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 over 10,000 competitors who represent more than 200 countries. The opening ceremony is still hours away when private investigator and single father of twins, Nigel Steele, is called to the scene of a ruthless murder. A high-ranking member of the games' organizing committee and his mistress have been killed. It is clear that it wasn't a crime of passion, but one of precise calculation and execution. Newspaper reporter Karen Pope receives a letter from a person who calls himself Cronus claiming responsibility for the murders. He also proclaims that he will restore the Olympics to their ancient glory and will destroy all who have corrupted the games with lies, cheating, and greed. Karen immediately hires Private to examine the letter, and she and Nigel uncover a criminal genius who won't stop until he has ended the games for good.

I enjoyed this book especially because I listened to it just after watching the Olympics. Would recommend. 7 of 10 for me.

This is a hilarious book. Totally far-fetched, even for a thriller. Couldn't stop laughing!

Interesting book in line with Patterson's other writings.

Just in time for the London 2012 Olympics, James Paterson & Mark Sullivan's new novel is about a madman who has commited a series of gruesome acts in the hopes that it will stop the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Can Peter Knight find out who he is, and stop him in time?

This story is nearly ruined with the unnecessary inclusion of young children for victimization. Nonetheless, the rating is lowered substantially because of it. 6 of 10 stars
