    The coauthor of Beowulf’s Children strikes out on his own with this novel of mystic revelation and martial arts. What if the disciplines we know as the martial arts, meditation, and fasting were mere fragments of a greater, more powerful killing art? What if that hidden discipline could produce in a man the power to manipulate matter and energy at will? What if the effect on the mind were so deadly that, uncontrolled, the result would be an inhuman killer?

    Too slow. The idea is great but the plot does not move as quickly as it should. I got bored.

    A century from now, thanks to a technology allowing instantaneous travel across light-years, humanity has solved its energy shortages, cleaned up the environment, and created far-flung colony worlds. The keys to this empire belong to the powerful North family - composed of successive generations of clones. Yet these clones are not identical. For one thing, genetic errors have crept in with each generation. For another, the original three clone "brothers" have gone their separate ways, and the branches of the family are now friendly rivals more than allies. Or maybe not so friendly....

    Story

    I loved Peter Hamilton's Common Wealth Universe. It is simply audacious and I always keep wanting more.

    This book is not set in the same universe. There are some similarities, but not on such a grand scale as the previous trilogy. This is mostly a suspense mystery novel set in future. Many of the characters are believable and one can relate to them.

    I am waiting for Peter's next book which is supposed to be set in the Common Wealth Universe

    An airliner’s controls abruptly fail mid-flight over the Atlantic. An oil tanker runs aground in Japan when its navigational system suddenly stops dead. Hospitals everywhere have to abandon their computer databases when patients die after being administered incorrect dosages of their medicine. In the Midwest, a nuclear power plant nearly becomes the next Chernobyl when its cooling systems malfunction. At first, these random computer failures seem like unrelated events.

    Really really nice story line and fast pace. One of the best sci-fi books I have listened to so far.

    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.

    John says: "Exciting Nelson DeMille novel with great narration"

    Where does The Panther rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Nice to listen while traveling alone. Not as captivating as some of the other books


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There is a single plot. Find the bad guy and kill him. The author does a good job of developing the characters and describing the surroundings of every scene so that you feel you are there. But after a while it gets boring and the pace seems to slow down and drag for a long time.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    The main character of retired NYPD detective is nicely done
