    Private No.1 Suspect is the second book in the Jack Morgan series by James Patterson. At first sight I thought that, wonder of wonders, Patterson had done this one all by himself. But then I noticed in very faint print at the bottom of the front cover, Maxine Paetros name. So, co-written, once again. Private Investigations, Jack Morgans very exclusive investigation firm, is handling several cases: a Mafia boss wants Private to find his hijacked shipment of prescription drugs; a hotel owner wants Private to find the person who is garrotting male guests; a movie producer wants Private to keep his young star out of trouble with young girls; and, at the top of Jack Morgans list is finding who murdered his colleague and ex-lover, Colleen Molloy, in Jacks bedroom with his own gun, a crime for which he is the number one suspect. There is plenty of action in the form of fisticuffs, gunplay and car chases, some jail time and court-room scenes, some not-terribly-clever detective work, a bit of double-crossing the Mob and a rather bizarre confrontation with Jacks evil twin brother, Tommy. Pattersons trade-mark short chapters mean about 300 pages of reading in a 400-page book. An OK read.
