Private London


This book is available for download with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device. Books can be read with iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


Private goes on the hunt for London's most feared killer since Jack the Ripper.

For Hannah Shapiro, a young American student, the nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when the owner of Private--the world's most exclusive detective agency--saved her from a horrific death. Now, after eight years, the terror follows her to London. The only man who can help is former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London.

In London, young women are being abducted and their bodies found mutilated in a grotesque, mysterious way. Carter's ex-wife, DI Kirsty Webb, leads the investigation into these brutal murders, which may somehow be linked to Hannah Shapiro.

Working together, the two investigators are caught in a desperate race against the odds. Private may be the most advanced detection agency in the world...but can they catch a predator who rivals London's most elusive killer ever?

Customer Reviews

Private London

A shame that Patterson no longer writes his own novels. Keep hoping for a great book but lately it's just not there. Nothing great here at all. Felt nothing about anyone. Cold and bloodless reading at its worst.


Started off really good with a great deal of action and heartbreak. There was basically two different problems going on in the story so it lost some zeal for me. Too many characters too that were brought in for a second then brought back chapters later felt like I needed to take notes. Too much at the end with regards to how the puzzle got put together and a bit unbelievable. Not his best but still enjoyable


I have been very disappointed in Patterson's recent books. He needs to get back to the writing.
This book is convoluted to the point I have no idea who anyone is or how it all comes together. The Hamas has just come into this already mixed and mashed story. I will never know the ending because I'm done reading. I used to wait with anticipation for a new "James" but now I'm going to tread cautiously before purchasing any more. Really too bad.
