I loved Detective John Corey’s humor and sarcasm. This main character’s demeanor and attitude against authority spices this tale of espionage, terrorism, and romance.  John Corey’s and his partner Kate Mayfield’s assignment is to capture the Libyan terrorist Asad Khalil, aka “The Lion.”

This is the first book I read by Nelson Demille, but it won’t be the last. The book is fast-paced with lots of action, character interaction, and major twists. I love way John Corey pieces together the Lion’s game to understand what the terrorist’s real mission is and how to thwart it, or at least try to do so.

If you like books that keep you hanging until the end, this one won’t disappoint.
