I loved the Michael Bennett series, so I was looking forward to this latest book. It is not the simple, straightforward style of the Bennett books, but a more laidback affair. Some of the terminoligy is off-putting, such as - what is a 'lock-up'? In the USA, it is a jail, but I think it is a storage facility in Britain, but I'm still not sure. There are a few twists & turns in the storyline, which I love, but this book just doesn't 'flow', like some of his others.

After reading "Private" and enjoying it much, much more than most recent Patterson books, I was eagerly looking forward to reading "Private London". I found the storyline, of a terrorist attack on the Olympic Games in London, to be believable, and the overall story entertaining. Patterson never does explain how Private makes the huge amounts of money necessary to have all the uber-expensive toys they have, but I guess that's what they mean when they use the term, "willing suspension of disbelief". Mark Pearson may just be a better writer than Patterson's other "co-writers". If you like the Patterson stories, this is one of the better ones.

This book was very disappointing. It was so predictable with a weak plot and story line. I've always been a big fan of Patterson. Makes me wonder how much of the writing he did.

This was an O.K. book. I have read others that were better and others that were worse.

I look forward to the day I can read A Patterson book without some glaring mistake when he or his co-author describes the use of a gun. This book is not the book I have been looking forward to. The scene is British military forces, city Baghdad, year 2003. Mistake 1:The main character is described as snapping open the holster on his belt and drawing out his service "revolver". The problem is that no modern military serviceman carries a revolver, they carry semi-automatic pistols. Mistake 2: same scenario, the same character is quoted as replacing the cartridge clip in his pistol. If he is in fact carrying a revolver as previously stated then it isn't load using a clip, it is loaded one round at a time or with the aid of a speed loader. Note to authors: Get your weapons straight and consistent. That being said the book was pretty good with enough twists and turns to make for a suspenseful novel. Being set in London with all the local language sometimes was a put off (for example, one character completing a workout and was stated as "warming down" as opposed to cooling down) but it worked well considering the books location.
