Every one of Nelson DeMille's books are like a delicious treat to be treasured and savored. Meticulously researched, cleverly written--a master story teller to whom every single written word is meaningful. No wasted words or characters. Two of his wittiest and most clever characters, John Corey and Paul Brenner unite in this on-topic masterpiece that is too close to current events to ever be made into a movie. It is a shame, as all his books should be movies. Just as John Travolta brought wise-cracking Paul Brenner to life in the movie rendition of The General's Daughter; a movie with him and the Corey character would be great. But relish DeMille's latest masterpiece; he has the recipe that so many authors have tried for and failed: humor, well-researched and intricate plot, no gratuitous violence or sex, and not a single wasted word. All wonderful. By the way, do listen to the epilogue. It is worthwhile hearing the author's own personage as it blends with that of his characters.

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.
