by Nelson DeMille - available in hardcover
John Corey is back along with his partner, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield. But so is Asad Kahlil, a Libyan terrorist aka The Lion. Kahlil is on a personal mission to destroy those who killed his family or anyone he has a personal vendetta against, including Corey and Mayfield.
Kahlil is also working with a larger group to commit a large-scale terrorist attack. John and Kate must stop him to save innocent lives as well as themselves.
I like DeMille, but this book was only okay. John Corey's wisecracking mental dialogue becomes very tiresome very quickly. The bodies kept piling up while Asad manages to elude capture way longer than would be realistic. This wasn't DeMille's best work.
