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.

    Story
    "Scott Brick Is John Corey"
    If you could sum up The Panther in three words, what would they be?

    Good Nelson DeMille


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    John Corey is my favorite character. He is such a smart-aleck.


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

    Scott Brick IS John Corey. He brings all of the sarcasm and tongue-in-cheek humor of John Corey to life. His accents and vocalizations of all of the other characters are outstanding.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book did not make me laugh or cry. It was very suspenseful and engaging. My strongest reaction was to John Corey's attitudes towards the Middle Eastern characters. I'm assuming that John Corey is Nelson DeMille's voice and I got a little bit tired of his somewhat racist comments about all of the Middle Eastern characters--whether they were good guys or bad guys. In this aspect, poor John Corey has moved from an intriguing, interesting character towards more of a one-dimensional, obsessive character and he is not as much fun as he used to be.

    "Enjoy Nelson DeMille always. John Cory crazy"

    Love the story intense and witty at the same time. John is a love to hate crazy.
    Sad but true as the story line is in keeping with our past and current Islamic terrorist faction situation.
    Never ending strife. Hope for peace.

    Story
    "Not one of Demille's better books"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    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.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nelson DeMille again?

    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.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    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.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Probably would not but then I'm not a big movie goer.

    Story
    "Nelson DeMille does it again"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely. The Panther has the same plot thread as DeMilles'other John Cory stories but the sarcasim is all new.


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

    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.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Outstanding!!!!! Scott Brick captures the characters perfectly and paints a picture in your mind.


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

    Probaably when Cory el al decide there has been enough killing. An unusual soft side of Cory.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it!!!! Enjoy!!!

    "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.
