While this is my first read in this series, I look forward to the next books. Altho this was a little slow, I can see how this neat premise can (hopefully) become an interesting series of good reads. I thought his previous books were getting a little same old, same old.
I purchased this book because it was on sale and I thought "if I don't like it, no big deal" but, to my surprise it was a very good book. The flow was consistent the characters were believable and although there were several characters I was only confused once, lol.
That's the good points, however, I was a bit disappointed by the relationship the main character had with his twin and I wanted some back story on the father.
As far as the narrator, I think this is my first time hearing him narrate and he did a wonderful job at putting in the story making you feel each emotion. Over all, I'm glad I purchased the book.
this isn't quite the same kind of story as Alex Cross or Womens murder club. Almost a gumshoe novel with elements of mercenary mixed in. I'm not sure if I like it or not, honestly. However I think there was a little TOO much going on in one book where I'm trying to get a feel for the main characters and remember all their names. It got a little confusing remembering who us who and which case they were talking about at any given time.
Easy read, descent story, I don't particularly care too much about the narrator, he makes main character talk with nasal voice. It was an ok book in its category.
I bought this book in tandem with Red NYC and previously had never gotten around to either reading or listening to a Patterson book. So after Red (which I considered very weak) my expectation was that Private would be 'Adios Patterson!' time, particularly since discovering the Jack Reacher series that has such depth and breadth. But oh surprise! Patterson comes thru with a highly entertaining and layered story that in one hand you can't wait for the entire discovery and on the other you don't want to end...
