John Corey is a sarcastic smart-alex. Listening to the book it was sometimes hard to figure out when he was just thinking his comments and when he was saying them.

The Lion tries to kill Kate, Than Corey has to wait for the Lion to come after him. Meanwhile the Lion takes out the others on his hit list.

Kate wants them to go to Minnesota and visit her parents. Corey has a very bad attitude about that idea. ( )

If you enjoy the characters John Corey and Kate Mayfield... and of course, Asad Khalil, then READ THIS NOW... I just love Corey's sarcastic banter with his friends, bosses and his adversaries... GREAT BEACH READ- moves fast! ( )

Maybe the best Corey of them all. Lacks the strategic chess match feel of Lion's Game but has a more base and violent undertone running throughout, which is definitely realized at the end. Parts of the plot were entirely predictable and I think more treatment could have been given to one of the role characters at the end, but in all this is a solid read (listen in my case).

John Corey is one of those characters, like Harry Bosch, that I simply cannot get enough of. This has the feel, however, of a "close to the end of the line" story. I hope not. If DeMille can keep his (and Corey's) juices flowing this series has a long future. Let's hope he does.

As I said, I listen via Audible.com. Scott Brick is a master at interpretation and gets a five on this one only because six is not available. ( )

This is one of those stories where the evil guy spends years (three in this case) training and planning a terrorist/revenge attack while the "hero" spends the time drinking and being a wise ass.

The evil guy then executes the plan with superman like abilities: killing skilled adversaries and getting things done with out any roadblocks. The 'hero" continues to wisecrack and drink. The only ability the hero seems to have is an uncanny sixth sense that puts him in the right spot at the right time. This is very convenient if you are a thriller author.

In the end it comes down to a knife battle between the highly trained, superman-ish villian, and the wise cracking, beer drinking, thriller-author-helpful clairvoyant hero. Don't bother to read. The hero wins.

Nelson Demille, I am calling you out. I LOVED Cathedral, The Charm School, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Plum Island, Up Country, and Word of Honor. What is up with crap like The Lion, and the other clunkers, Spencerville, The Talbot Odyssey, Wild Fire, and The Gate House? ( )
