Audio book Review of Burn by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge read by Danny Mastrogiorgio
Burn by James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge
Read by Danny Mastrogiorgio
Detective Michael Bennett finally returns to New York City –and to the most unsettling, horrific case of his career.
At last, Detective Michael Bennett and his family are coming home to New York City. Thanks to Bennett, the ruthless crime lord whose vengeful mission forced the Bennett family into hiding has been brought down for good.
Back in the city that never sleeps, Bennett takes over a chaotic Outreach Squad in Harlem, where he receives an unusual call: a man claims to have seen a group of well-dressed men holding a bizarre party in a condemned building. With no clear crime or evidence, Bennett dismisses the report. But when a charred body is found in that very same building, he is forced to take the caller seriously – and is drawn into an underground criminal world of terrifying depravity.
My Take: The Michael Bennett Series by James Patterson is becoming my favorite series by him. It was nice to have the Bennett family back in New York. Bennett was kind of demoted by being given the Outreach Squad to lead. He gets them to finally care about what they are doing then he is given a promotion to work on the case of all the diamond heists that have been going on. I enjoyed the family drama that goes along with the this series. I did feel that the resolution to the one case was a bit anticlimatic.
Audio: I felt that the narrator wasn't all that great he really didn't have to much range other than reading the book and not showing any emotion. Kinda monotoned. . Not enough to keep me from listening to him again but still not that great.
This book is taken from my personal audible library.
