I finished this book in a shorter time than I thought it would. I had no idea it would be this good. It's an amazing read, I just wish it was longer. Definitely worth my time.

This fast-paced mystery introduces readers to Detective Zach Jordan. Jordan is a respected detective who has risen through the NYPD ranks to join the elite “Red” team – a team dedicated to protecting the rich and famous. When all the big names from Hollywood are arriving in New York City for Hollywood on the Hudson, the antagonist of the book, the psychotic Chameleon, begins acting out his screen-play in the making. While champagne corks are popping, the rich and famous are dropping!
Jordan is partnered with his married ex-girlfriend Kylie MacDonald to stop this psychotic D-list actor from striking again. While they work to catch a serial killer, Jordan struggles to keep his past feelings for Kylie a secret while exploring his new interest in police psychologist Cheryl Robinson. This is an easy read filled with fast-paced action, murder and strong supporting female characters. A page-turning series debut that will appeal to fans of Iris Johansen, Janet Evanovich and Harlan Coben.
