A good story, quick moving. Would like to hear more about the NYPD Red team.
Not quite as good as the Michael Bennett series
First time listening to the narrator, but would listen to other books they are narrating
I'm a voracious reader and love books with strong characters - men or women -- and now dogs. I live in Arizona.
I loved this book. I will listen again because it's read so well. The narraters are very good.
Their wonderful speaking voices. I knew exactly who was speaking at all times
No. I wanted to savor it in several, but I ended up listening to half of it on the first try.
This is the first book of NYPD RED and I can't wait for the release of the second one. The two narrators were superb in their depiction of the major characters. Though it is shorter than I am used to, this novel in non stop action. I highly recommend this audiobook.
The story is written as a made for TV drama. Shallow characters, predictable behaviors and a conclusion you could see a mile away. Certainly not the Patterson we had learned to love.
The super hero qualities of the duo, the ease of finding the primary suspect, the predictability of each scene.
I would have made a cheap movie out of it, and be done.
Skp this one.
Detectives Zach and Kiely are on the special task force, NYPD Red, a police force that protects all the big stars and Hollywood type events happening in New York City. With everybody enjoying a huge breakfast event, a big time producer collapses, dying of poisoning. This begins a spree of killings by a psychopathic couple who are seeing all of these events as a movie script playing out in their minds.
Zach and Kiely have a history as a couple, but now Kiely is married to someone in the movie crowd. Threats get too close to home, and their personal lives are at stake. These killers must be stopped before they make a grand finale for their psycho imaginary movie.
This is your typical Patterson mystery/thriller, and he doesn't fail to come through this time either. Adding the Hollywood events and New York City atmosphere makes this book especially interesting. The relationship of the Zach and Kiely characters adds just the right amount of human interest within a fast passed chase to stop the killers. Another good Patterson book!!
I don’t understand. Is Patterson actually co-authoring these new books or are these co- authors just using his name and reputation in order to sell their books? Does anyone know?
Although this book had twists and turns it was unrealistic.
The villain has written a script full of murders and is carrying them out in real life. Then he tells his girlfriend how well his “plot” is turning out. The main character is narcissistic but also underwhelming. The people who are his targets do not come across as very smart and are also very unbelievable because none of them leave NY for LA when it is evident that they are all the targets for this murderer.
The detectives have the usual sexual tensions between them… blah, blah, blah…
I can’t even say that this book is “just okay” because I hated the ending. I would not recommend it.
I enjoyed previous Patterson novels and will listen to future attempts.
Probably listen to crime thrillers next.
Narrator was OK, no major complaints.
Title was best feature of this novel.
No additional comments.
kept my interest; I listen while doing outdoor work or housework; actually get more done when the story holds my interest.
Gripping, exciting, edgy.
This book had me sitting on the edge of me seat from start to finish. The characters were developed very well and the story had a good combination of thriller and anticipation. Great book!
