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.

    "Nelson DeMille is still the best"
    Where does The Panther rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    One of the best


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

    Non stop entertainment with either John Corey in action or cracking wise. No better character.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick could read the phone book and it would be entertaining


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

    Of course

    "Good Listen"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Panther to be better than the print version?

    Because of the Eastern names used. The listen was very easy to follow.


    What other book might you compare The Panther to and why?

    Someone of the genre of Scott Horvath Dirk Pitt. Both are strong males and use humor in the face of adversity


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

    I enjoyed all of the characters.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Talking about the USS Cole

    "Good story, but annoying character"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes. The John Corey character, while entertaining, spent way too much time wise-cracking. It seemed that he has something snarky to say every paragraph. While some of this is fine, and in character, this time it was in my opinion over the line. It seriously detracted from my enjoyment of the book.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Predictable but enjoyable.


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

    The Panther


    Do you think The Panther needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    "More plot, less sarcasm"
    What did you love best about The Panther?

    The narration by Scott Brick is excellent, as usual, and the relevance to our current conflicts makes it an intriguing read.


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

    The plot seems a little slow at times but others may enjoy the historical details and background information more than those who have read all the previous DeMille novels.


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

    Scott Brick is the best narrator, hands down, and this job here is on par with the rest of his excellent work.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I was particularly disgusted by the truthful revelation that policy makers in the White House continue to put our country and service personnel at risk with inane rules and regulations. What happened to the USS Pueblo and the USS Cole happened again recently in Libya.

    I would and have recommended any of DeMile's to friends. The Panther is a great addition to that long list.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Scott Brick made John Corey. Brick's portrayal makes Corey come alive.

    Story
    "John Corey is Back"

    I'm always anxious for more of John Corey. While some comment that they get tired of the wisecracks, I'm just the opposite. I personally enjoy the jokes. And I might add, Scott Brick IS John Corey. I can't imagine anyone else in the role and Scott is just outstanding as always.

    You can read a synopsis of the story anywhere so let me just say that as with many of DeMille's books, there are fast and exciting moments, slower background moments and periods that kind of drag with filler. I think 1/3 of The Panther could have been edited out and you wouldn't have missed any of the story... but you would have missed the fun and wisecracks from Corey!. THAT is why I listen to this series. There are a lot of interesting characters in The Panther and again, Scott Brick brings them to life.

    Frankly, the plot is simple and the resolution expected but there's just something about the way DeMille told the story that kept me into it. Although predictable, I found the story fun and engrossing if for no other reasons than to hear Corey's opinions and to learn a little more about Yemen so that I don't feel the need to ever have to visit... and that's probably a good thing.

    If you haven't read the other John Corey stories in the series, you probably don't want to start here but if you're a DeMille/Corey fan, you don't want to miss this one. I got exactly what I expect from Mr. DeMille: Another great read!

    "A MUST...not READ!"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    If you are a fan of DeMille, and have enjoyed his lion books...this does not live up to the hype...it just doesn't meet the crediblity that others have..


    What could Nelson DeMille have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    i am a big fan of female heroins, but this inclusion of the woman just didn't make sense..why was she even a part of this story...in reality she would have been a real detriment. I found a lot of the dialogue/private thoughts of John very funny.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Brick?

    Absolutely


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    see above


    Any additional comments?

    no
