So So. Peter Hermann was the best by miles. I would highly recommend him for future stories
I usually get very engrossed in his books, but this one left me cold and just wanting to get to the end. The tone reminded me of "Dragnet", obviously written and narrated for a male audience.
I felt a need for more connection between the characters and stories... My perception was of three disconnected stories, all ending too tidily and neatly all at once.
Did not get much emotion from the voice, seemed like a Dragnet type narration.
Not read the others in the series.
I don't usually write negative comments, but I believe this one was warranted. Anybody else feel the same way?
Another multi-plot/case twist and turn. Our hero runs three cases and two women at once. Hard to imagine, but it's fiction and a fun listen.
First PRIVATE was sharp, moved at a good clip and had interesting charachters. This reads more like something the authors dashed off over a weekend to cash in on the success of the first book. Narrator was ok...little too affected for my taste, but he wasn't given a lot to work with. Great concept...a super detective agency with the best and brightest...made first book great. This failed the test on every score. Not sure I want to risk credits with any more in the series.
More interesting charachters. Women charachters, especially, were weak and predictable.
The whole sidebar about the mob.
Beware of sequels
sports announcer, cyclist, enjoys to travel and the outdoors.
i was find with book 2 except they used another narrator, which makes it harder especially if you go right from book 1 to book 2. Otherwise I like it. Even though it was easy to see guess who the bad guy was early on in the book
I really liked the introduction of Jinx Poole, a potential new love interest
I wasn't crazy about the narration - something about his voice wasn't very convincing
The story didn't have a lot of context to it. You needed to remember the murder victim from a prior book. Likewise, the reason for the long standing beef between Jack and his twin Tommy was glossed over in explanation.. Just not alot there to motivate me to pick up another in this series tho i probably will
only made it 2 hours before i turned it off. i can't believe that james patterson and maxine paetro published this. i have listened to most all the james patterson books. this is the fist one i did not finish.
No I would not. I will buy the book and read it. The narrator is awful!
He is trying to put in a New York accent by the sounds of it and sound like a tough mobster and doing both poorly.
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?
Parts of the book dragged and were so corny I actually rolled my eyes while listening!
Didn't like his voice changes to reflect different characters.
Listen to PRIVATE ..it was much better
Defender Of The Week Collector Of The Paycheck. "I Don't Fail I Succeed At Finding Ways That Don't Work!"---(Christopher Titus)
a good story, and interesting characters.
what I didn't like is the tendency to repeat, supposition and plot points mentioned a few chapters later multiple times.
nothing comes to mind.
the "Batman" Gravely voice for Jack was a bit annoying.
