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.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Authors just don’t get any better than Nelson DeMille.”

    Denver Post

  • “Scott Brick’s tongue-in-cheek narration of the principal character’s reluctant skydiving adventure...makes one smile, then break into laughter. Soon enough, though, protagonist John Corey’s attempt to save his wife’s life as a terrorist tries to murder her on the way down crackles with tension. The juxtaposition of the two moods as delivered by Brick demonstrates the superb quality of his reading...Brick’s accents are highly credible, and his ironic inflections most entertaining. Don’t miss one of DeMille’s best thrillers.”
