The Sunday Times no. 1 bestselling novel in James Patterson's Private series
From the Inside Flap
Jack Morgan is accused of a horrific murder - and not even his own world-class investigators can prove he didn't do it.
Since former US Marine Jack Morgan started Private, it has become the world's most effective investigation firm - sought out by the famous and the powerful to discreetly handle their most intimate problems. Private's investigators are the smartest, the fastest, and the most technologically advanced in the world - and they always uncover the truth.
When his former lover is found murdered in Jack's bed, he is instantly the number one suspect. While Jack is under police investigation and fighting to clear his name, the mob strong-arms him into recovering $30 million in stolen pharmaceuticals for them. And the beautiful owner of a chain of luxury hotels persuades him to quietly investigate a string of murders at her high-class establishments.
The number one suspect is Jack Morgan
With Jack and his team stretched to breaking point, one of his most trusted colleagues threatens to leave Private, and Jack realises he is facing his biggest challenge yet.
With more action, more intrigue, and more twists than ever before, Private: No. 1 Suspect is James Patterson at his unstoppable best. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

Worth a read but generally slow to warm up and long-winded.
There is no too much introduction to the story, but from the beginning fast action will start maintaining the pace and excitement throughout the novel.
Jack Morgan, who was one a Marine and former secret agent, now owns Private, a family private investigations firm, conducting international investigations using high-quality equipment on which even the police can envy.
When woman, who was once Jack's girlfriend, will be murdered and found in Jack's bed that will make him the prime suspect.
It seems that murder was made in professional manner and all collected evidence clearly show that Jack is killer.
He will be imprisoned for murder and when he will get out of jail on bail he must find the real killer and prove his innocence.
At the same time, his firm is working on several other cases trying to find missing drugs worth thirty million, resolving serial murders of businessmen and investigate crimes in which is involved one Hollywood-star.
And though proving his innocence is his most important task, Jack will necessarily have to focus part of his attention to other cases of his firm because one of his most trusted colleagues will threaten to leave Private...
"Private: #1 Suspect" is a classic example of a thriller novel made by James Patterson whose exciting pace and thrilling events will be enjoyed by his fans.
The author manages to build and maintain the excitement with his short chapters making his 400 pages novel a real page turner.Read more ›
First of all, those terrible characters from the first book return and are even more wooden and annoying than ever. I actually think that Jack Morgan is possibly the worst protagonist in any book I have ever read. Again the unrelated and pointless cases that the team are investigating take us the long way round trying to solve as they all drag on for what feels like forever. Keeping in mind that Private is supposed to be a multi-million dollar company with state of the art computer equipment, they still manage to do everything the old fashioned ways, taking the longest possible time to investigate anything. Everything is also very convenient making the story even more unbelievable (such as Jack's evil twin brother - I mean, come on!) , nothing can be described without putting its monetary value on it, and there are absolutely no twists or surprises at all.
I don't know why I keep reading James Patterson's books beyond the Alex Cross and WMC ones as generally they are pretty awful these days, with very occasional exceptions. I only finished this one as I had paid for it or I wouldn't have bothered. I would highly recommend steering clear of this stinker!

Good plot lines and they kept moving along at a good pace. I'm not interested when a writer goes into lots of unnecessary description.Published 23 days ago by Mrs. M. Holwill
The story was obvious and I couldn't make myself read to the end. I wasn't expecting great literature, just an airplane read but this was dull.Published 27 days ago by Tessa
