    Milwaukee, 1995. In a city still reeling from the crimes of Jeffrey Dahmer, a woman’s body is found with the lungs removed. Local cops think a Dahmer copycat is on the loose. But Patrick Bowers, working as a homicide detective for the Milwaukee Police Department, sees from the timing and location of the crime that this is not a copycat at all. It's a killer with an entirely different agenda....

    After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Probobaly not. There are better suspense/espionage novels out there.


    If you’ve listened to books by Brad Thor before, how does this one compare?

    I haven't but its the character and his corny jokes I cant imagine some of the conversations that they have. Also I get that he is the best at his job but in this book its more overt in how he expresses his superiority rather than covert actions.


    Which character – as performed by Armand Schultz – was your favorite?

    All were performed pretty well.


    Did Path of the Assassin inspire you to do anything?

    Yes ... write this review. Having listened to many other espionage novels, something is missing. Something about the main character that rubs me the wrong way. Plus the story doesnt evolve like so many others that I have listened to.

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.

    Story
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Could have been shorter. Some of the details are excellent but then sometimes it is just way to many details. Mr. Demille needs to leave more to the readers imagination.


    Would you recommend The Panther to your friends? Why or why not?

    Yeah if you enjoy this series than of course, for those who don't have the time spare it and go with a Vince Flynn novel.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When they were tracking the panther in the Al Quada village.


    Could you see The Panther being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No to many details.

    Steven James' Christy Award-nominated crime thriller pits FBI Special Agent Bowers against a serial killer who enjoys torturing women. After visiting the mountain vistas where the murderer posed his dead victims, Bowers receives a taunting call from the "Illusionist." Although Bowers gets close, his insidious foe continues to elude him.

    What made the experience of listening to The Pawn the most enjoyable?

    This was a very pleasant surprise as I had never heard of this series. But it has all of the qualities that I enjoy in a detective/suspense/mystery. If you are one who enjoys the Harry Bosch or Alex Cross series...you will enjoy these.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Pawn?

    When they finally revealed the killer. Main characters role is not overboard in his thought process.


    Which character – as performed by Richard Ferrone – was your favorite?

    Ferrone is one of the best and does all roles justice.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed... the main character and his daughter have a dry sarcastic whit.

    There was one factor that the terrorists didn’t take into account when they struck the Capitana oil platform off the coast of Colombia - slaughtering much of the crew and blowing up the platform - and that was the Capitana crew chief, Dewey Andreas. Dewey, former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, rescuing as many of his men as possible. But the battle has just begun....

    Tommy says: "The best thing to happen since Mitch Rapp!"
    "Like an episode of 24!!"

    This book was awesome from start to finish. It was fast paced and had a great plot with strong underlying stories. I hope Coes writes a sequal.
