NYPD RED is about a special unit of the NYPD police department who are assigned to protect the richest and most famous of those individuals within the city of NYPD.
The story is primarily about Detective Zach Jordan, who’s partner (Omar Shanks) recently tore his ACL at the NYPDs softball game vs. the fire department. For four months Omar will be “off the grid.”
Zach’s new partner, Kylie Mcdonalds (who had a past relationship with Zach) was recently recruited on their task force as his new partner.
I was disappointed that James Patterson did not really go into to much depth about their past relationship. I would had really loved to learn more. Or would we have to wait to read about it in NYPD RED 2 (which is still not available at my public library to check out!).
But with Kylies husband in existence, Zach knows Kylie is off limits.
Moreover, the story is also about “The Chameleon”. The VILLAIN of this story. He isn’t pulling any high school pranks, he is actually “acting out scenes he wrote” in real life.
What is this guys problem? And what is his vendetta? Are it the individuals themselves he has a grudge about or is it them as a whole?
Unfortunately, the chameleon is too clever and sneaky to get caught. He was actually disappointed he wasn’t question by Detective Jordan and McDonalds at the scene of the crime during the “accidental shootings” for Ian Stewart.
The Chameleon caused two more murders. One before the shooting, where Sid Roth was “poisoned” while having breakfast, and the other an explosion to blow up Brad Schuck.
Later, with his girlfriend Lexi, who loved the Chameleons deceptive plans, enjoyed watching their “scenes” on the news. While enjoying themselves together, Gabe,The Chameleon, received a phone call.
The caller seemed to know exactly who was causing these explosions and murders. He immediately accused Gabe. Of course Gabe denied the accusations, but the caller knew better.
Who is this caller, and how is he so sure its Gabe causing these events that are all over the news?
