flawlessly and the stage is set for one of the greatest ever showcases of
sporting excellence. 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 fiance of Knight's mother.
Having only recently lost close friends and colleagues at Private London in
a fatal plane crash, this is another torturous blow for Knight and
threatens to push him over the edge. 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. As the most talented athletes in the world
gather in London, Knight knows he must find Sir Denton's killer. Thousands
of lives are at stake...
