Overview

Paris is burning--and only Private's Jack Morgan can put out the fire.

When Jack Morgan stops by Private's Paris office, he envisions a quick hello during an otherwise relaxing trip filled with fine food and sightseeing. But Jack is quickly pressed into duty after a call from his client Sherman Wilkerson, asking Jack to track down his young granddaughter who is on the run from a brutal drug dealer.

Before Jack can locate her, several members of France's cultural elite are found dead--murdered in stunning, symbolic fashion. The only link between the crimes is a mysterious graffiti tag. As religious and ethnic tensions simmer in the City of Lights, only Jack and his Private team can connect the dots before the smoldering powder keg explodes.

Why did I read another James Paterson book if I hate them so much? I thought the one book that I liked of his was written by Mark Sullivan. It wasn't. It was written by Michael Ledwidge. When Paterson wrote the books himself, the reader knew what to expect. Short sentences, short chapters and a lot of action. Sometimes, the action was silly but it moved at a quick pace. Now with the new authors writing his books, the reader doesn't know what to expect. But surely not this. A slow-moving plot with excessive description of streets, houses, rooms, clothing and everything else you can think of. The plot is so convoluted, it's hard to summarize it in a few sentences. First, the subplot with the missing girl has nothing to do with the main plot. It's written to confuse readers with extra information. The main plot is about a group of five people who begin to kill French intellectuals, one after another. Each chapter has a murder or a long drawn-out scent of the spray-painting member of the team being chased or climbing up some building. The chase and climbing scenes are described in detail, but I still couldn't follow all his acrobatics. Not that I wanted to. The killings are a precursor to the announcement of the group's message: AB-16. After awhile, I couldn't care less what AB-16 is. There are many French and Middle Eastern names of people used, making it hard to remember who each person is. I thought for most of the book that Ame and Haja are the same person. I didn't realize there are two women. The author switches back and forth from referring to people using their first and last names. Names of buildings and streets are also thrown in. Every street they pass, we are told what its name is. The ending is long and drawn out. More bodies. More bombs. More gun fire. The police run around in circles. Even the main character messes up so much, even though he's supposed to be the head of an elite investigative service for the super rich. When he does get it right, it is only by accident.

You read one "Private", you have read them all. The format is the same, the evil character is presented in the first person, and the plots are easily figured out. There are some twists in the "Private" series that surprise you, but you know the outcome when you start reading the book. I enjoyed the four "Private" books I read but now I am "privated out". I enjoy James Patterson's books for the most part.
