James Patterson strikes again with the second story about the security
company known as Private. This is a series I can live with forever.
The story begins in London with the mad ramblings of the killer
who calls himself Kronos. He has decided he is one of those truly
superior beings destined by the gods to do great things. Of course,
he lists several others he considers superior. Adolf Hitler is on
The scene shifts to the venue where the Olympic Games were to be
held. It is July 2012. Private security agent Knight ran to the
scene of the crime. A member of the Olympic Organization Committee
had been murdered, beheaded. As one of those responsible for security
at the Olympic Games, Private would help solve this crime as soon
For Knight, the death of Denton Marshall hit close to home. Knight's
mother, Amanda, was to have married Marshall on Christmas Eve. As
he stood in Marshall's yard, Michael Lancer, another member of that
committee, ran up to him to ask if the word about Marshall was true.
After a brief conversation, Lancer ran across the street. A black
cab bore down on Lancer, trying to run him down. Knight knocked
Lancer out of the way, but the cab clipped Knight.
Private Games is full of great writing, well rounded characters,
and a wonderful plot. The action is nonstop as Knight and Private's
owner, Jack Morgan, chase Kronos through London and the surrounding
areas to stop him and his Three Furies. Meanwhile, the body count
is piling up. Athletes are dropping, if not dying outright, then,
dying shortly thereafter.
This is not a book you want to put down, as the plot unfolds quickly.
If you're doing housework or yard work, listen to Private Games
and you'll work faster.
