If you are a fan of Patterson and the “Private” series, then you will enjoy the book. If you are looking for more than a diversion similar to what you would find in a television show, then this is probably not the book for you.

Synopsis

The world's most exclusive detective agency opens a new office - in Australia!

With the best detectives in the business, cutting edge technology and offices around the globe, there is no investigation company quite like Private. Now, at a glittering launch party overlooking the iconic Opera House, Private Sydney throws open its doors . . .

Craig Gisto and his newly formed team have barely raised their glasses, however, when a young Asian man, blood-soaked and bullet-ridden, staggers into the party, and what looks like a botched kidnapping turns out to be a whole lot more.

Within days the agency's caseload is full. But it is a horrific murder in the wealthy Eastern Suburbs and the desperate search for a motive that stretches the team to the limit. Stacy Friel, friend of the Deputy Commissioner of NSW Police, isn't the killer's first victim - and as the bodies mount up she's clearly not the last . . .

While nearly everything about Private Down Under is entirely predictable, that’s likely its appeal – readers know what they’re getting into when they turn the first page, and they get it. Nowhere has the concept of branding been more embraced and exploited than with Patterson...
