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.

The Audiobook CD was okay – but not one of my favorites.

Very good book. Tightly written with a good plot. 8 of 10 for me.

I like the main character and his "issues". Rings a slight bell from JD Robb's use of unique backstory about her detective.

Just wasn't up to his usual level. Didn't like it much at all.

A very well written novel of intrigue by this master, though I could have done with less personal drama in the life of the main charactor. That aside, the other plots are well crafted and handled expertly. 9 of 10 stars
