John Corey, a tough, wisecracking NYPD detective-turned-contract federal-agent for the New York Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is back on the hunt in Nelson DeMille's new thriller, "The Panther."
Nelson DeMille has not lost a step. It's been a decade since he published "The Lion's Game" (2000) in which his prize creation, retired NYPD Detective John Corey, tangled with the notorious killer Asad Khalil. The KGB-trained Libyan national, known as "the Lion," had arrived in the United States to avenge the death of his family during the American bombing of Tripoli in 1986.
