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 for the murders.

I enjoyed this book especially because I listened to it just after watching the Olympics. Would recommend. 7 of 10 for me.

This is a hilarious book. Totally far-fetched, even for a thriller. Couldn't stop laughing!

Interesting book in line with Patterson's other writings.

Just in time for the London 2012 Olympics, James Paterson & Mark Sullivan's new novel is about a madman who has commited a series of gruesome acts in the hopes that it will stop the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Can Peter Knight find out who he is, and stop him in time?

This story is nearly ruined with the unnecessary inclusion of young children for victimization. Nonetheless, the rating is lowered substantially because of it. 6 of 10 stars
