NYPD Red 3 by James Patterson and

NYPD Red 3 (NYPD Red 3)NYPD Red 3 by James Patterson

My rating: 4 of 5 stars


Hunter Alden, Jr., a billionaire businessman, has it all: a sexy wife, a brilliant teenage son, and an ever-growing fortune. But his perfect life shatters one horrific night when he discovers the severed head of his chauffeur, stuffed in a bag marked, in blood, with his son's initials. Now his son is missing, and the price to get him back might be too high--even for one of the world's richest men.

When NYPD Red, the elite task force for New York City's most high-profile crimes, takes the case, Detective Zach Jordon and his partner--and ex-girlfriend--Kylie MacDonald have never seen anything so unspeakable. As the investigation continues, Zach and Kylie realize that the closer they get to the truth, the more their own lives are in danger.

"Read" as an audio book.

Thoroughly enjoyed this selection. What I like about this audio book series, something that I have only come across maybe once before, are different voices for the protagonists and antagonists. Both narrators have great intonation, delivery and are distinctive enough that it works and it work very well.

Premise of the book is a decapitated chauffeur is found in a well known New York park the day after New Years. The son of a billionaire has gone missing. Kylie and Zach, New York's finest detectives, are called in to investigate. What they find is a rats nest of lies and cover-ups with international ramifications.

In between all the detective work, we have a full blown romance going on, which, in all honesty kinda rubs me the wrong way. Our good detective Josh continues to be torn between the gorgeous and single Dr. and his married - but might be divorcing - partner Kylie. Oh! The poor guy is so conflicted! Does he want the blonde, or the brunette? Blah.

However, the mystery/thriller part was very engaging and had enough subtle twists and turns to keep my attention very engaged. This is a fast read, even as an audio book. Recommended.
