One by one, children of New York's wealthiest are taken hostage. But the criminal doesn't crave money or power--he only wants to ask the elite if they know the price others pay for their luxurious lifestyles. And, if they don't, he corrects their ignorance--by killing them.
To Detective Michael Bennett, it becomes clear that these murders are linked and must be part of a greater, more public demonstration. With the city thrown into chaos, he is forced to team up with FBI agent Emily Parker, and the two set out to capture the killer before he begins his most public lesson yet--a deadly message for the entire city to witness.
From the bestselling author who brought you the Alex Cross novels comes James Patterson's most action-packed series yet. With the heart-pounding suspense that only Patterson delivers, WORST CASE will leave you gasping for breath until the very end.

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 300 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
A trio of outstanding narrators brings out the best in one of James Patterson's less successful efforts. A serial killer is abducting children. Each time, he asks the child a series of questions--a wrong answer leads to the child's murder. It's no secret that the murderer is a disillusioned lawyer who thinks he can save the world by killing the children of the rich and powerful. Does this even sound believable? Detective Mike Bennett, who has adopted 10 children, is especially sensitive to the case. Bobby Cannavale gives him a deep, sandpapery voice that adds credibility to the search for the missing children. Bennett is aided by Special Agent Emily Parker, who is professionally portrayed by Orlagh Cassidy. John Glover handles a multiplicity of characters--all well done. The only negative is the story itself, especially its weak ending. A.L.H. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine
