Description

Private Berlin has the extraordinary pace and international sophistication that has powered The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo and Patterson's #1 bestseller The Postcard Killers.

IN EUROPE'S MOST DANGEROUS CITY

Chris Schneider is a superstar agent at Private Berlin, Germany headquarters for the world's most powerful investigation firm. He keeps his methods secret as he tackles Private's most high-profile cases-and when Chris suddenly disappears, he becomes Private Berlin's most dangerous investigation yet.

AN INVESTIGATOR IS SEARCHING

Mattie Engel is another top agent at Private Berlin, gorgeous and ruthlessly determined-and she's also Chris's ex. Mattie throws herself headfirst into finding Chris, following leads to the three people Chris was investigating when he vanished: a billionaire suspected of cheating on his wife, a soccer star accused of throwing games, and a nightclub owner with ties to the Russian mob. Any one of them would surely want Chris gone-and one of them is evil enough to want him dead.

AND SHE'S AFTER MORE THAN THE TRUTH

Mattie's chase takes her into Berlin's most guarded, hidden, and treacherous places, revealing secrets from Chris's past that she'd never dreamed of in the time they were lovers. On the brink of a terrifying discovery, Mattie holds on to her belief in Chris-in the face of a horror that could force all of Europe to the edge of destruction and chaos.

James Patterson has taken the European thriller to a masterful new level with Private Berlin, an adrenaline-charged, spectacularly violent and sexy novel with unforgettable characters of dark and complex depths. Private Berlin proves why Patterson is truly the world's #1 bestselling author.

    I've read all of Patterson's books and enjoy his writing very much. This time I found that I had a difficult time keeping track of the people and events. I thought the basic story and history were good, but felt like it jumped around a lot. Perhaps it was just me but I was confused quite a bit until the last couple chapters. It won't keep me from buying his next book.
  • Not worth the money or the time

    I'm excited as anyone would be following this series. I became a JP fan a month ago. Since then I've read 7 of his books. My favorite series and most cherished is The Murder Club series. this one is second. I really enjoyed the first one, Jack Morgan seemed so mysterious and war shook. I loved the earthquake war flashback part of the book, JP has a wonderful sense of detail. JP is just a wonderful author and my favorite. He makes for so much suspense/action and even enough sex to make a vivid picture in your mind!
