Book Review: Private and Private Suspect #1

 
 
It happened again....I ran out of books to read on my Kindle so I had to turn to Amazon for more.
 
I searched and looked over the top rated lists but nothing really peaked my interest.  I decided to turn back to James Patterson since it's been a while since I had read anything of his.  I wanted something other than an Alex Cross book and I found a highly rated book in the Jack Morgan series.  The first book that I bought and read really fast was simply called, Private.
 
The police can't help you
Former Marine helicopter pilot 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.
 
I loved the multiple cases in the book and the fast paced action satisfied a craving of adventure and danger.
 
After reading the first book in the Jack Morgan series I went back for more.  I purchased and read Private #1 Suspect just as quickly as I did this first book. 
 
Unsolvable casesSince former Marine Jack Morgan started Private, it has become the world's most effective investigation firm--sought out by the famous and the powerful to discreetly handle their most intimate problems. Private's investigators are the smartest, the fastest, and the most technologically advanced in the world--and they always uncover the truth.
Impossible murders
When his former lover is found murdered in Jack Morgan's bed, he is instantly the number one suspect. While Jack is under police investigation, the mob strong-arms him into recovering $30 million in stolen pharmaceuticals for them. And the beautiful manager of a luxury hotel chain persuades him to quietly investigate a string of murders at her properties.
The #1 suspect is Jack Morgan
While Jack is fighting for his life, one of his most trusted colleagues threatens to leave Private, and Jack realizes he is confronting the cleverest and most powerful enemies ever. With more action, more intrigue, and more twists than ever before, PRIVATE: #1 SUSPECT is James Patterson at his unstoppable best.
 
Although there are more Private books these two are the only Jack Morgan books for now. 
 
I am currently reading Private Berlin and it's getting good but still hasn't really sucked me in yet.  I hope it does soon otherwise I might be a little disappointed after being so happy with the first couple Private books.
