DeMille writes a riveting story that keeps you on the edge of your seat, every minute! I thought this was the so well written.
Although violent and graphic...for those of you who were offended.
REMEMBER..Mr. DeMille was in Viet Nam...his researchers and advisors are top notch people, that are aware of what the terrorists of the AlQuaida and Teleban do to their prisoners.
They don't sit over milk and cookies and try to cajole information!......
I thought this was an excellent read as well as a reminder of what our enemies are capable of and have done. It should be a wake up call to all who read.

Great story! Great read by Scott Brick as usual. Great charachter-John Corey! Well worth the credit! Enjoy!
I cannot handle Scott Brick's narration - I had to stop listening to the audiobook - even though I am a huge fan of DeMille.
I can't believe sell the negative reviews and comments I see about this book. I read it immediately after reading "The Passage". They are two totally and completely different types of books. This is (in comparison) light hearted, fast moving, exiting and even fun. I like the way he ties the characters together along with Corey,s dry sense of humor. I didn't care that I thought I knew what was coming up next, it made it exciting. If you like DeMille and mysteries, you'll like this one. I highly recommend it.
Having enjoyed The Lion's Game, I very much looked forward to hearing this book, and I was not disappointed. Although we knew John Cory was going to win in the end, I was not able to preduct the twists and turns. At times the narrative was so intense it made me want to stop listening and come back later. Overall it was everything I hoped for.
DeMille gets it just right. Fast action, laughter, edge of your seat suspense, great story line, and not PC (politically Correct) which is one of the reasons Corey is awesome. In this book John's humor seems to be rubbing off on Kate too, another delight. Finally, don't let me forget Scott Brick who is the perfect John Corey. Thanks for the great time.
I loved this book. It was definitely a "can't put down" for me. I cannot believe DeMille can't find a more polished narrator. Scott Brick's voice on the main character was irritating and sounded very much like the guy doing the GEICO commercials that ask's, "Is Ed Too Tall Jones too tall?" Every single FBI agent and police officer in the book was read with a whisper. Mr. Brick, I don't think NYC police speak with a whisper. The strongest and most masculine voice was the female lead. I love DeMille books but would avoid anything read by Brick.
While perhaps not quite as exciting as The Lion's Game, I still found the story engaging and enjoyable. I'd easily recommend it.
As usual, the first-class narration of Scott Brick really brings the story to life. I cannot imagine another narrator doing John Corey.
Not one of DeMille's best. The plot left nothing to the imagination, and seemed poorly put together. In addition, Scott Brick's overwrought narration of the novel detracted a great deal from the story. A laconic, vaguely whiny drawl for all of the characters - save John Corey - appears to have become Brick's trademark. The same tone is used no matter what the situation.
The King of Wit does it again! Great book! DeMille does John Corey so well. Just wish it was a longer book so I could enjoy it longer!
