Description (from the publisher):
In this eagerly awaited follow-up to The Lion's Game, John Corey, former NYPD Homicide detective and special agent for the Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is back. And, unfortunately for Corey, so is Asad Khalil, the notorious Libyan terrorist otherwise known as "The Lion." Last we heard from him, Khali had claimed to be defecting to the US only to unleash the most horrific reign of terrorism ever to occur on American soil. While Corey and his partner, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, chased him across the country, Khalil methodically eliminated his victims one by one and then disappeared without a trace.

Now, years later, Khalil has returned to America to make good on his threats and take care of unfinished

business. "The Lion" is a killing machine once again loose in America with a mission of revenge, and John Corey will stop at nothing to achieve his own goal — to find and kill Khalil.

One of the best protagonists, in my opinion, DeMille has created a real-to-life character in Corey. Would love to find out what he's up to next in this next novel.

DeMille's books always have a a good suspenseful plot and well drawn characters. When I worked at the library, I always made sure we had his latest books on the shelf. He is popular and rightfully so.
Since my husband doesn't have much time to read, but plenty of commute time, audio books are our best option. It will be nice to be able to discuss this book with him.

Pick me! Pick me! Sorry, got a little bit overexcited. I'm okay now.

I've never read a DeMille novel before but have been hearing really good things about The Lion. Plus my sign is Leo, so I'm partial to Lions. Anyway, thanks for the giveaway. mkip at aol dot com.

Oh, and I have long been a follower.
