Overview

The Games: A Private Novel by James Patterson


In the #1 bestselling series, Private's Jack Morgan must hunt down a killer before the Olympic games begin in Rio.


Rio de Janeiro, Brazil knows how to throw a party. So it's a natural choice to host the biggest spectacles in sports: the World Cup and the Olympics. To ensure that the games go off without a hitch, the organizers turn to Jack Morgan, head of the world's greatest international security and consulting firm. But when events are this exclusive, someone's bound to get left off the guest list.


Two years after the crisis nearly spilled from the soccer field to the stands, Jack is back in Rio for the Olympics. But when his most prominent clients begin to disappear, and bodies mysteriously start to litter the streets, Jack is drawn deep into the heart of a ruthless underworld populated by disaffected residents trying to crash the world's biggest party.


With the world watching in horror, Jack must sprint to the finish line to defuse a threat that could decimate Rio and turn the games into a deadly spectacle. . . all before the games begin.

I stopped reading on page 215 Large Print edition. This is the first one I have given up on. Same plot, themes, BS, etc as any of the books from B.Thor, D.DiSilva, J.P. et al... Different names and locations but you know what it is and what happens. SORRY ! Get this one from the local library.

Enjoyed it because I just finished some historical books and needed a change which it delivered but the Private series is not one of my favorite Patterson series

James Patterson is always entertaining but these things always scare me to death because they are always so close to the truth. This is a great summer read.

Another typical James Patterson book. It was interesting, mysterious and of course there has to be a love story. The timing was good as the olympics are currently going on in Rio. I enjoyed it and read it in 2 days.
