Kurzbeschreibung

20. Januar 2011 Michael Bennett (Buch 4)

A bomb set in one of New York's busiest places is discovered before it explodes. But relief turns to terror when the police realise it is just a warning of greater devastation to come. The city calls on Detective Michael Bennett, pulling him away from a seaside vacation with his ten adopted children and their beloved nanny, Mary Catherine - leaving his entire family open to attack.

Bennett enlists the help of a former colleague, FBI Agent Emily Parker. His affection for Emily grows into attraction and then something stronger, and his relationship with Mary Catherine takes an unexpected turn. Another horrifying crime leads Bennett to a shocking discovery that exposes the killer's pattern - and the earth-shattering enormity of his plan.

Mehr über den Autor

James Patterson sagt von sich selbst: "Ich bin schnell. Ich bin ein Ja-Nein-Typ, ich hasse Vielleichts." Und er ist tatsächlich so schnell, dass er an mehreren Romanen gleichzeitig arbeitet und pro Jahr mitunter fünf Titel auf Platz 1 der Bestsellerlisten landet. Begonnen hat seine Karriere, als er mit 27 Jahren den "Edgar Allan Poe Award" für seinen ersten Roman "Die Toten wissen gar nichts" bekam. Seitdem arbeitet er pausenlos an den Thrillern der "Alex-Cross"-Reihe oder schreibt über Detektiv Lindsay Boxer und den "Women's Murder Club". Hinzu kommen weitere Romane sowie Sach- und Kinderbücher. Patterson hat Englische Literatur studiert und war einige Jahre Chef einer Werbeagentur. Heute lebt er mit seiner Familie in Palm Beach City, Florida.

Klappentext

NYC's number one detective, Michael Bennett, has a huge problem - someone is recreating the crimes of infamous killers from New York's history. The city has never been more terrified.

Tick - a killer's countdown begins, but...

A rash of horrifying crimes tears through the city, throwing it into complete chaos and terrorising 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 - can Michael Bennett catch him before...

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 first vacation since Michael's wife Maeve died - 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 number one New York detective series comes the most volatile and most explosive Michael Bennett novel ever.

3.0 von 5 Sternen war nicht mein Geschmack 3. Juli 2013
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
ich habe schon viele Bücher von James Patterson gelesen - aber das hat mir trotz guter Kritik überhauüt nicht gefallen. Der Schluss ist dann der krönende Abschluss. 1 seiner Kinder wird entführt, er wills retten und wird zusammen geschlagen morgens um 4 und auf einmal steht die gesamte Nachbarschaft da ...

Hier kann das Gleiche gesagt werden wie zu "Run for your life". Dennoch kann festgestellt werden, dass Patterson die Kunst des guten Plots sehr gut beherrscht.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A new case for Michael Bennett 7. Dezember 2011
Format:Taschenbuch
Detective Michael Bennett faces his third case and some exiting moments in his private life. The reader is automatically swept away by the fast pace of the story and up to some surprises in the course of events. As always James Patterson manages to tell a fascinating thriller without neglecting to paint an in-depth picture of his main characters. A must have for fans and those who aren't yet will soon be wanting to have more of this.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Another winner in the Michael Bennett series 4. Februar 2011
Von Bookreporter - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Over the past couple of years, I have found myself growing ever more intrigued with the concept behind James Patterson and Michael Ledwidge's Michael Bennett books.

For the uninitiated, Michael Bennett is a New York City police detective who is a widower and father of 10. His grandfather Seamus is a crusty customer who happens to be a Catholic priest, one whose soul is firmly planted in the spiritual world but who is very much able to offer practical advice for material and physical concerns as well. The day-to-day management of the household and the children is overseen by Mary Catherine, an Irish nanny (of course) who somehow manages to be working toward her degree even as she accomplishes the task of herding the Bennett children with great aplomb.

Over the course of the series (of which the newly published TICK TOCK is the fourth installment), Mary Catherine has managed to attract the not-unwelcome attentions of her employer, notwithstanding the fact that the guy is 1) a really slow mover, and 2) clueless in matters of affairs of the heart, even for a hapless male. This setup would be perfect for a lighthearted television drama about a dedicated cop balancing family and professional duties. But what would give it a hard TV-MA rating is the graphic violence. It's the contrast between the professional and personal elements of Bennett's life that makes these books winners.

