Review: Private: #1 Suspect

Editorial Review - Bookreporter.com - Joe Hartlaub

If you are ignoring the Private series due to some sort of preconceived notions about anything or anyone connected with the project, you are making a regrettable error. Between the covers of the first two books (PRIVATE and the newly released #1 SUSPECT) is some of James Patterson's best work to date. Maxine Paetro, who has done yeoman's work as coauthor of the Women's Murder Club novels, has been ... Read full review

While admittedly I've been a little disappointed in the last few Patterson books I've read and while this wasn't one of those that I rambled on and on about how great or how crappy it was to my friends, I did enjoy it. It was a good read just not awesome. It wasn't one of those that you read from start to finish in one seating but I did enjoy the fast paced action and the multiple cases going on, though they did seem to wrap up rather effortlessly. Not much in the way of a twisted surprise ending either.
I try not to get hung up on the fact that it is a JAMES PATTERSON book but admittedly I do enjoy his older Alex Cross books, that weren't co-authored much better. I've been wanting to read his Women's Murder Club series but as I loved the TV show and these are co-authored books, I thought I'd leave it till the show fades a bit more from my memory. Once reading a series I kinda have a picture in my mind of the characters and don't want to mess with the Lindsey Boxer image. Alex Cross will always be Morgan Freeman to me which probably ramps up the expectations on any of the books in this series.
That said, one thing about Patterson, he sells a hella of a lot of books, so I'll continue to pick them up used on a swap site rather than buying new at over $20 a pop.

Murder and mayhem, this is typical Patterson fare. It was not horrible. It read quickly and was interesting with many twists in the plot, but no real surprises. There is a dead ex-girlfriend and a ... Read full review

I hate reading a book where I feel like the character that you're supposed to be rooting for is not really a good guy. The "good guy" in this book is a huge jerk. He apparently can't stand to be ... Read full review

I usually like Patterson's books, and I hoped this would be a series I'd like. I'll probably read more about Private and Jack Morgan (or listen to it on audiobooks while driving). But... (1) I hated ... Read full review
