Publisher's Summary

The next explosive book in James Patterson's number-one best-selling Private series!
For Hannah Shapiro, a beautiful young American student, this particular nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when Jack Morgan, owner of Private - the world's most exclusive detective agency - saved her from a horrific death. She has fled her country, but can't flee her past. The terror has followed her to London, and now it is down to former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London, to save her all over again.
In central London, young women are being abducted off the street. When the bodies are found some days later, they have been mutilated in a particularly mysterious way. Dan Carter's ex-wife, DI Kirsty Webb, is involved in the investigation and it looks likely that the two cases are gruesomely linked.
Dan Carter drawn on the whole resources of Private International in a desperate race against the odds. But the clock is ticking....
Private may be the largest and most technologically advanced detection agency in the world, but the one thing they don't have is the one thing they need--time.

My Take:  To be quite honest with you I had to reread the summary to recall this book at all.  This was one of my least favorite books by James Patterson and his many co-authors.  I just didn't find myself really caring about any of the characters and I really didn't get into the story.  I could easily have forgone this book and kind of wish I had as there are so many other books that I think will be great when I get around to them.  If you are a Patterson fan I would suggest that you skip this one.  Time not well spent. 

The narrator was hard to understand at times because of his British accent.  I will not be seeking him out and if I come across a book narrated by him again I will definetly listen to a sample and think long and hard before I get another book read by him.  He wasn't horrible but I had to listen harder than I like.

This Book Was taken from my personal library of Audio books.
