Another fast-paced read from Patterson and company. This is about the 4th book I have read in the Private series and it is by far the best of the ones I've read. This one takes place in Berlin and involves a very nasty killer from East Berlin's past before the wall came down. The killer is trying to systematically eliminate a group of orphans who were abandoned at an orphanage years before because they may be able to identify him. As usual, there are some red herrings thrown in with a couple of other cases that were being worked by one of Private's operatives named Chris Schneider before he was found butchered in an old long-abandoned slaughterhouse on the outskirts of Berlin. Overall, this was an exciting page-turner that I would recommend.

I wasn't particularly impressed nor entertained with this book. Unusual since I always have enjoyed Patterson's books. And it was set in Germany where I have three of four grandparents families from, so you would think it would be interesting to me but it just wasn't. I had a hard time following the story line through the first half; the second half was better. Don't NOT read it because of my experience, just go in with a grain of salt.
