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 US government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost. As latecomers to a treacherous 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.… (mais)

DeMille's book The Panther, features ex-NYC policeman turned anti-terrorist task force agent John Corey, and his FBI wife Kate Mayfield, conned into being sent to Yemen as "bait" while tracking down a notorious terrorist nicknamed "The Panther". The book also features Paul Brenner, another Demille character from an earlier book, The General's Daughter, although the Paul Brenner in this book did not seem to have the same personality as the Paul Brenner from the earlier book.

In this book, the hunter becomes the hunted, all Yemeni characters are untrustworthy and evil, the bureaucratic FBI / CIA agents aren't much better, and predator drones and hellfire missiles fill the skies. And like the Bruce Willis character in the Die Hard movies, or the Spencer character in Lee Child's books, in which the detectives seem to need to be irreverent, disrespectful of authority, and smart-asses, John Corey is cast in that same mold. But I thought DeMille went way overboard in making John Corey such a smart-ass that he became obnoxious. Corey's constant smart-aleck thoughts and comments, to each and every event and person throughout the book, stopped being funny, and rather became a distraction. To me, he quickly became an unlikable character, and when you no longer like the main character in the book, the book itself becomes unlikable. The book is long enough at over 600 pages, and could have been shortened by one-third, and made a lot more enjoyable, by eliminating every-other unnecessary Corey thought and comment.

Ex-NYC cop John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, are sent to Yemen to smoke out the Panther, an American-born Yemeni and Al Qaeda leader responsible for the attack on the USS Cole. As in the previous five novels, John's running wise crack and running commentary are the backbone of this series so if you like them, you'll like the books. Not to give too much away, but the good guys kill the bad guys, despite some treachery. The editors could have done better -- it was at least 100 pages longer than necessary. ( )

Kind of predictable with the wisecracking John Corey and his wife Kate, and it took a LOT of filler/educational background about Yemen to set the stage, but it had a satisfying end. And, regrettably, in my opinion, sets up sequel possibilities. I tend to stay away from books that have the same characters in them as in previous books (the lazy way out for an author?) and really enjoyed the days when DeMille would develop a unique set of characters in each of his books.

Love the John Corey character!! Good, FAST read (even in the dark!) ( )

Good, but not as good as the previous installments. I love a good series of books. So often I get several books into the series and become disappointed with how it feels like the author has a fill-in-the-blank script for the books and just putting them out as quickly as possible in order to keep the money coming. I DO NOT feel this way about the John Corey series. However, it feels like DeMille might be getting a bit weary of his wise-ass, chauvinist protagonist and the formula of a mid-eastern terrorist having blood lust for John Corey that must end in a kill or be killed scenario.

Unlike many series where the books become incredibly predictable and tedious, “The Panther” was well researched and engaging. It held my attention, in a way no history/political book ever has, informing me about much that I was completely ignorant regarding the history, motivations, and perspective of Islamic warriors. Yet, it did not keep me reading late into the night like “Plum Island” and “The Lions Game.”

I will not hesitate to continue this series, but hope that John is able to change course and encounter a new crisis that causes him to use his wit, cunning, and unpredictable nature again. ( )
