The world's most exclusive detective agency opens a new office - in Australia!

With the best detectives in the business, cutting edge technology and offices around the globe, there is no investigation company quite like Private. Now, at a glittering launch party overlooking the iconic Opera House, Private Sydney throws open its doors . . .

Craig Gisto and his newly formed team have barely raised their glasses, however, when a young Asian man, blood-soaked and bullet-ridden, staggers into the party, and what looks like a botched kidnapping turns out to be a whole lot more.

Within days the agency's caseload is full. But it is a horrific murder in the wealthy Eastern Suburbs and the desperate search for a motive that stretches the team to the limit. Stacy Friel, friend of the Deputy Commissioner of NSW Police, isn't the killer's first victim - and as the bodies mount up she's clearly not the last . . .

Very disappointed with this one. Story lines lacked focus and were hard to follow.

Disappointed - the book lacked something - still OK but could have been much better.

Okay to pass an evening with. I don't expect more than a lightweight, quick read from this author, and I like to read such books after reading something more complex to give my mind a rest. Kind of like eating a cupcake after a roast beef dinner.

After awhile Patterson becomes redundant. I think I keep getting his books because they're easy reads and free at the library. His books are ok but nothing really new or earth shattering. Patterson seems pretty superficial. The serial killer is described as "piss ugly" at one point and of course those who work at Private are drop dead gorgeous or drive ritzy cars. In other books, Patterson has characters eating foie gras which is made by shoving food down the throats of ducks to the point that their liver all but explodes. I've come to like Patterson and his primadonna characters less and less. Maybe this is what happens when you churn out book after book after book. A vanilla product.
