I am really starting to enjoy reading James Patterson’s books. This one just like others I have read started with a great but confusing prologue that started to reveal itself by the first chapter. As the story unfolds the two detectives race to connect the dots and stay ahead of the killer but the problem was the victims didn’t make any sense. This killer was just psycho. There as a subtle love story included for lead detective Zack Jordan and the department shrink, not to mention his new partner is also his ex fling from the academy days. This book is filled with lots of thrills, action, drama, mystery and some subtle comedy. Overall it was great and I cant wait to read part 2. — Norman Lavelle
NYPD Red is a special task force charged with protecting the interests of Manhattan’s wealthiest and most powerful citizens. When a world-famous movie producer is poisoned on the first day of a Manhattan film festival called Hollywood on the Hudson, they are the first ones called. Then an actor is killed on the set of a film. And a Molotov cocktail explodes at a movie premiere.
Detective First Grade Zach Jordan and his new partner—and ex-girlfriend—Detective Kylie MacDonald are assigned to the case. The killer has every murder, every escape, planned down to the last detail—and he’s scripted an explosive finale that will bring New York and Hollywood to its knees. With larger-than-life action, relentless speed, and white-knuckle twists, NYPD RED is a mega-blockbuster from “The Man Who Can’t Miss.” (TIME)
