Publisher's Summary

In this eagerly awaited follow-up to The Lion's Game, John Corey, former NYPD Homicide detective and special agent for the Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is back. And, unfortunately for Corey, so is Asad Khalil, the notorious Libyan terrorist otherwise known as "The Lion". Last we heard from him, Khali had claimed to be defecting to the US only to unleash the most horrific reign of terrorism ever to occur on American soil. While Corey and his partner, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, chased him across the country, Khalil methodically eliminated his victims one by one and then disappeared without a trace.

Now, years later, Khalil has returned to America to make good on his threats and take care of unfinished business. "The Lion" is a killing machine once again loose in America with a mission of revenge, and John Corey will stop at nothing to achieve his own goal - to find and kill Khahil.

    "Great book with a perfect narator."

    I love it when they use the same narator from one book to another, it keeps character you already you have formed in your head alive.

    Although Scott Brick does a fantastic job as usual, he does start off a little monotone. However, he picks it up quickly.

    Loved the book, I hope there is another book in the John Corey series.

    "The Lion"

    DeMille & Brick do it again. The sky diving had me on the edge of my emotions.

    "LOVED it!!!"

    I was not disappointed, LOVED this book and Scott Brick brings it to life! A great sequel to The Lions Game! It also reminds you that we can never feel as safe & as separate from the rest of the world as we did pre 9/11.

    "exciting BUT, no more New York books for me"

    First, the book is pretty good! I LOVE Coreys wisecracks and would actually re-listen to get a laugh, his wife doesn't play a big enough role due to a situation. It has a few twists but not many and is fairly predictible and requires quite a suspension of disbelief. Lastly, as someone who has no use for manhattan, this is the last book I will listen to from Audible that is based in New York, the writer(s), Brick, story line is ALL New York this and New York that. I considered my time there for a job years ago as serving time in prison.

    "Better than the prequel."

    I listened to this book first and apparently the previous book was actually the first (lions game). This book is better than the first but has a few weak spots. However, overall it was an enjoyable listen.

    "Great story and narration"

    This is a great story by DeMille. John Corey continues to rock. The narration by Scott Brick is fantastic.

    "John Corey needs to live forever"

    I was so excited when I heard this book was coming out. It's a sequel to the novel "The Lion's Game", and yes, I think you need to read that one first. However, it won't be a chore. The main character, John Corey, is entertaining, funny, sarcastic, lovable and delightfully unpredictable. Added to this brilliant character is some fantastic storyline - a thriller in every sense.

    "The Lion" met every expectation, every hope I had about this sequel. The plot was satisfying in that it answered a lot of questions while still being suspenseful and packed with humor - a great combo, in my opinion.

    Scott Brick was genius as usual. I've said in other reviews that he IS John Corey - no one else could ever narrate these books but him. Even the author agrees, thankfully. So, no worries about bad narration detracting from the storyline.

    I have yet to find a single person who hasn't thoroughly enjoyed the John Corey novels. If you haven't tried it yet, I would ask what you're waiting for.

    "Loved it"

    I was waiting for this sequel to come out for sometime. Not only has DeMille continued the story of the Lion very well, he has left readers/listeners waiting for the next John Corey book. Scott Brick, as always, is top notch.
