    One thought on “The Panther

    1. Revo

      It took two weeks (12 days longer than it takes for me to read a good DeMille book) but I finished. I feel like I deserve a prize.What was wrong? Plenty.-The villian was a lightweight, both underexplained and dull.-In the few times the villian is featured, he's introduced with his full name followed by 'the Panther', in case we all forget the name of the book. -There were enourmous stretches of Yemeni history (about 6 straight pages worth at one point) that did NOTHING to add to the story. -John [...]

      I don't know how to begin to express how much I love the character of John Corey. He is often so obnoxious and inappropriate, yet somehow to me remains adorable and attractive. I admire the character of Kate, who is well matched to handle John and his antics. They make a wonderful couple. This installment in the series captured my attention in the beginning and held it throughout. I liked the storyline, and thought this book did justice to the series, which is one of my all time favorites.John C [...]

      Horriblea waste of time to read. I have read every Nelson DeMille book and am a big fan. I get his newsletter every month and was waiting to read this book for a long time. It opens great. The next action scene is around page 300ech.I told my wife that if it wasn't for DeMille I'd stop reading this. Anyway when I got to page 475 and the same old stuff had been regurgitated for another 175 pages I was going to put it down.but it was a DeMille book and I had to keep going. Finally there was classi [...]

      A story that is vintage John Corey (and his wife Kate). The two of them travel into 'the belly of the beast' this time. It's got the usual DeMille array of laughs, insights and top-notch action - a great read!

    5. StoryTellerShannon

      MINI REVIEW: Corey is back. Maybe not better than ever but if you're a fan like myself then it's fun to revisit with the character. This time around he and his wife are being used as bait to catch a terrorist leader nicknamed “The Panther” in the Middle East (Sana'a, Yemen which is one of the most dangerous spots for Americans). Corey is his usual wisecracking and musing self but he does it so much at the expense of the plotting that you sometimes realize 50 pages have passed and you're stil [...]

    6. Clara

      As far as DeMille books go, this is the lower-middle end of the road. The jokes often fall flat, especially in the latter half, and John Corey's culturally insensitive ("politically incorrect")commentary on the Yemenis is both hackneyed (ex: how many camels does it take to?) and actively infuriating. I get that Corey is not the most cultured/sensitive/scholarly man in contemporary "lit," but his portrayal of Yemenis is so confidently one-sided that I nearly put the book down. I'd rather see the [...]

      I am a major DeMille fan. I ordered The Panther the moment it was announced. I was so excited it was coming. On publication day when I heard Paul Bremmer was in the book I was gleeful. I cannot begin to express how let down I was by the experience of reading the book. There are many factors that contribute to my low rating1] The characters are becoming caricatures. John Corey is the wise cracking hero. I know Mr. DeMille pictures him as Bruce Willis; but this is turning into all the 'one-liners' [...]

    8. Shelley Fearn

      The opening chapter in The Lion's Game hooked me in what has turned into DeMille's John Corey series. That title was followed by The Lion that continued the fight against terrorism with Corey and his wife Kate Mayfield, members of the Joint Terrorism Task Force. However, I think it's time for the series to end. In the latest installment Corey and Mayfield are sent to Yemen to track down one of the Al Queda masterminds behind the Cole bombing. What could have been a thrilling novel is hindered by [...]

    9. Matt

      DeMille returns with another sensational novel that taps into the multi-faceted adventures of NYPD Detective John Corey, one of his most popular characters. Examining another realm of the Islamic extremists and Corey’s ongoing skirmishes with those high in the al-Qaida chain of command, the novel grabs the reader's attention from start to finish! DeMille mixes a very serious storyline, filled with detail and historical background, with a dialogue dripping with sarcasm and off-handed humour (Co [...]

    10. Rachel

      The only reason I gave this even 1 star is because of my loyalty to DeMille and John Corey. But holy crap what a bad book. I only forced myself to read through the whole thing so I could be complete in my reading of the Corey books. But like all other 1 star readers have said in their reviews, this book was not even in the same league as the others. I would estimate the whole 450 middle pages were painfully detailed aboutot making and the land of Yemen and its people. No action whatsoever. Not w [...]

