The Lion's Game is a 2000 novel by American author Nelson DeMille. It is the second of DeMille's novels to feature the detective John Corey, now working as a contractor for the fictional FBI Anti-Terrorist Task Force in New Yorkmarker.

The book opens with Corey, his new FBI boss Kate Mayfield, CIA agent Ted Nash and FBI agent George Foster (both introduced in the previous Corey novel, Plum Island), awaiting the arrival of a defecting Libyan terrorist, Asad Khalil, at John F. Kennedy Airportmarker. However, even before the Boeing 747 from Paris has landed, it becomes apparent that something is unusual about the flight.

Throughout the book is a plot that runs much deeper than the reader could have imagined, and is revealed through flashbacks of the terrorist Asad Khalil. The hero and heroine of this story would be John Corey and his would-be wife Kate Mayfield. John Corey is known for his annoying, sarcastic, and sometimes even ambivalent attitude toward his job and his social life. However underneath it all John Corey loves his job and works intensely at it.

According to the official Nelson DeMille website, a movie about The Lion's Game (and Plum Island) will be released.

The 2004 novel Night Fall is a sequel to The Lion's Game and takes place approximately one year later.
