Patterson and Hamdy team up for an unmissable, breakneck ride into
Moscow's dark underworld.
Great action sequences . . . breathtaking twists and turns.
Exhilarating, high-stakes action set in sub-zero temperatures, but so fast-paced you won't have time to feel the chill! -- Lesley Kara, bestselling author of The Rumour
The first Private outing for couple of years, but it's been well worth the wait . . . As always in a Patterson novel there's lots of action and plot turns as Jack tries to discover the secrets that unite the murder victims as he gets tangled up in the murky world of espionage * Keighley News *
There's enough action, adventure and excitement to fill two chunky blockbusters in Private Moscow which makes for an exhilarating and totally satisfying read. Last year I would have described it as a perfect holiday novel, now I'm saying it's an ideal companion for shaking off the new semi-isolation blues. Unlike a lot of high-octane thrillers, which can be overblown and under-serious, Private Moscow has a finger on the pulse of world affairs, a grounded seriousness that gives it gravitas and makes it an altogether more intriguing read. * NB Magazine *
