The Lion by Nelson Demille
  

Lovereading view...

One of our Great Reads you may have missed in 2011.

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

The sequel to The Lion’s Gate (2000) but you need not have read that first only you will appreciate this more if you have. So we have John Corey the goody threatened once again by the lion … with a high body count, close shaves, ingenious scenes and much else. This is a cracking good thriller with it all coming together in the last thirty pages (of 433).

If you like Nelson Demille you might also like to read books by Tom Cain, Michael Cordy and Dennis Lehane.

Synopsis

The Lion by Nelson Demille

Asad Khalil - aka 'The Lion' - is the most dangerous man alive. A ruthless Libyan terrorist with an agenda of death and destruction, he has come to the US to seek out his number one enemy, ex-NYPD homicide detective John Corey. But Corey is equally intelligent, equally ruthless - and equally determined to wipe Khalil off the face of the earth...From the first page to the last line, this is a breakneck-paced race against time between two utterly driven men, between good and breathtaking evil. Acclaimed as the finest of Nelson DeMille's John Corey thrillers, it is the perfect introduction or re-introduction to one of the most compelling heroes in fiction.
