The hero of DeMille's No. 1 New York Times best seller, Plum Island, Corey has been through a lot, not the least of which was surviving three bullet wounds while serving on the NYPD. Now he signs on with the government's Anti-Terrorist Task Force in an attempt to stop an alleged Libyan terrorist known simply as "The Lion". The Lion has the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey. And now he's loose in America. Can John Corey stop him? Or has his allotment of luck just run out? Nelson DeMille spins an epic tale of heart-pounding suspense.
"DeMille has created the kind of rambunctious hero that readers will want to see again." ( Chicago Tribune)

Brilliant, Priceless and Entertaining.
The Lion?s Game ranks as one of my favorite this year. It has intriguing theme, realistic characters, interesting quotes, witticisms and plenty of educational/thought provoking issues.
Nelson DeMille skillfully uses witty escapism to deal with sensitive and frightening subjects. He holds your attention by crisscrossing between the wisecracking hero and the vicious master adversary. The Lion?s Game could be leaner; conversely, it is well written and entertaining.
Scott Brick is a superb narrator, although, with the exception of the Arabic taxi drivers and Boris the Russian, all his characters sound the same. Okay, not all narrators are as adept as Michael Beck.
