Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen-one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders-and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost. As latecomers to a deadly game, John and Kate don't know the rules, the players, or the score. What they do know is that there is more to their assignment than meets the eye-and that the hunters are about to become the hunted.
Filled with breathtaking plot turns and told in John Corey's inimitable voice, THE PANTHER is a brilliant depiction of one of the most treacherous countries in the world and raises disturbing questions about whether we can ever know who our enemies - or our allies - really are.

My only complaint about Nelson DeMille is his books are to few & far between. Every one of his books has been a winner & The Panther does not disappoint. The only author who can make me laugh out loud. Now when will his next book come out
I love DeMile and the Corey series and looked forward with great anticipation to this next installment but am sad to say it is not much of a read. It almost seems like someone wanting to give you some insights into Mideast politics and then decides to see if they can make it more palatable by weaving some loose story around it. Even Corey who was so wry and comical in the other novels is here forced to make some wise crack about every eight paragraphs to keep you from trailing off completely. I am used to starting these books and finishing them within days, unable to lay them down. This one I had to force myself to finish. Hoping the next one returns to the glories of the days of old.
This is one of the tidiest books I have read in a long time.It was so drawn out .Don't bother with this book .A real disappointment after the last book
