Author Info
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
"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."
"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."
"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."
"The biggest scaled yet of DeMille's best-selling crime thrillers."
From the Publisher
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.
Editors Note Detective John Corey sets out to capture the world's most dangerous terrorist--a young Arab known as "The Lion"--a man who will stop at nothing in his quest for vengeance against America for bombing Libya and killing his family. 500,000 first printing. Tour.
Editors Note 2 Detective John Corey, last seen in Plum Island, now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and killed his family. Filled with unrelenting suspense and surprising plot twists at every terrifying turn, THE LION'S GAME is a heartstopping race against time and one of Nelson DeMille's most riveting thrillers.
Editors Note 3 John Corey, having survived three bullet wounds on the NYPD, knows that he's used up his allotment of good luck. Nevertheless, he signs on as a contract agent with the Federal government's Anti-Terrorist Task Force, working in the high-pressure Mideast section. Kate Mayfield is John's senior in rank and junior in age - a bad combination for both of them. Even so, she is able to hold her own against John's brash style, his contempt for Federal agents, and his obsession with doing everything his way.|As a bloody trail of terror streaks across the country, John and Kate soon learn that their quarry is more than a man; he has the instincts of a wild animal, the blood lust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey. The cunning, violence, and ruthlessness that Corey encounters are like nothing he has ever experienced before, even on the streets of New York. Until this assignment, Corey has always been lucky in dodging the fatal bullet. But luck, as he's learned on the streets, at the gambling table, and in love, always runs out. To survive in a new game with no rules at all, he must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all...
