Private LA (Private 7) by James Patterson
  

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

A good, meaty read with several stories running alongside each other. There are two main crime strands, a kidnapping of a celebrity family and a group killing of random people if certain demands are not met. Add the trials and tribulations of the main characters and there’s lots to get stuck into. This means you get two or three thrilling endings in one book! It is the seventh in the series. Great fun.

If you like James Patterson you might also like to read books by Andrew Gross, Jeffery Deaver and Lisa Gardner.

Synopsis

Private LA (Private 7) by James Patterson

Jack Morgan is having a bad week. His twin brother is up on a murder charge and determined to frame him for the crime, and one of Jack's clients has just called to report the burnt bodies of four surfers on his beach. But what seems like a random mugging gone wrong soon reveals something far worse - a killer calling themselves No Prisoners is holding the city to ransom. And there's more bad news: Hollywood's golden couple, Thom and Jennifer Harlow, have been kidnapped, along with their adopted children. It looks like the whole world is about to discover whether Private are really as good as they say they are.
