Worst Case Cover

 

Staff Pick

Worst Case, third in the Michael Bennett series, is an intense read. Written with Michael Ledwidge, it bears the hallmark of James Patterson's tight plotting, plus two engaging and intelligent protagonists. The authors have created a warped do-gooder character, a man bent on finding those who are at fault for today's dismal social calamities and making them listen before it's too late. His method of delivering his message confounds and baffles NYPD Detective Mike Bennett and FBI profiler Emily Parker. Mike's 10 lovable kids, his quirky priest grandfather, and a romantic triangle add to the mix that makes this a very entertaining read.

Best case: survival

The son of one of New York's wealthiest families is snatched off the street and held hostage. His parents can't save him, because this kidnapper isn't demanding money. Instead, he quizzes his prisoner on the price others pay for his life of luxury. In this exam, wrong answers are fatal.

Worst case: death

Detective Michael Bennett leads the investigation. With ten kids of his own, he can't begin to understand what could lead someone to target anyone's children. As another student disappears, one powerful family after another uses their leverage and connections to turn the heat up on the mayor, the press--anyone who will listen--to stop this killer. Their reach extends all the way to the FBI, who send their top Abduction Specialist, Agent Emily Parker. Bennett's life--and love life--suddenly get even more complicated.

This case: Detective Michael Bennett is on it

Before Bennett has a chance to protest the FBI's intrusion on his case, the mastermind changes his routine. His plan leads up to the most devastating demonstration yet--one that could bring cataclysmic devastation to every inch of New York. From the shocking first page to the last exhilarating scene, Worst Case is a non-stop thriller from America's #1 storyteller (Forbes).

Synopsis:

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.

Synopsis:

From the authors of "The Quickie" comes their most action-packed series yet. When the children of many of New York's elite become murder victims, Detective Michael Bennett and FBI agent Emily Parker set out to capture a killer before he sends out a deadly message for the entire city to witness.
