Nelson DeMille’s latest book is the Panther and it is the sixth book in his John Corey series. It is not bad but not up to the Lion or the Lion’s Game. The Lion’s Game might be the best book in this series.
In this one, John and his wife Kate are sent to Yemen to hunt a terrorist who calls himself the Panther. The CIA might be playing games with John and Kate. (The CIA does not come off well in this series.)
Asad Khalil, the Lion, was a great villain. I don’t think the Panther is as compelling. Maybe it was a mistake for DeMille to give the villain of this new book the name Panther.
The book is read on CD by Scott Brick. As always, Brick does a good job.
