Like other novels by James Patterson, the body count rises and the murders are clearly by the same hand. The story develops at breathtakingly high speed in short chapters that end in cliff-hanger situations. How are the murders connected? Are the victims connected? What is the significance of the different symbols found with each body? Read the book and find out. On getting a preview copy from Ashwin Sanghi, I thought I would savour it like a fine drink, but found myself tearing through the book, eager to know what happens next.
Yes, there are references which give me hope there could be prequels and sequels to Private India. The novel also has some quotable words, e. Yes, it is a great book and worth reading again to appreciate how the plot has been knit and the reader misled into suspecting one and then another as the murderer. Complete all your tasks before you begin this book, else you may miss your flight, date, or conference Dear Ashwin and James, may your partnership flourish and more power to your word processors!
Having just finished reading this book I decided to give it a four stars because it gripped me as with all of the Private series and I was interested until the end to see how it all wrapped up. In order to remind myself of what happened, I have read multiple spoiler reviews on Goodreads to try and bring out the storyline into my head. A lot of those reviews had the same opinion as I do, this bo Having just finished reading this book I decided to give it a four stars because it gripped me as with all of the Private series and I was interested until the end to see how it all wrapped up.
A lot of those reviews had the same opinion as I do, this book is very forgettable. Honestly, I have now decided to lower my rating to 2 stars. I like the fact that diverse characters as well as diverse authors are brought in as main and supporting characters. There is a big conversation throughout Booktube at the moment involving Diversity within books and I believe James Patterson and his co-authors have achieved this.
The main character in this book though, Santosh Wagh is particularly unlikeable, in my opinion. Not for me! This story follows the Mumbai branch of Private racing to find a serial killer who has murdered nine women from very different walks of life, who have no obvious connections, but unusually the killer leaves behind strange objects at the murder scenes. I personally don't know a lot about Indian culture, religion or spirituality but the explanation of the killer's intentions seemed a little off to me. I wanted more in terms of the cultural connotations of the killer's though processes.
I didn't get that which saddened me. I have also mentioned before that I'm not really a fan of the killer having chapters describing what he is doing and his motives.

It almost spoils the book for me because I want to find out as the investigators discover it. This was made worse in this book by the sheer obviousness of the killer's identity. I knew from the moment the character was introduced that they were the killer! That irritated me also! Overall this book didn't live up to my expectations of the Private series and I almost wish James Patterson had just left this series at the previous book.
Oct 04, Ann rated it it was ok. I love James Patterson! I rarely read a book of his that disappoints me. But Private India was an exception. One thing I like about Patterson 's books is that the perpetrator of the main plot's crime is never revealed until the author wants to. Not here. I realized the person immediately upon being introduced in the plot.
Also, Patterson always has a twist at the end. The end was just a tidying up. My recommendation is not to waste your time. And to James Patterson, please never use this coauthor again. Aug 20, David rated it liked it Shelves: international-thriller.
Not the best, nor the worst in the Private series of books. The plotline was adequate and provided a nice twist, but the characters were mundane and forgettable - and there was a lot of them to keep track of. From a standalone novel viewpoint, I suspect a newcomer to the series would struggle to understand the 'Private' concept from this offering. Certainly not one I would recommend as a standalone novel, but adequate as part of a broader offering the reader was familiar with.

Book review: Private India is Mumbai Darshan with a few murders and cliches
What makes this Book a snooze-fest are the numerous Cliches this book is so filled with : 1 Bomb Attack Plan on Mumbai. Even if you Ignore this Cliches, the Characterisation fails you further. The Characters are so badly sketched that you don't love them nor hate them. The Characters are swearing all the time unnecessarily. Their is no Historical track in this Book, which Ashwin Sanghi is famous for.
I give this Book 1 star. I think even James Patterson is disappointed with this Book, no wonder he is not doing any Publicity for this Book. Move aside all you small time Indian detectives!

India has got its own hi-tech detective agency. Santosh Wagh is its Indian head. With a rather Dr. House-like character and a love for his drink, Mr. Wagh is a brilliant PI with a murky past. His aides are Nisha Gandhe — an Ex-cop turned PI and the attractive lass that every PI team needs, Mubeen the medical expert and Hari the unusual techie with Move aside all you small time Indian detectives! His aides are Nisha Gandhe — an Ex-cop turned PI and the attractive lass that every PI team needs, Mubeen the medical expert and Hari the unusual techie with a macho build.
The story begins with the murder of a woman in a rather stagey fashion. They need to find the killer not just to stop further killings but to save Mumbai from much larger threats!

Honestly, I feel too generous to rate it with a star. Prostitution, smuggling, ties with Pakisthan, is that all you have in mind to say about Mumbai? Sheer disappointment.
