Michael Bennett, the lead detective from James Patterson's recent Run For Your Life, is back in this equally fast-paced and absorbing thriller. In Worst Case, Michael Bennett faces another serial killer with a "larger message." While Bennett's last opponent, The Teacher, had sought to punish the rudeness of wealthy New Yorkers, this new killer targets the children of wealthy with a hidden message. As this new criminal holds New York City hostage, Michael Bennett works closely with a beautiful FBI counterpart and Abduction Specialist, Agent Emily Parker. NYC's large resources are at their disposal, but absent demands from the kidnapper/killer, can Bennett and Parker find a way to save innocent, young lives?

Worst Case brings back James Patterson's latest detective Michael Bennett and it doesn't disappoint. Michael Bennett is as witty, good humored and sharp as ever. The interaction between Bennett and Agent Emily Parker works well; they're effective partners with some underlying romantic tension. In Worst Case, Patterson delivers another satisfying, action-packed thriller. I look forward to the next installment in the Michael Bennett series.

Getting Stale

It seems lately all of James Patterson books are the same and predictable. As for the previous post how can you read a book one month before it comes out. I'm judging all last year's Patterson's books and the preview from Worst Case.

    expensive

    I agree with the other folks on this. I was gonig to but the series on the Nook but each book was 9.99. I went to the used bookstore and the the first two books of the series for 8.00. I love my Nook but some of the prices are a little unreasonable on older books

    Can't agree with majority of readers

    I do have to agree with Darth-Vader and Calebsmumma. The book was predictible and also boring. Does James Patterson and his co-authors write a book a month. Really seems like a book a week. I always looked foreward to a new Patterson book but this time I made up my mind that I won't buy anymore of his books. I said that after the last two books I bought but thought I would be proven wrong this time. The writing just hasn't been that good. Maybe I'm being too critical because I just finished an excellent author's book - The Girl Who Kicked The Hornet's Nest - by Steig Larsson.
