Beschreibung

p>To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. The hero of DeMille's No. 1 New York Times best seller, Plum Island, Corey has been through a lot, not the least of which was surviving three bullet wounds while serving on the NYPD. Now he signs on with the government's Anti-Terrorist Task Force in an attempt to stop an alleged Libyan terrorist known simply as "The Lion".
The Lion has the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey. And now he's loose in America. Can John Corey stop him? Or has his allotment of luck just run out? Nelson DeMille spins an epic tale of heart-pounding suspense.

Beschreibung von Audible

Talk about fast-paced, this one's a nonstop thrill ride. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time. It's also funny, which makes a nice contrast to the suspense. DeMille develops the story extremely well, so your attention never strays. There's an awesome moment when two FBI agents are caught behind a boulder while a terrorist blasts away at them with a rifle. The action in that scene unfolds masterfully, but the entire audiobook finds the author in top form. (Ryan, Customer Service Representative)

Hilfreichste

Boring

This book is agonizingly boring. What's kind of intriguing in the beginning - the fine level of detail giving the book an air of reality - gets more and more annoying as the plot unfolds. After reading each tiny detail of the x-th flight of a private aircraft bringing the bad guy from A to B you almost wish he'd succeed in killing all those people rater sooner than later to relieve you from the burden of witnessing it all. In addition, the good guys do not make any progress for 3/4 of the book, which seems to be caused by an extremely low level of intelligence amongst them. Even the dumbest person in the world would have figured it all out after 10 minutes.
Very, very disappointing.
