Overall, I highly recommend Private Moscow to fans of the series and those who enjoy a fast-paced, engaging thriller.
This is a well-written, fast-paced novel for lovers of action fiction. It begins with Jack Morgan, superstar detective, witnessing the assassination of a good friend and, determined to bring the killer to justice, he becomes involved in a complicated case involving espionage and other killings.
I enjoyed this story a lot. I've always been a fan of espionage thrillers and this one was very interesting to read. Though, the plot is not very unique when it comes to Russia and America having their people deeply embedded in each other's organizations. But the assassin, the chase, and the investigation in Russia was very captivating. Jack Morgan's character is so well written, cool as a cucumber but tough as nails. Loved it !
The dash from the embassy in Russia and the subsequent flight action was very thrilling and a little unbelievable how everything worked out in Jack's favor. But, I don't mind, it was a good escape. The final layer of this espionage scandal was terrifying, in the sense that everything is so unpredictable when it comes to world politics. The countries need to keep dodging traps laid by their competitors. Such a high stakes game, this !
Once again the Private series knocks it out of the park! I love this series and love getting back into the lives of the people in the book! I hope that Jack & Justine can actually make it work again! This was a great mix of Private Russia & Private NYC and I hope for more mashups of different regions of Private in the future!!
