The world's most exclusive detective agency opens a new office - in Australia!
With the best detectives in the business, cutting-edge technology, and offices around the globe, there is no investigation company quite like Private. Now, at a glittering launch party overlooking the iconic Opera House, Private Sydney throws open its doors.
Craig Gisto and his newly formed team have barely raised their glasses, however, when a young Asian man, blood-soaked and bullet-ridden, staggers into the party, and what looks like a botched kidnapping turns out to be a whole lot more.
Within days the agency's caseload is full. But it is a horrific murder in the wealthy Eastern Suburbs and the desperate search for a motive that stretches the team to the limit. Stacy Friel, friend of the Deputy Commissioner of NSW Police, isn't the killer's first victim - and as the bodies mount up she's clearly not the last.

Weak characters. Story consists of 3 plots that are not linked together. I wish the serial killer line has been more developed. The kidnapping angle was pathetic. Strong accent of narrator disturbed me a lot, but at least I improved my English listening skills..
I listen to a book a day just about. I am 49, I love mystery, thriller, true crime. G.Guidall best reader for me.
Weak story line, seems the writer lost his integrity. No mystery no thrills and insults the reader with a weak ending.james was good many moons ago but sold out at that time too
not as good as the others in the series.
no. would recommend the other books in the series.
all of it
get out another book and put this one away
I loved that they brought Justine in from the original Private.
I pretty much liked everything about this book. I like the character development. It makes me feel more for the characters and what they are going through in the book. This keeps me listening because I want to find out what happens next.
This was the first time I have heard Tim Wright read an audiobook, but I liked his performance. I would listen to other books that he reads.
I can't say that I had an "extreme" reaction to the book. I did not cry, but I did laugh a few times.

I have enjoyed the entire Private series, however I have come to realize trying to listen to this book is very challanging. The Ausie Tongue sounds so sexy at first - but for me trying to listen to this book is very hard. This is the first book I would recommend that someone not listen to - because of the thick Ausie accent and I think you may want to read the book instead.
Patterson (with the usual help) does it again, with a taut, compelling yarn from Australia, as Private opens another high tech, high tension location. Excellent set of characters, my favorite Darlene, head of the high-tech forensic operations. Would have rated narration higher, but the otherwise very good performer seemed to have a problem with the "s" in "she," when the word begins a sentence. He sounded as if he might be trying to avoid a sibilant sound, but "she" much too often sounded like "he," obviously somewhat confusing in a novel with both genders deeply involved.
I listen to or read all James Patterson's books but this one was too confusing, couldn't keep up with the characters, they seem to jump around quite a bit.

Loose the accents.
Read the book, maybe you can follow better without the horrible accents.
