James Patterson writing with Mark Sullivan
July, 2012. The Games have arrived in London. But one man has a devastating plan. Having waited years for this chance, he is now ready for vengeance. When Sir Denton Marshall, a key member of the London Olympic organising committee, is found decapitated in his garden, Peter Knight, head of Private London, is called to the scene. Private are working with the organising committee on the security for the Games, so Denton Marshall was a valuable client. But there is a more personal link: Marshall was also the fiancé of Knight’s mother. But it soon becomes clear that Denton Marshall’s murder is no isolated incident, and that the killer’s number one target is the Games itself.
