The most gripping, the most exciting, the most relentlessly entertaining novel yet from one of the world's most popular storytellers.
Asad Khalil - aka 'The Lion' - is the most dangerous man alive. A ruthless Libyan terrorist with an agenda of death and destruction, he has come to the US to seek out his number one enemy, ex-NYPD homicide detective John Corey.
But Corey is equally intelligent, equally ruthless - and equally determined to wipe Khalil off the face of the earth....
From the first page to the last line, this is a breakneck-paced race against time between two utterly driven men, between good and breathtaking evil. Acclaimed as the finest of Nelson DeMille's John Corey thrillers, it is the perfect introduction or re-introduction to one of the most compelling heroes in fiction.
