The Panther by Nelson Demille

Lovereading view...

This is quite a dense tale, 625 pages, with only the last 100 or so having lots of action and excitement. The earlier ones show the chaos in the Yemen and the infighting between the various security forces, tribes and political groups, all full of corruption. It is fascinating but if you are expecting escapist adventure then this is not for you.

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

The Panther by Nelson Demille

It's one of the most dangerous and volatile countries in the world: Yemen. A Middle Eastern hotbed of corruption and insurgency and the perfect training ground for Islamic terrorists. When FBI agents John Corey and Kate Mayfield are assigned to overseas posts in Sana'a, Yemen's capital city, they are tasked with hunting down the high-ranking Al Qaeda operative responsible for the USS Cole bombing. This man, known as The Panther, is wanted for terrorist acts and multiple murders and the US government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost. As latecomers to a deadly 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.


'Big, compelling and furiously paced, it screams to a terrific climax.' Daily Mail on THE PANTHER

'DeMille's strengths are legend. His characters are rounded and appealing... His writing is fluid and accessible and his plots are tremendous.' Sun

'Corey: a wise-ass with a splendid line in sarcasm, even in the most violent of circumstances.' The Times

'Written with a neat wry humour, it's full-on and fast-paced.' Daily Mail
