James Patterson's BookShots.
Fast-paced, high-impact entertainment.
Jack Morgan is visiting Peter Knight and the team in the London branch of his investigation agency, Private. At a cocktail party the night before the Trooping the Colour parade for the Queen's 90th birthday, Jack receives a phone call from the Duke of Aldershot saying that his daughter, Abbie, has been kidnapped.
He needs Private on the case - one word to the police and Abbie will be killed. Jack will have to find Abbie before 11 o'clock the next morning, or the kidnapping will turn to murder.

Yeah, it's a great short story that has everything....
Loved 'Jack' meeting a new 'lady' and that quandary of working together and that slight sexual chemistry!
The various 'casual' bit's between Jack and his 'employee's'. He just comes across as a really nice (fictional) guy!
Yep - all done in a sitting to take me back to JP from one that I really didn't like!
So far so good on the short stories - will check out some more....!
The book review sounds both adventurous and topical .... but is little more than an almost continuous description of fighting ..... Little investigative content or mystery.
The readers natural voice is clear and tonal ....but his attempts at the East London voices and the unwarranted profanities .... Not good enough to be under the "Alex Cross" pedigree. Is this what we can now disappointedly expect from Paterson ?
