Can Michael Bennett catch him? I found in Tick Tock the gore level was raised - not a lot, but enough for me to notice. There was a nice mix of a really good psycho, and the family vacation of Michael Bennett. But then again, maybe the authors were going for some extra tension, which is created by the shifts in points of view. Not only does it tear apart their vacation, it leaves the entire family open to attack. A modern-day hero, for sure.
