Publisher Comments:

John Corey returns in the new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nelson DeMille. 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 US government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost. As latecomers to a treacherous 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 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.

Review:

"Former NYPD detective John Corey brought down Libyan terrorist Asad Khalil, aka The Lion, in 2010's The Lion, and now he's hunting another big cat: Yemeni-American Bulus ibn al-Darwish al Numair, aka The Panther, one of the Al Qaeda masterminds behind the attack on the USS Cole that killed 17 American sailors in 2000. After being baited by their boss, Special Agent in Charge Tom Walsh, Corey and his FBI agent wife, Kate Mayfield, volunteer for the dangerous mission in Yemen, and they soon find themselves at the top of Al Qaeda's assassination list. A corrupt and ineffective government barely controls the cities, tribal chiefs rule the hinterlands, and U.S. operatives fear that Al Qaeda is growing stronger. Plus, Corey doesn't even trust other members of the U.S. team. Essentially chosen to serve as panther bait, Corey and Mayfield are equally dangerous predators and DeMille puts them through the wringer as attacks come from all sides when they head into the Badlands with a daring plot to trap their target. Tricks and twists abound in this fast moving thriller where everyone has their own agenda and survival is the ultimate goal. (Oct.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

I have enjoyed Nelson DeMille's books ever since I started reading them 20 years ago. I especially enjoy the John Corey books. His sarcasm and wit make me laugh, plus I feel his books are educational, and keep you going and guessing until the end. I know many people didn't like The Panther because there wasn't enough action, but I thoroughly enjoyed the witty dialogue, and the educational information on Yemen. I am looking forward to Nelson DeMille's next book.

I gave up mid-way & read the last chapter. Can honestly say I don't think I missed a thing. DeMille's books were good when he first started being published but are now, so it seems to me, paid by the word. They just go on and on and don't say a thing. I don't think I'll bother with any more of his novels.
