I remember when Patterson wrote his own books. Not anymore. He writes an outline and lets the guy listed on the bottom of the book write the book. A total scam. Patterson and Clive Cussler are the worst for this. How do you think they "write" so many books every year. Don't be fooled.

    Not one of his best

    I am a hugh James Patterson fan but was disappointed in this latest novel of his. Not sure I want to read his new Berlin book now at all. I have always really liked all his books basically but this one is just not very entertaining or like most of his others.

    Not impressed with this one.

    I am an avid James Patterson fan and have read and enjoyed almost all of his books. Usually, I can't put them down. Private London, however, I found lacking the usual suspense. Some characters seemed underdeveloped and the plot didn't seem to flow very well. Also, some of the syntax/sentence structure was a bit off. Several times I had to re-read sentences to figure out what the author was trying to say. Can't win them all. I really wasn't happy with this one.

    Not the best Patterson novel I ever read. Bring back more Alex Cross and Mike Bennett. I still remain a Patterson fan.
