In this eagerly awaited follow up to The Lion's Game, John Corey, former NYPD homicide detective and special agent for the Anti-Terrorist Task Force is back. Unfortunately for Corey, so is Asad Khalil, the notorious Libyan terrorist otherwise known as the Lion. Last we heard from him, Khali had claimed to be defecting to the United States only to unleash the most horrific reign of terrorism ever to occur on American soil. While Corey and his partner, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, chased him across the country, Khalil methodically eliminated his victims one by one and then disappeared without a trace.

Now, years later, Khalil has returned to America to make good on his threats and take care of unfinished business. The Lion is a killing machine, and once again loose in America with a mission of revenge. John Corey will stop at nothing to achieve his own goal-to find and kill Khahil.

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.
