pure DeMille. Great wit, humor and a great thriller read.


The hunt for the treasure killer...

by Carel on May 29, 2009

Another gifted John Corey story by Nelson Demille which takes us to his uncle's home, the summer vacatipn boyhood residence of the Corey family. Suddenly, a biochemist couple are found murdered and John, who is cooperating from several bullet wounds, is ask to help with the investigation by the local police department. Intrigue and hidden agendas ever abound with John's cryptic humor and devious chicanery as he runs into his old nemises from the CIA and/or FBI.... Mr. DeMille is at his best with the John Corey stories.


Rollercoaster ride

by Reeree on Oct 30, 2008

You can't help but grow fond of the lead character--a narcissistic detective recovering from serious gunshot wounds--who gets caught up in solving the murder of friends. It is a rollercoaster ride to the end as he moves tirelessly to get to the solution. It is akin to an Indiana Jones movie in that the action keeps ahead of you and keeps pulling you along. I found it hard to put down, even though it is a big book. It is the third book of DeMille's I have read, and I would read more.


Excellent and Fun - Must Read

by rfarrah on Jan 17, 2008

I keep having to buy this book because I give it away so often. Best book I've read in a long time. There are several in the series, but this is the best of the lot. Other excellent books by the author: The Gold Coast, The General's Daughter, and The Charm School.
