    At the end of Chapter 108, (this man writes in incredibly short breathy chapters and there are tons of them), Patterson has his hero saying, on being asked if he is ready for a fight, 'I resisted the temptation to say that I was born ready '. Throughout this novel I think it is probably the only hard man/tough guy cliche he does resist. Every cocky, cool, hip or wanky (choose your term) phrase that has ever passed the lips of a cocky, cool, hip, wanky bloke passes this wanker's lips (oops sorry [...]

    I hate writing negative reviews, but the characters in this book were just not likeable. Only a few were even remotely enjoyable to read about. It was like reading the characters of Jaws, the characters were very unsympathetic. Which is a shame because the crime plot on the serial killer was not bad at all; it was the characters that tanked the book for me. My quick and simple overall: just did not connect with the characters.

    the second crime book I've read and loved it. There were a few twists I didn't see coming and then there were things I suspected. It's a hard book to put down

    Loving this series wish he could bring more out where private is set around the world

    Forgot how good this book is.

    I did not like London.I liked Jack. I did not like Dan.Jack is smooth (book one). Dan is cocky (and wronga lot).Too many characters and threads being pulled and maneuvered to get any real grip on this story. Very thin writing led to unsatisfying conclusions and a story wrapped up quickly, but was complicated getting there.I listened to this on audio and it did nothing to enhance my interest. Most likely not the narrator's fault. Let's leave that to the writer himself.

    Plot twist after plot twist. I absolutely loved it! I loved the new characters, I loved the story, and I loved the conclusion. I cannot wait to read more from the London office! Until then I'll have to find myself a copy of Private Berlin to see how the German team does!

    Private London ReviewI’m not through with this book yet, but felt compelled to review it anyway. And I’m sorry, but this will not be a favorable review. If you’re a fan of the Private series – stop reading now.Although I am not an avid reader of James Patterson novels, I do like his novels, particularly the Alex Cross series and the Women’s Murder Club. So, I feel I’m acquainted with his style. That said, I think the only thing about this particular book that reeks of James Patterson [...]

    I listened to the audiobook and was not all that impressed with the book at all. Perhaps it is just me, or Patterson's co-author in this series is just not grabbing me. I said it after book 1, but really, this series should stop sooner than later as it just does not have the grip that his others do.It could be the reader, I suppose, but I am not feeling the plot as much as I do with the other series, particularly WMC and AC.Poor storyline and character development, as well as presentation stop n [...]

    Did you enjoy James Patterson's first novel in the Private series featuring Jack Morgan - an ex-military turned Private Investigator . Since the first book, where Jack decided to go into the Private Eye business , we have read in Private London that his business has boomed and there are now offices all around the world. The second book in the series "Private London" takes us to his London office where Jack has employed another ex-military cop called Dan Carter , as a New Zealander this made me c [...]

    Does anyone else feel like James Patterson and his cohorts have become the Mills and Boon of the thriller genre? Churning out thinly researched books as fast as they can, with little regard for quality or consistency. This particular novel is based around the flawed premise that a private firm would have the reach, resources and forensics capabilities above and beyond a government funded security organisation (MI5, CIA, FBI etc). The first book in the series was ok, this time I didn't buy it. Ap [...]

    So this is my first Patterson book I read. Well, I did read the Maximum Ride manga series. But having read read a Patterson book, this would be it then. And it was a very promising start in me wanting to check his other series.I started reading this one, not knowing its part of a series. But once I started the first page, I kept going. I also liked the pace and where the story was going.The chapters while short, kept the suspense interesting. Same with the characters, what with one case happenin [...]

    3.5 Stars. An enjoyable read. An intriguing abduction takes place in London, and it turns out to have a quite unforeseen reason for the abduction. On top of this we also have a serial murderer on the loose, whose signature is chopping the third finger off! This is a good light read, as usual with James Patterson, with short sharp chapters and a plot that moves quickly. If you are looking for an in-depth plot and great characterisation this isn't the book for you, but it is a good break from book [...]

    This was such a smooth read, I couldn't stop. I barreled through the 364 pages like a maniac reader on a rampage. Former Royal Military Police officer Dan Carter, now working for the worldwide powerhouse private detective firm of Private is given charge of college student Hannah Shapiro. He is to take her to London from the USA so she can go to college. His college grad god-daughter Chloe is to enroll in classes and pretend to be a student when she is really helping watch Hannah.Years earlier at [...]

