Publisher's Summary

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.

Totally satisfying

I was almost late for work on release date (not OK as evil minions do NOT set their own hours!) because I was immersed in the Kindle version and waiting to download the audio book. Scott Brick and Nelson DeMille never disappoint. Amazing! These guys and Brian Haig are the reason I have an Audible membership.

Another gem by DeMille

I've liked all the books I've listened to by this author, but this might be the best one so far. Scott Brick did an excellent job of bringing out the slime that comprised the antagonist. I like my bad guys to be really bad, and Asad Khalil is about as slimy as they get. John Corey makes for a good character as does his wife. Boris was quite interesting too. But make no mistake about it, this book was titled The Lion for a reason. A riveting and satisfying ride.
