    While BookShots can be a real gamble, it’s sure money when James Patterson and James O. Born team up and offer a new instalment to the Michael Bennett series. As is their annual tradition, the Bennetts are preparing for the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Eager to secure a decent spot, they leave before dawn and take in all the festivities along the streets of New York. When, during the middle of the parade, Detective Bennett notices a vehicl...

    4.5*My first take was that these little BookShots are great fixes to get a reader through to the next book. However, now that I have binged read the Mike B. books for the most part, the BookShots books on this series are nothing but the equivalent of dangling a chocolate Crunch bar in front me on a stressful day.I need more Michael Bennett books. The Mike B (Go Seahawks!) series is by far my favorite James Patterson co-authored series. In this sh...

    Michael Bennett and his entire family, except for Brian, are positioned on the streets of New York to watch the Thanksgiving Day Parade.What happens next is something that, sadly, we're seeing way too much of as "Breaking News". A truck plows through as many people as possible, killing several before coming to a stop. When he gets out of his truck, he yells, and then detonates a bomb.Michael takes it personally .....This is one of this author's s...

    I usually always enjoy the Michael Bennett series. I love reading about his huge family. This book just didn't hit home like the others. It didn't seem to end right, it was abrupt and kind of dull.

    This started out with a rocket start but slowly dribbled down to a dull, flat ending.

    James Patterson’s Michael Bennett series is one of my favourites of his. Along with the Women’s Murder Club they are by far the best co-written books that he releases. That said, I am a few books behind and reading Manhunt was my first experience of Michael Bennett being written by James O Born. The planning for the co-written stories intrigues me. I remember reading somewhere that Patterson comes up with the ideas and the co-author writes th...

    Novella involving Michael Bennett. Bennett takes his family to the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. As they are watching a van bursts into the parade and the terrorist jumps out then exploding a bomb in the back. Bennett spends the rest of the novella chasing down the suspect on an FBI Taskforce along with an observer from the Russian Embassy. Not bad for a short novella, keeping with my theory that many of Patterson’s book fit better into thi...

    I am a softy when it comes to reading a book when I have said many times that I am no longer interested in reading this particular genre. So it is with Patterson’s Michael Bennett books. And this wasn’t even a real book. It was something called a “book shot!” In other words, a short story. I do like reading about NYC, but, my instincts are to stop with the book shots...

    A decent story, but I'm just not a big fan of the Bookshots format, I guess. There's just not a lot of depth to them because of the short length, and they're pretty predictable. Still, it held my interest, though with many interruptions as I haven't had time to read much in the past few days. I probably would have enjoyed it more if I'd actually sat and read it in one "shot". :)

    Disappointing ending. I love the Michael Bennett and Family series. This one had a nice flow but such an abrupt non-ending.

    This is a very enjoyable read. Patterson is using his Bookshot format, and this one follows that format. Not my favorite but it is good if you want a quick read. In addition to Michael Bennett, I like Alex Cross and the Women's Murder Club. Some of my favorite reading. Bennett is engaged to Mary Elizabeth from Ireland (my favorite country) and 9 (nine) adopted children he and his first wife adopted before she was killed. Can't forget Grandpa, he'...

    The beginning of this book was exciting and I was looking forward to an action packed read. The book then wound down to an almost dribble of excitement by the end. When it's so short, it's hard to fathom why it didn't maintain the action throughout. Michael Bennett is always entertaining and his family and him being caught in a Thanksgiving Day Parade bomb plot should have been a no-brainer. I did enjoy parts of this book but found myself wonderi...

    This was the first Bookshots book that I had read. It is a very small paperback book written by James Patterson. These books are always under 150 pages and cost less than $5.00. This was a quick read about Michael Bennett who is a NYC policeman. He is the main character in many of James Patterson's books. He is the father of 10 children, he has a fiancé and his father is a priest. This book was about a terrorist attack during a Thanksgiving Day ...

    There had to be one quick and easy book in the group. A terrorist attack at the Thanksgiving Day parade? Right in front of Detective Micheal Bennett and his family? Let the book began. It’s fast paced and action but this one doesn’t compare to a lot of the others. It feels it was written quickly and the author was brain fried trying to complete it.

    A short story (and therefore a very quick read) featuring Michael Bennett. The beginning was very powerful and sadly, very topical. I liked the interaction between the characters too.

    Loved this book. I decided to add my review to this book with three other Patterson novels in a read-a-thon post on my blog, https://garabrandtreviews.wordpress.com/.

    A very enjoyable Bookshot—I’ve still not totally committed to this idea of shortened stories using characters from series that I’ve enjoyed quite a bit but this one did Michael Bennett and the NYPD justice. Character development matters and most book shots don’t allow much since they are so short. This one however did a fair job of building on Michael’s extended family and their unique lifestyle—plus, it was a great Thanksgiving theme...

    If you love Michael Bennett half as much as I do, you will enjoy this.And I loooooooove my Michael Bennett. It's the only James Patterson series I read in earnest. Everything else of his for me is a no go.that being said, it may be a little too soon to use the ripped from the headlines plot of terrorists using vehicles to mow down innocent civilians but it's the world in which we live, unfortunately.

    The Bennett clan embarks for their traditional viewing of the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade, settling in at their usual spot across from Rockefeller Plaza at 49th Street and Sixth Avenue. The parade’s just beginning; the Snoopy balloon’s passing by when a truck bypasses the barricade, mowing down parade participants and spectators. Then it explodes.Who’s behind the attack? Michael Bennett is determined to find the answer for the “holid...

    Another good read from James Patterson in his Bookshots format, so a fairly quick read.This one slots in to his Michael Bennett series.As it's a short story, there is hardly any room for family development (as there usually is in this series) so it's missing that aspect, but otherwise it's standard Michael Bennett.He's involved (with his family) in a terrorist truck attack on the Thanksgiving parade in New York and after the attack, the story tel...

    A fast-paced read! Michael Bennett and his big family have assembled at their usual parade viewing location, ready to enjoy the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade when a man drives through the garbage truck barricades and into the parade route before stepping out of his stolen truck and detonating an explosive device. Who is the guy and what was his MO? Mike joins forces with a Russian woman and the FBI in tracking the man down and stopping him befor...

    Michael Bennett and his family attend the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade, as is their custom, and are about a block away when a car bomb goes off. The perp escapes on foot, despite Bennett's attempts to apprehend him, and the rest of the book deals with the hunt for and apprehension of the terrorist.Since this was a one of Patterson's "Bookshots", it was a very quick read. I love the Michael Bennett series, but one reason for that is that Bennett's f...

    Didn't real care for Michael as a character. For a seasoned cop his narrative sounded quite childish. Michael is at the thanksgiving parade when a car runs into the crowd and a bomb goes of. Michael pursues the driver and man's to get a good look at his face. He's called in by the FBI to assist on the case and partner up with a liaison from Russia after learning the suspect may be Russian. They all around and find the suspect and learn he had bee...

    What I appreciate most about James Patterson’s books is that they are well written and well edited. I did enjoy the premise and the build up of this book very much; however, the book seemed to just quit, leaving me wanting resolution. I felt like when a certain number of words had been reached, the story just wrapped everything up quickly, leaving hanging questions, which I doubt will be answered in another book. I’d like to read more about t...

    When Detective Michael Bennett and his family are almost killed during a terror attack at the Macy’s Thanksgiving Parade his first reaction is to make sure his family is okay and his second reaction is to chase after the terrorist. The only problem? The terrorist gets the best of him and gets away. Bennett is asked to join the FBI team searching for the killer. The case takes him into the Russian community in New York and he soon realizes thing...
