Private's investigators are the smartest, the fastest, and the most technologically advanced in the world--and they always uncover the truth.
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.
The #1 suspect is Jack Morgan
While Jack is fighting for his life, one of his most trusted colleagues threatens to leave Private, and Jack realizes he is confronting the cleverest and most powerful enemies ever. With more action, more intrigue, and more twists than ever before, Private: #1 Suspect is James Patterson at his unstoppable best.

I enjoyed this mystery. I don't think I've read too many of James Patterson's before but after listening to this one I may read/listen to more. If you enjoy a good suspenseful book this will entertain you.
It was really well read and enjoyed very much
Tells the story with so much emotion
Just really interesting
I really love the twists and turns of the Private gang in their pursuit for answers for their clients and I enjoy all of the characters especially the flawed Jack Morgan! But I have to say it was a bit difficult finding a connection to Jack in #1 Suspect with the new narrator. I kept thinking to myself this isn't how the real Jack Morgan (narrated by Peter Hermann) would say things . I have to admit for me it took away some of the enjoyment of the story but overall I enjoyed the plot.
This was my first James Patterson book. Not a story that held my interest. Story was much too drawn out. Too Many chapters, lost site of the story for all the announcements of the next chapter.
Shorten story, delete two thirds of the chapters.
No real problem with Scott Shepherd's performance.
Too many to remember.
I will not be a James Patterson fan in the future. Even my wife who is a James Patterson fan was disgusted with the announcements of the chapters just when you were getting into the story.
I have completed both the Alex Cross and Women's Murder Club series so I enjoy James Patterson. I thoroughly enjoyed Private and will continue the next two books in the series.
This is one of Patterson's slowest moving book I've ever read. I continually thought I would stop listening because it was boring. But I like Patterson and Paetro and was really hoping it would pick up soon. It finally did, but - I was already disappointed by that time.
Only if you can make it more inspiring, faster moving and less boring.
I am a retired RN in New York State and love, lobe, love James Patterson books!
Good story but a little more gruesome than usual. Private #1 better.
The story got much more intriquing as it went along. Love James Patterson.
Only book of ghis I did not enjoy was Swimsuit. Much too gorey.
yes, there are many subplots to keep your attention
the plot was very good... not the best ever but good because you didn't know exactly how Jack would win...
Any book worth it's salt is worth listening to in one sitting and this is no exception
Some stories are just better than others.
I just like the Cross stories and Murder club stories better.
Jack, I guess.
Just not that impressed with this book. I listened to the whole thing . . .
