I enjoyed this book like I do with every James Patterson book. Now that I'm done with it, I don't remember why the woman was killed. Doesn't make sense to me. Maybe too rushed. Who knows. But a nice quick read. ( )

Very good. Couldn't stop listening to it! ( )

Jack Morgan has lived a complicated life and built a complex international security firm from his late father's legacy. Private manages to make the problems go away with an elite group of people who are diverse enough to fill every required gap. Jack has never been more grateful for that than now as he stands accused of murdering an ex-lover. The book moves along with Patterson's signature style - a solid read.

At first, there seemed to be some many cases going on that it was difficult to keep everything straight and figure out which personalities and cases were connected to which. As the novel progressed, I became more engrossed in the individual cases and of course, the main case where Jack's found his ex-girlfriend dead in his bed. The person or persons who set up Jack did a thorough job, and it was interesting to follow the case. I will definitely read another in the Private series. ( )

I've liked both books in this series so far. It's not the best writing, but at least it's a little different than the standard fare Patterson usually delivers. Read this one in one evening, so it can't be too bad. ( )

Unsolvable cases

Since former Marine Jack Morgan started Private, it has become the world's most effective investigation firm--sought out by the famous and the powerful to discreetly handle their most intimate problems. Private's investigators are the smartest, the fastest, and the most technologically advanced in the world--and they always uncover the truth.

Impossible murders

When his former lover is found murdered in Jack Morgan's bed, he is instantly the number one suspect. While Jack is under police investigation, the mob strong-arms him into recovering $30 million in stolen pharmaceuticals for them. And the beautiful manager of a luxury hotel chain persuades him to quietly investigate a string of murders at her properties.

The #1 suspect is Jack Morgan

While Jack is fighting for his life, one of his most trusted colleagues threatens to leave Private, and Jack realizes he is confronting the cleverest and most powerful enemies ever. With more action, more intrigue, and more twists than ever before, PRIVATE: #1 SUSPECT is James Patterson at his unstoppable best.
