Publisher's Summary

A history lesson they’ll never forget…and neither will you.
Mattie Engel is one of the rising stars at Private Berlin, and believes she’s seen the worst of people in her previous life with the Berlin police force. That is until Chris, her colleague - and until recently, her fiancé - is found dead, brutally murdered in an old slaughterhouse outside the city. The slaughterhouse is filled with bodies. But just as Private begin their investigations, the building explodes, wiping out all evidence of the crimes, and nearly killing Mattie and her team.

Suspense, history and horrifying

Where does Private Berlin rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

I found the story line and it's involvement in the history of East and West Berlin credible and exciting. I consider some of the graphic descriptions in this novel completely unnecessary. When I read a Paterson novel I expect crime and suspense. This novel I couldn't say I enjoyed and wished I hadn't listened to it. If I'd been reading it, at least I could have skimmed some of the more sadistic pages and may have been able to write a more positive review.

If you’ve listened to books by James Patterson and Mark Sullivan before, how does this one compare?

Have read and listened to James Patterson novels, not sure about the combination.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Ari Fliakos and January Lavoy ?

The narrators were excellent and did a fantastic job.

If you could take any character from Private Berlin out to dinner, who would it be and why?

I wouldn't take out any character.

Any additional comments?

Yes, I would have just inferred the terrible tortures and injustices. Perhaps just a few (or one short) paragraph would have sufficed. As authors, I'm sure they could have justified Chris's, Ilona's and everyone elses behaviour.

Good series

All the books have a common theme but are also very different which gives you a sense of familiarity and keeps the interest. The characters are well written and enjoyable, even the evil ones!

Enjoyed the east/west Germany element, being old enough to remember it, just.

Easy to listen to as the narrator was clear and each character was identifiable.

The Most Serious Private in the Series.

From start to finish, even though this is a work of fiction, it reads like pure fascinating fact!

Not as high tech as the others, but equally as high drama. Stick with it, it's worth it!