    Think of Private London (Dan Carter) as Private's (Jack Morgan) not as smart or as charming younger brother. Private London is a sub part of the Private Organization. It is run by Dan Carter, a former royal military police sergeant, who is even more closed off and private than world Private leader Jack Morgan. Jack trusts Dan to keep an eye on Hannah Shaprio, the daughter of one of Private's top clients, who Jack has saved before. Of course, Dan screws up and Hannah is again kidnapped. In anothe [...]

    Lots of twist and turns! Very much enjoyed this book, with some new characters, new location, and same agency. I do hope that we get to see some of them return in other books of the series. I know this series jumps around locations a lot, but one can still hope.

    Yikes! If I had to sum Private London up in just one word - that word would have to be 'ludicrous'. I am a big fan of James Patterson and though I know it wasn't written by him it does come from his stable of writings, coauthored by Mark Pearson as it is. So, surely James must carry some of the responsibility for this travesty. Spoiler alert!!!!!I listened to the audio version of this story. First off, we come across the narrator who plays Dan Carter our 'hero' for want of a better word. He must [...]

    The Private series by James Patterson is really turning out to be multiple series that are all tied to Private International, a private investigative firm with office in major cities all across the globe. This is the second novel in the series that focuses on the London branch, which is managed by Iraq War veteran Dan Carter. The previous volume had him and his team working to save the London Olympics from terrorists.In this volume, Dan is dealing with a kidnapping of a college-aged girl named H [...]

    Lynn
    I'm still not sure about this whole venture of James Patterson's of using different foreign authors for each book in the Private series. It's hard for me to put this into words, but the feel of the repeat characters seems to change from book to book, and of course, the whole tone and writing style of the book, depending on who wrote it. This doesn't work well in a series. Again, in Private London, it's as if Patterson lent his name only to the book, and it was completely written by Mark Pearson. [...]

    Marcia
    I have enjoyed the other "Private" books, but this is an exception. Basically, it had TOO MUCH! Within one novel of less than 400 pages, Pearson skims over kidnapping, murder, insane medical personnel, terrorism, and betrayal--TOO MUCH! One major plot is piled upon a previous one. Little is resolved except for a very brief summary at the end. I also object to Pearson's too casual grammar, which has many fragments and dangling modifiers that force the reader to re-read parts. The very short chapt [...]

    Disappointed. Not impressive enough. Confusing. Doesn't make an impact on a reader like me.Above is the summary that I feel suited enough for Private London. To make it worse, those 116 chapters are short and there are actually two different cases in the book (I can’t understand how this is connected and is granted the permission to combine it together – ah, wait, I just don’t care anymore as I was too derange with the ‘scenes-gone-short’).Worth mentioning, I don’t know who’s who; [...]

    DISCLAIMER: THIS IS AN HONEST, HIGHLY SUBJECTIVE, AND MAY CONTAIN SPOILER REVIEW. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.I don't like the writing style and yes, I know it wasn't James Patterson who wrote it. The book needs a lot of editing as well. Admittedly, it was an easy read. The book has two non-correlated plots. One plot is confusing, another plot isn't making any sense. Overall, all I got is dissatisfaction. This book can be read as stand-alone, completely independent from other books in the series.Read o [...]

    This book was okay but not up to the quality of the last few books I read.

    Rob Cook
    Another exciting page turner from Patterson and friend. I preferred the story, location and characters in this to the original Private book although I did find the confrontation with the main villain very brief and many of the character's stories were finished off by easy one liners. Hopefully these might be picked up in a future book?

    Alyson Kent
    I'm not too sure what I just read. So the two cases weren't really related to each other despite what the blurb says? So many characters I kind of forgot who was who as I went, and I'm still not 100% sure I understood one of the cases and how it was solved other than it involved a child pornography ring.

    Sarah Campbell
    I wasn't as drawn into this as I was by Private. Nor did I realise this is the fourth in the series! God I'm slow! I hate reading anything out of order I'm weird like that. But still I felt the plot was easy to guess too. I did like Dan. His ex wife is a tad bit over the top with the jealousy with miss chambers. I liked the book I just didn't love it.

    Shelley Giusti
    Book 4 had me on the edge of my seat with a twist I didn't see coming.

    Mark
    This book was alot better than the first book in this series, which to be honest isn't really saying much as I thought the first book in the Private series was one of the worst books that James Patterson has ever penned. The only reason I gave this book a go was because it was a James Patterson and I read as much of his work as possible, so if it wasn't for that fact I wouldn't have given this a chance after reading the first Private novel. Despite not being as bad as it's predocessor this book [...]
