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.

    "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.

    Story
    "Exceptional read"
    What made the experience of listening to Private London the most enjoyable?

    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.


    Have you listened to any of Rupert Degas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    A first, but we shall look for his name.

    "Kept Me Guessing & Held My Interest"
    What made the experience of listening to Private London the most enjoyable?

    The narrator was able to create distinct multiple characters that made it seem like listening to a story read by a cast.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Private London?

    The shock revelation.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The sense of betrayal of a young woman.

    "Pretty good "read!""
    Would you listen to Private London again? Why?

    Yes, it was fast-paced and kept adding twists and turns to keep things moving and kept my interest throughout.


    What does Rupert Degas bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His pace, accent and presentation make the book come alive.


    Any additional comments?

    Would recommend this book for light reading!

    "Boring!"

    Too much detail and a Very Predicable story. This is the kind of writing that started people staying away from Patterson. Don'y easte a credit.

    "Another great one for Patterson"

    Private London ranks only second to Patterson's Private book about the London Olympics. Just when I think he has to be burning out, he hits another homer!
