    During an intimate dinner party, a cat burglar breaks into the home of A-list actor Marcus Dowling. When his wife walks in on the thief, the situation quickly teeters out of control, leaving an empty safe and a lifeless body.

    "Very disappointed"
    Overall

    I have been disappointed by Patterson's recent books, but this one has so many cliche's that are so "juvenile" I actually rolled my eyes while listening! Some parts read like it was written by a child. And the reader is so overly dramatic during her pauses and exclaimations, it was annoying. I am sorry I wasted a credit on this!

    Since former Marine Jack Morgan started Private, it has become the world's most effective investigation firm--sought out by the famous and the powerful to discreetly handle their most intimate problems. Private's investigators are the smartest, the fastest, and the most technologically advanced in the world--and they always uncover the truth.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I liked the narrator for the first book PRIVATE much better than this one. The story in the first book was more engaging, more interesting and less predictable. Probably because this James Patterson wrote it with a different collaborator?


    If you’ve listened to books by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro before, how does this one compare?

    Parts of the book dragged and were so corny I actually rolled my eyes while listening!


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Didn't like his voice changes to reflect different characters.


    Could you see Private: #1 Suspect being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Listen to PRIVATE ..it was much better

  • The Namesake

    The Namesake follows the Ganguli family through its journey from Calcutta to Cambridge to the Boston suburbs. When their son is born, the task of naming him betrays the vexed results of bringing old ways to the new world. Named for a Russian writer by his Indian parents in memory of a catastrophe years before, Gogol Ganguli knows only that he suffers the burden of his heritage as well as his odd, antic name.

    Diana - Audible says: "My favorite book - in print and audio"
    "Can't wait for the movie!"
    Overall

    I loved the reader and thoroughly enjoyed learning more about Indian culture and families. The story follows the life of the main character, Goggle (?) from childhood to adulthood, and his day to day struggles, which, although not terribly exciting, were terribly real. I can't wait for the movie.

    Tom Dunleavy has a one-man law firm in America's wealthiest resort town: legendary East Hampton. But his job barely keeps him in paper clips. His clients make a living serving the rich. The billionaires and celebrities swarming the beaches already have lawyers on their payroll.

    I would not waste a credit on this, and the fact that I did forced me to listen to the end. Multiple readers make it confusing to listen to and the story is bland. Dont bother....
