Private, the elite security company, is providing services for the 2012 Olympics being held in London. The city of London is primed to show itself off in the best possible light as they host athletes from all around the globe.
But someone has a grudge against the Olympics and has chosen 2012 as the year to exact revenge. First killed is Peter Knight’s soon-to-be stepfather, who is decapitated in his garden. A missive from the murderer soon follows, accusing Sir Denton Marshall of crimes against the games. Knight, part of Private’s London team, vows to discover who has sent his mother into another spiral of grief at the loss of her love. Dealing with nearly-three year old twins and trouble keeping nannies, Knight does his best to save the Olympics.
As each murder takes place and is explained, the unknown Cronus terrifies the world. No one knows where he will strike next. Knight, the Private London team, and other law enforcement personnel fight to stay ahead of him. Soon it is revealed that he is being aided by a trio of Bosnian war criminals known as The Furies, adding to the twists and turns.
As always, this was a quick read with tons of page-turning action. I loved the backdrop of the Olympics and Cronus is a worthy opponent. I had fun guessing the bad guy.
