Review: The Panther
John Corey is not the only thing that draws me to the works of Nelson DeMille, but he's the biggest thing. Few characters in contemporary fiction are as engaging as the cocky, witty ex-NYPD detective. So I didn't need much motivation to pick up DeMille's latest novel and catch up with the unorthodox but highly effective lawman. In The Panther, DeMille sends Corey and FBI wife Kate Mayfield to Yemen as part of a task force to bring justice to the mastermind of the attack on the USS Cole. The result is a roller-coaster ride of a story that keeps you on edge almost to the last page. Readers who love smart thrillers filled with intrigue and humor won't be disappointed. Rating: 4/5.
