I was disappointed in this book. There were three or four storylines going on and none of them got the attention they needed to really tell their stories. This book was actually quite boring. I really wanted to like the main character, Jack Morgan, but he's no Harry Bosch or Mike Bennett (I know Harry Bosch isn't a James Patterson character, I'm just using him as an example). I couldn't wait to finish this book so I could move to something else. I expected more from James Patterson and Maxine Paetro.
I found this book a little confusing. It had 3 events unfolding at once...It all involved Jack who ran "Private" a PI firm. I liked how it had twists and turns that are definitely Mr. Patterson's trademark. It was a good book overall.
Another page-turner from Patterson, et al. This apparently will be a new series from Patterson featuring the PI firm Private. Overall, I did enjoy this one with a new cast of characters although I thought there were maybe one too many storylines going on - I really didn't see the need for the football fixing angle. The schoolgirl murders were most in line with other Patterson thrillers and I thought this part of the novel could have been fleshed out a little more. But in the end, I would give this one a mild recommendation and I will probably read the next "Private" novel when it comes out.
I was truly impressed with this book. Three crimes investigated by Jack Morgan's firm "Private" - a new series with great promise. Jack is hot, brilliant - with some personal problems that make him vulnerable and quite human. A great cast of characters, love interests and some really nasty villians. Looking forward to the next book in the series.
This one was just okay for me ... Moved along at a nice pace but wasn't exactly a page turner
