Details: no. 3 Mike Bennett Mystery

The son of one of New York's wealthiest families is snatched off the street and kidnapped. The kidnapper however is not demanding money. Instead he makes the boy take an exam; getting the answers wrong is punishable by death.
Michael Bennett, still balancing his high pressure job with taking care of his 10 children is joined by FBI agent Emily Parker, with whom he gets on really well right from the start.
But as more kidnappings follow and rich kids die, Mike and Emily have nothing to go on, and the kidnapper is working towards a devastating finale.
As always with Patterson this was an easy to read page turner. It wasn't a very good mystery though, and I never really got caught up in the story, partly because who the kidnapper is is clear from the start of the book. However, I like Mike, and will continue to read the books in this series, just to keep up with his family life.
