( Read Epub ) õ Alert à This is not a test every New Yorker s worst nightmare is about to become a realityNew Yorkers aren t easily intimidated, but someone is doing their best to scare them, badly why After two inexplicable high tech attacks, the city that never sleeps is on edge Detective Michael Bennett, along with his old pal, the FBI s Emily Parker, have to catch the shadowy criminals who claim responsibility but they re as good at concealing their identities as they are at wreaking havocIn the wake of a shocking assassination, Bennett begins to suspect that these mysterious events are just the prelude to the biggest threat of all Soon he s racing against the clock, and against the most destructive enemy he s faced yet, to save his beloved city before everyone s worst nightmare becomes a reality The family of NYPD detective Michael Bennett his 10 adopted children, his Catholic priest grandfather Seamus and his off again, on again love, Irish nanny Mary Catherine take back seats to the action in this, the 8th in the series And I can t say I m terribly disappointed Yes, it s sort of fun to watch the kids grow up and since I m no spring chicken myself a bit difficult to see what the aging process is doing to the good Father But when it comes to the love interest, I ve grown a bit The family of NYPD detective Michael Bennett his 10 adopted children, his Catholic priest grandfather Seamus and his off again, on again love, Irish nanny Mary Catherine take back seats to the action in this, the 8th in the series And I can t say I m terribly disappointed Yes, it s sort of fun to watch the kids grow up and since I m no spring chicken myself a bit difficult to see what the aging process is doing to the good Father But when it comes to the love interest, I ve grown a bit weary for the love of Killarney, either make an honest woman out of her or send her packing to the Old Sod.In fact, that s where this one begins Michael and Mary Catherine are in her native Ireland so she can oversee the sale of family property When that deal goes awry, he leaves her to sort it out and heads back to work in New York City He s concerned about Seamus, who recently suffered a stroke that may left left him in the throes of dementia Before that can be determined with any certainty, however, an horrendous explosion rocks the city s subway Before that dust has settled, with all law enforcement on high alert, a high level government leader is assassinated triggering a level of anxiety the city hasn t felt since 9 11.Chapters alternate from Bennett s POV on the ongoing investigation and that of the two unknown to the cops bad guys behind all the murder and mayhem Clearly, the pair are hell bent on blowing the city to smithereens, but to me there was a bit of a comic element as well Every time they appeared, I was reminded of Mr Wint and Mr Kidd, the dangerous dudes from the cast of an otherwise unremarkable 1971 James Bond movie, Diamonds Are Forever At least oneact of mass destruction occurs fairly early on and the threat of another, even worse disaster prompts an unheard of evacuation of the City that Never Sleeps As the story progresses, I concluded that someone must have done some serious research to bring the whole thing together, on everything from weapon making to history of New York and that s a good thing And, it s always interesting to watch the police and FBI fight over turf and credit don t these two factions ever see eye to eye Ah well, at least Michael still gets on well with his old FBI friend, Emily Parker As the search begins to zero in on the culprits, some of their aha moments test the limits of believability, but the action never slows down and I read the whole thing in almost record time.There s a little family tension as the Irish college student Seamus found to take over in Mary Catherine s absence tries to get them all to safety during the evacuation The young man s obvious rapport with the youngsters and slick organizational skills surpassed only by Mary Catherine herself also made me wonder if he ll take over the job permanently if Michael and Mary Catherine ever do get hitched Another great addition to the series Number 8 A crisis in NY, requiring the services of Detective Michael Bennett to save the city while at the same time being tasked with trying to save his own family A little far fetched for me but still a fun, easy read You ve got to love Michael Bennett, with his 10 children and their Irish housekeeper Mary Catherine.Looking forward to the next3.5
