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)

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. ( )

Bad guys take root in Yemen and it's up to John Corey and company to flush them out and protect American interests. While serving as bait for the big bad, of course. I was pleasantly surprised to see that Paul Brenner, another familiar name to DeMille fans, plays a significant role in this one, along with the Coreys. And I'd already heard the complaints about excessive snark (even for Corey) in this one, and I can't say that I entirely disagree. I'm a fan of the old "less is more" adage, and DeMille might want to give it some thought in the future. Either that or be more willing to defer to a decent editor. In the end, this one is a solid addition to the Corey arc and it was nice to revisit some old friends here. There were more than a few points in the story when I would have preferred to have a character ask a given set of questions in a group setting instead of keeping those questions to himself or herself, but that seems to be a DeMille narrative device that you simply have to accept. Or not. The only real negative here was the ridiculously rushed epilogue, especially after chapters and chapters filled with superfluous, cutesy stuff. It's as if the FedEx guy had rung DeMille's doorbell for the final draft, only to be stalled while DeMille penned a few closing lines in a half-hearted effort to wrap things up. (DeMille writes out his stories longhand, so this scenario might not be as far-fetched as one might imagine in this digital age.) ( )

Anyone who is a fan of DeMille's John Corey series will want to read this book, but I have to say, I was disappointed. I'm still glad I read it -- but I was let down. While Corey's acerbic wit and politically incorrect humor are ever-present, 85% of the book is dialogue in and out of Corey's head, with very little action. The ins and outs of a double-crossing, convoluted mission in Yemen require some explanation, sure-- but not at the expense of what could have been an action story like many of DeMille's others.

It was a long wait for "The Panther," and I hope DeMille's next book will be here quickly and bring back some more action along with this great character. ( )
