The Lion's GameOwn behalf and on behalf of the Great Leader Gadhafi he has made his way to America where he is determined to wage a holy war against the murderers of his family As Khalil's history intentions and specific agenda gradually become clear Corey leads a diverse group of experts in an increasingly desperate attempt to anticipate the Lion's movements and prevent him from implementing his bloody ironic endgame As the lengthy narrative unrolls The Lion's Game moves backward in time from the present day to the night of the fateful bombing in ; the action shifts from New York City to Florida and from Florida to the Pacific Coast as DeMille skillfully switches back and forth from the first person viewpoint of John Corey to a third person narrative that takes us into the deranged perspective of Asad Khalil The result is a big wide ranging novel that is alternately funny and frightening; one that achieves an astonishing almost effortless narrative momentum; one that is grounded in DeMille's tragic view of the endlessly replicated blood feuds that dominate the landscape of th century geopolitics From its eerie opening seuence to its deliberately open ended conclusion The Lion's Game is the clear product of a world class storyteller a man who seems incapable of turning out a bland or boring paragraph DeMille is at the top of his own game in this one and has written a novel that will inevitably command a large enthusiastic audience I for one am glad to see it In a field too often populated by formulaic by the numbers fiction Nelson DeMille is an undisguised blessing I wish him health success and undiminished productivity in the decades to come Bill Sheehan reviews horror suspense and science fiction for Cemetery Dance The New York Review of Science Fiction and other publications..
