Book Description

5 Dec 2006
When the game begins in New Orleans this Super Bowl Sunday . . . 80,000 people had better get ready to die.

The Super Bowl--where thousands have gathered for an all-American tradition. Suddenly it's the most terrifying place on earth . . .

Michael Lander is the most dangerous man in America. He pilots a television blimp over packed football stadiums every weekend. He is fascinated with explosives. And he happens to be very, very crazy. That's why a beautiful PLO operative has seduced him. That's why--on Super Bowl Sunday--the world will witness the bloody assassination of the U. S. president and the worst mass murder in history. Unless someone discovers what Michael Lander plans . . . and can kill him first.

From the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding 24 Mar 2008
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I throughly enjoyed reading this book, and, although it maybe heresy to say this, I think I enjoyed it even more than some of the Lectre books, especially Hannibal and Hannibal rising. I also found it especially interesting as I've been recently doing a lot of research into John McCain (a former Vietnam POW) over the last few months, and it was fascinating to read Harris's depiction of life in a Vietnam POW camp. I do, however, agree with other comments, that this is very much a thriller, and if you don't particuarly like thrillers, then this prehaps is not the best Thomas Harris book for you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relentless 1 Aug 2007
By Mr. Warren M. Fisher VINE VOICE
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
While completely different on the surface from Harris's Lecter novels, this too deals with the nature of madness, evil and guilt. As addictive as Harris's best work, this is dark, densely plotted and utterly compelling, and although focussing on politically-inspired terrorists as opposed to religious fundamentalism this still has a lot to say about MIddle East politics and the intractable terrorist mindset.

Probably one of the best terrorist/counter-terrorist novels ever written, this proves that their is more to Harris than Hannibal Lecter. A thrilling and utterly relentless read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Hard work to like this... 19 Jun 2009
By Mr
Format:Mass Market Paperback
If you have read and enjoyed the pacing, plot development and cold brutal characters of Silence of the Lambs and Red Dragon the stay away from Black Sunday. It is clearly an early novel from a good thriller writer but too often the plot plods along at a snails pace and the shocking, punchy passages that deliniate his later work are missing here. The plotline is interesting now in our post 9/11 world, and is in places scary to read when one realises this was written in the mid seventies. However, even this doesn't make up for the nuts and bolts thriller approach. If you are new to Thomas Harris start with Red Dragon, the book where he really came of age and had something new and vital to add to the thriller genre.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing compared to his other books 1 Feb 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I read this book a couple of years ago, having read Red Dragon and Silence. While I greatly enjoyed these, I found this book to be completely diferent, more in the line of a thriller, which genre is not my favourite. I found the book to be relatively shallow and not particularly well developed. It did not particularly engage me and I would not recommend it to anyone who would look at it on the basis of his subsequent books.
