Mehr über den Autor

James Patterson sagt von sich selbst: "Ich bin schnell. Ich bin ein Ja-Nein-Typ, ich hasse Vielleichts." Und er ist tatsächlich so schnell, dass er an mehreren Romanen gleichzeitig arbeitet und pro Jahr mitunter fünf Titel auf Platz 1 der Bestsellerlisten landet. Begonnen hat seine Karriere, als er mit 27 Jahren den "Edgar Allan Poe Award" für seinen ersten Roman "Die Toten wissen gar nichts" bekam. Seitdem arbeitet er pausenlos an den Thrillern der "Alex-Cross"-Reihe oder schreibt über Detektiv Lindsay Boxer und den "Women's Murder Club". Hinzu kommen weitere Romane sowie Sach- und Kinderbücher. Patterson hat Englische Literatur studiert und war einige Jahre Chef einer Werbeagentur. Heute lebt er mit seiner Familie in Palm Beach City, Florida.

Von John am 19. Februar 2014
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
So much of the subject matter of this book is realistic. It is a fascinating blend of current events and realistic plot, which though intricate, spins the reader with consistent developments and subplots that abound in the story.The characters are also very believable. It reminds me of Triple Agent Double Cross, another thriller with similar development and pattern. I cannot wait for the next one.

I was asked to review this for Netgalley as I had already read the others in the series.

I would say I loved Jack Morgan's character as the way he gets himself into all sort of scraps is amazing. His team are always there with him and would love to know what happens with the outcome to his brother's trial.

Can't wait for book 8 Mr Patterson :D

JACK MORGAN IS AT IT AGAIN! 14. Januar 2014
Von the GreatReads! - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Private L.A. by James Patterson with Mark Sullivan is the seventh installment in the Private series but the third in the series featuring world-renowned private investigator Jack Morgan, head of Private Investigation. In this segment of the series, Jack Morgan is up against a mountain of problems when his twin brother, Tommy, is charged with murder.

Things are going from bad to worse in Los Angeles. Jack Morgan and his trusted team of investigators are called in when a group calling themselves 'No Prisoners' are holding the LA Authorities to ransom threatening to carry out massacres at random locations until their demands are met. And Jack has been asked to investigate the disappearance of the biggest superstar couple in Hollywood, Thom and Jennifer Harlow, along with their children, and prevent the news from leaking to the media.

It is a suspenseful story with a plot that moves at breakneck speed. It has all the trademarks of James Patterson's thrillers: absorbing, great characters, fast-paced, dramatic twists and turns and unbelievable storyline. Though the book coursed through three different plots, they are blended together only as Patterson can and wrapped up satisfactorily at the end. Private L.A. is much better than Private Berlin. It is an absolutely delightful perfect weekend getaway read.

Disappointing, even for "pulp" 9. März 2014
Von Joy McCann - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
For reasons unknown, this book was written with two plots that have no relationship to each other. Most plot turns were predictable; those that were not related to storylines I'd stopped caring about at all.

The writers may have visited Los Angeles a couple of times, but they know little about what it is like to live here. They drive all over the place but never get caught in any traffic (even at dusk on Halloween). They call Pacific Coast Highway "Highway 1," whereas most Angelenos don't use that term for that thoroughfare anywhere south of the split from the 101. The Huntington Beach Pier is moved to Los Angeles--not just the county, but the city, and into LAPD jurisdiction. That mistake could have been fixed easily, by transferring all that action to the Venice Pier, but the authors simply didn't care.

A woman has a fling and is seized by guilt when she finds out that her booty call is married and has two kids. Although supposedly a smart adult, she is unable to place responsibility on the guy--who wore no wedding ring and implied he was free. She has to have this pointed out to her by a therapist, even though she supposedly has an academic background and is a therapist herself. Naturally, she has multiple therapeutic specialities--working with children, helping PTSD patients--and has an "academic" background. She lives in a million dollar home (a detached single-family dwelling in Santa Monica), with no explanation given as to why she is that wealthy.

There are way too many names given, for stock characters who are about to be killed. The point of view changes radically, jarringly, even in the middle of action sequences. These types of problems made the book a lot of work to read. Not "thought-provoking" . . . work.

Characters do a lot of things for reasons that are hard to fathom at all . . . until one realizes that they are doing them because it is convenient for the writers.

Near the end, the main characters take enormous risks with their lives and futures by engaging in illegal and dangerous activities in Mexico, when it would have made more sense to walk away and let poetic justice take its course. They are thereby able to achieve a "storybook" ending (that is no more believable than the rest of the book), but their motives for the extreme recklessness are never explained.

This book was easy to put down, and I finished it out of a vague curiosity only, not because I truly cared what happened to the characters.

If this is representative of Patterson's actual work, I will be taken aback--given his popularity. I hope he's better than this, and that he and Sullivan simply phoned this book in.

Essentially, this was over 400 pages of broadcast television writing, rather than a satisfying crime book.

One star is one too many 20. Februar 2014
Von Carolyn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
What a total waste of time, money and paper. The book is two different, totally unrelated stories. I think Patterson wrote one of them and his co-author the other. Too many characters, too many plot lines, topped off with a quick, "let's get it over with" ending. James Patterson has been a favorite author for a long time but his Private series is a complete turn-off for me. I think he gets his jollies out of writing about kinky sex.

Private L.A. 24. Januar 2014
Von Big Bertha - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Private is a Private Investigation Company run by Jack Morgan and a trusted band of colleagues who are willing to go where other agencies wont and as such are building a fast growing reputation.
In this, the 7th of the series, Private are called in when a group calling themselves 'No Prisoners' are holding the LA Authorities to ransom threatening to carry out massacres at random locations until their demands are met

At the same time World famous Hollywood couple Thom and Jennifer Harlow, recently returned from filming their latest blockbuster movie suddenly vanish without trace. Trying to keep the disappearance from the media Private are called in to investigate.

Plenty of action and the story moves at a good pace. Admittedly there were times where realism is stretched but it is fiction after all and that didn't really ruin my enjoyment. If you're after an easy read without too much depth then I'd certainly recommend this one.

It's been a long time since I've read anything by James Patterson (or the many authors he teams up with) and I haven't read any of the previous books in this series. To be fair I enjoyed this more than I thought I would and didn't feel at all disadvantaged with not having read the previous books. That said, I was intrigued by the relationship between Jack and his brother Tommy and there's obviously some pretty serious history there ...may well add them to my ever growing 'to read' list and find out the full story
