Overview

When NYPD Red arrives at a crime scene, everyone takes notice. Known as the protectors of the rich, famous, and connected, NYPD Red is the elite task force called in only for New York City's most high-profile crimes. And Detective Zach Jordan is the best of the best, a brilliant and relentless pursuer of justice. He puts professionalism above all, ignoring his feelings for his partner, Detective Kylie MacDonald, the woman who broke his heart when they first met in the academy.

But even with their top-notch training, Zach and Kylie aren't prepared for what they see when they're called to a crime scene in the heart of Central Park. They arrive to find a carousel spinning round and round, its painted horses grinning eerily in the early morning dark. There is only one rider: a brutally slaughtered woman, her body tied up and dressed in a Hazmat suit, on display for the world to see.

The victim, a woman of vast wealth and even greater connections, is the fourth in a string of shocking murders that have hit the city. As the public pressure mounts, and political and personal secrets of the highest order hang in the balance, Zach and Kylie must find out what's really behind the murderer's rampage. But Kylie has been acting strange recently--and Zach knows whatever she's hiding could threaten the biggest case of their careers.

NYPD Red 2 is the next outstanding novel in James Patterson's newest series, a thriller that careens through New York City and deep into the psyche of a depraved killer you've never seen before.

Awesome! This is a good read! Read one book from James Patterson and you'll be a fan forever.

An exciting and fast paced sequel to NYPD RED As expected, Patterson has written another best seller with the main charaters complimenting each other and adding a realistic insight to the human race, both in and out side the law Known for his short chapters, it left me wanting to read just one more~ and sincerely hoping that NYPD 3 is already in the works *****

I've got to admit,I rented from the library,was tired of paying for Pattersons books to be dissapointed! Unsure who is responsible for how good this was..but am inclined to read the first one now..since there's a 3rd coming out. Hope they can hold a candle to this one...as I prefer to read on my nook!

James Patterson never disappoints. I enjoy his books on CD since I have Glaucoma and cannot read for long periods of time.
