Publisher's Summary

The richest of New York's rich gather at the Pierre's Cotillion Room to raise money for those less fortunate. The mayor - with Detectives Zach Jordan and Kylie MacDonald of the elite NYPD Red task force providing security - is on hand to applaud the Silver Bullet Foundation's new plan for public housing.

A fatal blast rocks the room, stirring up horrifying memories of 9/11. Is the explosion an act of terrorism - or a homicide?

A big-name female filmmaker is the next to die, in a desolate corner of New York City. Zach and Kylie investigate, and the intimate details of the director's life remind them of their own impossible situation - their personal relationship seems as unsolvable as the murders.

The crimes keep escalating, and the perpetrators may be among the A-list New Yorkers NYPD Red was formed to protect. Their insane pursuit of ever-greater pleasures, indulgences, and thrills could be the catalyst of destruction on an unthinkable scale. Zach and Kylie track a shadowy killer as he masterfully plays out his vendetta-and threatens to take down NYPD Red in the bargain.

Good book, good series Excellent Narrator!

I found this book to be exactly what I expected it to be from Patterson and Karp. This is a good solid series with all the requirements for a mystery novel.
This book has two major plots going on. One is the murder of a sex addicted woman in the film industry. The other is that of a bomber in NYC who is assumed to be a terrorist.
The publisher's summary sets up the book very well and I would not want to add anything else that might ruin this for anyone else. There are a few unexpected twists especially at the end with the terrorist case.
This book is certainly worth the credit.
Now Edoardo Ballerini is fantastic. I always look forward to listening to him and he did not disappoint.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Red Alert Could NOT stop listening

I have either read or listened to most of James Patterson books. I literally could not wait to start the audible up again. It just kept you on the edge with the multiple murders. The characters were just as good as Alex Cross and Michael Bennett I thought.

Best one! Could not stop til it was done.

If you could sum up Red Alert in three words, what would they be?

Entertaining and satisfying read.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Cheryl. Beautiful smart funny......

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

He makes the characters real and believable.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Your not as smart as you think you are.....

Any additional comments?

Can't wait for the next one!!!!

Missed, Zach Jordan and Kylie MacDonald!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, but first I would suggest Book 1 in the series.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot, the story, and Kylie's character.

What about Edoardo Ballerini’s performance did you like?

Edoardo, always delivers. If you havent heard anythng he's read then I suggest you do so. He certainly made this story pop! He's an importanat part of this series.

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

Not really, but I was in suspense.

So so Outing for Red

I CANNOT PUT MY FINGER ON IT, BUT THIS BOOK MISSED THE MARK. PERHAPS IT IS SHORT ON THE WITTY DIALOGUE, PERHAPS IT IS DUE TO THE THAILAND CONNECTION. WHATEVER IT IS, I CANNOT RECOMMEND IT.
