This series is getting better each book, Jack Morgan has the reach all over the world. The team he has in London is really unique, the women have it going on. They really know their stuff, specially Suzy Malone an ex-police, Kristy Webb (Dan Carter ex-wife) detective inspector, Dr. Wendy Lee
Dan Carter is the head of the London office with Sam Riddel second in charge ( right-hand man).
Dan got an assignment to protect Hannah Shapiro because she had been kidnapped before because of her father the scientist working on some sort of detecting machine that is bad in the wrong hands, she and her mother were taken and the mother didn't make it and the ransom was not paid and Jack went to find her.
Now Dan has the pleasure to watch her so he sent his goddaughter to keep a close tab on her by befriending her at the same college (Chloe Smith Dan's captain in the Royal Military police that saved his life and promised to care for his daughter because he got shot and died in his arms).
And then Hannah got kidnapped again, a man in a car got hit by a train and died and his wedding ring finger got cut off in the hospital while he just got his heart taken for a transplant that other people were getting their finger cut off also.
Stuff hit the fan at once and Jack couldn't come so he sent his right-hand man Del Rio (he is bad to the bone) .
Then you have badass women on the bad side that arranged the kidnapping of Hannah and it turned bad quick.
I don't want to tell you all of this book you won't have anything to look forward to.
You got to read this WOW!!!!
YOU WON'T BE DISAPPOINTED!!!! Especially a James Patterson fan.
Also, since this is one of the many books written by Patterson in conjunction with someone else, I was always trying to figure out what part Patterson played in writing this (and other Private) book(s).
Hannah Shapiro was kidnapped as an adolescent and witnessed unspeakable acts against her mother. Years later she is trying to put her life together and the past behind her. But the past has a way of finding you ....
Carter's ex-wife is pursuing another case - young women are turning up dead, their organs apparently harvested. She pursues the case and tries to put distance between herself and her ex.
The book is typical Patterson - short chapters, a quick read. He isn't Hemmingway and some of the plot devices are convenient, and some of the connections are a stretch but the twists in the plot keep the pages turning. Worth an afternoon.
