I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I like Mike's growth as a single dad. ( )

Worst Case is the 3rd novel in the Michael Bennett series and whilst the first 2 were good, I really feel like the series is getting into it's stride now that the character and his family/work background & ethic have been fully backgrounded.

This time around there's a unhinged kidnapper grabbing children of the wealthy off the streets and questioning them, when they fail his questions he executes them before telling police how to pick them up, only for the police to rush to the location to find a body, rather than the living child.

In addition to the investigation, a FBI agent is assigned to help Bennett/the NYPD with the case, an attractive FBI agent no less, which brings some tension into Bennett's life as he bonds with both his children's nanny Mary Catherine, as well as the fetching FBI agent.

A hard one to put down, looking forward to see where the series heads next (and where things go, if anywhere with the nanny!). ( )

good quick read mystery
North + South Pole — Parents as compasses when you lose them

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.

This is the third in the Michael Bennett series, but they read well as stand alone.

NYPD Detective Mike Bennett and his new partner FBI Special Agent Emily Parker are on the trail of Francis Mooney, a Manhattan trusts and estates lawyer with terminal lung cancer. Faced with his mortality, he realizes he has spent his life and career helping the rich pass along monetary possessions to children who have neither the intelligence nor maturity to use those possessions in a way that helps society at large.

Mooney has nothing to Lise, after all he days are numbered, so he begins kidnapping teenage children of the most wealthy and wasteful. He then puts the children through a test in which he asks them questions to test their social awareness. For example, he asks one teen what his childhood nanny's first and last name and what country she was from. When the teenager doesn't answer correctly, Mooney kills him. Apparently she wasn't important enough to remember her ethnic name. However, when Mooney kidnaps another teen who does answer her questions correctly, he lets her go unharmed. While this teen is wealthy and entitled, she has instead focused her young life on causes instead of shoes and purses. Mooney had expected to have to kill the teen as well and did not wear a mask over his face. He also left a fingerprint on the teen's forehead. Oops, will that be a problem?

From that fingerprint and the teen's description, Bennett and Parker are able to identify Mooney. By that time, Mooney has returned to his old high school where he has taken several male students hostage in an auditorium. Bennett and Parker respond, but Mooney is able to escape in a stolen taxicab with 2 male students as hostages. After leaving the school, Mooney also takes the teenage doorman from a nearby swanky hotel hostage as well. Mooney wires his hostages and himself with explosives so that any attempt to kill him would kill the hostages as well. 3 lives...

Mooney takes his hostages to the place he feels epitomizes all the greed and monetary obsession that troubles him: the New York Stock Exchange. The police have the Exchange surrounded and the Exchange's Chief of Security attempts to apprehend Mooney. Mooney's teenage doorman hostage happens to be the son of the Exchange's chief of security. Mooney gives him a choice; you can choose to shoot your own don or let me in, and rather than shoot his own son, the chief lets Mooney by.

Once inside, Mooney reveals that the fathers of each of the two student hostages from the high school are very wealthy. He demands that the fathers both come to the Exchange and swap places with their sons. Ultimate sacrifice any parent would make.

So who is going to die, by gun, explosives or both? ( )
