When "The Lion's Game" was published in 2000, it was an instant critically acclaimed "New York Times" bestseller. Now Special Agent John Corey returns to confront Asad Khalil, the Libyan terrorist known as . . . THE LION The last time Federal Agent John Corey of the Anti-Terrorist Task Force heard from Khalil, he claimed he was defecting to the U.S.-only to unleash a deadly reign of destruction on American soil. As Corey and FBI agent Kate Mayfield chased him across the country, Khalil eliminated his victims one by one and then disappeared without a trace. Now, after the events of September 11, Khalil has resurfaced, returning to murder a select group of enemies, with Kate and John topping the list. As the bodies begin to pile up, John Corey finds himself back on the hunt. The Lion is a killing machine on a mission of revenge-and Corey will stop at nothing to find and kill Khalil before he himself is killed.
