DeMille is back!
DeMille's last book, THE LION, was a disappointment to many, simply because you kind of knew John Corey had to get The Lion. I mean, he had to.In this novel, Corey meets a new foe...well, several actually. Some of them are supposed to be his allies, so it's fun to see how John and sexy wife, Kate, navigate all the treachery. There were at least two twists that made me sit up and go, "Whoa, I didn't see that coming."
How could it possibly be anyone other than John Corey? Scott Brick inhabits the character. In fact, I suspect John Corey is actually Scott Brick. Or is Scott Brick actually John...I'd better stop this crazy thinking right now!
I'm not generally a reader of this type of book (love literature, both modern and classic). But my husband got me hooked on DeMille, and on John Corey and Kate Mayfield in particular. If you know John, you know you're going to laugh. And Kate will be there with the even-better comeback.Actually some familiar old faces that you wouldn't expect to see show up in THE PANTHER, bringing with them competition for John Corey's funny-man schtick. Chuckles abound!
This has many plot twists and a few surprises that will make you, "Oh, cool!" Our 23-year-old son is listening right now, and he called me long distance, laughing about the re-appearance of a character (no, it's NOT Ted Nash!). I was laughing with him, saying, "I know! Isn't that great? And did you totally not see that coming?"
THE PANTHER is a fine addition to the John Corey-Kate Mayfield series.
