A serial mad man is terrorizing New York City. Michael Bennett is called in from his family vacation to track down the madman. In the fourth outing in the Michael Bennett series, James Patterson again has a character that I love to read. I enjoy Bennett’s familly relationships. I also like the fact that Bennett has his own flaws. The characters are well developed throughout this book. The story keeps a brisk pace that hardly gives you room to breath as you read through it.

If I had one problem with the book it’s that Mr. Patterson seemed to break one of the rules of writing thrillers/mysteries, and that was don’t trick the reader, and there was one event in this book where I indeed felt like I’d been tricked. I won’t go into details, so I don’t spoil it, but I figure you might feel the same when you read it.

That being said, it didn’t ruin my enjoyment of the story. I still liked the book, and the climax, was what I expected, but I would have liked to have seen it go on a little longer.

There was some strong language, so definitely for older teens and adults. All being told, if you like James Patterson, then I’d pick up Tick Tock. But Hurry. Times Wasting.
