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 Indeed!

This is my favorite book series currently -- a real "page turner!" I kept telling myself just one more chapter right up until the very end. Worth the read.

Great book, Easy Listen, Perfect Narration

For me, James Patterson is a hit or miss author and this is (actually the series is) a definite hit. It is a bit racy in parts - he has a tendency at times to over describe sex and violence (in many of his books not just this one) - so I would not listen to it in the car while taking the kids to the pool or on the Bluetooth speakers at the beach while laying next to the white socked - sandal footed Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop. But for the rest of the world, even people like me who are not offended by such "gritty realism" but also don't particularly need it to find it a great story, this is not completely over the top X-rated. This is an easy book to listen to, no score cards required, even though it is actually 3 stories (crimes) wrapped into one book (talk about realism... no cop in the world EVER is working just one case...well... except Feds... but I meant real cops). And to put it into the excellence category Edoardo Ballerini narrates. Ballerini is a master at getting things "Just Right" in my opinion. He never goes over the top with character's voices and affect. There is enough variation and voice acting to make each character unique but never distracting. His NY-Brooklyn accents are perfect and in general, is exactly what I like for this type of book. Soft voiced but firm and clear, never gritty, over acted, or excessively done. In the end, this is the James Patterson I truly like with stories that are logical and seamless but do not require silent rooms and full devotion of attention to read and understand.
