James Patterson's bestselling PRIVATE series sees the world's most exclusive detective agency open 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 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: from a missing businessman whose latest scheme was a step too far; to a rock star terrified he's next in line for the infamous 'Club 27'. 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 . . .
