"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's 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's ended the games for good. "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"--… (mer)

I thought this was really good. Like all of his books it kept me hanging on until the very end. I thought I had the killer all worked out but was completely surprised at the end. ( )

Still not sure I am hooked on this series. Wasn't crazy about the story line in this one but it did keep me guessing. ( )

Private Games is an entertaining thriller and fairly fast paced. The Private of the title is a security charged with providing said security during the London Olympic Summer Games. As the book opens in July 2012, a Very Bad Man is about to disrupt the games in cruel ways, although very clever. As athletes begin to be murdered, can the Olympic Games be stopped to potentially save lives or is there too much else at stake. ( )

This was entertaining and fast paced like any JP book. Made me wonder though if someone could really get away with something like that at the Olympics. ( )

A very quick read with short chapters but plenty of action. A very good book. ( )
