Tick Tock by James Patterson (Michael Bennett)

Tick Tock (Michael Bennett)I was recently sent some books from Hachette.  When I got to Tick Tock by James Patterson a huge smile went across my face.  I almost started jumping up and down to actually have this book over a month before it comes out.  Normally, I check out from the library, so I'm reading the books months after they come out.  My non reading hubby and teen thought I was crazy.  My teen still brings up how happy I was "over a book" LOLThis is the fourth Michael Bennett story from Patterson.  If you haven't read them yet, they are really good.  About an Irish cop in New York that is a family man.  He and his wife adopted a bunch of kids since they couldn't have children themselves.  

Tick Tock ~

NYC's #1 detective, Michael Bennett, has a huge problem--the Son of Sam, the Werewolf of Wisteria and the Mad Bomber are all back. The city has never been more terrified!

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

Tick--Michael Bennett is on the chase

The city calls on Detective Michael Bennett, pulling him away from a seaside retreat with his ten adopted children, his grandfather, and their beloved nanny, Mary Catherine. Not only does it tear apart their vacation, it leaves the entire family open to attack.

Tock--your time is up

Bennett enlists the help of a former colleague, FBI Agent Emily Parker. As his affection for Emily grows into something stronger, his relationship with Mary Catherine takes an unexpected turn. All too soon, another appalling crime leads Bennett to a shocking discovery that exposes the killer's pattern and the earth-shattering enormity of his plan. From the creator of the #1 New York detective series comes the most volatile and most explosive Michael Bennett novel ever.
Book was great.  Typical Patterson of course with short chapters that end in suspense.  A wonderful story line about a totally crazy serial killer.  I really enjoyed this one a lot.  Like I said, if you haven't read any of the Micael Bennett stories, pick up the first one.  The first couple are really touching.  I can't remember which one, but either the first or second or maybe both made me tear up a bit (which never happens to me!)
