I don't know who I love more.... Nelson DeMille or John Corey!?!? I laughed out loud, I was thoroughly entertained and was surprised throughout. A great read like all of his books.....don't know how I missed this one when it first came out. So realistic, so darn scary....sad about Kate though.

A poor attempt to write a mystery novel! Gave up after 50 pages.

Wordy, predictable. Seems like some old movie script.

I enjoy John Corey novels and this I another likeable thriller. Corey is a scruffy sarcastic James Bond type. Yes it’s an unbelievable story but the that’s why it’s called fiction.

Great as usual.

in this one demille invades Bond territory, as a SMERSH-like agent from Moscow attempts to nuke Manhattan. It's up to loose cannon John Cory to stop him. Helping Corey is a lissome govt. agent. Somehow Corey keeps not contacting his wife, who is in another agency, and is in Washington. This one has oodles of suspense, a tad or two of wit, very little lust, and the golf games and expensive meals of a Bond are absent.

Radiant Angel --- by. --- Nelson DeMille.
DeMille tells tall tales. Improbably tall tales. But he tells them well. And therein hangs the tale. John Corey, National Security Agent is supposed to be no-brain work following Soviet, scratch that Putin's Russian agents accredited to the U.N. This is work that any beat cop full of donuts could do, right?
Except, one day, Corey and his sidekick lose track of the thug their supposed to follow and come across an evil plan the vaporize New York City with a portable 12 kiloton nuclear bomb.
Improbable, yes. But still a good tale. Especially if you enjoy DeMille's penchant for giving our hero a rather sarcastic, at times dark sense of humour.
DeMilleis no stranger to outrageous plots; no stranger to story lines that resolve themselves seconds before disaster;no stranger to a hero who really has no use for by-the-rules authority. Isn't Corey a bit like many of us would like to be at least a little like?

To date DeMille has written seven John Corey novel. This is the most recent of them so I guess I'll be reading the series in reverse order.
My recommendation? Read 'em; devour 'em; enjoy 'em.
I'd give this novel six stars if I could.

A little slow and wordy. Not his best but ok.

Sadly DeMille continues his rapid descent into mediocrity. Gone is the superb writer that gave us The Gold Coast, The Gate House and Plum Island among others. This book was mainly boring, with the only object being to see how much sarcasm John Corey could come up with. Don't waste your time. DeMille no longer seems to care.
