Product Description

Review

Acclaim for Private

"Private will grab you from page one and force you to sit there until you turn the very last page. A great start to new a series from the master of fast-paced thrill rides."―lorisreadingcorner.com

"Slick and suspenseful."―BookLoons.com

"PRIVATE mixes action, mystery and personal drama...Patterson and Paetro may well be on their way to rivaling--and possibly surpassing--the popularity of their Women's Murder Club series."―BookReporter.com

Format: Mass Market Paperback
The book was well written. The switching between 1st person and 3rd person added to the flow. Although there were many characters, the subtle reminders of who they were made it easy to remember. Although the happy ending was obvious, it was the way the very final sentence was written that ruined a good read. It's like Patterson wrote it so the book would be made into a movie with a ridiculously flashy ending. It was such a huge disappointment after enjoying turning the previous 400+ pages.
After the final chapter, the epilogue added to the disappointment. It's like Patterson now wanted to leave movie makers the option to convert the action movie to a chick-flick.

I have long been a fan of James Patterson. I am not a fan of sports and do not pay attention to the Olympic games, so parts of this novel were of little interest to me. There were too many characters involved for me to keep straight in my mind, and the happy ending was one I could see coming from the beginning. As usual, though, it was a good, fast paced read and kept me on the edge of my seat. The revelation of the villain was a total surprise. I would recommend this book to any of James Patterson's fans.

I come from England, so this transported me back there as it was so vivid. Great characters, fast pace, and whatever the next level beyond 'page turner' is this is it.
