Short & Sweet Review: Private India: City on Fire by James Patterson


Title: Private India: City on Fire
Author: James Patterson
Series: Private #8
Published: November 2014, Grand Central Publishing
Format: Paperback, 384 pages
Source: Personal copy

Summary: 
When Santosh Wagh isn't struggling out of a bottle of whisky he's head of Private India, the Mumbai branch of the world's finest PI agency.

In a city of over thirteen million he has his work cut out at the best of times. But now someone is killing women - seemingly unconnected women murdered in a chilling ritual, with strange objects placed carefully at their death scenes.

As Santosh and his team race to find the killer, an even greater danger faces Private India - a danger that could threaten the lives of thousands of innocent Mumbai citizens.




***Short & Sweet Reviews are short, quick reviews. These will mainly be used for series books where I have already done full reviews on some of the earlier books or for books that I feel will suffice with a quick review. These will not be used for review requests or blog tours.


My thoughts: As I make my way through the Private series this year, I have to say this one definitely hasn't been a favorite in the series so far. It still has a lot of the trademark qualities I've come to enjoy in the Private series - lots of action, many different threads going on at once, the Private team on the hunt for a killer - but something just didn't click for me. I think it's that I had a hard time connecting with this new Private team.  I didn't particularly like Santosh and that might have been the problem. But luckily, the mystery itself kept me interested enough to keep me from abandoning this book. Hopefully the next one will be better!
