The Games | James Patterson
10 posts | 9 read | 2 to read
Rio has spent years preparing to host the world during the Olympic games--but they didn't prepare for this... Rio de Janeiro, Brazil--home to beautiful white-sand beaches, gorgeous women, stunning natural beauty, and the world's largest Carnival celebration--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, the unflappable head of the renowned international security and consulting firm Private. But when events are this exclusive, someone's bound to get left off the guest list. Two years after the action nearly spilled from the field to the stands during soccer's championship match, Jack is back in Rio for the Olympics. But before the cauldron is even lit, the only thing more intense than the competition is the security risks. When prominent clients he's supposed to be protecting 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. As the opening ceremonies near, 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 from a joyous celebration into a deadly spectacle.

Raspberry Banana smoothie, current read (A Wrinkle in Time) and 3 free finds in the back that I got from the apartment swap downstairs 💓

I love James Patterson, but haven't read anything by Harlan Coben... hopefully it's good!

@TricksyTails this doesn't count against my book buying/library loan ban, cause they're free, right? 😂😂😂

SandyW I actually prefer Coben to Patterson 2y
SandyW ...I haven't read this one though. 2y
TricksyTails 😂😂😂 👍 You're so lucky to live somewhere that has so many free books! 2y

Mehso-so

This book was ok. Action packed as always but just not my favorite of the series. There was a lot about Jack's personal life thrown in that was pretty surprising and out of the blue. So yeah, it was ok. 3 stars⭐️⭐️⭐️

I'm always listening to at least 2 books and reading one physical book. This is one I'm listening to on CD in my car. I wanted to get it in the month since it's about the Olympics in Rio and it fits one of my challenges.
