A dated but well written 1970s style terrorism thriller. ( )

This book was a good one. Terrifyingly realistic, reads the text on the back cover, but that indeed sums it up.

The plotting of a terrorist attack, its players and the lawinforcement to coubteract on little information. I liked it a lot. ( )

A perfectly decent thriller with a rather improbable storyline about a terrorist attack in the US, involving a large building, an aircraft and a bunch of Arabs.

The writing's pulled back emotionally, almost report-like, though not without humour. I rooted for the baddies all the way through. ( )

The lives of 80,000 people gathered for Superbowl Sunday in New Orleans are threatened by a diabolical group of international terrorists. Spellbinding, fast-paced suspense is guaranteed once again from the acclaimed author of Silence of the Lambs. Reissue. ( )

What a disappointment! I thought for sure the author/creator of Hannibal Lector would be a little more interesting. The premise is fantastic -- too bad the execution suffers. The characters are almost caricatures except for Rabakov. The possibilities for suspense are wonderful but he doesn't quite pull it off. ( )
