Private Down Under (Private 6) by James Patterson, Michael White
  

Lovereading view...

Craig Gisto is our latest Private recruit as an office now opens in Australia. It seems that this series’ strength is beginning to lie in its multi-plots which certainly keep the reader on its toes. There are a lot of characters and a lot going on, mostly among the super-rich and/or famous. It is the sort of thing you need to give a block of time to at the start to sort it all out, then you’re hooked. Compelling, thrilling and well worth reading. The next in the series comes in hardback at the same time.

Synopsis

Private Down Under (Private 6) by James Patterson, Michael White

P.I. Craig Gisto, head of the latest branch of Private, is enjoying the glamorous launch party with his new team when their celebrations are interrupted by the bloodied arrival of a boy with his eyes gouged out. The boy is the kidnapped son of one of Australia's richest men - but investigating his death isn't their only pressing case. The rock star Micky Stevens is convinced someone's trying to kill him, and believes Private are the only ones who can help. As if that wasn't enough, someone is murdering the wealthy wives of the Eastern Suburbs, in the most brutal way imaginable. And if they don't catch the killer soon, the next victim could be someone close to Private.
