Synopsis

On your mark

Private, the world's most renowned investigation firm, has been commissioned to provide security for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Its agents are the smartest, fastest, and most technologically advanced in the world, and 400 of them have been transferred to London to protect more than 10,000 competitors who represent more than 200 countries.

Get set

The opening ceremony is hours away when Private investigator and single father of twins, Peter Knight, is called to the scene of a ruthless murder. A high-ranking member of the games' organizing committee has been killed. It's clear to Peter that this wasn't a crime of passion, but one of precise calculation and execution.

Die

Newspaper reporter Karen Pope receives a letter from a person who calls himself Cronus claiming responsibility for the murders. He promises to restore the Olympics to their ancient glory and to destroy all those who have corrupted the games with lies, corruption, and greed. Immediately, Karen hires Private to examine the letter, and she and Peter uncover a criminal genius who won't stop until he's completely destroyed the modern games. "America's #1 storyteller" (Forbes) delivers an exhilarating, action-packed thriller that brings the splendor and emotion of the Olympics to a wildly powerful climax.

Not as much about the company PRIVATE as I expected but @ least a cameo was given. Introduction to Peter Knight - head of Private London, is a good one. A good book, kept the pages turning as usual. Always light in his plots, with everyone rich!

I love the Alex Cross series so I figured I'd try something different from Patterson. The story line is completely different from his other stuff which is nice because sometimes authors write different stories that are to similar. Very well written and hard to put down. Definitely a must read for Patterson fans.

Not up to the standard set by the prior novels. A bit too saccarine for me.
