Patterson teams up with James
O. Born for another Michael Bennett mystery. Born has co-authored
previous Michael Bennett Bookshot, Manhunt,
as well as one of my favorite Bookshot series, Mitchum (Hidden
and Malicious). Born also has his own mystery series,
Haunted pickups where Bullseye left off.
Detective Bennett visits his son Brian at Riker’s Island.
Brian is being charged as an adult, which means he could serve
up to ten years. Even worse he refuses to give up his supplier.
The Bennett Clan isn’t taking it well. Shamus is heartbroken
and it affects his health. Bennett is ready to hunt down the
supplier, but he’s never worked in Narcotics andit’s
not the same as homicide. He’s going to need some help.
While Michael’s father Shamus seeks guidance from the
higher power, Michael seeks out a coworker and a homeless
girl. Meanwhile, the court’s verdict for Brian is guilty.
The action may be in New York, but the suspense is in Bangor.
The storyline starts out slow but the intensity grows once
the family arrives in Maine for a much-needed vacation. Quiet
walks in the woods and a fishing competition breaths life
back in the Bennett clan. Michael’s vacation is cut
short when the locals ask for his help concerning drug addiction
and escalated violence. Bangor Maine isn’t as quaint
as it used to be… Haunted is directed at the
woods and the activity therein. In the end, it's absolutely
brilliant how the authors bring the threads together.
Narrator Danny Mastrogiorgio pulls out all the stops on this
one. He’s has narrated three other titles in the series
– Gone, Burn, and Alert. Danny Mastrogiorgio
gives us a suspense-filled narration.
