Book Review – Bullseye

by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge (Century) ISBN 978-1-78-089273-3

Michael Bennett returns in this action-packed story, this time to stop an assassination attempt on the US president.

Similar to most of the stories in the series, Mike showcases his incredible detective skills as, together with the NYPD, he goes on a hunt to not only prevent the assassination attempt, but to figure out exactly who is behind it. With many more characters than normal, I was confused as suspects kept changing and people were cleared. As he delves deeper, he discovers that a couple might actually be behind the assassination attempt.

There isn’t much movement in Bennett’s family drama, or further clarification in his on/off relationship with Mary Catherine. However the subplot line does offer some insight into the older children.

Although the ending felt rather abrupt, as if things weren’t wrapped up properly, it left me waiting eagerly for the next mission.

Bullseye is an overall good read for Michael Bennett fans.
