Publisher's Summary

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 (the sixth book in the series) 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.

Good Corey Story

I admit this book could have been cut down, probably by about 100 pages. DeMille shovels a gigantic amount of background information about Yemen, the Middle East over all, drones, and U.S. defense efforts against terrorism. This information is necessary, but I get the sense editing was tossed aside. Still, I enjoyed this John Corey entry despite it being the weakest in the series. Corey is still a wonderful character, filled with with and sarcasm, which is how I like my heroes. I really do like Kate, John Corey's wife, but she is reduced to acting like his mother this time around. Which is to bad, because Kate is as strong a character as Corey. You get patriotism, really evil bad guys, betrayal and loyalty. Those who give this story 1 star do it a disservice because it is still a fun time.

Exciting Nelson DeMille novel with great narration

Would you consider the audio edition of The Panther to be better than the print version?

I really enjoyed this audiobook. The narrator did a great job of giving the characters personalities. I enjoyed John Corey's off the cuff one liners and the narrator's delivery was excellent.


Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

The plot was very exciting. I really felt like I was in the story. The authors descriptions of the characters and the settings were detailed enough to create a compelling story but not too much.


Which scene was your favorite?

The penultimate chapter where the group tracks down the Panther and the final encounter between John and the Panther is fantastic.
