9780316096157: Private

The police can't help you

Former CIA agent Jack Morgan runs Private, a renowned investigation company with branches around the globe. It is where you go when you need maximum force and maximum discretion. The secrets of the most influential men and women on the planet come to Jack daily--and his staff of investigators uses the world's most advanced forensic tools to make and break their cases.

The press will destroy you

Jack is already deep into the investigation of a multi-million dollar NFL gambling scandal and the unsolved slayings of 18 schoolgirls when he learns of a horrific murder close to home: his best friend's wife, Jack's former lover, has been killed. It nearly pushes him over the edge. Instead, Jack pushes back and devotes all of Private's resources to tracking down her killer.

Only one place to turn: Private

But Jack doesn't have to play by the rules. As he closes in on the killer and chooses between revenge and justice, Morgan has to navigate a workplace love affair that threatens to blow the roof off his plans. With a plot that moves at death-defying speeds, Private is James Patterson sleekest, most exciting thriller ever.

About the Author:

James Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1977 James Patterson's books have sold more than 240 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.

From AudioFile:

For several years now, major authors have headlined books with a co-author--no doubt the idea is to sell more copies. This fast-moving mystery, ably narrated by Peter Hermann, has an awful lot going on. Jack Morgan, head of a global private investigation firm called Private, is called upon to investigate the death of a friend's wife, plus the serial murders of more than a dozen high school girls. He's got more technology at his disposal than the CIA; furthermore, he's known to make his own rules--rules that allow him to indulge in a dose of revenge along with securing justice for the victims of crimes. Frankly, without Peter Hermann's quick-paced narration, this listener might have abandoned ship. But Hermann's perfect style and diction make this a quick and palatable listen. A.L.H.
