Publisher's Summary

July 2012: The Games have arrived in London. Preparations have gone flawlessly and the stage is set for one of the greatest ever showcases of sporting excellence. But one man has a devastating plan. Having waited years for this chance, he is now ready for vengeance.

When Sir Denton Marshall, a key member of the London Olympic organising committee, is found decapitated in his garden, Peter Knight, head of Private London, is called to the scene. Private are working with the organising committee on the security for the Games, so Denton Marshall was a valuable client. But there is a more personal link: Marshall was also the fiancé of Knight's mother.

Having only recently lost close friends and colleagues at Private London in a fatal plane crash, this is another torturous blow for Knight and threatens to push him over the edge. But it soon becomes clear that Denton Marshall's murder is no isolated incident, and that the killer's number one target is the Games itself.

As the most talented athletes in the world gather in London, Knight knows he must find Sir Denton's killer. Thousands of lives are at stake....

    "keep it private"

    Ok - I seem to have rated this 4 stars...yet thinking about how much the book has meant to me now...looking back....mmmmm. I liked it, I enjoy the private series a lot. But at the moment this one ranks the lowest. I will certainly read it again, but for me it lacked mystery, The ultimate villan trying to be tracked down was too straight forward despite the novel generally being well written. The suspense generally was good with solid twists and I wasnt sure which way the story would go but ultimately it was bound into a rather obvious conclusion. Read the other private novels first.

    "A "must-read""
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Read this just before going to London 2012 so it helped put it into context and was a great read as it was so plausible. Just as the games were years in the planning, with all that London has seen, it seemed plausible that terrorists could have been planning for years too.
    You don't need to have attended to read this though- the plot twists and turned and the pressure of time is palpable as it reaches its conclusion.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Anyone who had a cool electronic gadget gets my vote!


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The ending was a real cliff-hanger- not able to get out of the car if I was listening in it and keen to get home from work just to turn it back on again. Really quite addictive.

    "Great story around the Olympics"

    Good story set around the Olympics. The audio equivalent of a page turner, with enough unexpected turns to keep the plot interesting but not confusing. Have listened to it several times.

    "A good read but ........."

    Being a games maker I had to read this book. If you are missing the games now this is one to read. Quite enjoyed it but felt it fell a bit flat towards the end of the story. Was a bit unbelievable and I felt the ending was disappointing possibly rushed. But it does take you back to all the fun we had this summer!
