Review: Worst Case by James Patterson and James Ledwidge (audiobook)

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 bestselling 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.

Received from the publisher for review.

This one gets two stars.  The incredibly distracting sound effects throughout distracted from the story although even the cast of excellent readers could not make the story tolerable enough to sit through the scant six hours required to finish this.  I had to abandon this midway through the first disc.  I'm sure this would be decent as a book, but as an audio it failed miserably.

☆☆☆ = Just Okay

Wow! I usually really enjoy anything by James Patterson. Definitely have to get this one in paperback instead of audio.

Thanks for the heads up.
