Michael Bennett and his eclectic family are back. The family is
made up of adopted children, a granddad and an Irish nanny (wannabe
wife). When a bomb is found in a library Michael is called away
from his family vacation. Throughout the mystery Michael is pulled
back and forth between his job and vacation. His family takes it
better than most, and the reason is because when he’s with
his kids, he’s actually interacting with them. There are multiple
murders with multiple MO’s -- things seem confusing, and maybe
that’s how the killer(s) want it. As danger magnifies, Michael
brings in FBI agent Emily Parker. They have a history…. (so
where does that leave the nanny?)
is a violent, twisting tale. Narrators Cannavale and Sowers
give it that extra spin-tingling effect.
I think I like
Tick Tock best of the series. When Step on a Crack
debuted, I remember people panning Michael Bennett and his
eclectic family. In the first title Michael had what I call hero-charisma.
Everyone loves a hero. To see the series expand and the characters
grow is very satisfying.
Ledwidge is author of The
the Devil Knows You’re Dead.
