In case you'e missed it ... NYPD RED, NYPD RED 2, and NYPD RED 3 are a series that features a police department that solely works committed against or by the very rich and famous in New York City.
The detectives are highly trained to deal with the elite. Detectives Zach Jordan and Kylie MacDonald are the best of the best.
In this, the third of the series, a headless corpse is found. The son of a very connected man is presumed to have been kidnapped, but family strongly denies this. It's a case of lies and deceipt, cover ups, and greed with plenty of twists to keep you interested in seeing what's going to happen next.
Detective Jordan is the calmer of their partnership, while Detective MacDonald is the rule bender/breaker. They both love their jobs and there is nothing better than chasing the bad guys. Thank goodness they have a boss who is more circumspect in dealing with the big wigs.
There are a lot of characters ... a lot of action. The characters are quirky and witty and keep each other sane with their humor when their cases go south.
I haven't read many Patterson books for awhile ... but this is one series that I recommend. As usual, the chapters are short and easy to read.
As usual, great mystery and thriller.
One of my favorite series!
Another great story by Patterson. Lots of back and forth emotions for the dad. I couldn't turn the pages quick enough, and as typical for Patterson, lots of surprises.
James Patterson never ceases to amaze with his stories.
PROTECT THE RICH. SERVE THE FAMOUS. HUNT THE GUILTY. â NYPD Red is the elite, highly trained task force assigned to protect the rich, the famous, and the connected. And Detective Zach Jordan and his partner Kylie MacDonald-the woman who broke his heart at the police academy-are the best of the best, brilliant and tireless investigators who will stop at nothing to deliver justice.
Zach and Kylie's New Year's celebrations are cut short when they're called to the home of billionaire businessman Hunter Alden, Jr. after he makes a grisly discovery in his townhouse garage. When Alden's teenage son goes missing soon afterwards, and his father seems oddly reluctant to find him, Zach and Kylie find themselves in the middle of a chilling conspiracy that threatens everyone in its wake-especially their city's most powerful citizens.
NYPD Red 3 is the next sensational novel in James Patterson's explosive new series, a thriller that goes behind the closed doors of New York high society and into the depths of depravity.
I did not enjoy number 3 is much as I did one and 2. Must've been too long a time frame between reading the 1st 2 and then number 3.
