Publisher's Summary

When NYPD Red arrives at a crime scene, everyone takes notice. Known as the protectors of the rich, famous, and connected, NYPD Red is the elite task force called in only for New York City's most high-profile crimes. And Detective Zach Jordan is the best of the best, a brilliant and relentless pursuer of justice. He puts professionalism above all, ignoring his feelings for his partner, Detective Kylie MacDonald, the woman who broke his heart when they first met in the academy.

But even with their top-notch training, Zach and Kylie aren't prepared for what they see when they're called to a crime scene in the heart of Central Park. They arrive to find a carousel spinning round and round, its painted horses grinning eerily in the early morning dark. There is only one rider: A brutally slaughtered woman, her body tied up and dressed in a Hazmat suit, on display for the world to see.

The victim, a woman of vast wealth and even greater connections, is the fourth in a string of shocking murders that have hit the city. As the public pressure mounts, and political and personal secrets of the highest order hang in the balance, Zach and Kylie must find out what's really behind the murderer's rampage. But Kylie has been acting strange recently - and Zach knows whatever she's hiding could threaten the biggest case of their careers.

NYPD Red 2 is the next outstanding novel in James Patterson's newest series, a thriller that careens through New York City and deep into the psyche of a depraved killer you've never seen before.

    Story
    "When I want to watch TV..."
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    First, if Edoardo Ballerini narrated the whole thing. Second, if the plot were not so cookie-cutter, with simplistic characters like brave cop Zach and stunningly beautiful and of course fabulously intelligent Kylie McDonald. Also, if Mr. Patterson would step aside (which he may already have done) and let a younger writer with new ideas do the heavy lifting.


    What was most disappointing about James Patterson and Marshall Karp ’s story?

    Just about everything, as above. I think Mr. Patterson is on the downhill slide of his truly amazing career, and I am betting that he is a mighty fat cash cow for his publishers, agents, etc. who are thus pressuring him to push out a book a year. Is everybody happy? Uh, not me. Even as a "beach read," this book has little other than Mr. Ballerini to recommend it.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Mr. Ballerini only adds. He never subtracts. This, IMHO, is a dumb question.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Again, I love Mr. Ballerini narrating almost everything except the historical novels about Venice, and so forth. I am just not a history buff. But you give him a good story to read, and he magically transforms it into a great book.


    Any additional comments?

    There still could be good books coming out of this setup. The sexuakl energy between Zach and Kylie is enjoyable. New York is an endlessly fascinating city (no, really). Murder mysteries are fun to read, at least the good ones are. Keep trying, Mr. Patterson, Maybe you should work for two years on a book rather than one, in spite of the intense financial pressures on you. Be brave. You're already a gazillionaire.

    "Way below par for Patterson."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not any Patterson fans.


    Would you ever listen to anything by James Patterson and Marshall Karp again?

    Since I have read most of his books I would give him (James Patterson) another chance but not by Marshall Karp as the co-author.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator could not improve upon a bad story. It seemed to be all about who was sleeping with who rather than a crime story. It was like the crime theme was an afterthought.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Very disappointed.


    Any additional comments?

    It seemed like this book was not written by James Patterson but rather by the co-author, Marshall Karp. I will not get another book by Patterson that has a co-author.

    Story
    "A good second book... Look forward to more."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would definitely recommend this book. It is somewhat of a short read but kept my attention.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I wasn't necessarily in the edge of my seat after I had figured out the ending before it happened. The only reason I didn't give it five stars. Not going to be a classic or anything like that. Just some good tension.


    What does Edoardo Ballerini and Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I definitely enjoyed the two performers.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    That would be a spoiler.

    "Red hot story"
    Where does NYPD Red 2 rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Definitely one of the better ones.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There were a number of surprising plot twists but not farfetched. The surprises totally fit in with the story and seemed plausible.


    What does Edoardo Ballerini and Jay Snyder bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I liked the voice characterizations which helped define the personalities just a little bit more.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions


    Any additional comments?

    I really enjoyed the plot development and the ending which was neatly tied up without seeming contrived. However, I really disliked the fact that yet another woman is the victim.
