Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by John Poen | 2/20/2014

    " This is quite different than the 1st book in the series, "Plum Island." I really liked the way the author makes the 'bad guy' really a BAD GUY, in this novel. Read this one before reading "The Lion." "

    " John Cory is no longer with the NYPD but works for the Anti-Terrorist Task Force in Washington. A flight carrying a Libyan defector lands in New York but everyone on board is dead. Asad Khalil has a list of people to kill and a host of compatriots stateside to lend him a helping hand. As the body count increases, John and FBI agent Kate Mayfield try to figure out Khalil's end game before he finishes his mission and escapes out of the country. Cory, as usual, is hilariously smart-mouthed and somehow, amid all the ruckus, finds time to get romantically involved with Kate. Although a little long (close to 700 pages) it is still another entertaining chapter in the Cory series. "

    " 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. "
