    Story
    "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.

    "Great story.."

    I have to admit that at first it took me awhile to get into the story because there were three different lines of thought happening at once and it seems as though they all got solved in the final 20 minutes of the book

    "Highly Suspenseful."

    I couldn't stop listening. I listen at night while I'm falling asleep. This book kept me awake. While I usually don't listen when I am busy or goofing off at home, this one couldn't be ignored. Totally enjoyed this book and can't wait to hear the next.

    "Narrator horrible Good story"

    I love everything James Patterson writes. I've really enjoyed the Private series, but the narrator almost ruined it for me. He sounded drunk when reading Jacks character.

    Story
    "Too rushed"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The story, while basically interesting, was not fully formed and did not flow. The writing was jumpy and the story line just disappointed. It really felt as though it were badly abridged. I really like the Private series, I feel connected to the characters. However, this one just left a lot to be desired.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    Expand on the plot and develop the characters more fully.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Shepherd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The narration was excellent...very smooth and easy to follow.

    "A good second book... Look forward to more."

    This book takes place 6 months after the first Private. I really enjoyed the characters and the "co" writer is the same as the first one. Unfortunately the next books have a different "co" writer and I hope they keep true to the characters. I recommend that Private is the first book you read to get to know the beginnings of these people. This book can stand alone but it is much more fun knowing the history. Good book overall.
