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.
My Thoughts: Let me start my review with saying I know terrorism is a popular topic to write about but enough is enough already! This was not my favorite James Patterson. I think part of the problem was I have only read one in the Michael Bennett series and didn't really know the characters. I am willing to try again with this one once I catch up but until then...I am sad to say I didn't like this one.
My Grade: C
