    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    "Corny dialog...needlessly long...formulaic"

    Story

    The whole book seems to be Corey making wisecracks...way more than necessary...dumb too. In earlier books his wisecracks were great fun but in this one it seems like every time he says something it's a wisecrack and too often not funny. In other Corey books the interchange between John and Kay is fun but in this book we hear barely a peep from her. Final scene (I won't spoil it by telling) is way over the top...more than the Corey of previous books.

    Scott Brick is terrific as always.

    Jussi Adler-Olsen is Denmark's premier crime writer. His books routinely top the bestseller lists in northern Europe, and he's won just about every Nordic crime-writing award, including the prestigious Glass Key Award-also won by Henning Mankell, Stieg Larsson, and Jo Nesbo. Now, Dutton is thrilled to introduce him to America.

    Story

    The first book "The Absent One" was terrific. The narrator bought the book to life--working class, depressed cop, assistant from Syria and more. Great listen. The narrator in this one reads with an upperclass English accent. Even worse Carl's assistant, Assad from Syria sounds like he's from India. No kidding. I was dissapointed and annoyed that I didn't finish.

    If you buy it and hate it don't say I didn't tell you so.
