Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
In this eagerly awaited follow-up to The Lion's Game, John Corey, former NYPD Homicide detective and special agent for the Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is back. And, unfortunately for Corey, so is Asad Khalil, the notorious Libyan terrorist otherwise known as "The Lion." Last we heard from him, Khali had claimed to be defecting to the US only to unleash the most horrific reign of terrorism ever to occur on American soil. While Corey and his partner, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, chased him across the country, Khalil methodically eliminated his victims one by one and then disappeared without a trace.
Now, years later, Khalil has returned to America to make good on his threats and take care of unfinished business. "The Lion" is a killing machine once again loose in America with a mission of revenge, and John Corey will stop at nothing to achieve his own goal -- to find and kill Khahil.

About the author

Biography of DeMille, Nelson

Novelist Nelson DeMille was born in New York City on August 23, 1943. He attended Hofstra University for three years, then joined the Army and went to Officer Candidate School. He was commissioned a First Lieutenant and served in Vietnam as an infantry platoon leader with the First Calvary Division. He received the Air Medal, Bronze Star, and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry while in the service. He eventually returned to Hofstra University and received a degree in political science and history.

His first writings were NYPD detective novels, but his first major novel, By the Rivers of Babylon, was published in 1978. His other works include Cathedral, The Talbot Odyssey, Word of Honor, The Charm School, The Gold Coast, The General's Daughter, Spencerville, Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Up Country, Night Fall, and Wild Fire.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2010-09-15)

A weekend of skydiving gets an even greater jolt of excitement when Asad Khalil, a Libyan terrorist first introduced in DeMille's (www.nelsondemille.net) New York Times best seller The Lion's Game (2000)-also available from Hachette Audio-drops from the sky to continue his vendetta against Kate Mayfield and Det. John Corey. Series narrator Scott Brick (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09) demonstrates a particular affinity for Corey, bringing humor and self-deprecation to a sometimes abrasive character. Fast paced and action-packed; sure to please thriller fans.

Review by Library Journal (2010-06-15)

The anti terrorist team of John Corey and Kate Mayfield return to do battle with the murderous terrorist Asad Khalil, a.k.a. the Lion ( The Lion's Game). Khalil has come back to wreak vengeance on those responsible for the bombing raid in Libya that killed his family. He also targets John and Kate for their efforts in thwarting his diabolical and sadistic plans. Set shortly after 9/11, the action picks up quickly and doesn't slow down in this superbly written thriller.

Corey is his usual irreverent self and has to match wits with the Lion after Kate is badly injured. While the Lion murders his way across the country, Corey and the others rightly suspect that he is being funded by al-Qaeda, and his masters want him not only to exact his personal revenge but to commit an atrocity on a par with the World Trade Center attacks. Thus, the chase is on.

Verdict: DeMille's latest is a fast-paced grabber of a thriller. Highly recommended.
