Before collaborating with best selling author James Patterson, Marshall Karp was in advertising, where the punishment for creating award-winning TV campaigns is to put the writer in charge of an entire department and tell him to stop writing ads. Trapped in a corner office, Karp wrote a play, "Squabbles," which attracted the attention of network executives. He created "Everything's Relative," a CBS comedy starring Jason Alexander, moved to LA to become writer/producer for the NBC hit, "Amen," then served as writer/co-executive producer for ABC's "Baby Talk" and several other long forgotten TV series. A feature film, "Just Looking," directed by Jason Alexander, was released in 2000. Karp returned to NY, and in 2006 he fulfilled a long-time fantasy by killing many of the people he worked with in Hollywood. His first novel, "The Rabbit Factory," set in a Disneyesque studio, introduces LAPD Detectives Mike Lomax and Terry Biggs. Three more Lomax and Biggs mysteries followed ("Bloodthirsty," "Flipping Out," and "Cut, Paste, Kill"). In 2011 he coauthored the #1 NY Times bestseller "Kill Me If You Can" with James Patterson. A second collaboration, "NYPD Red," followed in 2012. "NYPD Red 2" will be released in March 2014. In 2002 Karp joined the Board of Advisors of Vitamin Angels and is one of the architects of Operation 20/20, whose goal is to prevent blindness and dramatically reduce mortality rates among the 200 million children around the world who suffer from Vitamin A deficiency.

I am a huge, unabashed Marshall Karp fan. His Lomax and Briggs books are long-time favorites of mine (the best part of writing this post is that I learned that a month and a half ago, he self-published a new one! The fact that I haven't dropped everything -- including this post -- to go read it is s...

Surprisingly, I enjoyed this more than expected. The past few Patterson books I've read have been firmly around three stars, but this one caught my attention and was an entertaining read. Maybe because I read it on the plane

I was trying to figure out what I liked about this series that I didn't with the Cross ones.I think - don't quote me - that this read has a little more filling. Especially to the cases. Zack and Kylie are more hands on, running from site to site and tossing ideas back and forth which draws the reade...

I will keep this one short and sweet. I am still a JP fan. I will always love the Alex Cross books. I still avidly read the Women's Murder Club books. I will not be wasting my time with any of these others because the writing has definitely suffered in the last several years. The attempts at humor i...
