In addition to the crime aspect of this book, there is some romance as well as trouble with the neighbors. This is one exciting book that doesn't let up on the suspense until the very end.
The killer is using bombs and also kills with his hands by the use of a knife. Investigation reveals that some of the victims have a common thread of attending a criminal justice class at a local college.
It turns out the killer is working for a wealthy individual that is seeking revenge on anyone that has hurt him. He ends up being arrested and kill's himself leaving the killer with one final job.
As Detective Bennett is involved in a final showdown wit the suspect, there is a twist that keeps the reader glued to his seat.
Another exciting book in the series by an outstanding writer that keeps his readers involved in the happenings of the story.
What Detective Michael Bennett had hoped for was a little r & r and perhaps exploring his growing feelings for Mary Katherine, he uncovered much more than he bargained for when a rash of bizarre crimes tear through the city, terrorizing everyone who lives there . So much for vacation...
When Michael is pulled away from the retreat to investigate the crimes, his family is left open for attack. Working the case with attractive colleague FBI Agent Emily Parker, Michael finds himself questioning what the future may hold. All the while the clock is ticking towards who is behind the odd murders that seem to be copy cats old famous crimes...
A couple of years ago when I started to embrace audio books - this series was one of my first audio experiences. I know this is a Patterson book and I know some people struggle with his books and in some cases I agree, Patterson does have some gory graphic books out there. This series is not one of them. I think it is the touch of author Michael Ledwidge that gives this series its likability for me.
This series is centered around a detective, Michael Bennett who had adopted with his wife, 10 children. As the series opens, Michael loses his wife to cancer and while adjusting to a life without her, maintaining a huge household, and maintaining a high-capacity job, I kind of fell in love with this family.
In this fourth in the series, I enjoyed the start of a possible relationship between Michael and Mary Katheryn and even the annoying presence of the attractive Emily.... tossed in for good measure. The story line of the kids is always interesting and the crimes are usually good and not too graphic.
I found in Tick Tock the gore level was raised - not a lot, but enough for me to notice. I could almost sense the shift from Ledwidge to Patterson. While I still enjoyed this audio, it was probably the one I have enjoyed the least out of the series.
Will I continue with the next one when it comes out? Absolutely... there is still more of this story to be told and I for one want to know what will happen.
Still, I was disappointed in the plot and thought the romantic elements detracted from the overall mystery/story and can't help but find it implausible that a man with 10 kids would be having romantic struggles. I mean, between his job and his 10 kids when would he have time???? I also thought this book wasn't anywhere near as good as the first one in the series.
Too, I would really like to hear more from/about his kids. The scenes with Mike interacting with the kids are where the story really shined for me, so I wish there'd been more of them. The kids are a series in themselves, I think.
One thing is for sure, Patterson knows his pop culture and uses it as his own special code or shorthand to advance his story or develop his characters. This can detract from the story, but I sort of like the references, maybe just not so many brand names thrown out so often.
I am glad I read it, but would tell anyone interested in reading Tick Tock to wait for the paperback edition or get it from the library. It's not so good that you need to rush out and snatch up a copy, though if you like Patterson overall, you'll enjoy the book.
