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.

Great plot, interesting characters. The narrator is engaging, except when he tries to perform female characters, which is almost comical. Fortunately, the majority of the story revolved around male characters, so I was able to overlook it, but I would find it distracting if there was more dialogue by female characters.
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.
Rupert Degas should narrate all of Pattersons books.
I'm never disappointed with a book from J Patterson
I really like this Private series.
Didn't read print version
The strength of the women in the story
Yes, good as usual
Seeds of London
The twist in story was best part.
I am Audibly Addicted!
Great mystery! Can't go wrong with Patterson and the Private series is exciting to read. I hope the next one has more of Jack in it.
This is one of my favorites this year. Great story, the narrator did the accents perfectly. Very good.
I liked the twists and turns.
He does a wonderful job with the accents, both the UK and the US.
More Private and Private London please!!!
I would love to see Mr. Patterson write a novel on his own. His would be clones just don't have his magic.
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.
