James Patterson’s (& Mark Sullivan’s) Private Berlin is the fifth and latest instalment in the Private series, and I love the fact that in this series we get to visit different locations around the world. So when I sat down to read this book, I was excited for two reasons; first, because James Patterson is one of the most popular authors, and second is that I haven’t read any of Mark Sullivan’s works before.

John Grisham is back, and this time with a sequel to his first and most popular book A Time to Kill (1989). The book is a surprise in terms of characters and fluidity of narration, which would suffice for both Grisham fans and new comers to the legal thriller genre.
