Book Review: Worst Case by James Patterson & Michael Ledwidge

Library: Central Branch (BPL)
Genre: Suspense


In New York City, another crazy killer is targeting teenagers from wealthy families. Detective Michael Bennett and Emily Parker, an FBI abduction specialist search for the killer before time runs out.

The third in the Michael Bennett series, Worst Case was probably the best written. By this I mean that it was a more cohesive way of story telling and it seemed to move fluidly over the few days that it took place. I found that in the previous books, there was too much unnecessary information within the short chapters.

There was a lot less talk about his very unrealistic home situation (all those adopted children and young Nanny). Although I've had three books to let his home life to sink in, it doesn't make it any more believable. The chapters from the killers point of view were maybe a little less gripping than in the second and the ending was very disappointing. I did however enjoy the accurate depiction of New Yorkers as always in this series!
