RED ALERT is another super read by James Patterson and Marshall Kapp. Non-stop action and multiple story lines, all of which are engaging and well developed. Great book! That said, I have to say that I hate the core idea of the NYPD Red series (though I will keep reading them as they are too entertaining to skip) - a unit of high achieving cops who exist to cater to the needs of high wealth folks, and who have the elected politicians of NY pressuring them constantly to drop more important investigative lines to cater to the whims of spoiled and self-focused rich people. And the cops having to going along with the pressure.
