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.
A real page-turner! (if that's possible for an audio book!)
The storyline is fun for the most part. The facts and events are completely realistic. But a single NYPD detective being able to afford a full time nanny and vacations for his 10 kids seems completely unrealistic in this economy. But I find the copycating of famous murders and bombings fun and interesting. Overall I enjoyed this book and recomend it to anyone between the ages of 16 and 40.
Cut the filler
There is an interesting storyline built around the crime spree which could have been developed much more. Instead, we get 40% filler of a boring home-life romance with the nanny. There is interesting character development about the antagonist and his crime agenda, but (despite the misleading title) there is no actual suspense until the very last of the story.
Do people actually believe that a very attractive nanny can't wait to hop into bed with this Cassanova detective old enough to be her father?
