SOMETIMES WHEN THE NIGHTMARE ENDS – THE TERROR IS ONLY JUST BEGINNING
For Hannah Shapiro, a beautiful young American student, this particular nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when Jack Morgan, owner of Private – the world’s most exclusive detective agency – saved her from a horrific death. She has fled her country, but can’t flee her past. The terror has followed her to London, and now it is down to former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London, to save her all over again.
In central London, young women are being abducted off the street. When the bodies are found, some days later, they have been mutilated in a particularly mysterious way. Dan Carter’s ex-wife, DI Kirsty Webb, is involved in the investigation and it looks likely that the two cases are gruesomely linked.
Dan Carter draws on the whole resources of Private International in a desperate race against the odds. But the clock is ticking… Private may be the largest and most technologically advanced detection agency in the world, but the only thing they don’t have is the one thing they need – time.
This was the first book in the Private series that I listened to although I had listened to others during the normal routine of my days. This is the second in the series and it takes me longer to finish a book when I listen to it in the car because I don’t go out every day (almost, but not quite). Because I spent more time with these characters I came to know them more fully and really get a feel for them. Dan Cater came to be one of my favorites and I hope the author writes more with him in mind.
This story is fast paced, action packed, full of mystery and deception with a twist or two thrown in for good measure. A great story and I recommend this series and that’s one thing I never thought would say.
