The next explosive book in James Patterson's number-one best-selling Private series!
For Hannah Shapiro, a beautiful young American student, this particular nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when Jack Morgan, owner of Private - the world's most exclusive detective agency - saved her from a horrific death. She has fled her country, but can't flee her past. The terror has followed her to London, and now it is down to former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London, to save her all over again.
In central London, young women are being abducted off the street. When the bodies are found some days later, they have been mutilated in a particularly mysterious way. Dan Carter's ex-wife, DI Kirsty Webb, is involved in the investigation and it looks likely that the two cases are gruesomely linked.
Dan Carter drawn on the whole resources of Private International in a desperate race against the odds. But the clock is ticking....
Private may be the largest and most technologically advanced detection agency in the world, but the one thing they don't have is the one thing they need--time.

This one was engaging. I thought it was better than private games. It had some good twists and was easier to follow than others in the Private series.
I did not want to put my IPhone down. I needed a trip so I could enjoy non stop listening to this book. I can't wait to finish the rest of the series
Sometimes a bit difficult to follow...the narrator is easy to follow but the story sometimes is not but overall it's ok
Yes, it's decent enough if my friend wants to pass the time.
Not one particulate thing.
I love these Private books, they are fun, fast to read and full of excitement, foreign places, etc....
The plot was not what I expected which is unusual as I read a gazillion mysteries.
All of them!
Will buy any Private book that comes out in the future.
I have loved the Private series up to this point but I couldn't even finish this book. The story line seemed to jump around and it was hard to follow. Maybe it you read on listened to in one sitting it would have been easier to get through.
Yes...I am not a fan when the Narrator changes his/her voice too many times, for each character.
This was an easy read. The story line was a little predictable but still worth the read.
When he killed the professor.
Great story, but the salient feature was the reader. His characters' voices were unique and consistent. His volume level was perfect; too many readers tend to lower their voices, which may be fine in a house, but can be frustrating in a car. One character used the "F" word, which we would prefer not to hear. Otherwise, riveting and well done.
A first, but we shall look for his name.
The narrator was able to create distinct multiple characters that made it seem like listening to a story read by a cast.
The shock revelation.
The sense of betrayal of a young woman.
