Worst Case | [James Patterson, Michael Ledwidge]

Worst Case

Publisher's Summary

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 best-selling 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.

    Reading has always been my guilty pleasure. I would take stacks of books from the library. Now I listen to Audible.

    "Very good thriller, but"

    I hate the 'social' context. James Patterson is better when he stays away from political plots.

    "Enjoyed"

    I am and always have been a fan of James Patterson. I enjoy Audiobooks for the mind amusement while the hands are doing the drudgery of household work! Very well written and spoken. This book kept me waiting for each new chapter. Very exciting.

    "A Bit Gruesome"

    I like mysteries but this one had too many gory details. The story was good and I liked the characters. My only problem besides the gore was thta the narrators did not change their voices for their different characters. Sometimes I coudln't tell if it was Emily, Mary Catherine, or Mike's boss. Confusing.....

    "Predicable, but good"

    The story is follows a very predicable trajectory, but is classic Patterson and thus enjoyable.

    "Good Listen"

    Although rather short, this book was a good listen. Loved the way the narrators portrayed the characters.
