Private London James Patterson & Mark Pearson Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars
Private goes on the hunt for London's most feared killer since Jack the Ripper.
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?

User reviews about this book
Hard to believe that this was written by a professional. Introduced to WAY too many characters, most of which had nothing to do with the confusing and poorly developed plot. Not a good look for Patterson... He should write it if he attaches his name to it.
What's Up With "Private?"
By Emily Bell
Why haven't you brought back Peter Knight from "London Games?" Especially since this one set in London. He was a great character. The best in all the Private books (with the exception of Jack Morgan). I like the idea of the series but think it hasn't come into its own yet.
Not up to standards
Jut not as we'll written as other Patterson novels. Too many twists and turns. Too confusing. Very disappointing.
I LovedThis Book!
I started reading this book and was so intrigued, I could not put it down! I just read it from start to finish!
Not worth it
I agree with the other reviews that say that this book is not up to par with James Patterson's earlier novels. This was a waste of my time and $$.
By Tara Cassese
I normally enjoy James Patterson books but Private London was one I did not. I was unable to follow the story and the characters. It was a disappointment.
This is the first book that I really did,nt care for.I have read many books that Patterson has written and could,nt put them down!This book was too complicated to read.Very disappointed!Ann lee
I have been very disappointed in Patterson's recent books. He needs to get back to the writing.
This book is convoluted to the point I have no idea who anyone is or how it all comes together. The Hamas has just come into this already mixed and mashed story. I will never know the ending because I'm done reading. I used to wait with anticipation for a new "James" but now I'm going to tread cautiously before purchasing any more. Really too bad.

A shame that Patterson no longer writes his own novels. Keep hoping for a great book but lately it's just not there. Nothing great here at all. Felt nothing about anyone. Cold and bloodless reading at its worst.
By Steve Arron 15
Started off really good with a great deal of action and heartbreak. There was basically two different problems going on in the story so it lost some zeal for me. Too many characters too that were brought in for a second then brought back chapters later felt like I needed to take notes. Too much at the end with regards to how the puzzle got put together and a bit unbelievable. Not his best but still enjoyable
