Impossible murders

When his former lover is found murdered in Jack Morgan's bed, he is instantly the number one suspect.

    "Great Book 2!"
    What made the experience of listening to Private: #1 Suspect the most enjoyable?

    I bought to listen in my car during my commute to and from work. It made my long commute tolerable.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Morgan. Even with his success and money, he still has morals. He is a very likable guy even with some of his flaws.


    What does Scott Shepherd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He made the book more enjoyable, as if I'm actually watching the story instead of just listening to it.


    Any additional comments?

    The only critique I have is the book seemed to have ended abruptly. Maybe there's another book in store but I wished there were more follow up to Jack's and Justine's relationship. They really complement one another...and I'm a sucker for happy endings.

    "Better than I expected"

    After listening to the 1st book in this series, which I found disappointing, I was surprised to find this one had more substance. Still had too many plot lines going on at once, but this time each one was better developed than in the pilot. Not as well done in jumping back and forth between plot lines as it could have been. Narration was good, with appropriate feeling. Will listen to more of these to see if they continue to improve.

    Story
    "Worth the time"
    What did you love best about Private: #1 Suspect?

    The story moved along and kept you engaged.


    What other book might you compare Private: #1 Suspect to and why?

    I think it falls along the same line as many of Patterson's work includeing, the Alex Cross series.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    While the read was strong I read the read the 1st and 2nd book back to back and having different readers took some getting use to.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    When being the best may not be enough.

    "An interesting problem"
    Would you listen to Private: #1 Suspect again? Why?

    At some point I may give it another whirl since I did like the first book in the series, but I'll have to give it another few months. Maybe when the inevitable next book in the series appears... It was a lot like the cliffhangers that let you know the serial continues next week or next season--unresolved personal and family issues that can be used to lead into another story.

    "a dud story from a usually stellar author"
    What disappointed you about Private: #1 Suspect?

    i couldn't get in to the story, and the naration was terrible.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    not sure at this point


    How could the performance have been better?

    narator replaced with someone who can do an authentic Irish accent, also someone who doesn't sound like he is straining himself.

    "This is why I read James Patterson Books"
    If you could sum up Private: #1 Suspect in three words, what would they be?

    Extreme Thrill Ride


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Morgan is the perfect protaganist because he is not perfect, he makes mistakes in his personal life but he is the best in the world at what he does.


    What does Scott Shepherd bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Shepherd is a great narrattor . Sometimes I forgot that only one person was reading.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Finding out about Colleen.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Patterson, I would love to read A Private/Mike Bennett mashup novel. Could we get one of those?
