Publisher's Summary

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.

    "A Thriller"

    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.

    "John Corey character is entertaining as usual"
    What did you love best about The Panther?


    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.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Scott Brick as usual does a fantastic performance!


    Any additional comments?

    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!

    "Top notch story and character placement"

    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.

    "Good idea, just needed a little better ending"
    Where does The Panther rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    First one


    What did you like best about this story?

    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


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    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.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No to long, maybe if I had more time did it in 3 days

    "LIONS AND PANTHERS ... OH MY"

    Well, if you haven't already gotten your fill of John Corey, you might as well jump in for this one. Especially if you like the idea of being dragged across the god-forsaken Yemeni countryside. It was a hard trek for me, John and Kate, and his nemesis the CIA ... Yes they're all in his mind and then ... oh well, sit back and enjoy great gobs of Yemeni history as the team pursues "The Panther."

    "Finally John Corey is back"

    I am afraid Mr. DeMille is bored and finished with John Corey, this book is not up to the standard of the other series books and I waited so long for it. Scott Brick brings Corey to life as usual, I can't imagine anyone else reading these books. There was not as much wisecracking and very few jokes, which I missed. A good book because I really like the characters and the narration, but not a great book as usual.

    Story
    "Not DeMille's best work"
    Would you try another book from Nelson DeMille and/or Scott Brick?

    Absolutely. DeMille is normally a master storyteller. I eagerly snap up all his books, but this one seemed simplistic, overly convoluted, and, in the end, disappointing.


    Has The Panther turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Absolutely Not.


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

    John Cory is still my favorite. Smart and funny, but serious when necessary. Brick can be a master storyteller!


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Panther?

    It's not what I would have cut from "The Panther," but more what I would have added. More character development of the main antagonist, The Panther, would definitely have fleshed out the book better. "The Lion's Game" did a much better job of developing the Lion, and most of the other DeMille books do a good job of drawing me into the lives of the characters - good and malevolent.
