Private Paris

Private Paris
Someone is targeting the most powerful people in Paris--only Jack Morgan can make it stop.

When Jack Morgan stops by Private's Paris office, he envisions a quick hello during an otherwise relaxing trip. But Jack is quickly pressed into duty after getting a call from his client Sherman Wilkerson, asking Jack to track down his young granddaughter, who is on the run from a brutal drug dealer. Before Jack can locate her, several members of France's cultural elite are found dead-murdered in stunning, symbolic fashion. The only link between the crimes is a mysterious graffiti tag. As religious and ethnic tensions simmer in the City of Lights, only Jack and his Private team can connect the dots before the smoldering powder keg explodes.

    James Patterson does it again with continuing the “Private series”. I’ve been a big fan of his books, especially when the Alex Cross series came out, since it was one of my favorites. Loved the books and then the movies for Along Came a Spider and Kiss the Girls. I also enjoy the NYPD Red series, which is why I started in on the “Private Series”. I have read other great ones, such as Private Berlin, Private London, Private Vegas and Private India to name a few. This brings us to his newest novel, Private Paris. I believe it is number eleven of the series. I got an advance reader’s copy of this and some other Patterson novels from time to time.For those that have not followed this series, Jack Morgan was a former CIA agent who is in charge of an investigation firm called “Private”, with different branches all over the world. Hence the Private Paris, India, London and so forth.This time around, Jack Morgan was all set to vacation and take a rest in Paris, when of course, he has to check …

    I found this book very boring. There is lots of action, but no character development and no reason to care what happens to any of these people. Maybe it’s time James Patterson stops farming these books out to other writers….

    I love the concept of James Patterson’s Private series almost as much as I do the execution. Private is a global security and investigative agency owned by Jack Morgan, who is a very hands-on type of guy. In addition to helming Private’s headquarters in Los Angeles, Jack likes to pay visits to the agency’s offices in world capitals such as Berlin and London. Where he goes, of course, trouble follows. Mark Sullivan has been one of Patterson’s main go-to collaborative authors in this series; his keen eye for detail and background, as well as his usual flawless pacing, makes this latest installment another must-read.As PRIVATE PARIS begins, we find Jack (following an introductory vignette that gets things rolling) in Paris enjoying a repast with Louis Langlois, who runs Private Paris and is an ex-member of the French National Police with almost three decades of service with La Crim, the brigade of the police judiciaire tasked with investigating serious crimes. Langlois is giving J…

    I am an avid reader, and James Patterson is one of my favorite authors. This was the very first book by Mr. Patterson that I just could not get through!!! It started out so so, then came to a crawl. I have to admit I skimmed through most of it and tried to read the last two chapters but couldn’t even make it through them! Would not recommend this book at all. I’m hopeful that his next book is back to his great penmanship and storytelling abilities. Sorry but have to only give this 1 star….

    I am a Patterson reader and i enjoy every book. Not this one. Characters were,not clearly portrayed. Calling them by military titles,was confusing. The story was not fun to follow. I finished it because i started it, but i really did not care by the end. There were no characters that i admired. Lots of location detail that was distracting. I have been to France and there must be better ways to lead the reader through Paris….


    PRIVATE PARIS by James Patterson and Mark Sullivan features Jack Morgan, ex-Marine helicopter pilot, now founder and head of Private Investigative Services headquartered in Los Angeles with offices worldwide. Jack flies to Paris for a long awaited vacation where he receives an urgent call from Sherman Wilkerson, a wealthy friend and client in Malibu. His 27-year-old-granddaughter, Kimberly, last seen in Paris has gone missing. He is concerned because Kim is his only living relative. Locating Kimberly was relatively easy. However, because she is being chased by notorious drug dealers returning her to the States becomes an elusive task dragging Jack and his friend and manager of Private Paris, Louis Langlois, through hour after hour of murder and mayhem in and around the streets and businesses of Paris. As an aside to the prime story, Jack and Louis also become involved with a venturous Islamic terrorist organization that leaves their graffiti calling card, TagAB-16, at murder sites of s…

    This was a waste of $15.00. Just a duplicate of the last except a different place. Lackluster story and if I was Parisian. I’d be insulated. Downgrading someone’s culture to beef up a story is poor taste. I skipped to the end….

    I am through reading these “Private Series” books. I didn’t like the characters in this book and it was hard to follow. Why is it always when someone is sent to help a damsel in distress, instead of being grateful, she gives her rescuers the slip and they have to go find her again? If she is that stupid, let her go. I also didn’t like all this Paris stuff and politics. Do the Parisians really hate Americans that much? Good riddance to them then!…
