This is a book that I've had for ages and am finally getting to. It was recommended to me by a friend years ago and I'm sorry I didn't get to it until now. I really enjoyed the book. I now have to put the sequel, The Lion, on my To Be Read list, as well as the first in the John Corey series, Plum Island.
Detective John Corey, last seen in Plum Island,
now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the
world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who
has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his
quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and
killed his family. Filled with unrelenting suspense and surprising plot
twists at every terrifying turn, THE LION'S GAME is a heartstopping race
against time and one of Nelson DeMille's most riveting thrillers.

young people strike out in an old car into the deep desert on a
soul-searching roadtrip. Lifelong inseparable friends, each has their
own reasons for venturing out into a rarely visited landscape. Lost and
nearly out of gas, their car becomes disabled after a freak encounter
with an Acme rocket. Forced to forge ahead on foot in the night to get
help, the trio sneaks onto a top-secret airbase commanded by a tortured
and legendary officer.
group witnesses a spectacular incident between a famous determined
coyote and a speedy roadrunner. They realize that the two are not the
cartoon characters that they (and everyone else) had thought for decades
were - but are in fact real in every sense. The trio
are detained on the crumbling base and make a few good friends along
the way. They also become aware of a brilliant race of human-like
creatures and a secretive tribe of native warriors who live far out in
the vast regions of the expansive base.
trouble is on the horizon. A powerful and angry man wrongfully bent on
a terrible revenge gains entry to the base and unleashes a vast private
army upon the innocent creatures who are unprepared for war. The
invasion forces wreaks death and destruction upon the beings whose
choices become to either fight, run or hide... or all three. At the
height of the battle, Willie Coyote unleashes upon the enemy the most
diabolical machine he has ever constructed. His goal then becomes the
most important one he had during his entire life - an attempt to save
the most precious friend he never realized he even had.
Willie Coyote is one my favorite cartoon characters. He is the
embodiment of reckless, driven effort and never-ending will to win through the
use of giant boulders and dynamite sticks that would have made Nietzsche proud
:) 'The Last Friends of Willie Coyote' by Stephen Thor is an interesting attempt
to give Willie Coyote and Roadrunner a closure, of sorts. The story involves
three friends, Vaughn, Mike and Ella, finding themselves lost in a desert, and
quickly getting involved in rather bizarre adventures that quickly get out of
hand. Throw in top-secret military base, a super rich villain with murky
motives, Willie's most diabolical invention ever and you have a rather original
adventure story that has several interesting plot-lines of redemption and laying
old ghosts to rest. I suppose one cannot get lost in a desert, being surrounded
by strange phenomena, without curing a psychological trauma or two :) All
in all, this is a well polished story. Be warned, it is written in a movie
script form, so it might take you a short while to get used to a novel form of
