Asad Khalil - aka 'The Lion' - is the most dangerous man alive. A ruthless Libyan terrorist with an agenda of death and destruction, he has come to the US to seek out his number one enemy, ex-NYPD homicide detective John Corey. But Corey is equally intelligent, equally ruthless - and equally determined to wipe Khalil off the face of the earth....From the first page to the last line, this is a breakneck-paced race against time between two utterly driven men, between good and breathtaking evil. Acclaimed as the finest of Nelson DeMille's John Corey thrillers, it is the perfect introduction or re-introduction to one of the most compelling heroes in fiction.

Nelson DeMille is one of America's most popular and bestselling authors, and a new book from him is a keenly awaited event. A former US Army lieutenant who served in Vietnam, he is the author of nine acclaimed novels. He lives in Long Island, New York.From AudioFile:
Scott Brick's tongue-in-cheek narration of the principal character's reluctant skydiving adventure first 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. Once again, Asad Khalil, the perfect killing machine from THE LION'S GAME, is on Corey's trail. Khalil is back to avenge the killing of his Libyan family by an American air strike years ago. He got away in the last adventure, but now he's unstoppable--almost. As the body count mounts, Corey is determined to kill or be killed. Brick's accents are highly credible, and his ironic inflections most entertaining. Don't miss one of DeMille's best thrillers. A.L.H.
