Gripping action as detective Michael Bennett tries to deal with a mass kidnapping and Ransome. A simple concept with James Patterson:s dependable strong execution. If fast-paced thrillers are to your taste, you:d have trouble finding better. ( )

This author sure does have some great ideas about pulling off the perfect crime. Let's hope he sticks to books, or we're all in trouble. I love when I don't figure out the game plan before it happens. Great backstory with the family. I will continue this series. ( )

okay St Pat's takes celebrity hostages By inmate guards? Daring escape — everybody changes hearts

NYPD detective Michael Bennett is concentrating on getting his family through a particularly difficult Christmas: he and his 10 adopted children are facing the loss to cancer of his brave wife, Maeve. But a major crisis calls him away: the funeral of a former First Lady at St. Patrick's Cathedral goes horribly awry when men storm the church and take hundreds of attendees hostage. Michael is asked to try to reason with a sinister man named Jack. Jack releases all but the most famous people, and makes his demands: he wants several million dollars from each celebrity hostage, including the mayor, a popular comedic actor, a beloved talk show host, and a pop starlet. Once Jack starts killing, Michael realizes he's up against a truly diabolical foe.
