Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Patterson's latest (The Lasko Tangent, Escape the Night) is a crackerjack thriller. First a rock superstar's manager and then a newspaper mogul's wife are kidnapped; the latter event is videotaped and sent to a cable news network. ``Phoenix,'' the chief kidnapper, appears masked on the tape, promising TV trials of the principals and, if his demands aren't met, a live broadcast of an execution. Attorney Tony Lord is called by superstar Stacy Tarrant to help ransom her manager. A year before, Lord had defended the Vietnam vet who had assassinated Stacy's lover, a U.S. Senator killed on the eve of California's presidential primary. Half the book is a long, vivid flashback to the assassination and trial, both of which prove to have surprising connections with the kidnapping. In a complex plot, Patterson saves his most shocking twists for the ending, however. And even while maintaining a breakneck pace, he manages to convey Vietnam's sad legacy for many of its veterans. A superior performance, with a few scenes that beg for movie or TV treatment. October 15
Library Journal
When a Vietnam veteran assassinates California's presidential candidate, an intricate plot begins to unfold. A terror ist who styles himself the Phoenix kid naps two people and captures prime time television to air his demands. Be hind the scenes the assassin's lawyer shuttles among the principals; eventu ally he becomes the reluctant point man in the negotiations with Phoenix. In a shock ending that evokes the sort of nasty secrets exposed by Raymond Chandler, the pieces all come together. Unlike those hardboiled thrillers, though, this book brims with upbeat emotions like true love, loyalty, and courage. Patterson's own background as a trial lawyer gives the dialogue in his fourth novel a realistic thrust-and- parry rhythm. There are really two sto ries here, for along with the thriller is a restrained and taut tale of one U.S. sol dier whose conduct in the war haunts him still. Engaging and intelligent, this complex story puts a new gloss on the terror and troubles of our times. Bar bara Conaty, Medical Coll. of Wiscon sin Lib., Milwaukee

    Sorry, but NO!

    I really, really disliked this book and I'll read--and find an excuse to like--just about anything. I found it difficult to relate to much less enjoy ANY of the characters, the entirely implausible plot meandered aimlessly through an incongruent text, and the finale was utterly predictable. "Private Screening" isn't even a good "bad book" in a camp value sense. Just order something else or watch a Lifetime Original Movie instead.

    R. N. P. is a literary genius!

    I loved it. Quite different from the usual crime fiction yarn and oh-so-enjoyable. Tony Lord is quite a likable character. the story line was intrigueing. Hats off to you Richard...once again!
