Caught in the crossfire of a deadly standoff, Detective Michael Bennett must kill…or be killed.
Tensions between America and Russia are the highest they’ve been since the Cold War. As the countries’ Presidents travel to the United Nations to iron out their differences, a fashionable husband and wife team of lethal assassins prowls the streets of Manhattan hunting their prey–a professor hiding a scandalous secret. Their next target: the extremely popular President of the United States of America.
Pulled away from his family and pressed into service, Detective Michael Bennett must trace the source of a threat that could rip the country apart–and what he finds may turn the Cold War red hot once again. With allegiances constantly in doubt and no one above suspicion, only Bennett can step into the line of fire to save the President before the deadly kill shot hits its mark.
Bullseye by James Patterson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I liked this book. I listened to it via audiobook. I would recommend it to anyone who enjoys action crime with political twist and plots that take place in NYC.
The characters were easy to follow and somewhat predictable. There wasn’t as much room for imagination as a reader but the descriptions and use of language was candid and straightforward which complimented the NYC setting and law enforcement culture. Though there were different points of view presented, the plot was very linear, told with rigid structure, and was occasionally mechanical at times. The author James Patterson remained true to his typical talent for a strong, focused, plot-driven storyline which I did enjoy, in addition to the subplots which helped to add depth and color to the main story.
