I agree with Moonbird, especially about DeMille using his publishing power for the feelings that he apparently has.

I did not finish the book. The first time I stop reading a DeMille book. John Corey's jokes are tiresome. There are too many.

About authors who have publishing power, I add Grisham and Potok.

Grisham uses his publishing power against lawyers (I agree with him 100%); Potok against the Hassidic (I do not agree with him).

They hide behind their John Coreys and their Reuven Malters. Grisham is a lawyer. Oh, and how handsome Grisham is.

If the book didn't have the John Corley whit this book would not have kept my attention. Rambles on forever!

Thought this novel would be like The Lion, but it fell short. The story was very good, but it was too drawn out. Too much filler material. Like they say "sometimes less is more". This is the case with this novel. Despite this flaw I did enjoy the story and would recommend it.

Now normally this is a GREAT author. Best on-lawn-chair-in-summer-sun author I've ever read (in this genre). But the fact this is a terrible never-ending conclusion-escaping bore in its 630 pages is not my main complaint. It is the fact that DeMille is evidently filled with hate against the Middle East and has no reservations about using his publishing power to get that message out. His smart-assed lead character advocates - page after page - nukking Yemen and on a more individual level - killing and maiming in a hundred different ways - each more offensive than the last. His jokes - after 50 pages became so tiresome that I wondered how "Grand Central Publishing" (whoever the hell they are) brought themselves to handling this dog. My suggestion: if smart ass and hate don't turn your crank, don't turn one page of this book. Oh. It's also sexist and macho in the extreme. And the diligent, honest and hard working staff in US diplomatic and military affairs must be absolutely shamed if they offered any content or review advice to him. Really really offensive and tiresome. 1/4 star for getting the page numbering right.

I loved the Lion's Game. I was not impressed with the ending of The Lion, so I thought I would give DeMille another chance and read The Panther. Gave up reading the big book so I downloaded the audio version. Lots of filler and very little action involving the Panther. I think DeMille dropped the ball on this one. I was really disappointed.

I really enjoy reading Nelson Demille books and this one is no exception. I like his writing style, sarcastic and witty. Unfortunately the book could have been about 100 pages shorter.

Nine hundred large print pages. Eight hundred pages of fillers and meat by-products. Where is the beef? Read both The Lion and the Lion's Game. This book made those books cry!

Classic DeMille and John Corey - irreverent, politically incorrect and very very funny. Also learned more than I really wanted to know about predator drones and hellfire missiles...

Another great read from DeMille. Although John Corey's sarcasm can be annoying sometimes, it also sometimes makes me laugh out loud. Very politically incorrect. A little too long, but kept me turning the pages late into the night.

John and Kate's adventure overseas in a cat and mouse game with The Panther is a slow-moving continuation/fallout of The Lion's Game. Although it provides an intriging look into the middle east through the eyes of John Corey (and his new groups of pals), the characters wit and condescending attitude at some times approaches cumbersome and the plot feels repetitive and drawn out. That being said, still an enjoyable read.
