The world's most exclusive detective agency opens a new office - in Australia!
With the best detectives in the business, cutting edge technology and offices around the globe, there is no investigation company quite like Private. Now, at a glittering launch party overlooking the iconic Opera House, Private Sydney throws open its doors . . .
Craig Gisto and his newly formed team have barely raised their glasses, however, when a young Asian man, blood-soaked and bullet-ridden, staggers into the party, and what looks like a botched kidnapping turns out to be a whole lot more.
Within days the agency's caseload is full. But it is a horrific murder in the wealthy Eastern Suburbs and the desperate search for a motive that stretches the team to the limit. Stacy Friel, friend of the Deputy Commissioner of NSW Police, isn't the killer's first victim - and as the bodies mount up she's clearly not the last . . .
Private Down Under by James Patterson
Private Down Under takes us on a multiple murder mystery investigation, by the new Australian team of Private Sidney Detective Agency.
An Asian man is gruesomely murdered with links to a highly organized drug ring. Nothing like getting thrown right into the deep end on opening day, but Private is up for the task.
There is a serial killer on the loose and the victims are hitting close to home with the Private staff, the clock is ticking down before one of their own is targeted.
The story is written by multiple perspectives, including the victims last moments, the murders and the investigators.
Private Down Under is an entertaining, suspense filled, thriller, mystery. Gruesome and grizzly descriptions gives this blood drenched novel the feeling of an episode of CSI. I can't but be impressed by the tactile vibe of being part of the investigation, but I'm not a fan of such horrific details in real life circumstances. This would be a perfect read for life mirroring, suspense thriller fans.