    11. Carol

      I am a big fan of this series, but John Corey #6 was disappointing and, IMO, 300 pages too long. There are unexpected plot twists and turns, and when there is action, it is exciting and fast moving; however, it does take a very long time to get there and is a small part of the 600+ pages of the book. Additionally, while I normally enjoy Corey's sarcasm and witty comments, about half-way through the book, for me, they came across as annoying and overdone. Despite the negative comments, I still di [...]

    12. Zora

      Spoiler alert: nothing happens. End of spoiler alert. Reading this book to experience reading a thriller is like eating white rice to satisfy a craving for a rare steak.Remember how solid a thriller Nightfall was? Yeah, me too. (sigh) And that memory is what kept me reading to page 300. I kept thinking, "okay, here I am at page 50, and I'll say in my review to start there because nothing happens in the first 50 pages." And I thought that again at page 93 and again and again and again as I read o [...]

    13. RJ

      Nelson DeMille’s John Corey Series is one of my Top 5 all-time favorites. That said, The Panther was too long and too slow. In Chapter 2, John and Kate are asked to participate in a dangerous mission to Yemen, and don’t actually reach the Yemeni airport until Chapter 16. This is typical of the novel’s pacing. Most of the long gaps between action scenes were bridged by John’s wit and DeMille’s desire to share huge chunks of research on Yemen. If the novel was a meal and the action & [...]

    14. James Sparks

      I am a big Nelson DeMille fan. I loved The Lion's Game, Night Fall, and Wild Fire.Unfortunately, DeMille seems to now be interested in authoring Big Cat Diaries!The Panther was massively disappointing. Perhaps it was a self-inflicted disappointment as I had such high expectations and over eagerness in waiting for the next John Corey installment. It seems to be a steady decline from DeMille. The Lion's Game was great but the follow up, The Lion, seemed to miss the spot a bit. I put that down as a [...]

    15. Gloria Feit

      It must get harder and harder for an author to sustain a popular series. In time, the characters become long in the tooth, and the plots more difficult to create. Such is the case in this 600-plus-page novel in the John Corey/Kate Mayfield series. This time, following the last adventure in which they killed The Lion, the husband-and-wife team is tasked with finding an American, known as The Panther, who returned to Yemen to lead an al Qaeda terrorist group.Apparently The Panther was instrumental [...]

    16. Nilesh

      Disappointing on almost all fronts. DeMille's Corey is known for his political incorrectness, but the one-liners are too tasteless, over-the-top and prejudiced in this book. The descriptions are so repetitive with the same feelings of distaste, disrespect and narrow chauvnism whipped up again and again. The good guy's actions are not only from a single viewpoint, but the utter disregard for someone else's norms, territory and right for views is galling. The most bizzare is when an unsuspecting l [...]

    17. Lauren Jenkins

      Anyone who is a fan of DeMille's John Corey series will want to read this book, but I have to say, I was disappointed. I'm still glad I read it -- but I was let down. While Corey's acerbic wit and politically incorrect humor are ever-present, 85% of the book is dialogue in and out of Corey's head, with very little action. The ins and outs of a double-crossing, convoluted mission in Yemen require some explanation, sure-- but not at the expense of what could have been an action story like many of [...]

    18. Malcolm

      For the first time, John Corey seemed like a bit of an a** to me. This book tracks John and his wife through an adventure into Yemen against a known terrorist (the Panther, no spoiler there). The exploration into International intrigue was interesting, but there was a quality of stupidity to his character that grated on me, just a little bit.One particular example (which I will keep vague, no major spoilers again) involves the procedures for interacting with foreign intelligence/police personnel [...]

    19. Debbie

      John Corey NYPD retired and Kate Mayfield FBI have more in common that marriage, they work together for the multi-departmental, Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force. They’ve been through a lot together and fighting terrorists is nothing new. A past threat has risen, an American born jihadist and al-Qaeda top guy known as The Panther. He’s the suspected mastermind of the USS Cole bombing plus any number of atrocities against innocent victims and men-at-arms in the name of radical Islam. Kate and [...]

    20. Kimberly

      I really wanted to give this book five stars. This book went past the point of believability, even for someone who loves conspiracies. I love John Corey, but he was hard to handle in this book. His sarcasm went over the top and made him not very likable. Kate and John are called into their boss's office and told that they are needed in Yemen to capture and bring back an American citizen who is now an Al Quada leader and had masterminded the bombing of an American ship, killed Americans and other [...]

