NYPD Red by James Patterson and Marshall Karp
NYPD Red brings together two of the biggest draws in the civilized world, New York City and the Hollywood elite. Beginning with the opening of Hollywood on the Hudson, a weeklong seduction of Hollywood moguls to consider New York as a setting for future productions, Patterson and Karp weave an action packed tale.
“The Chameleon” has set out to attack the Hollywood bigwigs, bringing them to their knees and driving them away from New York. He has scripted a movie and begins to bring it to life while being pursued by the NYPD Red contingent of the NY police force. This group of top cops was created after 9/11 to handle high profile crimes with high profile defined as crimes against the movers and shakers who operate in the city. Officially they are the High Profile Victims Response Team and Zach Jordan is one of the seventy-five officers assigned to the team. While his partner is on the DL he is joined by former girlfriend Kylie MacDonald in working the case of the flashy serial killer who is making headlines.
Using the backdrop of NY and locations that are probably familiar to most people Jordan and MacDonald track the killer as he brings his script to life, literally. With a cast of characters that include Hollywood moguls and movie stars, a sexy police psychologist, and MacDonald’s husband who also happens to be part of the in crowd NYPD Red is a page turner. With some sexual tension, more action and excitement, and a lot of over the top adventures the story unfolds at a quick pace.
By no means is this book a literary wonder, but it is a lively, action packed police story that held my attention. I also found it interesting enough to have picked up the next adventure NYPD Red 2.

A quick read...Typical James Paterson ....Good but not his best. Characters were fun and we kept wondering when the two cops heroes would hop in the sack. It was a nice touch when the bad guy attacked Kylie's hubby... There's not a lot of thought provoking ideas and philosophy, just plain murder mystery. I don't live in NYC, so I can't testify to the accuracy of the geography, but it's fiction...who cares? Good junk food novel. ( )

NYPD Red is a task force whose job is protecting New York City's richest, most powerful A-list citizens. ( )

Enjoyable fast read. Hollywood comes to NYC to film a television but there is a madman, disgruntled wanna-be actor, on the loose. He's living out a drama he's writing in his head and murders are being committed on locations around town. Meanwhile, hero cop , Zach, is partnered with the long lost love of his love while pining for the department's psycologist. ( )

Think that James Patterson needs to take a little break. He's books are getting to predictable. I know he writes with other authors, but enough for a while James. I will say that I do like
his Womans Murder mystery series. ( )

Book description
It's the start of Hollywood on Hudson, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. Every night, the red carpet rolls out for movie stars arriving at premieres in limos; the most exclusive restaurants close for private parties for wealthy producers and preeminent 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 this many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert-and they 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 murderer 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.
