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.

The Lions Game and The Lion are awesome. I love that the author puts humor in it. Definitely recommend. A must see/hear.

There were many areas where this book goes beyond the believable. But Nelson DeMille is such a gifted writer that it was a pleasure to listen to anyway! The sarcastic, cynical asides of the lead character caused me to laugh so hard in my car at times that others were giving me strange looks.

The Lion is not a book that translates well to audio format in my opinion. The twists of this book are not believable at all, and if I were reading this book, I would have at least been able to skip over the more ridiculous parts! The bad guy, Asad Khalil, has nearly super-human abilities to to get caught doing the most unbelievable things. Only read this book if you have the ability to suspend disbelief beyond normal!
