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. With larger-than-life action, relentless speed, and white-knuckle twists, NYPD Red is the next mega-blockbuster from The Man Who Can't Miss. (TIME)

When was the last time you laughed your way through a murder mystery? Oh I know there are several hours of fun and laughter while solving the weekly murder on TV, but never before, that I can remember,(and I would remember!) have I come across an author that could keep me glued to over 500 pages of fun and mayhem. Mayhem yes, there are several, but add fun.........not any until now.
Somewhere in the back of my mind I've wondered about the writers that James Patterson collaborates with, but never before 'NYPD Red' have I ever bothered to do more than give any of them that passing thought. Something about this book made me look further into his writing partner, Marshall Karp. His bio sent me back to the internet to look for his first book 'The Rabbit Factory'. The $2.99 price tag made downloading it a no brainer. The first page made me a fan! After a marathon read, I went looking for the hard covers of all four of his 'Lomax & Biggs' books. I was only able to find the last two, but was able to download all four to my e-reader.
As mystery readers, I know that you all know the thrill of finding a new writer...well, Happy Birthday, Merry Christmas, Happy Chanukah......here he is... http://karpkills.com/
As for NYPD Red, I'm so pleased that #2 is already being worked on! This is a great addition to JP's series sets..it more than holds it's head up along side Alex Cross, The Murder Club, Michael Bennett and Private. His newest duo is not only brilliant, but the dynamic of putting together a man who hasn't been able to get past the 'girl who got away' and that very same woman who is very much and very happily married, is masterful. Exactly what one can expect from the slightly wacky brain of JP's co-author of choice, Marshall Karp.
