Publisher's Summary

Private Berlin has the extraordinary pace and international sophistication that has powered The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Patterson's number-one best seller The Postcard Killers.

In Europe's most dangerous city....

Chris Schneider is a superstar agent at Private Berlin, Germany headquarters for the world's most powerful investigation firm. He keeps his methods secret as he tackles Private's most high-profile cases - and when Chris suddenly disappears, he becomes Private Berlin's most dangerous investigation yet.

An investigator is searching....

Mattie Engel is another top agent at Private Berlin, gorgeous and ruthlessly determined - and she's also Chris's ex. Mattie throws herself headfirst into finding Chris, following leads to the three people Chris was investigating when he vanished: a billionaire suspected of cheating on his wife, a soccer star accused of throwing games, and a nightclub owner with ties to the Russian mob. Any one of them would surely want Chris gone - and one of them is evil enough to want him dead.

And she's after more than the truth....

Mattie's chase takes her into Berlin's most guarded, hidden, and treacherous places, revealing secrets from Chris's past that she'd never dreamed of in the time they were lovers. On the brink of a terrifying discovery, Mattie holds on to her belief in Chris - in the face of a horror that could force all of Europe to the edge of destruction and chaos.

James Patterson has taken the European thriller to a masterful new level with Private Berlin, an adrenaline-charged, spectacularly violent and sexy novel with unforgettable characters of dark and complex depths. Private Berlin proves why Patterson is truly the world's number-one best-selling author.

    "Best in Private series "

    I really enjoyed this book. I was not as happy with the voices used in this book, but a lot better than the last in the series. This book has a great storyline and does not need much the character building for you to tie in every person mentioned in the book. Jack Morgan took another backseat in the plot, but added just enough content for you to know Private International was still his own.

    "Good story line - performance of readers poor"

    Loved storyline - reader kept speed reading which lost feeling and emotions necessary for a tragic well written story

    I teach middle level reading, consequently, I find myself reading Young Adult selections. Audible is my guilty pleasure!

    "Where is James Patterson?"

    James Patterson is one of my all time favorite writers. I'm a fan of his series works, including his work written for a teen audience. Patterson is my go to author because he writes a cohesive story whose plot is complex without being convoluted or confusing. Typically, characters are rich and well developed and in the end, which is usually a delightful surprise, conflicts make sense,but the opposite is true with this book and others in the series. The characters were boring, conflicts were expected and the end predictable. I should add, annoying pitch to narrators voice. It's as if Patterson gave his idea to a few students, who in turn wrote Private Berlin, which is fine as long as Patterson's name isn't listed as author. In fact, Each Private book, after Private London, could be a series and should be. The characters, apart from Jack Morgan, founder of Private, are flat and Morgan is background noise.
    Overall, frustrating experience.
    Borrow a copy from your library.
