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, 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.

I've loved all of Patterson's series book. Right up there with Alex Cross, is the Private series. Another score from one of my favourite fiction writers!

I like James Patterson books a lot, even the ones he is co-authoring. That said, the PRIVATE books generally are also a fun read, but not quite up to the same level as his stand-alone's. This one is the same - very entertaining and interesting settings and stories, but with a few too many improbable things popping up to save the day at the last minute.

I really like this book, the Private novels, and James Patterson!
~This one picks up where Private London ends. It's got action, adventure, and one of my favorite heroes. As an English major I can and do appreciate all genres; take it for the entertainment value it's intended for, and you won't be disappointed :D

Good grief this was awful. Much of it seemed to be lifted right out of Angels and Demons. The best thing I can say for works like this from the Patterson factory are that they are very fast reading.

The romance between members of Private weakens the story line. Please don't turn this series into a romantic novel.

Another action filled addition to the Private Series. Enjoyed this one more that Private Paris. Lots of action and drama in typical Patterson fast page turning fashion. Two interesting story lines keep you going to the finish line.
