The Lion’s Game – Nelson Demille
I received this book in hard cover for Christmas one year and I almost never read it because I hate reading hard covers. I’m glad I did though! this is book two in a series with Demille’s character John Corey in the lead role. Having just joined a new task force to battle terrorism John Corey tracks a terrorist plot across the United States. The story flows pretty well for the most part. There is a good balance between moving the story line forward and making the reader connect with the characters. I think my favorite part of the book was Corey’s inner monologue throughout the story as he is a smart ass tough guy who pretty much thinks and does what ever he wants. I believe this book would be a good read for both men and women. Don’t go into it expecting a life altering story that will change the way you think like some of the other books we have posted on the site (ATLAS SHRUGGED). This is a nice light read perfect for relaxing on a beach somewhere.
