The police can't help you

Former Marine helicopter pilot 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.

    A great start to a great series. A wonderful exercise in escapism by one of the kings of this genre.

    Excellent start to a hopefully new series. Cannot wait!

    I enjoyed this book - although abridged - since I am a commuter and at times, I look for the less literary diversions, such as this. Simple plot, so-so writing but entertaining nonetheless. I had my husband along on some of my commutes and he got hooked on this book pretty quickly, but since he isn't much of a bibiophile (sp?), I discounted his opinion. It opens up to the next in the series if that occurs. Patterson is no fool. Good, easy read with little depth.

  • Gee

    Story was OK not Pattersons best work. Did not have the flair of his usual books
