Reviews

A weekend of skydiving gets an even greater jolt of excitement when Asad Khalil, a Libyan terrorist first introduced in DeMille's (www.nelsondemille.net) New York Times best seller The Lion's Game (2000)-also available from Hachette Audio-drops from the sky to continue his vendetta against Kate Mayfield and Det. John Corey. Series narrator Scott Brick (see Behind the Mike, LJ 10/15/09) demonstrates a particular affinity for Corey, bringing humor and self-deprecation to a sometimes abrasive character. Fast paced and action-packed; sure to please thriller fans. [The New York Times best-selling Grand Central hc was described as a "fast-paced grabber of a thriller," LJ 6/15/10.-Ed.]-Janet Martin, Southern Pines P.L., NC (c) Copyright 2010.

Scott Brick, narrator of 2000's The Lion's Game, has wisely been brought back to give voice to this sequel in which the titular master assassin Asad Khalil returns to the U.S. to murder everyone who ruined his fun the first time around, including wisecracking hard-boiled federal agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield. The shocking first strike against Kate occurs in the middle of a recreational sky dive, smartly written by DeMille and heart-thumpingly enacted by Brick. The unwavering Khalil speaks in a slithery, chilling whisper, while series protagonist Corey is full of brashness and bravura. But as the plot proceeds like "a straight ball down the middle," a description provided by the author in an interview with the narrator, both of the antagonists begin to display signs of strain. Thanks to Brick, they sound a little more anxious, uncertain, and human the closer they come to their final mano a mano confrontation. A Grand Central hardcover (Reviews, May 10).
