What Happened To The Bennett’s by Lisa Scottoline

Clear your calendar. Begin reading early in the day. Be prepared to read all day. Unbelievably compelling! Shocking. Characters so realistic. A story to propel you straight into it and beyond.

Kirkus calls this a high-octane thriller. I can’t agree more.

Scottoline has you right from the first sentence and you will not be able to pull away until the very last word!

The Bennett’s are just a normal family on their way home from their daughter’s field hockey game when their entire world spins on a dime. Mom, dad, teenage girl and teenage son. Out of the blue they discover their Mercedes is being tailgated. Someone is getting way too close for comfort. The next thing you know they have been run off the road and are being carjacked. At gun point! My heart is thumping in my chest just writing this. It’s that shocking.

Terrible things happen in the blink of an eye and we find one of the bad guys has escaped. But not before he’s killed the daughter and his accomplice. Yes, shocking. This happened at the very beginning.

And then the FBI come for what’s left of this torn apart family and the plot thickens. I have always been intrigued by the witness protection program. I know so little about it. So when the FBI strongly suggest this to the Bennett’s, I am all ears. You see, the bad people involved in the incident belong to a crime family and they are after the Bennett’s.

I won’t tell you anymore so as not to spoil it. It’s a runaway novel. It’s quite possibly the most compelling book I’ve ever read. You have to read this book.

Lisa Scottoline has written dozens of books, mostly thrillers. I had the pleasure of meeting her twenty some years ago when she first began writing. And look at her now!!

WHAT HAPPENED TO THE BENNETT’S is published by Putnam publishing, a division of Penguin Random House.
