Las Vegas is a city of contradictions: seedy and glamorous, secretive and wild, Vegas attracts people of all kinds - especially those with a secret to hide, or a life to leave behind. It's the perfect location for Lester Olsen's lucrative business. He gets to treat gorgeous, young women to five-star restaurants, splashy shows, and limo rides - and then he teaches them how to kill.
Private Jack Morgan spends most of his time in Los Angeles, where his top investigation firm has its headquarters. But a hunt for two criminals leads him to the city of sin - and to a murder ring that is more seductively threatening than anything he's witnessed before. Private Vegas brings James Patterson's Private series to a sensational new level.

Not Patterson's Best Work
No. I felt the storyline lacked substance and imagination. I've heard all these stories before. Not familiar with Maxine Paetro so I can't comment of that.. I really enjoyed the first Private book and was expecting great things from this one. Two men from a foreign country that kill and rape women, but get diplomatic immunity; an employee of Private that is tried for murdering an old girl friend, and then there is the continuing dysfunctional relationship between the twin brothers. I find it difficult to believe that twin brothers could really cause the other so much pain.
Not this time. Same reasons as stated above.
Snyder did a good job with what he had to wok with. His attempt to make the book more mellow dramatic than it was did not succeed.
Absolutely not. Only a part of the story actually took place in Las Vegas and there wasn't much left at the end of the book to work with.
The novel lacked feeling and sensitivity and the characters seemed shallow and forced. I was on a lengthy road trip and it served it's purpose. It kept my mind off the long stretches of open roads.
Another "Private" Disappointment
