And here's the thing that tells me that even the author realises it's crap: The review on his own website has the main character as Nigel Steele who is the single father of twins.
The audio book has it as Peter Knight who is cursed with the brats. By the way these kids at the age of three have a pretty advanced vocabulary although still haven't mastered the crapper.
And there was one point at which the knicker elastic of my suspension of disbelief twanged: Imagine you have twins, would you hire a nanny you met in the park after about two minutes of conversation?
Can't tell the difference between Bosnian and Estonian mate? Err you're a private investigator and your kids aren't worth a little background research?
Does faecal incontinence lower the paternal responsibility imperative that much? Well it just happens that she's a Bosnian war criminal in league with an insane Olympian purist out to cleanse the Games.
Although, to be fair, she did manage to get one of the kids to use the bog. Goes a small way to making up for her promising to shoot them using an AK with a coke bottle silencer.

Centered around the Olympics it was an enjoyable read; I give this one 4stars! Mar 31, Delaney Diamond rated it really liked it Shelves: mystery-thriller.
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 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.
They have very well-developed motor skills for toddlers. Glad I didn't let it cloud my decision.
The ending seemed a bit over the top and kind of gross. I could've done without the visual and wished Knight had been able to defeat Cronus in a different way.
What I did like: It's a fast-paced book that kept my attention right from the beginning. In fact, it started in the middle of the action and I got a glimpse into the mind of the villain and just how out-of-control he was because of his god-complex.
I couldn't flip the pages fast enough during the action sequences. About half-way through the book, I figured out who the villain was. Usually in a mystery, I go back and forth between different people, but this time I knew it was him.
Even when Patterson tried to throw me off the scent near the end, I still held fast to my belief. This was a good read overall. View all 5 comments.

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 In an effort to broaden my horizons into best-selling fiction that my patrons read, I decided to pick this up.
Their research of London seemed limited to Fodor's guide and a crappy British phase book. Hence we're left with talk of "bangers" and "a spot of tea".
The dectective's twins are just turning 3 during the games yet actions are way off for that age group acting more than a few years ahead except for the son's speech.
I won't spoil anything, but the concluding action sequence is one of the most ridiculous endings I've ever come across.
I think I figured out Mr. Patterson's secret to publishing besides hiring a team of authors and that is to use zero editors. A quick run through spell and grammar checks seems the extent to which this book was subjected to.
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 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!
Oct 27, Mahoghani 23 rated it liked it Shelves: series-books , books-read-in , crime. Jack Morgan knows that in order to be the best at what you do, you must hire the best and pay them very well.
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 the story.
Another J? Oct 01, Katherine "Kj" Joslin rated it liked it Shelves: october , own. I didn't love the first two books of this series but this one is told from a slightly different angle, another office of the Private Agency during the Olympics.
I liked the fact that it was told from both monster and prey but in the end it was an easy mystery. I used these between heavier books as a "palate cleanser.
Aug 13, Peterb rated it it was ok. 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.
Then he explains that they have all been killed in a plane crash. Peter Knight is not as believable a character as Dan Carter and does not fit the role he filling in this book at all.
Very poor research for this book as the most basic error is made throughout the book. Great Britain enter a team for the games which is made up of athletes from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland yet throughout the book it is mentioning the England football team and other such rubbish.
Not what I was expecting from his usual very exacting detailed stories. The whole basis of the story is that this ex athlete, ex guardsman met up with three Balkan war ravaged female killers but none of the checks made by Private or any other agency ever showed up his service in the Balkans.
This fact is glossed over in about two paragraphs with no detail of how he might have hidden this information or in fact wiped it from his history.
If you have read the first two Private books then you will be disappointed with the superficial detail in the story and I would just read Private London, co written with Mark Pearson instead.
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 Summer Olympics being held in London. Peter Knight, who is head of security firm Private London, is called after an organizing committee member is murdered.
But it is soon apparent that Sir Denton Marshall wasn't the only target, it's the entire Olympic games! I love the Olympics, I missed this book in and found it shortly after the Rio Olympics finished.
The thrill of the book is an enjoyable one, although a little bit out-there. However, and this is much more a personal knit-pick than a real criticism but the research to certain aspects of the Olympics seem weak and not what you'd expect from an author like Patterson, even though the book was written in collaboration with Mark Sullivan.
For example there are numerous references to the United Kingdom team and the England football team when it really is Great Britain who compete in the games.
The short chapters do keep up a "just one more" feel to the book although I wasn't as gripped as you would expect by Patterson. View 2 comments. Apr 20, Cecile Msays rated it did not like it.
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 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 "Private Games" by James Patterson is about a detective agency named 'Private' and a detective in the agency named Knight.
Knight soon realizes that Cronus is trying to attack the games because he feels they are a mockery of the original olympic games.
Cronus attacks everybody he believes to have corrupted it, including athletes and the olympic committee. Knight is on the hunt for Cronus, trying to stop him before he massacre's the entire games, while also trying to take care of his twins with the help of a nanny, who is in fact one of Cronus's three "sisters" which he uses to help his evil plots.
Unfortunately, this book was extremely predictable, with no interesting twist at the end like most mystery novels have, so overall I did not enjoy this book very much.
Apr 25, Matt rated it liked it Shelves: audiobook. 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.
Set against the backdrop of the upcoming London Olympics, Patterson sets a nice scene and A much better book than I expected it to be, as I am not a big 'newer series' fan of James Patterson.
Set against the backdrop of the upcoming London Olympics, Patterson sets a nice scene and paints a fairly believable storyline, with the villain causing issues with the Games and its athletes.
We get some good personal development as well, but still, some of the dialogue and minor plotlines remains hokey and a little shallow.
Then again, Patterson is not known for his deep plots save some of his more sappy books. Still, a good read and I sped through it, as I am sure most people could.
Great for that overseas flight as you head to the Olympics ;-! Good work, Mr. Keep churning them out May 22, elaynne rated it liked it. Downloaded from Audible.
