Book Review: "Tick Tock" by James Patterson

Michael Bennett is a NYPD Detective.   He is called in off his vacation when someone starts re-creating the crimes of Son of Sam, the Brooklyn Vampire, and other serial killers. 

Michael is a widower with ten children, all adopted.  When he is called in on this case, he recruits FBI Agent Emily Parker to help.  Together, they try to stop the killers before they continue their spree... and it becomes more personal than Michal expected.

A very engaging, well-told story.  Again, I like the way Mr. Patterson integrates his characters with the story.  I related to Michael's character, probably because he is Irish Catholic.  His father, also a widower, is a priest..But I must admit that in this novel. I found the villains most intriguing. 

Content warnings include language and a few  violent crimes.
