nypd red 2

Detective Zach Jordan and his partner Kylie MacDonald are part of the elite NYPD Red squad that solves crimes committed against the elite citizens of New York. A vigilante serial killer is on the loose, tracking down and murdering people whose crimes have not been punished. After taping a confession of past crimes, victims are murdered and left in a HAZMAT suit in a public place. When his latest victim is a woman of vast wealth who had many influential connections, Zach and Kylie are assigned the task of tracking down HAZMAT killer.

With four seemingly unconnected victims they are stumped, recruiting more help from a pair of beat cops. After a potential fifth victim is identified, they are in a race against time to find her and stop the killer.

Zach is worried about more than the case though – Kylie has been acting strange recently and her secrets might implode on the case. Will they catch the bad guy in time to save the victim?

A very well plotted mystery with a lot of action, there are many ‘a-ha!” moments occurring with titbits of info I hadn’t seen coming. This can be read as a standalone book; I hadn’t read the first but quickly figured out who as who without being flooded with back-story. I was caught up in this book and eagerly await the next.
