Private #1 Suspect


James Patterson


Maxine Paetro

Private #1 Suspect was my first James Patterson book this year.  Although I have in the past questioned the amount of input Patterson has in his collaboratively authored books, I still enjoy them.  Private #1 Suspect was no exception to this.  Short sharp chapters made for easy reading, particularly if, like me, you like to ‘finished a chapter’ before turning out the light.

Jack who owns Private Investigations arrives home, showers goes to his room only to find an old flame (Colleen) murdered in his bed.  In the eye of the police, along with some of Colleen’s friends, Jack is guilty of her murder.  And Jack has his own suspect.


While trying to clear his name there are murders at a hotel chain to solve.  A member of the mob asks for Jack’s help.  The fact that there is more than one story and complication woven into Private #1 Suspect enhances the story.  James Patterson fans will fall in love with Private #1 Suspect.

Other Goodreads readers have awarded Private #1 Suspect an average of 3.96 stars from 20,046 reviews and 1,084 ratings.
