    1 thought on “Private Games”

    1. I thought I knew who cronus was but then there's a twist and it's someone you never would have guessed. Most of the book implies it's this one man but no! I really enjoyed this book. It will keep you up til all hours of the morning.

    2. I won't say this is the worst techno-thriller I have ever read. I read a lot of them. But my goodness, this book was awful!I've read other James Patterson books and some of his earlier stuff was pretty good. But in a techo-thriller, the author has to get the "techno" part absolutely right. And the "thriller" part has to at least hold up. In this book the techno was clangingly, distractingly inaccurate and fanciful. To the point of wanting to hurl the book across the room. The thriller part was s [...]

    3. Everything was on target for the 2012 Olympic Games to go off without a hitch in London – the planning had been intense, the security second to none. But no one had reckoned on a maniac with an agenda of his own. When Private London’s head of operations, Peter Knight, arrived at the scene of a murder and discovered the gruesome remains of a member of the games organising committee, he was shocked and horrified to discover the man was also his mother’s fiancé. But more brutal killings occu [...]

    4. 3-3.5*It was a pretty good read centered on terror killings at the London Summer Olympics. I found Peter’s character easy to like and actually very fun to read about. I was torn with follow the Private series as has them in order because of veering off from the main Private series but Jack was in this one also, and honestly I found it rather nice to read about some new characters. I am turn between 3-3.5* though because there were times when I wasn’t as interested. However, I did read this [...]

    5. Living in London during the Olympics and having a mild interest in Greek/Roman mythology, I thought this would be an intriguing listen for those early morning commutes on what turned out to be empty trains, thanks Boris.Imagine someone had briefed a sun journalist to write a thriller in a weekend, and at the last minute they're told the subject - the Olympics. There are clumsy fumbles all over it - a private security firm called F7 - yeah right who could that be? The names of the characters irri [...]

    6. I couldn't decide at first if I wanted to give this book a 3 or 4, but once I thought about it, I decided it did deserve a 4 because the things I didn't like were minor when I took the book in its totality. What I didn't like: Peter Knight's twins did a couple of things that I don't think children their age should be able to do. I was so surprised that at one point I ended up flipping back to reread passages to make sure I hadn't misread their age. They have very well-developed motor skills for [...]

    7. Loved this book!I love that you got to see another side of Private International, the London side this time, and it was so cool that this took place during the 2012 London Olympics! It was fast paced, lots of action, and the characters were great! I love Peter Knights character and I cannot wait to read another Private book that takes place in London!

    8. In an effort to broaden my horizons into best-selling fiction that my patrons read, I decided to pick this up. This will probably be my first and last foray into the publishing behemoth that is James Patterson.I know something is poorly written when I'm constantly thinking to myself, "I could write this". My expectations were pretty low and I was simply hoping to be entertained, but found even that a struggle. A few issues: 1. Their research of London seemed limited to Fodor's guide and a crappy [...]

    9. Cronus & his Furies invade the London Olympic Games. Jack Morgan knows that in order to be the best at what you do, you must hire the best and pay them very well. Take Peter Knight, Private London's best investigator, out to find the person or persons responsible for killing his mother's Fiancé abs Olympic committee member. The book is fast paced, energetic and will keep you turning the page. The killers' insight throughout the story invokes an explanation as well as suspenseful thrill to t [...]

    10. After reading the first book I decided to have a quick peek to check the order I should read the series because even on the website it seemed a bit slapdash. After reading the first couple of pages I found that Private London actually was a precursor to Private Games and I am glad that I read them in that order: 1 Private - 2 Private #1 Suspect - 3 Private London - 4 Private Games.When I started reading Private Games I thought who the hell is this Peter Knight, what has happened to Dan Carter? T [...]

    11. Knight realised that many of the athletes around him were pointing up at the huge video screens around the Olympic venue, all displaying the same three red words: OLYMPIC SHAME EXPOSED.This is the first of James Patterson's Private series that I have read and selected it based on the Olympic background more than series itself. A few references are made to previous additions but it is not critically important to have read the prior novels. The premise is based around the 2012 Summer Olympics bein [...]

    12. "Private Games" by James Patterson is about a detective agency named 'Private' and a detective in the agency named Knight. Knight is a man who's wife died after giving birth to his now 4 year old twins. The story begins with the murder of Knight's soon-to-be step-father, accompanied by a note regarding the 2012 Olympic Games in London. This story shifts to the point of view of the murderer, who calls himself Cronus, and Knight, who is trying to stop him. Knight soon realizes that Cronus is tryin [...]

    13. Downloaded from AudibleNarrated by: Paul PantingInitially, I wanted to just write "ho-hum" but it was a little better than that. Just.Private is a world-renowned security company hired to help provide security for the 2012 Olympics being held in London, England. Peter Knight, a widowed father of twins, is the British investigator assigned to the project. From the beginning, it seems that random tragedy is haunting the games but Chronos begins taking "credit" for the deaths. It becomes a race to [...]

