I rarely rate a book this high. 5-stars is usually reserved for "The Green Mile" or "Beach Music." But 4-stars is not enough for this one. "Night Fall" was my first John Corey novel and it was just shy of 4-stars. But "The Lion's Game" soars much higher. It's still the same Corey with the same attitude, but with much more action. We also get a peek into the mind of a killer with no regard for anyone but himself and how he justifies all of his actions based upon his distorted views of God as one who demands the murder of all Americans. Scott Brick is far and away the best reader since we lost Frank Muller and he gives the attitude to Corey that makes these novels so entertaining. I would have preferred less profanity. Although it appears that I am going backward in the John Corey series, I am stymied; Plum Island was the first, I think, and it is no longer in production. I hope Audible will change that with another great unabridged John Corey story. If you liked "Night Fall" you will love "The Lion's Game."
