Publisher's Summary

It’s the start of the Hollywood on Hudson film festival, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. There’s a red carpet premiere every night; the most exclusive restaurants are filled with wealthy producers and pre-eminent directors; and thousands of fans gather with the paparazzi, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most famous and beautiful faces in the world. With so many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert - and it can’t afford to make a single mistake.

Then a world-renowned producer fatally collapses at his power breakfast, and top NYPD Red Detective Zach Jordan is the first one on the scene. Zach works with his beautiful new partner, Detective Kylie MacDonald - who also happens to be his ex-girlfriend - to discover who the killer might be. But this is only the beginning: the most brutal, public, and horrifyingly spectacular crimes they’ve ever encountered are about to send all of New York into chaos, putting NYPD Red on the ropes.

Zach and Kylie know there’s no way of telling what a killer this deranged will do next. With the whole world watching, they have to find a way to stop a psychopath who has scripted his finale down to the last explosive detail.

Great suspense and romance

I have loved this book, stayed sometimes in my car at the garage to listen to the end of a chapter. The story enfolds step by step, but the suspense stays until the very end with many twists. Two parallel story: the crime and the private life of the detective. And the crime story is also told double: once by the criminal and once by the detective. The narrators are absolulety stunning, they both are brilliant to switch between the characters and add a lot to the interpretation of the story. Some parts I have listened to several times due to the funny and/or great narration. I highly recommend this book to everyone, its the best listen I have ever had!

I can hear the author now....... "Please make me into a movie!"

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

Formulaic
Captivating
Fun

What other book might you compare NYPD Red to, and why?

Can't think of a book to compare it to but feels like an 80's cop buddy movie!

What three words best describe Edoardo Ballerini and Jay Snyder ’s performance?

Concise
Enunciated
Dry

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

Moved....... No

Any additional comments?

The story is easy to listen to and the set pieces came along with a nice frequency to keep the interest going. Hard to feel for the key characters too much as they come across as a bit "TV" movie.

Great ending

I'm a big fan of James Patterson and have read most of his work (or listened to) and this for me wasn't one of his better ones. The story took quite a while to capture my interest and the characters didn't get their usual build up until a lot later in the story.
Having said that by a third of the way in I was in there, in the thick of it and there was enough of the usual and enough of the surprise to keep me hooked to the end.
Just a 4 star from me but well worth a listen

A really good place to start reading James Patters

By now you know what you are getting with a James Patterson thriller and this doesnt disapoint. A typically well written police detective, trys to solve a mystery...... Good strongly written characters, being the first in a new series we may have been subjected to a bit more characterisation than we see in the follow up but not to the detriment of the story. A really good place to start reading James Patterson.

if you like it action-packed this is for you

if you like constant explosion guns car chases this is a book for you. I must admit I got a little bit bored after a while of the main characters seem to be able to do anything. and unfortunately it was rather predictable. America back to the series at some point so it couldn't have been that bad.

fantastic.

loved the chemistry between Zack and Kylie, the story flows really well and if anything almost too well because I could just listen to the whole book without a break. nypd red is a great series I read the next 2 which are just as good. this series should make it to tv or even movies
