Review

"In the case of NYPD RED, there is simply too much fun --- in the form of inventive murder, sex, chemistry, investigation, more murder, more sex, and the like. Potboiler? Yes. Wonderfully told? Indeed."―bookreporter.com

PRAISE FOR JAMES PATTERSON:

"The prolific Patterson seems unstoppable."
USA Today

"James Patterson knows how to sell thrills and suspense in clean, unwavering prose."―People

"Patterson's novels are sleek entertainment machines, the Porsches of commercial fiction, expertly engineered and lightning fast."―Publishers Weekly

Format: Hardcover
The concept of the NYPD Red series had me from the jump. NYPD Red is an elite police squad tasked with protecting New York’s rich, famous and productive. Detective Zach Jordan does not run Red, but he is the biggest and most effective cog of the very shiny investigative wheel that turns only when a high-profile crime has been committed. When one considers the locale in which Red operates, it turns fairly often. The second book in this fine series --- fittingly, if somewhat unimaginatively, titled NYPD RED 2 --- shows authors James Patterson and Marshall Karp at the top of their creative games, producing an exciting story that twists, turns and shines from first page to last.

The meat of NYPD RED 2 begins with an unforgettable vignette. New York is under siege by a fiend dubbed by the media as the Hazmat Killer, due to his penchant for killing his victims and then displaying them rather publicly in Tyvek coveralls. Readers are introduced to the Hazmat Killer when his fourth victim is discovered, brutally murdered and displayed on a revolving carousel in the heart of Central Park. What makes this poor soul different is that she is Evelyn Parker-Steele, a high-influence political operator who is running the campaign of the challenger in New York’s mayoral election. As with the other victims, the Hazmat Killer has provided the police with a video of Parker-Steele confessing to a serious crime.

Given Parker-Steele’s prestige, the case is handed over to Jordan and his partner, Kylie MacDonald. Jordan and MacDonald have a history of being involved in the remote past, and while they are with others at the present time, a flicker from the torch each used to carry for the other occasionally manifests itself.

The last Alex Cross books have really disappointed me and made me wonder if Patterson is writing too much. This book, while co-authored, restored some of my love for Patterson's style and talent.

Since Patterson has virtually stopped writing books and simply puts his imprimatur on the works of others (Karp in this instance) I have avoided picking up books with his name on it. However, in this instance, buying it was a good choice, The read is fast, with few lags in the action, to the point that I devoured this book in a couple of days. So, by all means buy it, even though it should say edited by JP, rather than written by.

NYPD Red2 is a likable tale that seems well posed to be a summer beach read. Except that it's just now spring, so take it on a long flight and it will get you where you're going without making too many demands on your brain. The novel fits in well with the James Patterson genre, and author Marshall Karp should easily be back with another novel soon. One irritant with NYPD Red2 is the constant use of italics to jack up the action. It's as if the author feels a need to remind the reader that "Hey, this is exciting here." It does have excitement, but also some rather uncomplicated characters and a fairly straightforward plot.. It's not great literature, but it was fun reading.

I love James Patterson mysteries and detective novels. I read everything I can get my hands on. I think the preview should be released closer to the release date for the book. Too much time has passed and I will need to start over when the rest comes out.

James Patterson's NYPD Red 2 was excellent.. I read NYPD Red and this one is better. The plot was intriguing and you never really know who was involved in the killings. Anyone who enjoys a good James Patterson's book will really enjoy this one. The twists and turns make it one of the most important part of the book.

Very fast reading and attention holding. Liked the different story lines that will probably be weaving throughout this book.

A rape and evidence destroyed out of fear for another family member. A plan put into place for revenge on the rapist.

A funeral that resembles the style of a mafia family. As the police looks for the killer the family declares, during the funeral, "The family would make it's own justice". Could Mafia style revenge be in the works?

A gang of kids beating up homeless people for the sport of it.

A murder of what some called "the first lady of rich chicks". "Rich, famous and connected". NYPD Red takes the case. A special unit most officers would give their arm to be a part of. Another victim of what the media had dubbed the "Hazmat Killer"? Or was she killed by a copy cat to silence her because she was a high profile person running the campaign for the woman running against the present mayor? Or was she killed because of her past and what it seemed she had gotten away with?

Looking forward to reading the rest of this book. Looking forward to finding out what other twists and turns will take place in this book.
