A different book. There is no way to save this turkey.
Absolutely, he is one of my favorite authors. I am hoping this book was just a fluke.
Serious disappointment. I have read all of his other books and loved them. It is hard to believe that DeMille actually wrote this.
If you fall asleep at night listening to this book and miss 8 hours of it, don't worry. You probably didn't miss anything. Seriously, nothing happens for hours at a time. This could have been a 30 minute book.
John Corey! I love anything that Scott Brick does.
I was just glad to see one more of the John Corey series. I hope there will be more.
I hope Nelson comes out with more books, soon.
The Panther was a good second to DeMille's The Lion's Game. The most enjoyable aspect was the character of John Cory who never disappoints. I just love this guy when he's sarcastic. He had a lot more humor going for him in this novel. It took the edge off the suspense, but then I welcomed the change of mood. I've read about twelve of DeMille's novels and would rank them all pretty high on the list; so I'm a big fan.
Moreover, if Scott Brick is narrating, you can bet every minute of listen will be worthwhile.
I haven't read the print edition, so I can't comment.
The Lion....same characters, different enemy
hard to pick just one. Corey's humor is always enjoyable, especially when he interacts with Kate in his "I told you so" mode.
no, but it was a good listen.
I always enjoy these characters.
I've never skipped through a Nelson DeMille novel before. He is one of my favorites.
There way to many setup scenes that play out sloooowly. The prose of the first 7/8 of the book is like the collaborative effort of le Carre' and Tolstoy. I'm used to John Corey running down hill with his hair on fire. This novel plays out in Yemen - one of the most dangerous places on earth - and there is less action and suspense than any single chapter of the Lion books.
The novel is almost devoid of suspense till the last few chapters. And the final scene/epilogue: well.... let's just say teleportation must have been employed. Very disappointing.
It won't stop me from buying his next book. I hope I don't feel like a sucker.
Another great story.
John Corey. Scott Brick brings out his personality.
Scott Brick is John Corey. It wouldn't be as good to read the book.
Nelson DeMille has become one of my favorite authors and Scott Brick my all time favorite narrator.
Middle of the pack.
Somewhat disappointing. Story takes a long time to get going, but picks up in the second half. Interesting that Paul Brenner showed up in this book since the story reminded me much more of Up Country than previous John Corey novels.
Yes. Good performance, and good effort breathing some life into fairly dry material early in the book.
Love this book. One of the best I have listened to this year
Demille throws in so many funny one liners from Corey, I couldn't keep track. The action builds throughout and the end is great
No one else could ever be John Corey
great story. Laughed out loud many times
if you like life, and love your country, you must read all of the Corey books
The Panther was an OK book, parts of the book are hysterically funny, even though the book itself seemed to be a little too long. This book, and its predecessor "the Lion", both seem to have a strange timeline. DeMille seemed to lose track of time in parts of the book, making it confusing. Supposedly this takes place a couple of years after the Cole was attacked, which would seem to have this taking place sometime in 2002 or 2003. Another thing that makes this one a little confusing is that he is attributing the Cole to a fictitious villain when actual people have been identified and charged. I almost wonder if DeMille wrote this book and the Lion shortly after 9-11 and released them nearly a decade or more later. If you enjoy other Jon Cory novels you will probably like this one too.
