Publisher's Summary

Unsolvable cases

Since former Marine Jack Morgan started Private, it has become the world's most effective investigation firm--sought out by the famous and the powerful to discreetly handle their most intimate problems. Private's investigators are the smartest, the fastest, and the most technologically advanced in the world--and they always uncover the truth.

Impossible murders

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.

    "Patterson has done it again"

    This is another excellent story by one of the greatest authors of our time. Well written, fast moving, and great suspense. Highly recommended

    "Totally disappointed"
    What disappointed you about Private: #1 Suspect?

    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.


    What could James Patterson and Maxine Paetro have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Shorten story, delete two thirds of the chapters.


    What didn’t you like about Scott Shepherd’s performance?

    No real problem with Scott Shepherd's performance.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Private: #1 Suspect?

    Too many to remember.


    Any additional comments?

    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.

    "Good read (listen)."

    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.

    "SLOW MOVING"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Shepherd’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Don't know.


    Do you think Private: #1 Suspect needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Only if you can make it more inspiring, faster moving and less boring.

    "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

    Some stories are just better than others.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    I just like the Cross stories and Murder club stories better.


    Which character ??? as performed by Scott Shepherd ??? was your favorite?

    Jack, I guess.


    Could you see Private: #1 Suspect being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No.

    The plo moved fast, but not too fast and was very interesting.


    What about Scott Shepherd???s performance did you like?

    Easy voice to listen to.


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

    Yes

    "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.
