To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all.

The hero of DeMille's No. 1 New York Times best seller, Plum Island, Corey has been through a lot, not the least of which was surviving three bullet wounds while serving on the NYPD. Now he signs on with the government's Anti-Terrorist Task Force in an attempt to stop an alleged Libyan terrorist known simply as The Lion. The Lion has the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey. And now he's loose in America. Can John Corey stop him? Or has his allotment of luck just run out? Nelson DeMille spins an epic tale of heart-pounding suspense. Download and start listening now!

    " I read this one ages - it's the first John Corey book about The Lion (a 'Radical' Muslim intent on exacting revenge on particular Americans). An excellent book - and one that sets the stage nicely for the latest DeMille thriller, The Lion. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dick Gullickson | 2/3/2014

    " Nelson DeMille spins a good thriller while actually doing a little character development. His mysteries are well above average -- have especially enjoyed "Plum Island," "The Charm School," The Gold Coast," and "The General's Daughter," This one is up to the standards of the others. A former NYPD detective, now assigned to a counterterrorism task force, pursues a Libyan terrorist. Hard to put down, which is a lot to say for a 900 page book. Give it a read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Judy-Sug | 2/1/2014

    " A Nelson DeMille thriller that I decided to read before reading his latest: The Lion. This was very weird reading about a terrorist that came out of Libya as a result of a bombing that killed his family during the Reagan era. John Corey is the cop turned anti-terrorist working for the feds and Mayfield is the love interest. Reading this book as I watched CNN while on vacation and learning of the Libyan bombing was creepy. DeMille is always a good, fast read. "

    " My first book by Nelson DeMille. This is the 5th book in the John Corey series and I'll be reading the others soon. Great reading. I love that John Corey is a wise guy. I always love books done in first person as well. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jered Skousen | 12/25/2013

    " Written in 2000 with a plot about terrorist. Interesting to remember the world before 9/11. Some of what he said really came true, some not so much. But a OK read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hans Tullmann | 9/15/2013

    " I enjoyed this book. It was interesting to see the story unfold between John Corey and the antagonist. Definitely a step up from Plun Island "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stuart Brackney | 8/23/2013

    " I liked this book, kept me busy, I read the Lion prior to this, so althought out of order, it was fun reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elaine | 2/3/2013

    " Bombing of Tripoli Libya in 1986 in defence of a killing in Berlin. Retlaiation by Libians with the Pan Am Lockerbie plane bomb. Gadafi's adopted daughter killed in the bombing. Sons wounded. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jon Douglas | 1/31/2013

    " This was simply awesome. My First read of Demille- surely not my last. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Russell | 9/28/2012

    " An interesting story but is basically a not-as-well-written Tom Clancy book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Renee | 4/24/2012

    " Started out good but was too long. Wished he could've skipped some meetings.. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nat | 3/27/2012

    " This was the best mystery ever. The plot was thick, well written and engaging. A must read if you like FBI mysteries. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sherlockb | 3/3/2012

    " I listen to audio books while walking on the treadmill. This is one of those books that kept me walking long past the time I would normally stop. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Ryan Burt | 2/26/2012

    " It was ok. The story line had some strong parts and a semi good twist at the end. But the story didnt really move along. Plus the ending was a little odd. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barbara | 2/22/2012

    " The book was so good, I could not put it down. I have read all but the last book in this series out of order. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Audrey | 12/21/2011

    " Eerie as I read this book post-911 yet it was written and published so quickly afterward. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kevin Crow | 12/9/2011

    " One of the two most engaging openings I've ever read. A trans-Atlantic flight lands on auto-pilot because everyone on board is dead. How can you not want to continue reading a book that starts like that? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 June | 9/1/2011

    " This book had me hooked that I couldn't put it down! Talk about a great cat & mouse game played through out the book. If you like suspense/detective based novels, this is the ONE for you. Definitely one of my favs of Mr. Deville. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bogie | 6/24/2011

    " I love DeMille's protagonist, John Corey. He's witty, biased, not politically correct, and, most of all, a good detective. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Liane | 5/15/2011

    " Even better than Plum Island. DeMille is mixes wit with a solid plot complete with interesting twists and viable, likable characters. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Bob | 4/1/2011

    " One of the better adventure novels featuring John Corey, and the assassin known as "The Lion." In light of current events in Libya, the story is timely. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kristy | 4/1/2011

    " I'm a huge Nelson Demille fan - I love his humor & his characters, along with his disdain for various secret service agencies! "