I have been pounding the drum for a while now to alert readers that Patterson, either writing singly or in collaboration with another author, creates and presents some of the most frightening villains one is likely to find. This is particularly true in TICK TOCK. The novel begins with New York being rocked by a series of horrific murders, just as Bennett and his family settle in for what they hoped would be a restful and relaxing beachside vacation. That is not to be. Bennett continues to be called back to the city as new murders and developments take place. The only thing that seems to connect the crimes, at least initially, is a series of cryptic letters addressed to Bennett.

It takes Emily Parker to uncover a deeper and more troubling link that ties together the killings. Parker, an FBI agent who worked previously with Bennett and earned his respect (and some degree of personal attention as well), joins the investigation at his request, and her relentless pursuit of evidence slowly leads the team to the killer's front door, even as she proves to be a personal distraction for Bennett.

Meanwhile, on the home front, Bennett's children are being attacked and harassed by a young gang of local toughs who think that their parents' connections will protect them from retribution. The problem is they're correct. Even as Bennett tries to reason with the troublemakers, they continue to act with impunity. As Bennett and Parker grow ever closer to finding the killer, Bennett's personal and professional lives intersect in a deadly way that he could not have predicted, resulting in things never being the same for him again.

It's not necessary to have read the three prior Bennett books before sinking your teeth into this new one. Patterson and Ledwidge do a great job of filling in the brick and mortar missing for new readers, but regardless of your standing as a fan of the series or of Parker, TICK TOCK is one of the more unforgettable and accessible thriller novels of recent note. Equal parts gore, charm and alarm, it's a winner.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Another Lousy Thriller From Patterson or Ledwidge or Both 8. Februar 2011
Von Matthew Erwin - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
It is sort of impossible to tell what James Patterson writes anymore. With his "co-author" mill, Patterson is more of a brand than an author at this point from what I can tell. But the Patterson trademarks are there, tiny chapters, low word count and stilted prose.

Every time I swear off Patterson forever, one of his books is offered free. So it is with Tick Tock which had a free preorder several months ago. The setup is fairly typical, with a serial killer recreating the murders of famous NYC serial killers. You may remember this plot line from the film "Copycat" which was made nearly two decades ago.

Our hero is Michael Bennett, a single father with 10 adopted children. The children are of all races and genders, however none of them are real characters. Often they are just a list of names on a page. They may as well be called "older boy number 3" for as much as they are developed.

Running parallel to the serial killer portion of the book is a family drama which is painful to read. The only reason it is included is to pad the book out to novel length instead of a novella. It involves the vacationing Bennett family fighting with bullies. These young teenagers apparently are well versed in wordplay and racial slurs, not to mention the Rainbow Coalition, a group that hasn't been particularly relevant in their lifetime.

As usual, there is a speckling of awkwardly shoehorned in pop culture references that distract from the proceedings as well.

As for the thriller itself, it is fairly standard, featuring the predictable Patterson switch where a new character is introduced to throw you off. There is also the almost sadistic pleasure taken in describing the murders. Also a fairly lame love triangle between Bennett, a FBI agent and his live in nanny.

As a final insult, the final scene between Bennett and the serial killer ends in a truly silly manner. Overall it is just not a satisfying effort.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable read 29. Januar 2011
Von D. Baker - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
If you are a James Patterson fan, you will probably enjoy this book. It is at least as well written as his other jointly authored books.

Lots of actions, truly despicable criminals and a somewhat too positive portrayal of life with ten children. Although some quibble with a large family with no serious problems, I know many large families that are similar to his. Since Patterson views children as backdrops (read the Cross novels), it is not surprising that the children's characters are rather superficially drawn.

I enjoyed the book, read it in two days despite having a full time job.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Read the entire book and LOVED it! 27. Januar 2011
Von Chopper - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
Unlike other reviewers, my review is based on the entire book. I don't think it is fair to give a poor rating because you only got 28 short chapters to preview. A review should be based on the entire book. This is the first time I have read a James Patterson novel. I am hooked! Wow! The plot had so many wonderfully surprising twists, that it kept me wanting to read more and more! This author is in a different league than others that I have read. I am a new fan. Others have commented on the short two or three page chapters in this book. It was different, but I liked it because it read like a movie script. The chapter breaks were like the next act in the plot. I recommend this book if you want a good read.
