weekly television series premiered, based on the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels.

    This doesn't read like James Patterson. With a good writer, you sail through the story watching a movie in your head. I'm stopping a few time per page because of an awkward word or phrase or an inappropriate quip.I'm a fan of the series, but I wouldn't recommend this book.

    Purchased but then could not open.

    All pages were blank. I was able to contact B&N support via live chat and I am told I will be refunded. Disappointed because I was looking forward to it on my upcoming vacation but at least B&N support was available to talk to.

    Patterson Is Awesome

    I've read the 1st 10 or so reviews & the 3 comments that are crapping on Patterson. If you have read several of his books you know what kind of writer he is (a great one) & how he writes. Why are you even complaining? Do you actually think someone is going to NOT READ IT because U say it was bad? NOPE!

    Am a fan of Michael Bennett and his family tribe and have enjoyed many in the series, however, I thought this one was poor and filled with gratuitous violence. I will think long and hard before buying another Patterson book.

    Captured chapter 1: a MLP fanfic

    It was a peacful night in Ponyville. The full moon lit up the empty streets with a beutiful silver glow, and not a pony stirred. Spike gazed out the window. He hadnt been able to fall asleep for some reason, though he was very tired. First he had helped Twilight re-shelve the library, then he helped Fluttershy. After that he had helped Dashie get Derpy to stay put and Pinkie blow up ballons for Lyras upcoming birthday party. Finally he helped Rarity by handing her supplies for her newest designs. He was so tired. But every time he shut his eyes, ghastly images of battle and blood flashed through his mind. Suddenly, he saw a shadow as black as a moonless night on the wall of an ally. Spike didnt think much of it. Suddely he coughed up a letter.' Probably from Celestia.' He thought, unrolling the scroll. But there were no words. Instead, a dark portal was revealed.

    Gone is the sixth book in the Michael Bennett series by American

    Gone is the sixth book in the Michael Bennett series by American author James Patterson and is, as the five before it, co-written by Michael Ledwidge. It is set some 8 months after the events of I, Michael Bennett, in which the Bennett family had to go into the Witness Protection scheme to hide from Mexican drug cartel boss, Manuel Perrine. Living on a farm in rural California is losing any attraction it may have had, and family members, Bennett himself included, are getting restless and perhaps careless. It seems that Perrine is becoming more audacious than ever, ordering hits on Mafia bosses, competing cartels and unco-operative colleagues, and not only FBI and State police, but also the Military are involved in the hunt for this megalomaniac narco-terrorist.  FBI Agent Emily Parker turns up begging Bennett’s input in the search for Perrine, and the family are left in the hands of US Marshals as Bennett heads to LA. There, a dramatic takedown fails to net Perrine. This instalment has plenty of action: shootings, toxic gas, attempted kidnapping, underground escape tunnels, ocean rendezvous, hitmen, and torture. There are several exciting climaxes. As usual, the villains are cardboard characters, and people who should know better do some dumb things that endanger loved ones. The most interesting character is an old pothead named McMurphy. The government of the day comes in for a bit of criticism. It must be a strain to remember the details of Bennett’s ten children: perhaps Ledwidge could write them down somewhere. Apparently, while Juliana has aged 5 years since the first book, poor Trent has only advanced two; Ricky was already 13 in the last book but is now “going to be thirteen”; readers could be forgiven for thinking that Ledwidge had forgotten all about Bridget, the twin of Fiona, who is mentioned only once by name, on the very last page, even though the other children all get plenty of mentions. Perhaps Ledwidge is just checking if the reader is paying attention? Apart from that, quite a page-turner.
