Publisher's Summary

Money. Betrayal. Murder.

That's a Private conversation.

Hired to protect a visiting American woman, Private Johannesburg's Joey Montague is hoping for a routine job looking after a nervous tourist. After the apparent suicide of his business partner, he can't handle much more. But this case is not what it seems - and neither is his partner's death.

Narrator ruins this book.

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Keeping in mind that it is a short story, then I think the plot is interesting and enjoyable. I would enjoy more about this branch of Private.

How could the performance have been better?

His accent was terrible - to the point that it was almost unintelligible in spots. His American accent portions were well done, but Joey's dialog was unpleasant.

Private gold

Throughly enjoyed the book as I have done all of Patterson's books I was not as impressed with the narrator as with some of the others but the plot was as riveting as always.

Too short!

What would have made Private: Gold better?

NOT make it a very short story...develope the characters and location like everyother Private novel

What was most disappointing about James Patterson and Jassy Mackenzie ’s story?

I can't believe the story was only 2 hours long...total injustice to the series

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

Story had great opportunity to go to a new part of the Private world

Awful!

The best part of this book was that I only suffered for less than Three hours. Worst Patterson book ever. Amateurish, formulaic, juvenile.

Ugh

I love James P but this was the dumbest book he's ever penned. A quick release with zero substance. You're better than that James. Don't bother with this one.

Ok story

When I purchased this book, I didn't realize it's a short novel. Given that it was meant to be a really quick read, I guess it was ok. Great premise. Very predictable though.

Really disappointing amateurish piece.

Would you try another book from James Patterson and Jassy Mackenzie and/or Robert Petkoff?

Don't do another like this.

What could James Patterson and Jassy Mackenzie have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

How about a less predictable plot?

How could the performance have been better?

Hard to do a good job with poor material.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Private: Gold?

All of them.

Any additional comments?

I want a refund.
