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.

DeMille is able to create a world you have never been to before, introduce you to it and it's people and cause you to love it! Not This Time. This cat was too big. Cut a wee bit of it off in Part I. Take away lots of blubber.. opps... blather in Part II and now you are to the end of the tale. Every cat knows it must have a nice wave goodby. Here you barely get a bob. The Lion books were absolutely fantastic. I was hoping for another 'I cant wait to get back to hear if ______, but not this time and I was very dissappointed. In The Lion books John's smart mouth was most enjoyable and his barbs well placed. In The Panther I felt that was mainly all I got and nothing of the other characters. Scott, big fan of your work! Here, you did not have much to work with. Readers, dont give up on Mr. DeMille but do get the abridged verison of this one .PS: Normally. I would not say buy abridged!
I am a person that tries and get through 1 book a week if possible. I am Dyslexic so this is really the only way I can get through a book. I have listened to more book in a year than I read my first 20 years of my life. I found the joy of audio books in the early 2000 and have been a audible customer since 2000 or 2001. I have over 490 books in 2 different accounts and listened to 90%.
Yes, If you like the previous John books this is another great one.
John is always my favorite character.
Scott is one of the best readers int the business. I even do searches just for him to find new books to listen too.
When they were set up for death once again by the CIA and getting through it as a group.
The only problem I have with this book is how it was ended. I think Nelson could of spent another 2 or 3 chapters to close out the business with Tom and the CIA. I also would of liked to seen Buck getting punched in the face.
Sure. Both are talented.
Sure. I have a couple in the ipod waiting.
Scott is always at the top of his game. My favorite narrator.
NO. Slow moving. Excessive wisecracks. Waaaaaaaay to many "Right!" responses from Cory.
Please make Cory a more likable character. His number one response to every statement/thought/situation is "Right!". So sick of hearing that. Such a smart-a$$ he is intolerable.
Yes, I normally love all of his books.
I thought the book was very boring and drawn out.
I have read all of his books and looked forward to this one coming out. I was very disappointed in the story with very little action and not much to the story.
Creative and funny
Word of Honor
There were many
I found myself laughing out loud in public
I really enjoyed this book. I think it is the best 'John Corey' book so far. I would listen to it again definately.
I love the suspense of the story and or course John's wit.
I love to listen to Scott Brick's reading because it's like having a friend telling you a story. He's got John Corey down.
That's a tricky question. Perhaps something like 'Straight from the headlines we don't get to read."
Yes-sometime down the road as part of re-listening to the whole series.
I already have and have enjoyed most of what I've read. I've heard about a book or two of his I may read in the future, but I've already read most of his books that interest me (but then I don't normally read this type of book to start with.)
Scott Brick _is_ John Corey to me. The Book Case is the only book in the series I didn't listen to and when I read it I had Scott's voice in my head. I feel he gives John a fair amount of his character.
This book can stand on its own, but it wouldn't hurt to read Wild Fire before this or even the entire series. I see others complaining about how nothing happens for most of this book, but I like that for the variety in the series-it works for this story and it throws you off a bit. This was not my favorite John Corey book, but I still found it enjoyable. I didn't always see where Nelson DeMille was going with this book, but that might be partially due to Wild Fire being my least favorite book in the series.
This book is hours and hours of background information with hardly any action until the very end.
Grisham's new book.
The last 90 minutes of the book was great. The first 18 hours was often boring.
Disappointment because I have enjoyed the author's previous books.
If you must listen to this, buy the abridged version. You won't miss anything important.
Yes I would recommend this book because I love the character of John Corey-he is so funny and a smartalec and Scott Brick makes him seem so real-I have read all the books in the series and hope Nelson Demille writes more of them!
When John realizes that the CIA plan to kill him and Kate
There are so many I couldn't really say
John Corey books always make me laugh because of his sardonic sense of humor
Read all the books in the series-they are GREAT! Nelson Demille and Scott Brick are wonderful!
