'Private Moscow' is a breath-taking rollercoaster of a book. I can tell you now that Adam Hamdy fits hand in glove with Patterson. Hamdy really understands the way Patterson's books feel, and it definitely shows and in fact, if anything, Hamdy has made it even better. Well, he has certainly made it more explosive! I can tell you now, once you crack open 'Private Moscow' you will need to hold on to your ushanka hat (fyi: the furry Russian hat), as this is one ride that will take you up, down, sideways, with the odd corkscrew thrown in for good measure. I don't know about poor Jack Morgan and his Private Moscow associates, but I was exhausted with all the running, jumping and fighting Jack and his colleagues went through in just under 450 pages! It may be cold in Russia, but you'll be sweating buckets with excitement. When Patterson gets it right, it is astounding and with Hamdy in the driving seat, Patterson has found a kindred spirit. Hamdy was channelling Patterson. This is one of those thrillers that you let all expectations go and simply enjoy the ride. I loved it and hope Hamdy is put in the driving seat again with Patterson. They make a great team.
