Worst Case by James Patterson

I love two of James Patterson's series - the one about Alex Cross and this one about Michael Bennett.  Detective Michael Bennett is the single father of 10 kids.  Lucky for him, he has his grandfather Seamus and his "nanny" Mary Catherine to help him raise his kids while he is out saving New York from awful criminals.

In Worst Case, a killer starts kidnapping children of rich and powerful people.  Instead of asking for a ransom like most killers do though, he quizzes his prisoners to see if they are good people.  Wrong answers will cost them their lives!  This book brings in a fun character in Emily Parker, an FBI agent sent in to assist Michael Bennett in solving the case.

I read this book right after I read Toys, and I was just as drawn into this story line as I was that one.  I had to know if the kids were ever going to be saved, if they were going to catch the killer, etc.  I really loved this book, and I can't wait for the next book starring Michael Bennett to be released!

Love James Patterson (but only when he doesn't co-write).
