Publisher's Summary

Paris is burning - and only Private's Jack Morgan can put out the fire.

When Jack Morgan stops by Private's Paris office, he envisions a quick hello during an otherwise relaxing trip filled with fine food and sightseeing. But Jack is quickly pressed into duty after a call from his client, Sherman Wilkerson, asking Jack to track down his young granddaughter, who is on the run from a brutal drug dealer.

Before Jack can locate her, several members of France's cultural elite are found dead - murdered in stunning, symbolic fashion. The only link between the crimes is a mysterious graffiti tag. As religious and ethnic tensions simmer in the City of Lights, only Jack and his Private team can connect the dots before the smoldering powder keg explodes.

    "Could've been an entertaining few hours..."
    Any additional comments?

    I didn't purchase this book thinking it was fine literature. I bought this book for the same reason I sometimes hangout in drugstores and buy cheap makeup...its a mindless way to spend time and enjoy myself. I would say 'mission accomplished' except that I had to force myself to finish this, while trying not to gag over the performance!

    Unlike other reviewers, I actually loved Mark Sullivan's French accents! And not a little because when he spoke in female voices, or foreign voices he spoke like a normal human being. When the performance called for an english speaking male or ESPECIALLY when it turned to describing the thoughts of Major Sauvage...Mr. Sullivan turned on this nauseating, cheesy 'movie trailer' voice! You know the one...breathy, raspy growl stretched out at the end of every sentence. At first I thought, "They're kidding, right? Maybe this is going to turn out to be a soap opera on the television?" No, not kidding.
    And there were moments where some added, cheesy background music just made it SO difficult to enjoy.
    I almost returned it several times.

    "Disappointing for a Patterson novel"

    Having heard or read ( mostly audible) nearly all Patterson novels, I was disappointed with the Private Paris selection. I had enjoyed the original "Private" and one other, I, plus others w/ the same main character, I expected a great story line. This one was multiplex, jumbled, ebbing and flowing, and inconsistent as a comparison novel and theme. It seemed as if the writer/ writers had become bored with the story line(s) but felt that it still needed to b a certain length for pages or tape! I became more bored than it seemed that they did!
    I haven't given up , at all, on Patterson et al, but I doubt I'll pick another "Private...." One. There are too many good adventure, spy, thriller audiobooks out there by my favorite writers. And, then, it also seems that Patterson is churning out nearly one new story a month--- whether full length or these new 'mini-books'. Maybe Private Paris should have been a MINI story: Private Mini-Paris !

    "Best Private Yet!"

    I have read all the books in the Private series and enjoyed them all. However, Private Paris is as good as the first book in the series. For starters it features Jack Morgan as the main character. I have missed Jack lately as he has only appeared as a minor character in many of the recent Private books. Also, I didn't figure out the motives of the terrorists and enjoyed the surprise. In addition, I loved that Jack met someone that captured his attention and didn't spend the book moping around regretting his relationship with Jessica didn't work out. That was a recurring theme that was getting annoying; so hopefully he has moved on.

    "Loved all OTHER Private novels"

    Characters were undeveloped, didn't really care what happened to them--descriptors didn't tie me in or allow me to "see" actually sending it back, which I never do!

    "It's just Ridiculous"
    What disappointed you about Private Paris?

    The plot was ridiculous, the situation in the real world is very serious. This novel takes advantage of a horrible situation. If I could give zero stars I would.


    Has Private Paris turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I love mystery books, this is not a mystery but a political statement. The only turn off I have is with James Patterson. I will NEVER bother with another of his books.


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

    Have not heard Jay Snyder before. He did a good job with the material he was given.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The performance.

    "EXCELLENT!!! TWISTS & TURNS APLENTY!!"

    This audible book was very good! Not as many mini stories going on at the same time though. I loved the setting - Paris, and the main characters, and the storyline. However, at times I forgot where I was in the story.. So maybe a bit difficult to follow then some of his previous "Private" series. On the whole, a good listen.
