Framing the Dialogue

The Lion

lion“The sun was in the western sky, and it shone down into the covered walkways and on the faces of the people who were part mourners and part curiosity seekers.  Some of them, Khalil thought, did not comprehend what had befallen them, and some only dimly understood why this had happened.  Most of them, he was certain, saw this event as a single incident, without context and without meaning.  The Americans lived in the moment, without history and thus without prophecy.  Their ignorance and their arrogance, and their love of comfort and their disobedience to God, were their greatest weakness.  The moment in which they lived was passing and there was no future for them.”

That’s right Asad Khalil, The Lion is back in America.  Though he did visit the ruins of the World Trade Center his visit was not so much a pleasure trip as he had some unfinished “business” to attend.  If you follow the series you can guess that the Libyan terrorist may want an audience with John Corey and his wife Kate Mayfield.  Author Nelson DeMille wrote another spectacular novel full of raw suspense and action.  Unlike some novelists DeMille doesn’t rely on new technology for the action though the action is often quite brutal.  Khalil like to take care of his business up close and personal.
