The Red Book (A Black Book Thriller, 2)

We rated this book:


This is the first James Patterson book I have ever read and now I’m wondering why I haven’t picked up one of the bestselling author’s books before now.

The Red Book is the second book in the Black Book Thriller series. It stars Detective Billy Harney as the head of an SOS (Special Operations Section) case for the Chicago Police Department. After investigating what seems to be an everyday drive-by shooting, Harney and his crew figure out whodunnit and lay the case to rest. The only thing that keeps nagging at Harney is that fact that there was an unidentified girl with a black lily ankle tattoo killed along with the drug dealers. Harney finds out that the girl is part of a much larger case, a possible sex-trafficking ring. Billy doesn’t know whom he can trust on the force and, therefore, does some digging of his own.

The Red Book is a fast-paced thriller that will keep you guessing until the end. The plot becomes more and more personal to Billy as he uncovers the truth. It is an excellent story with very real characters. If you like suspense stories mixed with police action, this should be the next book you pick up.
