Antiterrorist 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 deadly 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.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Robert Brase | 2/18/2014

    " It was actually almost painful to give a John Corey book written by Nelson DeMille only three stars. So why did I do that? I liked the book but cannot truthfully say I really liked it. I think this one was stretched just a bit to far. John and Kate are going kitty hunting again and in order to get The Panther they have to go to Yemen this time. In order to get this cat they are going to have to plan very carefully. And that is at least 1/3 of this book sitting around planning and plotting and setting a trap. At least another 1/3 of the book is John's smart ass acerbic wit and racist remarks. Now this is usually O.K. and fun but in this book it almost gets tiresome. So the action is found mainly at the beginning and the end of the book. Others in the series seem to be better balanced. I did like it and I think fans of the series will enjoy it. "

    " I've read or listened to several Nelson DeMille novels featuring Detective John Corey and have enjoyed them all, including this one. However... by disk 12 of 19 I was more than ready for it to end. 22 hours is just too long for one book! "

    " I could not even finish this book. A first for me as I am OCD about completing a task!!! However, I just could not stomach it. NDM needs to put away John Corey and the tired formula that surrounds him and then he needs to get back to writing books of substance like Word of Honor. "

    " Somewhat disappointing. Overly long and short on action. My least favorite John Corey and Nelson DeMille book. Interesting that Paul Brenner's wife-lady friend turned out to be Cynthis Sunhill. I was pulling for Susan Weber. "
