In James Patterson's #1 bestselling Private series, the world's most exclusive detective agency hunts London's most mysterious killer.
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?

Was ok but not great he wrote better novels

the Private series is good, but the plots are pretty much all the same, with names and locations changed. Not Patterson's best work in my opinion

If you're new to Patterson and want to start on a high, pick this.

The Private series uses a handful of co-authors and the same stable of core characters set in international locations to heighten the intrigue. Sometimes it works ok, (Private, #1 Suspect), sometimes its awful (Private India) and sometimes it cannot be out down, as in Private London.

I can only guess that the chemistry between writers is as variable as the weather but here with Mark Pearson Patterson gets it right. You will to put this down, you will not be disappointed and you will be surprised.

Trying Patterson for the first time? Start in London.

This was a fun read. It was fast-paced, and although it was totally unbelievable that was part of what made it fun

Confusing - too many characters. I ended up bored with the whole thing and didn't even finish.

Not a bad read although kind of predictable!

The 4th in the private series is as
good as the 1st 3, not up to 5 stars
but enjoyable just the same.
Maybe less characters or plot
may have helped.

Found it disappointing and not up to the standard I expect from James Patterson.

Confused on all story lines! So many things going on, so many characters, and the occasional British terms....kinda bugged me. My least favourite in the Private series.
