About this item

Chart-dominating author James Patterson launches a new series (with co-writer Maxine Paetro) with PRIVATE. Jack Morgan is familiar with dangerous and dirty work, having spent years in service of the CIA. That high-level work only partially prepares him for dramatics associated with private detection, however, when he takes over his father's Los Angeles agency. The business is booming, so Morgan jumps on board with a full case load: there's an unsolved multiple murder case, a pro sports gambling mess, and then his best friend's wife gets murdered. Amidst all this work, Morgan's extracurricular romantic entanglements further complicate things. This is classic Patterson--so readers can look forward to satiating their addiction with the sure-to-come sequels, as well as episodes of the television adaptation.
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.
