Book Review: Tic Tock --- OR MY FAVORITE Dean Kootz book of all time!!!!!

Tommy Phan is an American.

Ok Vietnamese-American, but he doesn’t like the distinction. His family escaped to America when he was a young boy and he has embraced everything that is American. Unfortunately he thinks that to embrace America he must turn his back on everything Vietnamese, including his family.

Things take a turn for the worse when Tuong (the name is Tommy mom) decides to eat cheeseburgers in a restaurant instead of going home to his mother’s com tay cam.

When he gets home a small white cloth doll is sitting on his door stoop. He brings it into the house…and that’s when things get really interesting.

Cars, boats and vans crash. Guns are fired. Detectives are sought, waitress’s are found. And a good time is had by all….except for the dead.

PS -- HATE the new cover, if you can find the original black you will be happy

You are so right about the cover. The doll is so creepily presented in the story.
