The police can't help you....
Former Marine helicopter pilot Jack Morgan runs Private, a renowned investigation company with branches around the globe. It is where you go when you need maximum force and maximum discretion. The secrets of the most influential men and women on the planet come to Jack daily - and his staff of investigators uses the world's most advanced forensic tools to make and break their cases.
The press will destroy you....
Jack is already deep into the investigation of a multi-million dollar NFL gambling scandal and the unsolved slayings of 18 schoolgirls when he learns of a horrific murder close to home: his best friend's wife, Jack's former lover, has been killed. It nearly pushes him over the edge. Instead, Jack pushes back and devotes all of Private's resources to tracking down her killer.
Only one place to turn: Private....
But Jack doesn't have to play by the rules. As he closes in on the killer and chooses between revenge and justice, Morgan has to navigate a workplace love affair that threatens to blow the roof off his plans. With a plot that moves at death-defying speeds, Private is James Patterson's sleekest, most exciting thriller ever.

The twist and turns of the story.
All the different things happening at the same time.
Jack Morgan is an admirable man in this new series. It is one of my favorite series. I always look forward to James Patterson's books because he holds true to the core values that are important in life and makes the listener want to cheer on the good guys.
Jack Morgan seems to have no malice in his heart -even hating his brother is not something he would have chosen if his brother had given him any other way out. It makes me ponder the ever-present question of gentics - environmental - and the fact that people just come here a certain way from birth. I love having a hero (or 2) in a book.
His diction, inflections, and overall performance makes for pleasant listening
My heart ached for Jack Morgan at times - feeling the struggle of deep feelings - conflict of the ever present love, hate, and pain his brother and Father caused in him. I found the men that worked for Private had respect for & truly cared for each other.
In all of his books, it is very obvious that James Patterson is an honorable man. This is something that can only be taught through example by living it daily. It is a trait that is sadly missing in so much of the world we live in today. My hat's off to authors of exciting books that win by doing what it right.
I like Biblical Fiction, mysteries and action and adventure books
I love James Patterson and this book was no disappointment. I've read other "Private" novels so it was nice to go back and read the beginning.
I enjoy listening to great detective mysterie & also great thrillers. I enjoy books also by Vince Flynn, David Baldaci including assasins.
Jack's involvement with Noccia family.
I enjoyed his narration. I was able to picture the characters. I am sorry to see he is not narrating the series.
Jack being a brother!!
Very exciting series! You will not be disappointed. James Patterson does it again.
Yes it was entertaining and fun to listen to.
Great listen on my ride across the country. Kept me guessing up until the end. I liked it.
Enjoyed while I was listening. Drawn in but since completing the story it is somewhat forgetable and overshadowed by others.
Not the best but kept me interested to the end. A little predictable but not boring. Had a good base line
Connected Police Military and private sector. A great idea but it would never really happen
My first but i like him
Working on book 2 now
The story is such that you can't help but feel part of the story.
The plot was perfect as only James can do.
Peter Hermann read the book with feeling and emotion to bring each chapter into your life.
Perfect set. Well done James.
I really enjoyed this book. It is another good one from James Patterson, et al. The story line had 3 different murders working at the same time and they each had their drama and nail biting suspense. The author brings them all together ..... each with different outcomes. I love the Private cast of characters and have already downloaded the next 2 books in the sequence. I totally enjoyed listening to this book.
