Publisher Comments:

When The Lion's Game was published in 2000, it was an instant critically acclaimed New York Times bestseller. Now Special Agent John Corey returns to confront Asad Khalil, the Libyan terrorist known as . . . THE LION The last time Federal Agent John Corey of the Anti-Terrorist Task Force heard from Khalil, he claimed he was defecting to the U.S.-only to unleash a deadly reign of destruction on American soil. As Corey and FBI agent Kate Mayfield chased him across the country, Khalil eliminated his victims one by one and then disappeared without a trace. Now, after the events of September 11, Khalil has resurfaced, returning to murder a select group of enemies, with Kate and John topping the list. As the bodies begin to pile up, John Corey finds himself back on the hunt. The Lion is a killing machine on a mission of revenge-and Corey will stop at nothing to find and kill Khalil before he himself is killed. Let the pulse pounding begin.-New York Post (Beach Book Pick) You won't be able to put this one down, and you learn about the roots of terrorism to boot. -Lisa Scottoline, on The Today Show

Synopsis:

In this 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, 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.
