Private Games is another winner for “America’s #1 storyteller” (Forbes). This time out, James Patterson takes readers on an action-packed thrill ride to London where Private, the world’s most renowned investigation firm, has been commissioned to provide security for the 2012 Olympic Games. The company boasts the smartest, fastest and most technologically advanced agents in the business, but single father of twins Peter Knight, one of their best, is handed an almost impossible situation. With the opening ceremony just hours away, a high-ranking member of the Games’ organizing committee is dead and his murder was nothing less than a deliberate, precisely calculated execution.
A break in the gruesome crime comes when newspaper reporter Karen Pope receives a letter from a person who calls himself Cronus, claiming responsibility. And his aim is clear: to restore the Olympics to their ancient glory by destroying all those who have wrought dishonor through greed and corruption.
As in any race, time is of the essence. Which means Peter and Karen must stop a mad, criminal genius from crossing the finish line before they do, or this Olympic Games will go down in history for record losses—of life.

As usual James Patterson outdid himself. This is one book that you cannot put down. The whole Private series is great.
Love the Private series. This one is even better than the last. I want to stay up all night to read it. Everytime i do, I reread it again to make sure I didn't miss anything.
The scenerio of the book possibably of happening that it is scarry. I idea of a terrorest trying to destroy the olympics for their own glory is mind boggling. I enjoyed the book and was on the edge of my seat till the very end. It's a great read..try it and you will see.
As usual, Patterson is in top form. I have read the other Private books and I like
the new format. Taking this book overseas gave us a new look at Private. Very good.
I was reading the reviews to see if this book was worth getting,but 4 out of the 5 reviews made no sense! Does anyone review this site? Darlene's review was the only one that was good!Anyone else review this book?
