Impossible murders

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

    "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?

    No....I just hope James Patterson puts a little more time between releases giving him the time needed to produce the caliber of books he has produced in the past.......
