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.

    " Being a big fan of Nelson DeMille, I have been listening to the books I have read. I am a particular fan of the John Corey series and this one continues to enforce the reasons why. The wit and one-liners coming from Corey in even the most dire circumstances keep a chuckle close at hand at all times. The only drawback to this book is the almost predictable actions of Corey as he flaunts and disregards standard police/FBI procedures and chain of command. But hey, where would we be without literary license?! That being said, the narrator of the DeMille books does an outstanding job of providing the proper voice inflections in the dialogue to drive home a point or punctuate a humorous line. I do wonder however, why in the books I have listened to that more than one reader is not used to provide the voices for other characters dialogue. In summation, while not his best, this book does not disappoint if you are a fan of Nelson DeMille and the John Corey series particularly. "

    " The latest in the John Corey series (Night Fall, Wild Fire, The Lion) and although I'm a fan of DeMille, his writing style and this character, I was slightly disappointed in this effort. In the previous novels, Corey is known for his smart-ass attitude, Type A personality and general anti-hero characteristics. In The Panther, DeMille almost pains himself to have Corey spitting some wise crack one liner every other sentence, and it frankly wore me down. Corey is a smart character, and he doesn't always need to play the class clown. Kate Mayfield, Corey's wife, who is one of the stronger characters in DeMille's books, was an after thought in this outing, and really didn't bring much to the party. The Panther bring Corey and Mayfield to Marib, Yemen as part of the ATTF and hunting to bring down the Al Qaeda chief in that sector of "Sandland". DeMillle does a nice job in describing the landscape in that part of the world, and the typical cat and mouse game ensues, with the climax of course being the ultimate run in with the Panther. 600 pages was a bit much for the non-stop one liners, and I just wish DeMille had taken a slightly different course with this novel. I enjoyed it, but not nearly as much as earlier installments - recommend if a fan of the series, but if your first John Corey novel, go with Night Fall, Wild Fire or The Lion's Game - much better! "
