Publisher's Summary

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.

    "Quick moving"

    Don't look for any deep meanings or sub plots. This one is pretty predictable. That being said, it moves quickly and the narration is very good.

    "Not a bad storyline but not enough depth."

    Storyline was predictable and only the main caricature had any depth. Not one of the best of the private series.

    "A Good Listen"

    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.

    "Not Patterson's best work"

    The story is somewhat hard to follow. Narrator does some really weird and distracting voices. But overall an entertaining listen :)

    "Private London kept me glued to my IPhone"

    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

    Story
    "Fun and fast read"
    Where does Private London rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I love these Private books, they are fun, fast to read and full of excitement, foreign places, etc....


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The plot was not what I expected which is unusual as I read a gazillion mysteries.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    All of them!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Will buy any Private book that comes out in the future.

    Story
    "Not worth the time"
    What would have made Private London better?

    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.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes...I am not a fan when the Narrator changes his/her voice too many times, for each character.
