  • RAVES FOR TICK TOCK

  • "One of the more unforgettable and accessible thriller novels of recent note. Equal parts gore, charm, and alarm, it's a winner . . . It's the contrast between the professional and personal elements of Bennett's life that makes these books winners . . . Patterson creates some of the most frightening villains one is likely to find. This is particularly true in TICK TOCK." (BookReporter.com).

I think it's their best yet in this series, and I'm already waiting for Bennett's next adventure. I highly recommend this book." (Bkfaerie.blogspot.com).
