New York City is experiencing a wave of terror-inducing crimes reminiscent of some of the most prolific in its past. Detective Michael Bennett is on a beach vacation with his family at nearby Breezy Point. As always, the call of duty does not respect his personal life and he is forced to spend much of his vacation working this high-profile case.
"Tick Tock" is the fourth book in the Michael Bennett series written by Patterson and Ledwidge. As with previous installments, this is a fast-paced crime thriller with a good dose of suspenseful twists and turns. This book also places significant focus on potential love interests for Detective Bennett. His relationship with his nanny, Mary Catherine, has been heating up. FBI agent Emily Parker re-enters the scene to help on the case with the romantic evolution of their relationship all but inevitable.
In my opinion, if you like James Patterson books, this is a very good one. If you don't care for his previous works, however, this one is based on a similar formula. As these types of crime fiction novels are right up my alley, I really enjoyed this book and found it hard to put down.
