A brand new Patterson series based around an L.A. private investigator
Former US Marine Jack Morgan runs Private, a renowned investigation company with branches around the globe. It is where you go when you need maximum force and maximum discretion. The secrets of the most influential men and women on the planet come to Jack daily - and his staff of investigators use the world's most advanced forensic tools to make and break their cases. In L.A., Jack is already deep into the investigation of a multimillion-dollar gambling scandal and the unsolved slayings of eighteen schoolgirls when he learns of a horrific murder close to home: his best friend's wife, Jack's former lover, has been killed. It nearly pushes him over the edge. Instead, Jack pushes back and devotes all of Private's resources to tracking down her killer. And Jack doesn't have to play by the rules.

"What more is there to say about Patterson, one of the biggest-selling thriller writers of all time? He is a thriller machine, rushing out books as fast as the late, great British writer Edgar Wallace, and like Wallace, he's often underestimated as a result ... This is a breakneck fast, brutally good page-turner, with a twist that Wallace would have loved" Daily Mail "Within a couple of chapters I was smitten with Jack Morgan and all his colleagues at Private ... I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a whodunit mystery" No. 1 Magazine "Yet another fine outing from the master of thrillers and it is guaranteed to keep you busy on the beach" City A.M. "Hits the ground running and the pace never misses a beat" Daily Express
