A South American crime lord has brought New York the worst lawlessness and violence the city has ever seen. Police shot in the street. Judges murdered in the courtroom. Mayhem is unleashed-and the mayor demands that Detective Michael Bennett find a way to stop it. Bennett decides to take his ten kids and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, out of the danger on a much-needed vacation to upstate New York. But instead of escaping the violence, they find themselves in the middle of another nightmare that threatens to rip their family apart. And the danger isn't only coming from the crime lord's thugs-Emily Parker is back, and Bennett's attraction to her endangers his new relationship with Mary Catherine. A no-holds-barred, pedal-to-the-floor, action-packed novel, I, Michael Bennett is James Patterson at his most thrilling best.
