I love the series. I cannot wait until the next one. It has outstanding story lines and unique characters. Never a dull moment. Must read!
Exciting, Edge of your Seat
great characters and inflection
Having worked in courtrooms for 20 years, I love true & fictional crime. In love with Cross & Davenport. Fictional lawyer stories rule.
PRIVATE by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro is a wonderful, engaging book. Scott Shepherd is a top-notch narrator!
Characters are always a plus and this set is are a great fit
Lost plot, which was the main plot or theme...
Keeps interested, and looking around the corners.
No place to run, no place to hide, Private #1 Suspect
Outstanding book..........can't wait for the next one. Maybe they will visit one of thier overseas
I purchased this book to assist in a 24 hour drive to Colorado, It kept me awake!!
Easy 'reading' ! Good suspence !
I would like to compare the style to Perry O'Shaunessy books.
Scott gives a good performance, easy to listen.
I do not think it is material for a film.
Perhaps, but I generally do not re-listen to books.
The story had numerous twists and turns which kept the readers interest. The plots were predictable, however.
Busting the van filled with drugs out of the warehouse.
No extreme reactions. I enjoyed the book but it wasn't a life changer.
I like James Patterson's writing but this wasn't his best. Not bad, but not his best.
Another multi-plot/case twist and turn. Our hero runs three cases and two women at once. Hard to imagine, but it's fiction and a fun listen.
First PRIVATE was sharp, moved at a good clip and had interesting charachters. This reads more like something the authors dashed off over a weekend to cash in on the success of the first book. Narrator was ok...little too affected for my taste, but he wasn't given a lot to work with. Great concept...a super detective agency with the best and brightest...made first book great. This failed the test on every score. Not sure I want to risk credits with any more in the series.
More interesting charachters. Women charachters, especially, were weak and predictable.
The whole sidebar about the mob.
Beware of sequels
