NYPD Red 3, James Patterson

NYPD Red 3 opening line: Every December 31, Hunter Hutchinson Alden Jr. made the same two New Year’s resolutions.

My blurb:

The story revolves around a wealthy family, and why Hunter makes his two resolutions. The one is to be worth X dollars by the end of the year, and this need to be worth so much is what costs Hunter more than he ever bargained for.

NYPD Red 3

A chilling conspiracy leads NYPD Red into extreme danger

Hunter Alden Jr. has it all: a beautiful wife, a brilliant son and billions in the bank. But when his son goes missing and he discovers the severed head of his chauffeur, it’s clear he’s in danger of losing it all.

The kidnapper knows a horrific secret that could change the world as we know it. A secret worth killing for. A secret worth dying for.

New York’s best detectives, Zach Jordan and Kylie MacDonald, are on the case. But by getting closer to the truth, Zach and Kylie are edging ever closer to the firing line…

My verdict:

Written in conjunction with Marshall Karp, this book took me 3 days to read. I did not want to put the book down as I got to know detectives Zach Jordan and Kylie MacDonald. This is the 3rd book in the series, and I was pleased to be able to read it without having to know what came beforehand.

This book was so good, even Dave did not want to put it down when he started reading it! It involves murder, kidnap and ransom. A perfect combination of crimes and motives for anyone with so much money.
