An international murderer code-named “The Lion” has defected to the U.S. for diplomatic immunity and is flying into New York’s JFK Airport to be met by the American Terrorist Task Force (ATTF) team, including former NYC detective John Corey. But upon arrival, the ATTF finds that it is now The Lion’s Game that they are playing.
Ashad Khalil is a Libyan terrorist with a mission to avenge his family and his country and is now on a bloodthirsty mission. John Corey, with his beautiful new partner, Kate Mayfield, are desperate to find him before even more people are killed. But the question remains: Is he still in the U.S. or did he escape back to Libya?
Nelson DeMille first introduced John Corey in the novel Plum Island and in The Lion’s Game he still has issues following orders, still dislikes Ted Nash and is still one of the most sarcastic and funny characters in police work, but now he’s with a not so willing to laugh FBI unit fighting terrorism.
A truly engrossing story as only Nelson DeMille can deliver. If you read Plum Island, you’ll want to read this next book in the series. If not, start there. This is a series that everyone who likes spy rings, espionage and government conspiracy theories will love!
