Mattie Engel is one of the rising stars at Private Berlin, and believes she’s seen the worst of people in her previous life with the Berlin police force. That is until Chris, her colleague - and until recently, her fiancé - is found dead, brutally murdered in an old slaughterhouse outside the city. The slaughterhouse is filled with bodies.

    Story
    "Suspense, history and horrifying"
    Where does Private Berlin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I found the story line and it's involvement in the history of East and West Berlin credible and exciting. I consider some of the graphic descriptions in this novel completely unnecessary. When I read a Paterson novel I expect crime and suspense. This novel I couldn't say I enjoyed and wished I hadn't listened to it. If I'd been reading it, at least I could have skimmed some of the more sadistic pages and may have been able to write a more positive review.


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

    Have read and listened to James Patterson novels, not sure about the combination.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ari Fliakos and January Lavoy ?

    The narrators were excellent and did a fantastic job.


    If you could take any character from Private Berlin out to dinner, who would it be and why?

    I wouldn't take out any character.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I would have just inferred the terrible tortures and injustices. Perhaps just a few (or one short) paragraph would have sufficed. As authors, I'm sure they could have justified Chris's, Ilona's and everyone elses behaviour.

    "Similar to other Private stories"

    I like the Private books and this is my third one. It was a good read but I could not help thinking that the Private was just a title, it did not follow the big money, big tech of the other books. It is a good storyline, sometimes annoying in its nod to difficult to understand German lifestyle. I did enjoy the book but was disappointed it was not a real Private story.

    "Very disappointing"

    I listened intently to the first half of this download. My fascination was growing and I was anticipating a stupendous ending in part 2. Only to find out that the download is corrupted, even after returning and repurchasing. I am left wondering what happened next and disappointed that audible have not fixed the problem.
