The beginning was a little weird and hard to dig into, but I'm really glad that I did. I wanted Jack Morgan to be more involved, but quickly fell in love with the detective featured. The villain was a mystery until very near the end. I'm ready for the next Private adventure.
Awful! Very hard to get through. I'm switching to the J.B. Robb In Death series. Hopefully I'll have better luck.
Why ever would I do that?
Not printed/audio-booked this loser.
Like I said, get your tarnished spoon out ...
Once I hit DELETE in iTunes.
When looking at the Private Series, Audible has Private Games listed as #3 in the series when it is actually #4 in the series. This caused a moment of confusion when I started Private London (which should actually be third in the series).
Overall, it is an okay book with good narration. The story doesn't hold up well to a lot of analysis so take it for what it is--a light, action-packed read good for the summer.
The killers comments...it's very disturbing...reminded me of the killer in 'Swimsuit'
I didn't finish the book and wish I hadn't wasted my credit on it. I've listened to the first two in the Private Series and really enjoyed them, now I'm leery to listen to any of the other books in the series.
Love to read and listen to books. I prefer detective stories, but also read some sci fi.
When Peter's Mother and Sister-In-Law became interested in his children.
This book was okay and I enjoyed the read as I got further into the book. It seemed to be a little slow starting but picked up after you got into the book. I was surprised to find out who the villian was because I did not know until somewhat towards the end of the book. If you can make it past the beginning, you will enjoy the rest.
I really liked the story. It was very engaging.
Yes. I actually had to keep driving past my destination at times so I could continue to listen.
He did a good job with the main characters. Luckily Jack Morgan didn't speak too often as Paul Panting's American accent wasn't very good, but overall, nicely done.
While some of the story was predictible, enough of it kept me guessing to be really entertained.
I'm a fan of most of James Patterson and who ever he has teamed up with at the moment, but I found this one lacking. I'm done with the Private series.
I don't think so.
This book would be great for someone who has never heard or read the first two Private Series, and is from the UK or Australia. The narrator fails to approximate an American accent, and one cannot recognize Jack Morgan, the primary character in the series. The "first person" narrative of the killer is very dark.
Firstly, the narrator was just too far "off" from previous performances. Secondly, the plot is a huge departure from Jack Morton's world. It doesn't seem to belong in the series.
The narrator had no skill at American accents.
The story took some very interesting turns.
