In this sixth thriller featuring antiterrorist agent John Corey and his beautiful FBI-agent wife, Kate Mayfield, the two are sent on a highly dangerous assignment in Yemen to arrest or kill the ruthless Al Qaeda murderer known as the Panther. They were handpicked for the assignment because the CIA is using them as bait to lure the target out of hiding. Scott Brick does an excellent job reading-he captures John Corey's sarcastic humor and provides the listener with many laugh-out-loud moments. His foreign accents are flawless, and each character has a unique voice and tone. The abridgment is seamless. VERDICT Highly recommended for thriller collections.
