Publisher's Summary

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. 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.

    "Terrible reader"

    The story was okay but the man doing the reading was terrible in my opinion. I will avoid this reader again.

    "Not a part of the series"

    This book did not seem to be the sequential book for the Private series. Book 1 & 2 were great - good narrator. Story tied to each other, but this book was BAD! so much that i am worries to get the next book in line.

    "Not my favorite"

    If you think this will be about Jack Morgan, guess again. Jack is only a minor character. However I did enjoy the twist at the end. I never dreamed who Chronos actually was. Also, I was not thrilled with the narrator. While some complained of his accent, I was more bothered by the drastic changes in volume. One minute I could barely hear him, the next my speaker was blasting.

    "Disappointed with Narration"

    I had listened to the first two in this series and loved them! This was such a HUGE change in narration style, I simply would not subject myself to it. If I had been listening to this style from the beginning of the series, it might have not been such a shock. I do not know what they were thinking! I returned the book.

    "Devil at the Olympic Gamea"

    James Patterson always writes fast moving mysteries that show Private as a top crime fighting organization. The characters in the story are truly mythical devils come to life in modern day London. Love it and kept me entertained throughout. Who doesn't like a superhero?

    "Crap"

    Mr. Patterson must have phoned it in. Did not even finish before i returned the book. Even returned the next in the series. Too much fluff and not enough stuff.

    "Didn’t finish"

    The narrator was not for me.
    It was hard to tell one character from another.

    "Page turner = can't stop listening"

    True, the narrator at the beginning was a little hard to follow but then it is imperative to know what is Kronos next step. I found the plot and characters interesting with a good twist here and there. Overall great audiobook!

    "A real Page turner"

    This was a little of a twist on the Private series, but a good story, that had me sitting on the edge of my seat. I am only sorry that we won't continue to hear about Inspector Knight, a character I grew to love.
