NYPD Red by James Patterson (with Marshall Karp) is the first in a new detective series.

A special task force has been created in New York City to deal with the “exclusive” red-carpet elite of the city.  Detective Zach Jordan and his new partner (and ex-girlfriend) Kylie MacDonald will be taking the lead.  When a world-renowned producer is murdered, during a “Hollywood on the Hudson” event which is bringing in a lot of bigwigs from out of town, the mayor is on their case.  Calling himself “The Chameleon”, this deranged killer is very unpredictable.

I actually like the fact that Zach, although not totally over Kylie, accepts that she is happily married to someone else and is trying to move on with a romance of his own.  Of course there are problems with Kylie’s husband, but that is a different issue.

If this book is any indication, this series will be the usual Patterson style — a fast read, action-packed, and not too deep.   This one was a good start.  

Now for my disclaimer.  I am not a “hollywood” type fan, so I’m not sure I’m going to like plots that are all going to be about the red-carpet crowd.  That’s just me though.  It’s still James Patterson, and when I want a light read,  he’s my go-to guy.
