NYPD Red 3 by James Patterson & Marshall Karp, 359 pages
This was typical Patterson book: fast paced and entertaining. In this story, Tripp, the son and grandson of extremely wealthy New York businessmen, is missing and presumed kidnapped. The family's chauffer is dead and no one is talking. To further complicate matters, the two detectives looking into the case, Zach and Kylie, are both having problems with their personal lives right now, specifically with their significant others. Of course, Zach and Kylie were an item once, and because of their other complications, they are clearly toying with the possibility again. The kidnapping and murder story is pretty convoluted, which I thought was satisfyingly entertaining but could be perceived as tiredly overdone and silly. I liked it and I think that most of Patterson's fans will be happy with the new addition to this series.
