You really should be reading the Michael Bennett series by James Bennett wears several hats: he’s an NYPD detective who is a part of the significant Crimes unit, a widower, and also the father of 10 children. He is assisted at the joys and duties of the latter by his uncle Seamus (who’s also a Roman Catholic priest) and Mary Catherine, the household’s indispensable grandma and Bennett’s on-again, off-again intimate interest. It’s a mix that shouldn’t work, but it will. If somebody is casting about for a TV set, they ought to be looking here, since there is an almost perfect balance between quite tough and household tender in these pages. As soon as you start the series, it’s impossible to pass up as it progresses.
BURN is the latest installment from the series and by far the very best to date. The book finds out the Bennett household, after being in a somewhat de facto witness protection scenario in southern California, returned with their own cherished digs in New York.
As if Bennett did not have enough on his plate, one of his kids Is suddenly at risk of being removed from his family. Bennett is as competent a man as one is likely to encounter, but the primary question posed here is: Would he keep his job and family intact? It’ll take you until nearly the close of the book to discover, however you’ll love every paragraph of this narrative while you’re doing this.
The Main element of this show is Bennett’s first person Narrative, which provides a peek into his spirit, his heart. You will like what you see. He is a hard man when he needs to be, but it is not his default setting. There are points in the narrative at which you might wonder how Bennett keeps his sanity together with all that’s going on, but you soon realize he does it the exact same way that someone would eat an elephant: a snack at a time. Furthermore, Patterson and Ledwidge infuse a subtle allure to the show that offsets the often gritty nature of the offenses that Bennett is tasked with resolving.
Favorites of the Patterson-authored series, and it will do the same for You in the event that you try it out.
