Private is a detective agency, so not surprisingly there are three story lines running at the same time all revolving around different cases. Throw into the mix Jack Morgan’s personal life and you have an interesting story.

Private is told in the third person narrative from the various different characters, with the main protagonist being Jack Morgan, the owner of Private, a very high end PI firm. James Patterson co-wrote this book with Maxine Paetro, but some people suspect that Mr Patterson did little of the writing, I am not familiar with his work, since this is the first book of his that I have read, but I did enjoy the story.

The beginning of this book really caught my attention.  I liked the introduction of the main character Jack Morgan and I liked how his story unfolded. At times I thought the story was disjointed and jumped around too much and I had difficulty following all the characters, but overall I enjoyed the book. Each separate case that the firm was working on was intriguing.  I liked how the clues were slowly revealed and then followed upon.

This is a standalone story which came to a satisfying ending. I enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see what Jack is going to get up to next.
