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.
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!!
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!
I was always having to listen to more once I got to my destination. Would just sit in the car waiting for a good place to stop.
This story was an action-packed multidimensional love story. At times I wanted to root for the "bad couple."
Absolutely! I love all of his books. He is a great story teller.
No, I don't think I have
Several. There were parts that made me squeamish and others made me laugh out loud, and still other parts made me feel frustrated for the characters and maybe a little sorry for them.
Oh, I wish this was a longer book. It was exciting, fast paced and satisfying. Sometimes Patterson can be too bloody and graphic for me, but wanted to try it due to the reviews and was not disappointed.
it kept me on the edge of my seat, wondering what was going to happen next.
most memorable moment was the husbands feet being nailed to the floor.
life to the story
Excellent story line, captivating from the beginning to the end.
The characters were interesting and their depth grew as the story progressed.
I hope NY Red becomes an ongoing series.
AZ IT Guy
I Found the story to be so unbelievably bad that had to keep listening just to see how unbelievable it would become.
Make the story more believable.
That they would not have used the corny accents. maybe they were having a hard time keeping composed enough to read this book.
I don't know if any of the scene needed to be cut. They just needed to be less cheesy.
