The world’s most exclusive detective agency opens a new office – in Australia!
With the best detectives in the business, cutting edge technology and offices around the globe, there is no investigation company quite like Private. Now, at a glittering launch party overlooking the iconic Opera House, Private Sydney throws open its doors . . .
Craig Gisto and his newly formed team have barely raised their glasses, however, when a young Asian man, blood-soaked and bullet-ridden, staggers into the party, and what looks like a botched kidnapping turns out to be a whole lot more.
Within days the agency’s caseload is full. But it is a horrific murder in the wealthy Eastern Suburbs and the desperate search for a motive that stretches the team to the limit. Stacy Friel, friend of the Deputy Commissioner of NSW Police, isn’t the killer’s first victim – and as the bodies mount up she’s clearly not the last . . .
I never thought I’d read or listen to the Private series by James Patterson and his co-writers, but when I was faced with no audio book while driving all over town doing my errands I was desperate. I stopped at a local Hastings store and found this audio book on sale for a very good price and so bought it and continued running my errands while listening to the story unfold.
Miracle of miracles, I actually liked it, so, when I got home I looked on Overdrive to see if any were available and found a few and have since listened to three more. None of them are five stars but they are entertaining.
The premise of the stories are all about the same-some horrible crime occurs and Private is called into action to save the day. Like I said, it makes for an entertaining listen or read.
I recommend the series if you have an afternoon or evening with time on your hands.
