Nelson DeMille ↠ 8 Read Summary Ç eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Nelson DeMille Read The Lion's Game Age a holy war against the murderers of his family As Khalil's history intentions and specific agenda gradually become clear Corey leads a diverse group of experts in an increasingly desperate attempt to anticipate the Lion's movements and prevent him from implementing his bloody ironic endgame As the lengthy narrative unrolls The Lion's Game moves backward in time from the present day to the night of the fateful bombing in 1986; the action shifts from New York City to Florida and from Florida to the Pacific Coast as DeMille skillfully switches back and forth from the first person viewpoint of John Corey to a third person narrative that takes us into the deranged perspective of Asad Khalil The result is a big wide ranging novel that is alternately funny and frightening; one that achieves an astonishing almost effortless narrative momentum; one that is grounded in DeMille's tragic view of the endlessly replicated blood feuds that dominate the landscape of 20th century geopolitics From its eerie opening seuence to its deliberately open ended conclusion THE LION'S GAME is the clear product of a world class storyteller a man who seems incapable of turning out a bland or boring paragraph DeMille is at the top of his own game in this one and has written a novel that will inevitably command a large enthusiastic audience I for one am glad to see it In a field too often populated by formulaic by the numbers fiction Nelson DeMille is an undisguised blessing I wish him health success and undiminished productivity in the decades to come Bill Sheehan reviews horror suspense and science fiction for Cemetery Dance The New York Review of Science Fiction and other publicatio. A guy s book I really enjoyed this book about trying to figure out why a Libyan terrorist was in the US A large page count but kept me interested and Corey s wiseass commentary cracked me up Took away a star for the initial flying scenario He needed a better aviation consultant or else something didn t get explained correctly 4 Stars

Nelson DeMille ↠ 8 Read

Nelson DeMille ↠ 8 Read Summary Ç eBook, ePUB or Kindle PDF ↠ Nelson DeMille Read The Lion's Game The Barnes Noble Review January 2000 Since the publication of his first novel By the Rivers of Babylon in 1978 Nelson DeMille has produced a steady stream of intelligent hard edged contemporary thrillers the best of which — such as Cathedral The Gold Coast or Word of Honor — are absolute models of the form It's a pleasure to be able to report that The Lion's Game DeMille's tenth novel is as shrewdly constructed and compulsively readable as anything he has published to date Weighing in at nearly 700 pages The Lion's Game is the longest most ambitious novel of DeMille's career It is also his first attempt at a seuel bringing us a new installment in the colorful career of John Corey the acerbic narratorhero of 1997's Plum Island When last seen Corey had interrupted his convalescent leave from the NYPD long enough to solve a bizarre double murder on Long Island's Eastern Shore after which he formally separated from the police department and became an adjunct professor at John Jay University Not unexpectedly Corey grew bored with the uneventful world of academia and decided to return in a very different capacity to the front lines of law enforcement Admirers of Plum Island will be pleased to learn that he is as ornery insubordinate and politically incorrect as ever The novel opens on April 15th Corey has just signed on with the Middle Eastern division of the ATTF Anti Terrorist Task Force an organization staffed by an uneasy combination of FBI CIA and NYPD operatives Corey's firstassignmenttakes him to JFK Airport where together with an assortment of teammates he is scheduled to take custody of a defecting Libyan terrorist The terrorist in uestion is Asad Khali. Having recently finished reading I am Pilgrim the superb thriller by Terry Hayes I was looking around for something in the same style Well I already had this loaded on my Kindle and I m a long term fan of DeMille and his wisecracking hero John Corey Job doneA few chapters in I was already laughing at the constant stream of brilliant one liners but I was also convinced I was re reading the aforementioned Hayes tale I mean there were certainly differences but there were many similarities I stuck with it and I m really glad I did It s a weighty tome well obviously not uite so physically weighty on a Kindle at over 800 pages but its draw was so powerful I hardly noticed The story is brilliantly plotted and told in a way only DeMille can I won t summarise the plot but suffice to say it was not a re tell of the Hayes book but a clever and compelling narrative of its own If you liked Pilgrim I think you ll find plenty to enjoy here tooIf you re already a DeMille follower then you ll probably have read not only this book but also the follow up The Lion and the other Corey adventures too If not give him a try and don t be put off by the virtually uninterrupted insertion of humour there s plenty of depth too And if you like what you see I d suggest you seek out some of his other work with the Sutter and Brenner books being my personal favourites
