Publisher's Summary

From the world's number one best-selling author comes the newest book in the blockbuster Private series....

Santosh Wagh quit his job as head of Private India after harrowing events in Mumbai almost got him killed. But Jack Morgan, global head of the world's finest investigation agency, needs him back. Jack is setting up a new office in Delhi, and Santosh is the only person he can trust.

Still battling his demons, Santosh accepts, and it's not long before the agency takes on a case that could make or break them. Plastic barrels containing dissolved human remains have been found in the basement of a house in an upmarket area of South Delhi. But this isn't just any house; this property belongs to the state government.

With the crime scene in lockdown and information suppressed by the authorities, delving too deep could make Santosh a target to be eliminated.

False advertising

I liked the initial book in the Private series. This book, however, is one where James Patterson put his name on something to get it published. It is an Indian book with Indian customs and characters. The narrator is at times hard to understand. While there is nothing wrong with a book about India, I feel I was mislead by Patterson's name and the description of the book. I'm only 5 chapters in and would return it if I could

Horrible!!!!

This book is a disappointment. The narrator makes it impossible to hear the story. I listened for about 1 hour and gave up. I love the series. Sooo ridiculously BAD!!! A true waste of money.

Very Disappointing for the Private series

I was very disappointed in this book. I love the Private series, but this story fell flat. I never connected with any of the characters and never got a feel for India. Other than comments on traffic, it could have been set anywhere. In addition, the narrator was terrible. I appreciated the Indian accent, but his female, children and American accents were chalkboard grating. Unless you really love the Private series, save your credit.

Great Narration

I hesitated to download this book because of early reviews, but they were wrong. The narration was appropriate to the story and well executed. It’s also a great story!

Narrator goes way over the top!

The story isn’t bad, and the narrator’s voice is fine when he’s just reading content from the book. However, when he starts reciting dialogue from the characters, he goes so far over the top that i’m regularly laughing even though it might be a serious topic. It really affects the enjoyment of the book

Horrible audio...

I never write reviews. I understand the intent behind the accents but the audio was horrible. I couldn’t even follow the plot because of how distracting the readers attempts are. Returning it...immediately.

Terrible 'reader'

I struggled to finish because the reader was so bad. I could tell the men from the women. When two people were in a conversation you couldn't tell who was talking which made the storyline very difficult to follow.

Can’t finish it...

I agree with the other reviews—the narrator makes the story difficult to follow. I bought the book based on the previous stories in the series without first reading the reviews. My mistake. I wish I could get my credit back!
