NYPD Red

by James Patterson, Marshall Karp

Little, Brown And Company | October 8, 2012 | Kobo Edition (eBook)

NYPD Red is rated 4 out of 5 by 1.
It's the start of Hollywood on Hudson, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. Every night, the red carpet rolls out for movie stars arriving at premieres in limos; the most exclusive restaurants close for private parties for wealthy producers and preeminent directors; and thousands of fans gather with the paparazzi, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most famous and beautiful faces in the world. With this many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert-and they can't afford to make a single mistake.
Then a world-renowned producer fatally collapses at his power breakfast, and top NYPD Red Detective Zach Jordan is the first one on the scene. Zach works with his beautiful new partner, Detective Kylie MacDonald-who also happens to be his ex-girlfriend-to discover who the murderer might be. But this is only the beginning: the most brutal, public, and horrifyingly spectacular crimes they've ever encountered are about to send all of New York into chaos, putting NYPD Red on the ropes.

Zach and Kylie know there's no way of telling what a killer this deranged will do next. With the whole world watching, they have to find a way to stop a psychopath who has scripted his finale down to the last explosive detail. With larger-than-life action, relentless speed, and white-knuckle twists, NYPD Red is the next mega-blockbuster from "The Man Who Can't Miss." (TIME)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A smart police thriller that will leave your pulse racing! James Patterson is at the top of his game with NYPD Red, a smart police thriller that had my pulse racing and my fingers churning through the pages until I reached the end. I honestly felt as if I were watching a movie unfold before my eyes, as the writing is so vivid! The plot is quick-paced and intriguing, with an antagonist, The Chameleon, who is perfectly psychotic and creepy, providing a fantastic chase of cat-and-mouse as Zach and Kylie race to stop him. I find that some books are so detailed on gruesome acts a killer carries out that I can scarcely read them; NYPD Red is not a book like that, but provides just enough detail to add to the suspense, while also appealing to a broad audience base. The dialogue is crisp, and the action expertly executed, and results in a thoroughly entertaining read. Every so often I just want to pick up a fun book, one that isn't going to make me think to much or leave me feeling deeply emotional, and NYPD Red certainly fits that fun description, a book that is written with skill and will provide you with a few hours of enjoyment. I strongly recommend this book for readers who enjoy a good thriller and who have enjoyed past books by James Patterson. 4 out of 5 stars.
