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.

    I believe those who chose to not like the book just did understand the humor. Mr DeMille is a one in a million author. As a 2 TOD in-country Vet, I salute another one of us who made it back and turned the horror into prose, a useful past time giving a taste of what many of us experienced.

    You've gotta love John Corey! I can't wait for the continuation of this series....hopefully John & Kate have a long life of crime fighting ahead! I've laughed out loud at Corey's sense of humor as well as gasped in horror at the depravity of some of the evil carried out by main characters like Kalil! I hope there are many more stories still to be told in this series!

    In the end, The Lion did not quite stand up to the original. I missed the even plot splits between Corey's activities and Khalil's...a little too much Corey in this one (though you have to love Corey's dialogue). It's just that we really learned about Khali's motivation in the first and here it was pretty much just cat and mouse without the same depth of plot. That said, I still enjoyed it immensely, finished it quickly and am sad that The Lion's story is over.

    If you bite you nails or your cuticles when you are nervous, be sure to wear your gloves! What more can I say but while I was chewing away, I was laughing out loud with the un-PC-like jokes that come from this talented writer's head.

    Nelson DeMille is a fabulous writer and an exceptional story teller. The Lion's Game was superb. The Lion could have been another superb sequel. But, it's not. Too bad. All the wit and cynicism of the main character, John Corey, is still there, however, the pacing of the plot is haphazard. The suspense builds erratically and the finale is expected (John Corey actually falls for that?! After all he's been through with the Lion?) The ending was so abrupt that I thought I might have missed a chapter. I wanted a more satisfying ending to the several hundred pages of this story which started with The Lion's Game, all the way through The Lion--and a glimpse of the future for John and Kate. Call me a romantic but I think their story deserved a happy ending. Okay, even if it's an edgy-but-happy ending. Nelson, my money is still on you. You missed with The Lion, but you are still a great talent and I will buy your next book.

    Demille has out done himself with John Corey. Great read. Could not put the book down. Hated to have it end. Hope to John Corey again. Liked the interlaced humor on the fringe of catching the bad guy. The character, Tom Walsh, is boorish and needs to go.

    DeMille is so easy to read and can make you laugh with the sarcasm when the story is serious - hope to see another with John Corey soon!
