Private Royals by James Patterson and Rees Jones || Book Review

Another quick and easy read from James Patterson and this time I didn’t make the same mistake as with the other BookShots read, I haven’t read any of the books from the Private series (yet) so there was no way I was spoiling anything for myself.

DISCLAIMER: This review could contain possible spoilers based on my opinions. All opinions and views are my own.

Originally published: 2016

Pages: 125
Format: Paperback

Plot from GoodReads:

Jack Morgan is visiting Peter Knight and the team in the London branch of his investigation agency, Private.

At a cocktail party the night before the Trooping the Colour parade for the Queen’s 90th birthday, Jack receives a phone call from the Duke of Aldershot saying that his daughter, Abbie, has been kidnapped. He needs Private on the case – one word to the police and Abbie will be killed.

Jack will have to find Abbie before 11:00 a.m. the next morning, or the kidnapping will turn to murder. 


This book had some crazy twists that were a nice surprise as some of the plots are quite predictable from James Patterson usually.

I enjoyed the duo that was Morgan and Knight, and add a missing royal to build on some suspense. The collection of characters gave the story a nice edge.


A nice quick read to enjoy when you need an hour or two to spare.

My Rating:

The book has a rating of 3.87 on GoodReads. I gave it a 4.
