Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen-one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole" bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders-and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost. As latecomers to a deadly game, John and Kate don't know the rules, the players, or the score. What they do know is that there is more to their assignment than meets the eye-and that the hunters are about to become the hunted. Filled with breathtaking plot turns and told in John Corey's inimitable voice, THE PANTHER is a brilliant depiction of one of the most treacherous countries in the world and raises disturbing questions about whether we can ever know who our enemies - or our allies - really are.

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 (2012-10-12)

Former NYPD Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey (The Lion) is back, with all his wit and cynicism intact. With one major terrorist capture under his belt, he is now under pressure to apprehend the Panther, the al-Qaeda mastermind behind the 2000 bombing of the USS Cole. Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, travel to Yemen on one of the most dangerous assignments of their careers. What awaits them is a country in turmoil, where every road holds the threat of a suicide bomber or terrorist attack.

To make matters worse, no person is above suspicion, including the agents already in place to assist them. The excitement and suspense grow as Corey and his wife get closer to the al-Qaeda camp where the Panther may be hiding.

Verdict: Despite the hefty 600-plus-page length, which might intimidate some readers, DeMille's latest novel takes us on a nail-biting thrill ride to rival the other titles in this series. The dead-pan humor does grow a little tiresome when every conversation seems to be another opportunity for Corey to insert a sarcastic comment, but for fans, Corey's wit is one of his most beloved characteristics. Die-hard fans and new readers will discover hours of entertainment here.

Review by Library Journal (2013-03-15)

In this sixth thriller featuring anti terrorist agent John Corey and his beautiful FBI-agent wife, Kate Mayfield, the two are sent on a highly dangerous assignment in Yemen to arrest or kill the ruthless Al Qaeda murderer known as the Panther. They were handpicked for the assignment because the CIA is using them as bait to lure the target out of hiding. Scott Brick does an excellent job reading-he captures John Corey's sarcastic humor and provides the listener with many laugh-out-loud moments. His foreign accents are flawless, and each character has a unique voice and tone. The abridgment is seamless.

Verdict: Highly recommended for thriller collections.
