Publisher's Summary

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.

Disappointed in Down Under

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I have read Private London and Berlin before this. Down Under was more of the same except I found the plot too predictable. The level of violence is unnecessary gore.
I did enjoy the narrator and the Australian accent gave the story authenticity IMO.

was it really written by J. Patterson?

Weak characters. Story consists of 3 plots that are not linked together. I wish the serial killer line has been more developed. The kidnapping angle was pathetic. Strong accent of narrator disturbed me a lot, but at least I improved my English listening skills..
