The short story “Eyes of the Panther” was published in in line with Bierce’s flair for short stories. The setting of the story is in the forest with a twist at the end. There is a supernatural element present throughout the story, the panther, its apparitions and the eyes.
The last 3rd of the book, is where they are trying to kill the panther. There is 6 members on the team, and its always John Corey being the brains or the action hero. I also did not like the CIA sub-plot in the book, it was very unbelievable.4/4(K).
