The Lion's Game review

The Lion's Game - Nelson DeMille

This book starts where the mediocre Plum Island left off and gives John Corey a wonderful villain in Asad Khalil, super-confident and competent Libyan terrorist, who leads the FBI, CIA and Corey in a chase across America on a mission of revenge. Lots of suspenseful fun, mostly from Corey's deadpan, wisecracking narration which DeMille does just right. There are two sequels, the last of which(The Lion) I have read and can also recommend.
