*12th book this year. I am so going to pass last year's reading!! :-)
You know I L.O.V.E. James Patterson books and this is the newest one out. Apparently he is starting a new series. (I am ready for another Alex Cross, but he didn't ask me!) Anyway...I liked it, of course, but I did get a little lost in all the characters. There were too many for my liking and between that and several plots (cases), I had to stop and think a few times about what was going on. But I would read the next one in this series...I think I like it better than the Bennett series he has out.
Here's a quick summary from jamespatterson.com & then on to a real post: :-)
The police can't help you
Former CIA agent Jack Morgan runs Private, a renowned investigation company with branches around the globe. It is where you go when you need maximum force and maximum discretion. The secrets of the most influential men and women on the planet come to Jack daily—and his staff of investigators use the world's most advanced forensic tools to make and break their cases.
The press will destroy you
Jack is already deep into the investigation of a multimillion-dollar NFL gambling scandal and the unsolved slayings of eighteen schoolgirls when he learns of a horrific murder close to home: his best friend's wife, Jack's former lover, has been killed. It nearly pushes him over the edge. Instead, Jack pushes back and devotes all of Private's resources to tracking down her killer.
Only one place to turn: Private
But Jack doesn't have to play by the rules. As he closes in on the killer and chooses between revenge and justice, Jack has to navigate a workplace love affair that threatens to blow the roof off his plans. With a plot that moves at death-defying speeds, Private is James Patterson's sleekest, most exciting thriller ever.
