Having James Patterson's name on a book cover is enough to intrigue some readers to pick it up. For those of you who don't fit into this fan-base, and don't know where to start in the multitude of books available from this author, I wanted to highlight a fairly new series which caught my attention after hearing a rave review from our office manager. The series started in 2010 with Private, which introduces former Marine helicopter pilot Jack Morgan now running a private investigation company. The second book in the series is Private: #1 Suspect, and the third, coming out on February 13th 2012 is called Private Games (ISBN 9780316206822).
The upcoming book is part of the series, but can stand on its own since it had mostly new characters. The story is set in London leading up to and during the 2012 summer Olympic Games. If you're looking for a book to take your mind off the dreary winter weather, check this one out!
