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.
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.
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

1 . To Exfan
Posted March 22, 2012 by Beth , Boynton BeachI enjoy James Patterson very much and cannot wait for his new releases! To the "Exfan" for the record...Stone Barrington novels are written by Stuart Woods NOT James Patterson!!!
2 . No Longer to be trusted
Posted February 13, 2012 by Ex Fan of Patterson , TorontoIt is very hard to get excited by a new book by Patterson. The last two Stone Barrington ones were without plot and totally ridiculous. The Christmas Wedding was a full price book and under 100 pages. More of a Harlequin than a Patterson. Is he even writing these books or is it all by the co-author? I will no longer pay full price for one of his books. If I get as a hand-me-down or at the library I will read it but never buy one again. He is turning out a book a month!!! No wonder they are so bad.