    21. George Lichman

      Years ago I read The Gold Coast by Nelson DeMille; I wasn't impressed. While an interesting story, I thought it was too long and too slow. Since then, friends have pushed more from DeMille. I resisted.Until now. I got my hands on an early copy of DeMille's latest novel, The Panther, released Tuesday October 16, 2012. It is the latest in the John Corey/Kate Mayfield series. The short version of this review: I can't believe I've missed the first five in the series. I have a lot of catching up to d [...]

    22. Corey

      To be brutally honest, I had the toughest time making the decision to rate this book either a 3 or 4 star because it had a lot of pros and cons, I thought.First I'll start with the prosThe setting in the Middle EastDeMille bringing in the main character Paul Brenner from one of his older bestsellers The General's DaughterJohn Corey's normal sarcastic behaviorNow for the consI felt they didn't focus much on Kate's character in this installmentThe Panther was kind of a weak villain The ending felt [...]

    23. Margarida

      Este foi dos livros de Nelson DeMille, da saga John Corey, que mais demorei a ler. Gostei, mas não gostei tanto como dos outros, por uma razão muito simples: o ritmo é mais lento. Não há a acção vertiginosa a que nos habituamos com os livros anteriores, está mais desenvolvido o enredo da "teoria da conspiração" e da paranóia americana. Sempre presente continua a estar o humor e sarcasmo de John Corey.Desiludiu-me um bocado, o arrastar da acção até estarem no terreno, no Iémen, à [...]

    24. Adam Light

      Decent, if not exactly top notch, installment in the John Corey series. This time Kate and he have to travel to Yemen where they will be bait for a ruthless terrorist known as The Panther.I was happily surprised when another running character, Paul Brenner (The General's Daughter and Up Country), showed up as part of the American team. He gives Corey's sardonic, cynical attitude a run for the money. Corey must stay alert and on his toes if he is going to prove he is the funnier of the two. My on [...]

    25. Skip

      Ex-NYC cop John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, are sent to Yemen to smoke out the Panther, an American-born Yemeni and Al Qaeda leader responsible for the attack on the USS Cole. As in the previous five novels, John's running wise crack and running commentary are the backbone of this series so if you like them, you'll like the books. Not to give too much away, but the good guys kill the bad guys, despite some treachery. The editors could have done better -- it was at least 100 page [...]

    26. Yvonne

      I was all set to like this book and it did not disappoint. I love John Corey and Kate Mayfield and was thrilled to find another of my favorite characters from other Demille's books in the mix along with them. I received this as a digital advance readers copy from Net Galley.

      The October 12, 2000, terrorist attack on the USS Cole, an American guided missle destroyer at port in Aden, Yemen is the historical backdrop of the latest John Corey- Kate Mayfield thriller from Nelson DeMille.Bulus ibn al-Darwish, an American born Al Qaeda terrorist operating in Yemen has been identified by the CIA and FBI as the mastermind behind the Cole attack, in which 6 American sailors died and over 30 were wounded. Al-Darwish, known as the Panther, needs killing, but he is hiding in Yem [...]

    28. Rex Fuller

      John Corey, irreverent, anti-PC, and funny in a wise-cracking way as the lead character in DeMille’s main series, shined brightest in the 2017 collection of short mysteries entitled Matchup. The first book of the series, Plum Island, hooked me and I then read straight through them all.The Panther (Corey Book 6). Bulus ibn al-Darwish “al Numair” (the panther) affects a Bedouin heritage for his terrorist persona in Yemen. But he was really born in New Jersey. This whole “why and how does a [...]

      John Corey, an Antiterrorist Task Force Agent, and his FBI Agent wife, Kate Mayfield, are posted to Yemen. Their mission is to track down a high-ranking Al Queda bad guy known as The Panther. In case your geography is rusty, Yemen is bordered on the north by Saudi Arabia and the east by Oman. John and Kate are actually bait to bring The Panther out of hiding so they and their CIA and State Department teammates can eliminate him. Nelson DeMille has written about our two protagonists before in Th [...]

    30. John Purcell

      It had a pretty good ending, but it had two things that worked against it, resulting in only two stars. If it didn't pick up like it did in the last 100 pages, it would have been 1 star. 1. It was too long. Almost 900 pages (on my ereader). It could have been cut in half and accomplished the same thing. The plot didn't warrant that many pages. John Corey is tasked with finding the Panther, the American born jihadist mastermind behind the bombing of the USS Cole in Yemen in 2000. He goes to Yemen [...]
