Private by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro: If #70 was the worst book I have read this year, Private is one of, if not the best one, I've read this year. From what I can gather, It's the beginning of a new series. Jack Morgan, a former Marine helicopter pilot, owns and operates "Private," a investigative agency. He and his staff take on three bizarre cases. Then the action begins! This is one of those books that I didn't want to put down. I even read through breakfast and dinner. This is a must-read for all mystery/suspense buffs.
