Format: Hardcover
Colonel Vasily Petrov of the SVR receives a coded message instructing him to carry out his mission. John Corey, now working as a federal contract agent with the Diplomatic Surveillance Group, is assigned to watch Petrov. Corey and the DSG know Petrov is with the SVR but they don't know what nefarious purpose has caused him to masquerade as a diplomat. Corey is conducting surveillance with Tess, who claims to be a trainee with aspirations of joining the FBI. Corey isn't quite certain that her claim is truthful. He also has trust issues concerning his wife, which turns into a minor subplot as the story nears its conclusion.

Corey has an irreverent attitude that makes him a fun character. He holds some grudges against the CIA over a nasty incident in Yemen. He has more than a few grudges against Islamic terrorists but he's convinced that Russia continues to pose a greater security threat (an opinion that doesn't sit well with the State Department, politicians, or most of the intelligence community). Of course, following the universal law of thriller fiction, Corey is right and everyone else is wrong.

The first third of Radiant Angel, setting up the puzzle of what Petrov might be up to, is quite good. The next section, in which the focus shifts to Petrov, some Russian thugs, and a horde of hookers, is standard thriller fare. It moves quickly but the Russians are fairly dull and they're up to the same brand of mischief that has characterized Russian thriller villains for the last half century. The final third brings Corey and Tess back into the picture and the fun resumes.

Nelson DeMille kicked the rust off of a reliable formula and put it back in action, creating an unimaginative story that nevertheless conveys a sense of realism.

OK. So I don't usually do reviews but after finishing Radiant Angel I need to vent. As many other have pointed out, this is not the best work Mr. DeMille has done. This is not the DeMille who brought us Charm School, or Word of Honor, or The General's Daughter. And this is by far the worst John Corey book in the series way below Corey Classics like the The Lions Game and Night Fall. It is not even a match for The Panther which was not my favorite Corey book. If this book was a movie, it would be a straight-to-dvd or made-for-tv production and feels that way. Perhaps the influence of his son who is a screen writer? It is fairly short (not that long pages make a better book), almost like an extended "short story", it feels rushed, and lacks depth of characters and plot. John Corey himself is not himself and feels a little to tried and tired (and this is from someone who loves John). The romantic liaison is out of place and also tired and the unnecessary made-up side plot line about the possible infidelity of Kate Manfield seems like a week argument to allow for the possible attraction and flirting between John and his new much-younger partner. I waited a long time for the latest Corey episode and even pre-ordered the book in anticipation, in the end, I felt like I just watched another installment of the "Die Hard" series with John Corey in the place of Bruce Willis. For now I will go back and re-read the DeMille classics and hope that the next book lives up to its predecessors.

HUGE DEMILLE FAN HERE. SO... By far his least entertaining book. Complete let down. I am so disappointed. I would rather believe some imposter wrote this than the man who captivated us with so many intelligent top notch titles. What happened? Seriously! I am stunned at the lack of everything we have come to expect from Nelson DeMille. Setting aside the horrible plot-- minor spoiler here-- Kate is just vaguely upset with him? What? WHAT? She doesn't know him by now?... uggh I am so pissed ... this work was obviously rushed. Please Mr. DeMille take your time with the next one. We will still be here for you.

I have always loved the sarcastic whit of John Corey and I liked the relationship between John and Kate the main characters in the John Corey series of books. I was very disappointed in the last book of the series "The Panther" but hoped that this new book "Radiant Angel" would be better - sorry - in my opinion it was a waste of my money - I have all of Nelson DeMille's books and I must say the last two books have been below standard. What is happening here? What has happened to John and Kate? no explanation given - it just leaves you kind of hanging out there. This newest novel "Radiant Angel" seemed way too short after the length of the previous novels. The story line just didn't seem right. The sarcastic whit seemed to be a bit off - no communication between John and Kate thought out the whole book - a text message only. The impression given that Kate is having an affair with her boss - what! You can't just jump into a new book without tying up loose ends - at the end of the previous book there was no indication that John & Kate would be a couple no longer - Get you act together Mr. DeMille - I expect better writing than this.

Tore through this book in 24 hours. Only sorry it wasn't longer. I'm a big fan of Mr. DeMille and a big fan of the John Corey character. Several other reviewers have given an overview of the story, so I won't repeat it here. To me, the John Corey character seemed a little toned down. I agree with one of the other reviewers that I could have done without the pages devoted to the Russian Characters. Spoiler Alert: I was a little sorry to see the end of the Kate Mayfield John Corey relationship. At some point, Corey has got to get old enough that the young females quit falling for him. However, since a man writes these perhaps not. In the Acknowledments, Mr. DeMille thanks his son Alex, a screenwriter, for helping him tell the story with an economy of words. Don't want that. If I'm paying $20 for a book on Amazon on the first day of release, I'd like it to last longer than 24 hours. The Panther, which I was rereading when Radiant Angel arrived, clocked in at 625 pages - more bang for the buck! Don't listen to your screenwriter son, Mr. DeMille. We like long books. Since it will probably be awhile before another DeMille book is published, guess I will have to go back to Plum Island and reread them all. Please keep writing Mr. DeMille.
