    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.

    Story
    "painful"

    I don't believe that James Patterson wrote this book. I gave it 2 stars because I listened until the murderer was identified. The narration was rough but I've listened to worse. if you must continue in the series I suggest you take the book out from a library.

    Story
    "Consistent characters in the presentation"

    Second in the series and the primary characters recur. Multiple storylines that interweave but like the first book, there is a lot of running around before a rapid and not completely satisfying denouement. Again, a bit too whiny for my taste but a good story. Will consider another book in the series probably. This reader was not as compelling as the reader of the first book.

    Story
    "Serials to me are a mixed bag"

    You get hook on the first book and familiar with the characters and you start understanding how they work together. That's the fun part but it's also part that leads you to know how the plot is going to be resolved. These stories are prefect for driving down the road talking on the phone and going back and forth to the story.

    Story
    "Private follows the private theme but without zip"
    What did you like best about Private: #1 Suspect? What did you like least?

    I like Jack. Like many books that are a series, you get hooked on the main character and can't wait for the next release. The book held my interest and had enough going on to keep me awake while driving. The multiple stories within the story are well engineered and magically, all is resolved at the end.


    Has Private: #1 Suspect turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No, I will continue to read these as long as Patterson keeps writing them. It is hard to find good heros that are just a little damaged.


    What three words best describe Scott Shepherd’s performance?

    Clear, timely, in context


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes

    "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
