    "Patterson"

    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.

    "Typical Patterson..."
    Would you listen to Private: #1 Suspect again? Why?

    yes, there are many subplots to keep your attention


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    the plot was very good... not the best ever but good because you didn't know exactly how Jack would win...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Any book worth it's salt is worth listening to in one sitting and this is no exception

    "Not as good as Private!"

    Patterson is kind of like Pizza...even when it's bad, it's still pretty good! Book was still enjoyable and hard to put down.

    Story
    "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.
