Detective Michael Bennett and his family are about to be haunted... by a father's worst nightmare-the signs he should have seen and a son's desperate cry for help. Reeling from a crisis that would destroy lesser families, the Bennetts escape New York for a much-needed vacation. An idyllic country town in the Maine woods is haunted... by an epidemic emptying its streets and preying on its youth. Turns out the vacation brochures don't tell the full story-the seemingly perfect community has a deadly vice. When local cops uncover a grisly crime scene buried deep in the woods, they consult the vacationing Bennett, who jumps at the chance to atone for his own sins. You can take Michael Bennett out of New York City, but you can't take the cop out of Michael Bennett. But far from the city streets he knows so well, no one will talk to the big-city detective, and the bodies keep piling up. A young, hardscrabble, and forgotten girl is haunted... by a traumatic history. Homeless and destitute, she represents the closest thing Bennett has to a partner in his frantic hunt for the ghostlike perpetrator behind the violence. Will Bennett and his unlikely ally unmask the culprit before anyone else winds up haunted'

This was my first Michael Bennett novel and it was good enough for me to be interested in the series. I sort of feel that I should start from the beginning to get the whole back story of Bennett but I got enough characteristics in 'Haunted' to know I like him as a protagonist.
The story starts out with its focus on Bennett's son, but steers off in another direction after about a third way through, which kind of seemed pointless and some what unfinished. Maybe this continues in future stories?
It wasn't the best Patterson book I've read but I will certainly be delving back into Michael Bennett's world when I'm done plowing the Robert Langdon series.
*Side-note* There's nothing 'haunting' about this book, no ghosts, no ghouls, no scares at all.

Was an 'ok' book. Fast easy read. Not Patterson's best but filled in a wet weekend for me.

Story line started interesting and then went off the track into a different story line mid-way with a lot of pointless side line stories. Read more like an incoherent diary.

I'm a huge James Patterson fan but have to say, not his best work. The title and preview was misleading 're anything haunted. A good book to just pass the time but nothing that's gonna really get your heart racing like typical James Patterson.

I love Patterson's writing and also the Bennett storylines. This book was okay but lacked action.

Enjoyed visiting with the Bennett family again. Just enough action to keep the blood pumping.

Very light and enjoyable - had just finished another book that was much deeper - was fun to read something that uses less brain cells!

This book was a fast read offering very little of an original nature. The intent, I believe, was to show the family coping with the older son's drug trial and its aftermath, and to move the family story along to its next major change. I will keep reading in hopes that the next volume has a bit more content and that the characters are less formulaic than the ones found here (with the exveption of Sadie).

Usually like Patterson's books but this one is not my favorite. Like Michael Bennett series but this one was not as action packed as many of his earlier books. A fast read!
