Lion's Game/DeMille, Nelso/Paper/0316848123/S056-D2
His game. His rules. Their blood.
From a special observation post in New York's JFK Airport, members of the elite Anti-Terrorist Task Force wait for a passenger arriving from Paris: an alleged Libyan terrorist known as "the Lion", who is defecting to the West. Amongst those marking time are agents John Corey and Kate Mayfield, John's senior in rank and junior in age - a bad combination considering his brash style and obsession with doing everything his way.
Everything is going as planned: Flight 175 with its hundreds of passengers, including the Libyan and his CIA and FBI escorts, is right on schedule. Yet it soon becomes apparent that something is horribly, eerily wrong. And that the affair of Flight 175 is only a prelude to what is to follow...
As a bloody trail of terror streaks across the country, John and Kate soon learn that their quarry is more than a man: he has the instincts of a wild animal, the blood lust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey. Until this assignment, Corey has always been lucky in dodging the fatal bullet. But luck, as he's learned on the streets, at the gambling table, and in love, always runs out. To survive in a new game with no rules at all, he must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all...
