Written prior to 9/11 interestingly enough this book details a terrorist using aeroplanes to not only bomb but also crash into targets. A little ahead of it's time it seems.

It was a reasonable tale, however the pace of the novel does stumble 1/4-1/3 of the way in after the initial action with a bit of a detour with the terrorist taking advice from a astrologer and a few other tidbits that didn't really flow well into the story's narrative in my opinion. This little hiccup however once passed is forgotten as the book resumes the action and the forces of good attempt to tackle the forces of, well, terrorism.

I wouldn't say it is Brown's best work but it was still a pretty solid and entertaining book. ( )

Best book I have read in a long time - action adventure from page one, action so detailed you can imagine being the pilot of the F16 that is in pursuit, pushing every button he does, feeling the adrenalin rising, feeling the pressure. This is a book that you can't put down. The plot weaves very believably at the beginning and works toward a spectacular, albeit unbelievable but fun, conclusion. ( )
