Annotation:
New York City policeman-turned-FBI-agent John Corey returns after his adventures in PLUM ISLAND. This time the courageous cop must stop the vengeful terrorist Asad Khalil, whose family was killed in the U.S. bombing off Libya in 1986, from assassinating every American involved in the catastrophe. Alternating between intense third-person accounts of Khalil's lofty mission and Corey's own first-person narrative, this book gives readers an abundant dose of blood, action, and personal drama.
Author Bio
Nelson Demille
A native of Long Island, Nelson DeMille played football and ran track in high school. He attended Hofstra University for three years before joining the Army, serving in Vietnam as a Second Lieutenant and infantry platoon leader in the First Cavalry Division. After returning home from the war, he graduated from Hofstra, married, had two children, and after a divorce, married for a second time. DeMille is a member of the Authors Guild, the Mystery Writers of America, and American Mensa. While his first published novels were mysteries featuring the New York Police Department, DeMille garnered most of his fame and fortune writing political and international thrillers that demonstrated his flair for suspense, adventure, and romance.

Praise

New York Times Book Review
"DeMille has clearly studied his market. But predictability, in this case, isn't a matter for criticism. The thriller form is as technically demanding as a sonnet, and DeMille works with enormous intelligence, pacing his two narrative strands....THE LION'S GAME carries us along with a professionalism many writers, highbrow and low, should admire." - Neil Gordon 03/12/2000

Chicago Tribune Books
"DeMille has only grown stronger and more confident over the years, and while THE LION'S GAME arrives at nearly 700 pages, he keeps the plot twists coming at a lightning pace." - Chris Petrakos 02/06/2000

Entertainment Weekly
"DeMille sweeps you along with his masterful crosscutting between the good guys and the bad, slaying both the extremist Middle Eastern mindset and our own lowbrow American culture, and stumbles only with a disappointingly prosaic finale." - Charles Winecoff 01/21/2000

Kirkus Reviews
"The biggest scaled yet of DeMille's best-selling crime thrillers." 12/01/1999
