Description

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.

    So while reading the "Alex Cross" Series, I got to the book- "Alex Cross's Trial"! And after forcing myself to finish it!! I then had to make myself continue on with finishing the rest of the series!!! Because of how awfully was!!! Maybe it was just because of the writer that Patterson partnered up with for this book!! But whatever it was, I was extremely disappointed!!! And now reading the private series, just by the title and the reviews I've read about "Private Games"! I'm concerned that I'll be wasting my time reading it!!! Cause I've got the gut feeling that it's going to be awful!!!

    I gotta say, this book was pretty dumb. It was not as good as the first two. I think I'll stop here. Really? Lightening hitting the Leatherman? Really? Sigh.
