Review: James Patterson & Mark T. Sullivan - Private Paris
2.0Overall Score

I expected more from James…

Plot: When Jack Morgan stops by Private’s Paris office, he envisions a quick hello during an otherwise relaxing trip filled with fine food and sightseeing. But Jack is quickly pressed into duty after 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.

Remarks: I was so disappointed by this book. I am a big fan of James Patterson and the stories he writes. They’re usually filled with such suspense and action, but this one felt drawn out and boring. The story moved very slowly and there was too much detail in the names and places for someone who doesn’t know French or France. I must be honest that I was very confused with the French names and after a while didn’t read them properly. Although the story had a nice twist, I only finished this book because it was a James Patterson novel. Unless, like me, you’re a fan of the author, I’d give this one a miss.

Rating: 2/5
