Summary

Brought to you by Penguin. 

An invitation from an old friend draws Jack Morgan into a deadly conspiracy.... 

On a cold January morning, Jack Morgan stands inside the New York Stock Exchange with his former US marine comrade whose company is being launched onto the market, eagerly awaiting the opening bell. 

But before the bell rings, a bullet rips through the air and finds its mark. 

In the aftermath of the murder, the victim's wife hires Jack to find the killer. As the head of Private, Jack has at his disposal the world's largest investigation agency. What he discovers shakes him to his core.

Jack identifies another murder in Moscow that appears to be linked. So he heads to Russia and begins to uncover a conspiracy that could have global consequences. 

With powerful forces plotting against him, will Jack Morgan make it out alive?

"Great action sequences...breathtaking twists and turns." (Anthony Horowitz, best-selling author of Magpie Murders)

Bored and forgettable in parts.

Found the parts with Jack good, but the others in parts forgettable and a little to preachy in parts for my liking. Use to look forward to James Patterson and Private books, but now I am starting to get bored.

Private Moscow

I have listened to several Private books and this was as good as any. I will look for another private I have not heard.

Good story but monotone narration

liked the story and was of the standard expected from James Patterson however, let down by the drab monotone male voice narrator. found my self drifting off and having to re listen in sections as narration was so uninviting and boring tone to listen to

Typical Paterson good listen

Just love Private

Great story as ever. The Russian accent was poor/stunted and let the audio book down. Nowhere as bad as Private India. Can we stay in the US or UK for the next book.

One of my favourite “Private” books

I have listened to all of the Private series books and have to say this was one of my favourites. The story line moves quickly and the intercontinental balance is done well. Easy listening and kept me wanting to “not switch off” which is a good sign for any audiobook.

Rather too many ambushes

As always, fast paced and intricate but rather too many complicated ambushes. Good story and well performed
