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. As latecomers to a deadly game, John and Kate don't know the rules, the players, or the score. What they do know is that there is more to their assignment than meets the eye - and that the hunters are about to become the hunted.Filled with breathtaking plot turns and told in John Corey's inimitable voice, The Panther (the sixth book in the series) is a brilliant depiction of one of the most treacherous countries in the world and raises disturbing questions about whether we can ever know who our enemies - or our allies - really are.

Listening to a book is always time well spent, this one just wan't as well spent as some of the other John Corey books from DeMille.
Although it wasn't one of the better DeMille books I've listened to, it was still a lot more entertaining than many other authors and I will continue to listen to DeMille's future titles.
Scott Brick is simply one of the best. His accents are great, he manages to convey the emotions of the characters but it is the way he masters the rhythm of the different voices that separates him from other good performers.
Probably would not but then I'm not a big movie goer.
Absolutely. The Panther has the same plot thread as DeMilles'other John Cory stories but the sarcasim is all new.
The plot isn't the best part of the book. It is being in the head of John Cory and participating in his sarcastic view of the situation. Although, the plot is well thought out and detailed.
Outstanding!!!!! Scott Brick captures the characters perfectly and paints a picture in your mind.
Probaably when Cory el al decide there has been enough killing. An unusual soft side of Cory.
Read it!!!! Enjoy!!!
Scott Brick narrative brings this story to life.
Scott Brick is one of the best readers in the business.
This thriller was a very interesting listen. While it was a bit unrealistic in many areas thus requiring the listener to suspend logic, it did hold my interest from beginning to end.
intrigue exciting funny
Yes always twists and turns that were unexpected
the whole book was awesome
worth every penny the mix of john kate and paul were perfect
Very long getting to the really exciting portion.
The most disappointing part was not enought action till the very end.
Yes, Most definitely.
John and Kate were great but the entire story was a little boring.
Other reviews criticized the author saying too many one line wise cracks ( one after the other) I would agree that there are more than usual but the plot was full of surprises and had some twists the made the book fun to listen to.
Scott Brick as usual does a fantastic performance!
The ending leaves you with a few unanswered questions - but I guess that sets things up for another sequel. Overall I would recommend this book to all John Corey fans!
Fiction reader/listener: law enforcement, spy, military, science thriller, disasters.
The story was very well written and the characters could not have been better. The re-introduction of the military policeman from the General's Daughter added to the interest. Brick never wavers in his narration.
Plot was good but something was different about how it ended the final scenes, almost to easy, to controlled, I've read almost everything Mr. DeMille has written, and up to the final scenes it was good. Lion was better sorry Mr. Demille
It was nice to hear as opposed to reading it, as this was my first I have nothing to compare it to. But I did enjoy it.
No to long, maybe if I had more time did it in 3 days
