Haunted – Michael Bennett Book 10 – James Patterson: Detective Michael Bennett and his family are prepared to escape New York for a holiday in Maine-but a shocking scene deep into the woods reveals a dark world of drugs and murder.
HAUNTED, the newly published installment in James Patterson’s popular and long-running Michael Bennett series, is a benchmark for the canon in a couple of ways. Perhaps the important one is that the show welcomes James O. Born as its co-writer. Born is a remarkable writer who has been critically acclaimed for his co-authoring stint with Lou Dobbs on two novels, as well as several police procedural thrillers and some of dystopian science-fiction works under a pseudonym. His considerable chops and skill set — not to mention his own past employment in law enforcement — bring new life into the series and to HAUNTED, as a significant player is taken, at least temporarily, off the plank and into the side (that’s another standard ) since Michael Bennett and his large family of children face their greatest challenge yet.
Haunted by shame and guilt, Michael Bennett is residing with a father’s worst nightmare. Reeling from a catastrophe that would destroy lesser households, the Bennett escape New York to get a much-needed vacation. But it turns out the brochures do not tell the complete story; the seemingly perfect community includes a deadly vice.
When local cops discover a gruesome crime scene buried deep in the forests, they consult the vacationing Bennett, who jumps at the chance to atone for his own sins. But far from the city streets he knows so well, nobody will talk to the big-city detective, along with the bodies keep piling up.
A young and forgotten woman is the nearest thing Bennett has to a partner in his frantic hunt for its ghostlike perpetrator behind the violence. Can Bennett and his unlikely ally unmask the culprit before anyone else winds up haunted?
The Regional criminal overlord resents the presence of the Bennett and Sandy, and is not at all above doing what he believes he wants to do so as to keep the status quo. The quiet streets of Linewiler endure no external resemblance to the furtive alleys of the big city, but some things never change, especially when there are individuals who will cater to the worst instincts of their fellow human beings. Bennett finds he needs to set his personal problems aside and handle the scenario in Linewiler, which might reach New York too, no matter what he does or doesn’t do.
HAUNTED is book ended by changes “big ones” at Michael Bennett’s life. The book concludes on an unexpectedly upbeat note, which Undoubtedly will perform over future installments of this series. It Story’s parallel plot lines never quite intersect but are nevertheless Related at a most unfortunate manner. The end result, however, is that I Will be there as a reader, regardless of where Patterson and Born take This intriguing series.
