Step on a Crack (Michael Bennett #1)

by James Patterson

The scene is set for a huge funeral in St Patrick’s Cathedral in New York. The rich and the famous from all over America and beyond have arrived to honour a former First Lady after her sudden, unexpected death.

Then follows an attack that was three years in the planning. Hostages are taken, the ex-President among them, ransoms demanded, a couple of hostages shot to show the kidnappers mean business.

It’s all brilliantly and chillingly co-ordinated, and Michael Bennett, the detective in charge of the case, knows it will be his biggest ever challenge.

A powerful and political thriller from the master of the genre.

‘Ticks like a time bomb – full of threat and terror’ Los Angeles Times
