A crime lord has declared war on America. Only Detective Michael Bennett knows why.

Manuel Perrine doesn't fear anyone or anything. A charismatic and ruthless leader, Perrine slaughters rivals as effortlessly as he wears his trademark white linen suit. Detective Michael Bennett once managed to put Perrine behind bars, the only official in the US ever to accomplish that. But now Perrine is out, and he has sworn to find and kill Bennett and everyone dear to him.

Detective Bennett, along with his ten adopted children, their nanny, and his grandfather, are hidden safely on a rural California farm, with guards courtesy of the FBI's witness protection program. Perrine begins to embark on an escalating series of assassinations across the country, killings whose brazenness and audacity bring into question the possibility of safety and law in the US. The FBI has no choice but to ask Detective Bennett to risk it all in Perrine's war on America.

With explosive action and fierce villainy that rivals James Bond movies at their best, GONE is the next astounding novel by James Patterson.

  • Where's Harry When You Need Him?

    By Grippy Granny
    Not the best Michael Bennet. Silly ending. Some of it seems stolen right out of the pages of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch books - LAPD detectives, Mulholland Drive, tunnel rats, etc. Thought Harry was going to show up any minute and save the day.
  • Impressed

    By ma_wilson
    I liked this book, the story was well written, to the point, and not filled with a bunch of uneeded wording.
  • It really has Gone

    By Bmb6254
    Strong enough start, drags in the middle and then ends as if someone realized they had to wrap it up in twenty pages or less. All too rapid and unsatisfying an ending for a serious bad guy they spent a complete prior book building that ended in an unpublicized cliffhanger. So really two successive poor reads. Seems to have lost the fine edge that proved it could be both compelling and humorous in the prior books of the Michael Bennett series.

    This book was a total waste of my money. I finished it but was completely disappointed in it. I have disregarded some recent poor reviews of James Patterson's latest books, but I won't make that mistake again. Mr. Patterson, you should be embarrassed!
  • A page turner

    By Motidiva
    Riveting! Exciting! Interspersed with humor and wit that make it fun to read. Couldn't put it down.
  • Infantile

    By Bessie/Murray
    Dialogue was sophomoric plot simplistic efforts at humor weak . Pretext to get protagonist involved thin thin thin Patterson motivated by money outing his name on this drivel written by a nobody

  • Great book

  • Know when to quit

    By Megwal
    Fro one-half of the story this was one of the best books I'd read in a long time. Great read! Unfortunately the second-half was almost horrible.
  • Treacly, sardonic dialogue gets annoying

    By M1Rate
    Moves along at an expected pace. Very thin on substantive details, which makes the action 2-dimensional and occasionally unbelievable. As in: cannot be believed because of poor craftsmanship. The repeated, treacly cheeriness of the main characters started making me root for the wrong side. Almost satisfying. Not a hot mess. But not good, either.
