Worst Case by James Patterson

I thought this book was okay but not one of the best books that James Patterson has written. The beginning and end were great but the middle just dragged on and on. The ending though, I will say, was pretty good and somewhat shocking. This is the story of Michael Bennett, a police officer in New York who already has enough on his plate with ten kids and a deceased wife. He gets a little help though from his nanny Mary Catherine, and his Grandfather/preacher, Seamus. But now things have gotten worse because there is a killer on the loose going after children of rich people with a lot of social power. Trying to make a point that this world is going to hell. While having the teens kidnapped he questions them about economic situations and poverty in foreign countries. This man is more hippie gone A.W.O.L. if you ask me. He's a very radical environmentalist. With the help of the FBI, Detective Bennett tracks the killer. I honestly think that this book was rather dull compared to some of his other books (some i consider to be a work of pure genius). Hopefully this next book that I'm reading by James Patterson, also staring Detective Michael Bennett, will be a bit better. I will let you guys know when I find out.
