Reviews Princess (Private, #14)

  • Matt
    James Patterson has returned for another collaborative effort with Rees Jones to add to the ever-expanding Private series. This novel, like many of the others, takes readers around the world and into a high-stakes game of sleuthing and action, with an international twist. Jack Morgan, head of Private, the international investigation service, is back in London. This trip is anything but a chance to sightsee or make one of his random check-ins with...

    3.5*This was an okay installment in the Private series but honestly I had high expectations coming into this one and it was only ok with some interesting parts. Not my favorite installment but not the worst. My quick and simple overall: not bad but not as good as I was hoping.
  • Mandy White
    Another great Private book.. I do love Morgan! Set in London again this one is full on action and emotions. Keep them coming James Patterson please... maybe time to return to Australia for an adventure??

    If the book had stopped at exactly 50% i think i would have liked it. After 50% the story goes on and on about his past enmity with Flex and takes away the focus.

    The Private series is one of my favourites that James Patterson has written for him despite how fantastical and over the top they can be at times, as evidenced here in Private Princess. It’s no exaggeration when I say that every page of this book is all-action. Jack Morgan is seemingly invincible he survives that many attempts on his life in this story. We see Jack returning to Private London for a meeting with Princess Caroline who wants Priva...

    Princess is a thriller forming part of James Patterson's Private novels. It is rather entertaining and could be done with in a sitting or two. I find the writing in there rather straight forward though and so wasn't impressed by much. The Security Firm, Private, Head Jack Morgan has a case to handle and as ussual it comes with costs for through the case Private faces ordeals that would deem their challenges of getting down to the answers low. Pri...

    Terrible and dullMr Patterson needs to stop writing about the UK, it was painful to read. The Royal family employing Americans to save their reputation is both embarrassing and laughable. Even the parts about Milwall and Fulham football fans was awkward, a quick Google would have been enough to write those scenes, no need to visit. How very British, having a football fan throw a pie at a copper, English (not British), football holligans take far ...
  • Gerri
    Actual rating is less that 2 stars but not a 1. Wish Mr. Patterson would go back to the good old days of putting more quality into his books instead of seeing how many books he can spit out and how fast. Over the past years I’ve pretty much given up on all his series but still found the Private and Jack Morgan series a fairly decent read. This novel was so disappointing, far-fetched, sloppy and at times laughable as Patterson tried to convince ...

    I bought this book at a book store. I enjoyed reading it. It had a good story to it. I like the style of writing in these private books that the author writes. I look forward to the next one.

    2...So disappointed! Two books ago we had a missing a princess's friend is missing. Last book was a suspicious suicide...why are these storylines in THIS novel...I couldn't even get into this novel!!!!
  • Donna Lewis
    Well the Private books may not be memorable, but they are exciting, fast paced reading. Jack Morgan is a larger than life hero, and London is a great backdrop for the newest adventure. Good job.
  • Suzanne
    I was a bit disappointed in this book. I was expecting more for it. Private is a great series and this just did not seem to fit in. I hope the next one is better. I’m wondering if it makes a difference who he collaborates with when he writes.
  • ♓️ Michelle
    Well I must say this was better than the last few Private novels I’ve read. Pretty typical though. I swear if that one guy used the word “bastard” one more time I was going to lose it!!
  • Emma
    An OK read but Jack just did not feel like “Jack” in this book.
  • Mike Kennedy
    This was an ok installment in the Private series. A friend of the princess is Missing in London. The princess calls Jack Morgan to help her find her friend. In the meantime it looks like one of Jack’s no nemesis’ From previous Private London novels is back for revenge. This book reads a three star because as usual when Jack Morgan is involved it seems to be an OK read. Still not loving this series, but I will probably keep going.
  • Kathy Warren
    This book was awful. No more words.
  • Martha C
    Just dreadful! Can not recommend this book at all. Couldn’t wait for it to be over!
  • Lisa Crump
    I have never read a bad James Patterson book until Private Princess. Title is totally misleading as it has very little to do with a princess. Just not a good read.
  • Pat Lampe
    I respect James Patterson for his energy and generosity in giving writers a chance and not just using them as ghost writers. But this book was so badly written and boring. I couldn’t finish it.
  • Paula Phillips
    As a big reader, sometimes amidst the romance books I read I love to have a change and mystery novels are my go-to-reads. This one grabbed my attention as. First it was a Private novel featuring Jack Morgan and it had to do with the royal family. Private Princess takes us back to London where Jack and his team have been hired by the princess to find a missing person. As the team looks for her, the crew start coming up against danger as they are b...

    I liked this book and couldn’t put it down. A lot happened in this story; when I thought it was almost done, another plot emerged. I now want to read the other books in this Private series!
  • William Middleton
    For me this book was harder to get into thanost Patterson novels The characters and roles a bit confusing, but by the end I was ripping along and enjoying it.
  • Marcia
    I really liked this book except for one detail, which was too unbelievable. This is a Private novel set in England. The action is fast, and the ending is open to be resolved in a later novel. The story begins with a disappearance of a friend of a Princess, but escalates into much more. Jack Morgan is forced to watch the brutal murder and beating by a man he hates. The part I could not accept was how Jack Morgan got a couple of pistols. England ha...

But the Princess is less than forthcoming and his search for her missing friend, Sophie Edwards, jeopardizes Jack’s life. Can he overcome her reluctance to trust him with the secrets she insists on keeping private?Filled with familiar characters and the requisite plot twists and turns, this fast-paced tale keeps the pages t...
  • Barbara Schultz
    Disappointed. I have read many “Private” novels and especially like when the story is center on Jack.This audio was annoying. I typically listen to an audio in the car. I found I couldn’t hear the narrator most of the time however when I turned up the volume I found he was now shouting. I keep telling myself to stop with Patterson!!!!!!! He is my most read author and I really am getting tired of the foul language and the recent so so novels...
  • Gabriel
    *** 3.5 ***This is another quite pleasant, fun and entertaining book from the Private series presented to us by James Patterson book factory... It's well written, with one well-constructed main plot unfolding and even a secondary plot as a bonus add-on, just to keep us on the edge, more engaged and to build up suspense and tension, all this and more make it for a pleasant read worth your time if you like this style...
  • Jill
    Latest book in the series. I just read the first one in the series prior to this and I probably should have not jumped so far ahead to have the real feel for all the characters and their relationships plus other adventures prior to this book. However, non-stop action with Jack’s London office personnel as they work to solve the princess’s problem and one close to Jack’s heart.
  • Michael crage
    This Private noel was a little different than most. The main detective involved was Jack Morgan, the leader of the Private Detctive Agency. But when the daughter of the Queen Elizabeth calls for help, I guess you don't send an underling. The Princess Caroline wants Morgan to find a friend of hers, Sophie Edwards. The Princess does not tell Morgan everything he needs to know but he eventually is able to help her.
  • Marsha
    The premise is great and it starts off with a missing woman who is the best friend of the princess. As they uncover the woman's real life and how she is more than a "Best Friend" was great. Then came the revenge aspect and the story disintegrates into one of violence and gore.The two cases, the Princess and the attacks on individual Private Operatives, are connected but the operatives make too many mistakes that either get them killed or tortured...
