Tick Tock by James Patterson

Tick Tock by James Patterson

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.

This is another great novel by one of my favorite authors who never disappoints me. I love the Michael Bennett series. Tick Tock is an awesome easy read for anyone who likes a good mystery. I highly recommend this one.

Not making any bones about his bid for success, James Patterson once declared he wanted to be known as the king of the page-turners. While that may seem like a pretty grand ambition, Patterson is as worthy of that title as any author working today.

Hand of Fate by Lis Wiehl

Hand of Fate by Lis Wiehl

Outspoken radio talk show host Jim Fate dies tragically while on the air. Police evacuate downtown Portland, and the triple threat team begin piecing together what just happened.

This is a book you want to keep on reading. It was hard to put it down to get some sleep. .

As he is about to go on air, Controversial Radio talk show host Jim Fates life is cut short when he receives a padded envelope which contains poisonous gas. Was Jim Fate's death an act of terrorism or premeditated homicide? The Triple Threat Club friends, News journalist Cassidy, F.B.I. agent Nicole, and federal attorney Allison work together to get to the bottom of the crime.

The author grabbed my attention immediately with this novel. Hand of Fate is a great, fast-paced crime drama. It had me hooked from start to finish. A lot of action with lots of twists and turns and you can’t figure out who done it until the very end. I was very surprised by the killers identity and motive.

It is the perfect rainy day or beach read and I would recommend it to anyone who loves a good crime drama or thriller.

This book is the second one in this series but I did not read the first book in this series and it was easy for me to catch on.

The author did a wonderful job with this novel and I am looking forward to read some more of her work.
