Nelson DeMille’s book The Lion’s Game is a thriller that will captivate you beyond the mere reading of the book. Long after reading it, you will still be thinking about the character – John Corey and Kate Mayfield, and the victims of the Lion – wondering how something like this could happen and what might we do to prevent it. The story will remind you of Frederick Forysth’s 1971 book, The Day of the Jackal, and Fred Zinnemann’s film, which was released in 1973. However, you will be more than a little charmed by John Corey and Kate Mayfield, members of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, as they unravel the plot and pursue the perpetrator across country. Corey’s witticism and humor and his budding relationship with Mayfield will delight you. Despite its 926 pages, you will find this book to be one that you will not be able to put down until it’s finished. I highly recommend it.
