Impossible murders

When his former lover is found murdered in Jack Morgan's bed, he is instantly the number one suspect. While Jack is under police investigation, the mob strong-arms him into recovering $30 million in stolen pharmaceuticals for them. And the beautiful manager of a luxury hotel chain persuades him to quietly investigate a string of murders at her properties.

    Story
    "Private is worth a listen"
    If you could sum up Private: #1 Suspect in three words, what would they be?

    Good story with a few problems.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    I was wondering what in the heck happened to Morgan's girlfriend. There were things mentioned that happened before Morgan and she reunited, and it was left hanging. Maybe it will be addressed in a later book.


    What about Scott Shepherd’s performance did you like?

    He does a good job varying the voices.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No.


    Any additional comments?

    I'll keep listening to the Morgan books, but I'm a little displeased that the Private series seems to be all over the place.

    "Good but not great"
    Would you listen to Private: #1 Suspect again? Why?

    Perhaps, but I generally do not re-listen to books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story had numerous twists and turns which kept the readers interest. The plots were predictable, however.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Busting the van filled with drugs out of the warehouse.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions. I enjoyed the book but it wasn't a life changer.


    Any additional comments?

    I like James Patterson's writing but this wasn't his best. Not bad, but not his best.