    14. If you are bored of hearing about the London Olympics already, this, ironically, is *exactly* the book you need. Set during the London Olympics, a crazed former athlete starts a murder spree, starting with the Head of the London Organising Committee, but can 'Private' investigators find him before his final act of retribution. Lots of references to real places in London and what I presume James Patterson imagines as the opening ceremony and organisational arrangements. Otherwise, it will provide [...]

    15. I read James Patterson to remind myself that I can do this too, and I hope a tad bit better. Patterson books are always a fun read, and this was one per usual, though the final boss battle scene ended in such a comical way that I literally laughed out loud.

    16. As my two stars would suggest this was okay! But that's pretty much about it. This is far from the best book off the Patterson production line. I didn't really expect too much from this book though as I have not really liked this series compared to Patterson's other series novels. I despised Private, but actually quite liked Private: London, not so much for the story but due to certain parts of that book being set around where I live so I could atleast appreciate that the book had been well rese [...]

    17. So my mother-in-law came for a visit last week and, knowing I read a lot of books, she insisted I read this latest and greatest book by James Patterson. Of course, just about all of me defenses went up because: 1) It's a James Patterson book. Now, I've enjoyed some of his early Alex Cross books but his novel manufacturing machine that cranks out 12-15 new books per year from his "co-authors" is a real turn off for me; 2) It's a recommendation from somebody who reads a moderate amount but rarely [...]

    18. The year is 2012. The Location is London and the backdrop is that of Olympic Games. Can things get any bigger? Huge number of agents has been assigned to the security detail of anybody who is somebody at the games. They are the best at what they do and have the latest technology to back them up. A high ranking games official is brutally murdered and a man named Cronus sends a letter to a reporter Karen Pope claiming responsibility. Peter Knight gets involved in this case twice over as not only t [...]

    19. A much better book than I expected it to be, as I am not a big 'newer series' fan of James Patterson. The book was quite good at setting the hero and villain sections and did offer some great build-up as it gave first hand villain chapters, as well as some great background. A little longer than most Patterson novels, yet still the 130+ chapters to tease you into reading 'just one more before I put it down'.Set against the backdrop of the upcoming London Olympics, Patterson sets a nice scene and [...]

    20. Private has gone international and has been commissioned to provide security to the Olympic Games in London. After reading the other two books I was really looking forward to this one and what a disappointment, first none of the main characters are carried over with the exception of Jack and maybe a couple of others all with minor parts. Knight who has two small hellish children is the main man in this overdone, unrealistic story from start to finish.I am not sure who wrote it but it certainly w [...]

    21. The best thing about this book is the setting at the London Olympics, especially since they haven't happened yet. I had the John Williams themes playing in my head the whole time -- build in soundtrack. Other than that, this book is fairly lame. Maybe it's the page long chapters that disrupt the flow of the story. This seems to be a Patterson thing (although who knows how much of the writing he actually does himself) that is driving me crazy. The "twists and turns" are pretty predictable, the my [...]

    22. This book takes place during the soon-to-come London Olympic games. The plot was basic ridiculous. I felt that the setting was in a futuristic science fiction place instead of London of summer of 1912. The protagonist could be hit by a car, beat up, shot, etc etc and still leap buildings in a simple bound. It was just too unbelievable. Additionally, the guy has three-year-old twins, and these twins had the intellectual and emotional maturity of 14 year olds. I kept thinking this guy has never be [...]

    23. With the Olympic Games coming to London this summer, this is a very timely book. This is a new collaboration with James Patterson and Mark Sullivan. I liked the combination. Just like all of Patterson's books this one is fast paced and thrilling. Just enough Olympic facts to make an interesting read, but this did not take away from the overall plot. Instead it added to it.

    24. Ο Πίτερ Νάιτ, πράκτορας μιας από τις πιο φημισμένες εταιρείες ιδιωτικών ερευνών, φτάνει στον τόπο της δολοφονίας του σερ Ντέντον Μάρσαλ, εξέχοντος μέλους της Οργανωτικής Επιτροπής Ολυμπιακών Αγώνων Λονδίνου και αρραβωνιαστικού της μητέρας του. Μιας και η Οργανωτική Επιτρ [...]

    25. This book is ok and because the chapters are so short, it is a very quick read. It is set at the London 2012 Olympics and a terrorist is killing off the organisers, atheles and coaches. I'm pretty sure the games would not have continued in this situation but they do in this book. The reasons for the terrorist are quite vague and unclear and the main character ends up having his kids kidnapped by the terrorists (again for quite unclear reasons). A lot more thought went into the action in this boo [...]

    26. Another exciting book in the series about Private, an ultra high tech worldwide protection agency. This one was set at the London 2012 Olympics where a mysterious man who calls himself Cronus and three mysterious Eastern European sisters who call themselves the Furies manage to wreak havoc and murder on the Olympics which Private and a newspaper sports reporter rookie named Karen Pope try to solve. Peter Knight of Private London is challenged in more ways than one. His weird designer mom's fianc [...]

    27. Took me much longer than usual to get into this & the end was very rushed & to be honest rather ridiculous!
