Jack Morgan owns Private Investigations, a worldwide detective
agency for the rich & famous as well as government agencies.
The former US Marine heads once again to London and the Royal
family. Princess Caroline has a case for Jack; he hopes it’s
not a repeat of his last visit (Private: Royals).
The Princess is looking for her friend, Sophie Edwards. Jack
gets the impression there’s more to this case than a
missing person. Once the princess gives Jack full discloser,
he meets up with the head of Private London, Peter Knight.
Peter is investigating the suicide of a wealthy man, so Jack
teams up with Jeremy Hooligan and later Jane Cook. Jack and
Jane have a history. The investigation and the action take
off after the three agents move to a safe place. Someone is
trying to trip up the case. The team suffers a loss and Jack
decides to hunt the killer down. The current case, as well
as the dead agent, leads to intense cat-and-mouse scenes as
well as high-flying, nonstop action which eventually leaves
Jack literally clinging for his life.
As always Patterson’s signature short chapters keep
the storyline moving. It’s a complex storyline that
includes hardcore action and a high fatality rate, but the
authors wisely save the best for last. British actor Colin
Mace narrates the audio version. It’s a suspenseful
narration designed to drive audiophiles to the edge of their
seats. Mace also narrates Heist, a BookShot collaboration
also by Patterson and Jones.
Rees Jones co-wrote two previous Bookshot stories with Patterson,
Royals and Heist.
