    The son of one of New York's wealthiest families is snatched off the street and held hostage. His parents can't save him, because this kidnapper isn't demanding money. Instead, he quizzes his prisoner on the price others pay for his life of luxury. In this exam, wrong answers are fatal. Detective Michael Bennett leads the investigation. With ten kids of his own, he can't begin to understand what could lead someone to target anyone's children.

    Not fit for purpose

    This is a tense gripping thriller that is neither tense nor thrilling and didn't manage to grip me whatsoever! It reads like a made-for-TV movie with..Show More »

    New York City's number-one detective, Michael Bennett, has a huge problem: someone is recreating the crimes of infamous killers from New York's history. The city has never been more terrified.

    A rash of horrifying crimes tears through the city, throwing it into complete chaos and terrorising everyone living there. Immediately, it becomes clear that they are not the work of an amateur, but of a calculating, efficient, and deadly mastermind.

    Another great Michael Bennett installment

    The development of characters, especially finding out more about the Bennett family background, the reasoning of the killer, and the FBI agent.
