I have not read Patterson before. And after this book I won´t be reading more. A lot of fluff punctuated by a so so plot. Nothing new or surprising here. ( )

The second book in the private series that I have read. I'm currently on a James Patterson marathon. This book is OK. I quite liked it. It was fast paced and mostly easy to follow. As mentioned in previous reviews of this book, there is so much going on though. It all takes place in just over 48 hours but so much occurs in that time. However the tell tale Patterson short chapters soon have me hooked and I finished it in a short time. I will be reading the next few in series as I already have them. ( )

Decent book, not great though. Get it from the library instead of purchasing. ( )

Nice who done it plot with many twists. Interesting lead character with other characters well developed. ( )

Really wasn't that impressed with this book in the series. It took me a while to work my way thru it because it really did not hold my interest. ( )

Book description
Private goes on the hunt for London's most feared killer since Jack the Ripper.

For Hannah Shapiro, a young American student, the nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when the owner of Private--the world's most exclusive detective agency--saved her from a horrific death. Now, after eight years, the terror follows her to London. The only man who can help is former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London.

In London, young women are being abducted and their bodies found mutilated in a grotesque, mysterious way. Carter's ex-wife, DI Kirsty Webb, leads the investigation into these brutal murders, which may somehow be linked to Hannah Shapiro.

Working together, the two investigators are caught in a desperate race against the odds. Private may be the most advanced detection agency in the world...but can they catch a predator who rivals London's most elusive killer ever?
