Overview

NYPD Red is a special task force charged with protecting the interests of Manhattan's wealthiest and most powerful citizens. When a world-famous movie producer is poisoned on the first day of a Manhattan film festival called Hollywood on the Hudson, they are the first ones called. Then an actor is killed on the set of a film. And a Molotov cocktail explodes at a movie premiere.

Detective First Grade Zach Jordan and his new partner—and ex-girlfriend—Detective Kylie MacDonald are assigned to the case. The killer has every murder, every escape, planned down to the last detail—and he's scripted an explosive finale that will bring New York and Hollywood to its knees. With larger-than-life action, relentless speed, and white-knuckle twists, NYPD RED is a mega-blockbuster from "The Man Who Can't Miss." (TIME)

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble

When Manhattan's elite "Hollywood on the Hudson" film festival begins to turn into a horror show, NYPD detective Zach Jordan and his partner Kylie MacDonald work quickly to save the city from chaos. A James Patterson novel receiving stellar reader reviews.

Larry King
"I can't believe how good Patterson is, whether he's doing a Washington police yarn or traveling a different road with a female narrator. He is always on the mark. I have never begun a Patterson book and been able to put it down."
Michael Connelly
"Patterson boils a scene down to the single, telling detail, the element that defines a character or moves the plot along. It's what fires off the movie projector in the reader's mind."
David Lazarus
"Patterson knows how to keep the pages turning."

Meet the Author

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

Biography

James Patterson had been working as a very successful advertising copywriter when he decided to put his Masters degree in English to a somewhat different use. Inspired by bestselling hair-raising thrillers like The Day of the Jackal and The Exorcist, Patterson went to work on his first novel. Published in 1976, The Thomas Berryman Number established him as a writer of tightly constructed mysteries that move forward with the velocity of a bullet. For his startling debut, Patterson was awarded the prestigious Edgar Award for Best First Mystery Novel—an auspicious beginning to one of the most successful careers in publishing.

A string of gripping standalone mysteries followed, but it was the 1992 release of Along Came a Spider that elevated Patterson to superstar status. Introducing Alex Cross, a brilliant black police detective/forensic psychologist, the novel was the first installment in a series of bestselling thrillers that has proved to be a cash cow for the author and his publisher.

Examining Patterson's track record, it's obvious that he believes one good series deserves another…maybe even a third! In 2001, he debuted the Women's Murder Club with 1st to Die, a fast-paced thriller featuring four female crime fighters living in San Francisco—a homicide detective, a medical examiner, an assistant D.A., and a cub reporter. The successful series has continued with other numerically titled installments. Then, spinning off a set of characters from a previous novel (1998's When the Wind Blows), in 2005 he published Maximum Ride: The Angel Experiment. Featuring a "flock" of genetically engineered flying children, the novel was a huge hit, especially with teen readers, and spawned a series of vastly popular fantasy adventures.

In addition to continuing his bestselling literary franchises, Patterson has also found time to co-author thrillers with other writers—including Peter de Jonge, Andrew Gross, Maxine Paetro, and Howard Roughan—and has even ventured into romance (Suzanne's Diary for Nicholas, Sam's Letters to Jennifer) and children's literature (santaKid). Writing at an astonishing pace, this prolific author has turned himself into a one-man publishing juggernaut, fulfilling his clearly stated ambition to become "the king of the page-turners."

Good To Know

Patterson's Suzanne's Diary For Nicholas was inspired by a diary his wife kept that tracked the development of their toddler son.

Two of Patterson's Alex Cross mysteries (Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls) have been turned into films starring Morgan Freeman; in 2007, a weekly television series premiered, based on the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels.

    PATTERSON REMOVES STENCH OF "ZOO" WITH GREAT READ!

    Alex Cross and Mike Bennett meet Detectives Zach Jordan and his new partner and ex girlfriend Kylie MacDonald. With The Women's Murder Club series Patterson has four of the best cop series published; at least I hope NYPD Red becomes a series.

    NYPD Red is an elite task force created to guard over high risk celebrity and political events in New York City post 911. During the yearly film industry's Hollywood on the Hudson event that pitches New York City as a great place to film movies, things begin to happen that change the tone of the events. A famous producer is murdered followed by several escalating scenes of horror that kill film industry giants as well as paparazzi and fans.

    Personal connections to the events both help and hinder Zach and Kylie all along while they are figuring out how to take their relationship from personal to intensly professional and as personal as two partners entrusted with each others lives need to be. With an interestingly drawn bad guy coupled with dark humor enjoyed by cops this book is a great read. Very fast paced with the story moving forward page to page and the reader comes to the end of it thinking, "THIS WOULD BE A HECK OF A MOVIE! SOMEONE WITH SOME "Die Hard" JUICE IN THEIR VEINS GREENLIGHT THIS BOOK TO MOVIE!!!

    James Patterson

    The book is not published yet, but reading the overview I think it should be as good as all other James Patterson books. He is a good story teller and I have always enjoyed his books. His Alex Cross series was very good and if this book has the same high quality, it would be fun.

    NYPD Red by James Patterson

    With James Patterson and Marshall Karp writing this novel, I knew I was going to be entertained! For a good laugh out loud book , read "The Rabbit Factory" by Marshall Karp. Daisy

    I Also Recommend:

    Marshall Karp is one of my favorite authors. I do not like James

    Marshall Karp is one of my favorite authors. I do not like James Patterson and his &quot;once a month&quot; new novel that he publishes with
    other authors. All Mr. Patterson is doing is making money off other people. SHAME on you Mr. Patterson.  I will not buy any of your books.
    Can't you write a book of your own?

    It's hard for me to enjoy a book with so much bad language. Also has graphic scenes of intimacy.

    Another terrific James Patterson book

    As usual, James Patterson has done it again - my husband and I hope the characters in this book will be the beginning of another new series like Alex Cross, Michael Bennett, the Murder Women's Club, and the Private series. His books are easy to read, chapters short, and the characters are very interesting and they seem to have good chemistry. Can't wait for his next book!

    Enjoyable but not the best

    Good book but doesn't come close to the Alex Cross series. Patterson is maybe co-authoring too many books.
