Book Review: NYPD Red by James Patterson - Reviewed by CloggieA (20 Jun 2013)
NYPD Red is another book with James Patterson’s name on the cover, most likely written by the “co-writer”, Marshall Karp. Plot summary: a crazy movie extra with delusions of being an actor/director decides to take out his frustrations on the actors and directors who are visiting the Big Apple for a “Hollywood on the Hudson” promotion, thus becoming a serial killer. NYPD Red, the department created to look after elite New Yorkers, is on the case. As usual, short chapters (maximum 4 pages, less half a page for each chapter intro) which allow for almost no character development results in cardboard characters. There is an obligatory profiler, and of course, all the characters are gorgeous. Some of the action borders on slap-stick and the dialogue is uninspiring: boring and clichéd; the only exceptions were two passages which might elicit a laugh: page 125 “This is an old white guy,” Rafe said. “I told them other cops that the busboy was a young Latino.” “Yes, sir,” Dobrin said. “But imagine that this is a disguise. Let’s say the white hair is a wig. Now imagine that the busboy was also wearing a disguise. Do you see any similarities between the two of them – you know, like height, build, bone structure?” and page 155 where Lexi gives away Gabe’s identity to the guy they are robbing. Oh! Now I’ve given you the best bits, you won’t need to read the book! Save your reading time for something more worthwhile.
