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 takes his ten kids and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, out of the chaos on a much-needed vacation to upstate New York. But instead of escaping the violence, it follows them and they find themselves in the middle of another nightmare that threatens the entire family.

The danger isn't only coming from the crime lord's killers - FBI Agent Emily Parker is back, and Bennett's attraction to her endangers his relationship with Mary Catherine.

    I, Michael Bennett is the 5th novel in the Michael Bennett series by James Patterson and is co-written with Michael Ledwidge. Michael Bennett, Pattersons Irish New York cop with ten kids, a grandfather priest and a nanny, loses an old friend when the takedown of a Mexican drug cartel boss doesnt go quite as planned. A year on, the trial is marked by the murder of a judge, intimidation of witnesses, murder of cops, a dramatic courtroom escape and an even more dramatic apprehension attempt. As well as the usual banter with the kids and Uncle Seamus, there is a little sexual tension with Mary Catherine and with federal prosecutor, Tara McLellan, plenty of gunplay, assassins galore, a forest fire, drug smuggling, slavery, and corrupt police and officials. Bennetts family vacation at an isolated lake cabin whilst under threat from the drug cartel boss seems a little nave, but generally the novel, with Pattersons trademark short chapters, is fast moving: an easy read with a cliff-hanger ending.
