GIVEAWAY AND REVIEW OF PRIVATE BY J. PATTERSON AND M. PAETRO

 
PrivateThe 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 uses 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 multi-million dollar NFL gambling scandal and the unsolved slayings of 18 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, Morgan 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 sleekest, most exciting thriller ever.

About the Authors- 

ames Patterson has had more New York Times bestsellers than any other writer, ever, according to Guinness World Records. Since his first novel won the Edgar Award in 1976, James Patterson's books have sold more than 170 million copies. He is the author of the Alex Cross novels, the most popular detective series of the past twenty-five years, including Kiss the Girls and Along Came a Spider. Mr. Patterson also writes the bestselling Women's Murder Club novels, set in San Francisco, and the top-selling New York detective series of all time, featuring Detective Michael Bennett. He writes full-time and lives in Florida with his family.
Maxine Paetro is the author of three novels, two works of nonfiction, and the coauthor of seven books with James Patterson. She lives in New York with her husband.

My Thoughts-

I have never read any of the other books that M. Paetro has coauthored with Mr. Patterson before. I did like Jack Morgan and all of the crazy gadgets that he used. I have found that most of Patterson's books are very quick paced and I had some trouble keeping up with the action in this book. I did not find any surprises or the usual twists and turns throughout the book. I have always been a fan of Mr. Patterson's books and I will continue to read them in the future. Maybe the next installment in the series, will  help me understand the direction that he is taking in series. In regards to the Audibook,  I feel that Peter Hermann did an great job reading the book.  I was able to determine what character was speaking at the time and I was able to feel their emotions.
