NYPD Red (Hardcover)
It's the start of Hollywood on Hudson, and New York City is swept up in the glamour. Every night, the red carpet rolls out for movie stars arriving at premieres in limos; the most exclusive restaurants close for private parties for wealthy producers and preeminent directors; and thousands of fans gather with the paparazzi, hoping to catch a glimpse of the most famous and beautiful faces in the world. With this many celebrities in town, special task force NYPD Red is on high alert-and they can't afford to make a single mistake. Then a world-renowned producer fatally collapses at his power breakfast, and top NYPD Red Detective Zach Jordan is the first one on the scene. Zach works with his beautiful new partner, Detective Kylie MacDonald-who also happens to be his ex-girlfriend-to discover who the murderer might be. But this is only the beginning: the most brutal, public, and horrifyingly spectacular crimes they've ever encountered are about to send all of New York into chaos, putting NYPD Red on the ropes. Zach and Kylie know there's no way of telling what a killer this deranged will do next. With the whole world watching, they have to find a way to stop a psychopath who has scripted his finale down to the last explosive detail. With larger-than-life action, relentless speed, and white-knuckle twists, NYPD Red is the next mega-blockbuster from "The Man Who Can't Miss." (TIME)

An award-winning former advertising executive, Marshall Karp is a playwright ("Squabbles"), screenwriter ("Just Looking") and has been a writer, producer, and executive producer on TV shows for all the major networks. Now Karp is fulfilling a lifelong fantasy by killing the people he used to work with. His first novel, "The Rabbit Factory", set in a Disneyesque studio introduces LAPD Detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs. In "Bloodthirsty", they returned when some of the most powerful and hated men in Hollywood began turning up dead. In "Flipping Out", Karp turned his murderous impulses to the real estate market. Karp lives in the Hudson Valley region of New York, where he is at work on the further adventures of Lomax & Biggs.
