Kristy McCormick Apparently James Patterson has eight books scheduled for release in 2010! This is one of them and Worst Case, co-authored with Michael Ledwidge, is a good read for all Patterson fans out there. It is typical Patterson with short sharp chapters, large font and a pace that keeps you reading and reading until […]
