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.

    "Good book, bad audible"
    Would you try another book from James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge and/or the narrators?

    The book is great, however I didn't like the multiple readers for the story. It sounded like the female voice was recorded at a different time and dubed into the overall. Just stick to one reader, or at least record them all at the same time please

    "Really enjoyed."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Great addition to James Patterson's/Michael Ledgwig team Books. Like Michael Bennett and the story as well. Bobby Cannavale, John Glover and Orlagh Cassidy are terrific. Believable.


    What other book might you compare Worst Case to and why?

    Like Michael Bennett and his family.


    What about the narrators’s performance did you like?

    Bobby Cannavale, John Glover and Orlagh were really believable.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Bobby Cannavale will make a great MIchael Bennett to catch the really bad guy.

    "Very good thriller, but"

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