If you like the suspense, action and excitement of James Patterson's Alex Cross thrillers, then you'll love I, Michael Bennett.
A South American crime lord has inflicted on New York the worst lawlessness and violence the city has ever seen. Police are being shot in the streets and judges murdered in the courtroom, and the Mayor demands that Detective Michael Bennett finds a way to stop it.
During a much-needed break from his investigation, Bennett takes his ten children and their beautiful nanny, Mary Catherine, out of the chaos on a holiday to upstate New York. But instead of escaping the violence, it follows them and they find themselves in the middle of another nightmare that threatens the whole family.
One of the most successful thriller writers in history, this former ad man has sold more than 220 million books worldwide.
James has had more than 19 consecutive number one New York Times bestselling novels, and holds The New York Times record for most Hardback Fiction bestselling titles by a single author, which is also a Guinness World Record.
His Women's Murder Club series was adapted into a TV series starring Angie Harmon (from Law & Order), while two of his books featuring Detective Alex Cross (Kiss The Girls and Along Came A Spider) were made into movies starring Morgan Freeman.
James also writes the Detective Michael Bennett novels (for instance, Tick Tock, Step On A Crack and Worst Case), which are about a New York City cop.
James has produced three young adult fiction series – Maximum Ride, Daniel X and Witch & Wizard – that have a tremendous following amongst teens and adults alike. He is a two-time Children's Choice Book Award ‘Author Of The Year’ nominee, a designation decided on by more than 15,000 children and teenage readers.
In January 2010, The New York Times Magazine featured James on its cover and hailed him as having "transformed book publishing." Time magazine named him "The man who can't miss."
His novels have won many awards, including the Edgar, the BCA Mystery Guild's Thriller of the Year, the International Thriller of the Year award, and the Reader's Digest Reader's Choice Award.
One of Forbes magazine's Celebrity 100, James made a guest appearance on popular TV show The Simpsons in 2007.
