In James Patterson's #1 bestselling Private series, the world's most exclusive detective agency hunts London's most mysterious killer.
For Hannah Shapiro, a young American student, the nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when the owner of Private-the world's most exclusive detective agency-saved her from a horrific death. Now, after eight years, the terror follows her to London. The only man who can help is former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London.
In London, young women are being abducted and their bodies found mutilated in a grotesque, mysterious way. Carter's ex-wife, DI Kirsty Webb, leads the investigation into these brutal murders, which may somehow be linked to Hannah Shapiro.
Working together, the two investigators are caught in a desperate race against the odds. Private may be the most advanced detection agency in the world . . . but can they catch a predator who rivals London's most elusive killer ever?


  • A let down

    By Skyysteve
    To many characters, plot all over the place, and a major mystery was not explained
  • Bad theme! Not exciting! Just a bad story

    Don’t waste your time
  • Help me out Private

    By Abu ezekiel
    I made a purchase of this book but it's still asking me to pay again and it's on my purchase list.
  • Private is an Awesome series!

    By Kodasmom325
    I absolutely loves series with some of the same characters but yet still adding new from book to book. You've hit it out of the ballpark again! I'm addicted and cannot wait to start on the next one!
  • Really bad.

    By Hahfiensjs
    Hard to believe that this was written by a professional. Introduced to WAY too many characters, most of which had nothing to do with the confusing and poorly developed plot. Not a good look for Patterson... He should write it if he attaches his name to it.
  • What's Up With "Private?"

    By Emily Bell
    Why haven't you brought back Peter Knight from "London Games?" Especially since this one set in London. He was a great character. The best in all the Private books (with the exception of Jack Morgan). I like the idea of the series but think it hasn't come into its own yet. Disappointed Reader
  • Not up to standards

    By RAMJD
    Jut not as we'll written as other Patterson novels. Too many twists and turns. Too confusing. Very disappointing.
  • I LovedThis Book!

    By MBA78
    I started reading this book and was so intrigued, I could not put it down! I just read it from start to finish!
  • Not worth it

    By OLymeBonnie
    I agree with the other reviews that say that this book is not up to par with James Patterson's earlier novels. This was a waste of my time and $$.
  • Private London

    I normally enjoy James Patterson books but Private London was one I did not. I was unable to follow the story and the characters. It was a disappointment.
