After reading "Private" and enjoying it much, much more than most recent Patterson books, I was eagerly looking forward to reading "Private London". I found the storyline, of a terrorist attack on the Olympic Games in London, to be believable, and the overall story entertaining. Patterson never does explain how Private makes the huge amounts of money necessary to have all the uber-expensive toys they have, but I guess that's what they mean when they use the term, "willing suspension of disbelief". Mark Pearson may just be a better writer than Patterson's other "co-writers". If you like the Patterson stories, this is one of the better ones.
