A Michael Bennett Thriller

By James Patterson

In the latest thrilling novel in the globally bestselling series, Detective Michael Bennett must track down a serial killer who may be even closer than he thinks.

This is the sixteenth thrilling instalment in the globally bestselling Michael Bennett series.

How do you catch a killer who leaves no trace?

In New York City, a sniper dubbed ‘The Longshot Killer’ is taking out impossible targets. Nothing links the victims – except the brutal circumstances of their deaths.

Detective Michael Bennett quickly develops a profile of the killer. Great with a gun. Probably ex-military. A profile that his new partner, Rob Trilling, fits to a terrifying degree. With trilling taking ever more suspicious absences from duty, Bennett must find out the truth – before the Longshot Killer strikes again.
