NYPDNYPD Red is the elite, highly trained task force assigned to protect the rich, the famous, and the connected. And Detective Zach Jordan and his partner Kylie MacDonald-the woman who broke his heart at the police academy-are the best of the best, brilliant and tireless investigators who will stop at nothing to deliver justice.

Zach and Kylie’s New Year’s celebrations are cut short when they’re called to the home of billionaire businessman Hunter Alden, Jr. after he makes a grisly discovery in his townhouse garage. When Alden’s teenage son goes missing soon afterwards, and his father seems oddly reluctant to find him, Zach and Kylie find themselves in the middle of a chilling conspiracy that threatens everyone in its wake-especially their city’s most powerful citizens.

NYPD Red is a great book. One of the best I have ever read. It is full of suspense and action and mystery it just pulls you in and you don’t want to stop reading. It was great writing and seemed so realistic it felt like I was there the whole time. I would recommend this book to any readers who are into action, suspense, and mystery books. It was over all a great book I would read it again if I could.

NYPD RED ends — in a different way than one might suppose — with the promise of more stories (or at least one) and potential complications. Though the book is complete in itself, there are plenty of interesting characters who could carry this as a series for as long as Patterson and Karp will want it to go. If indeed that will be the case, I would like to see more installments sooner than later.

Characters shoot their way through an entertaining script right to a conclusion with a hole in it.

Although, there is never any mystery about who is doing the killing and why he’s selecting particular targets, a very clever plot element is revealed in the explosive conclusion. This book is highly recommended and hopefully is the only the first of many Patterson and Karp collaborations.
